However this does not mean that animal testing will be disappearing completely because 1. animal testing is still allowed for medicine and 2. it is still allowed on other continents. Now if you live outside the EU or if you plan on buying cosmetics outside the EU you can simply stick to the brands you know will not do animal testing (such as Lush for example) or you can read Peta´s list with most of the companies that do animal testing here. The list claims to have been updated today so it should be quite reliable. The list mostly contains brands by the following common groups: Johnson &Johnson, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Estée Lauder, L'Oreal and some more.
What is your opinion about animal testing? Have you been bothered about this issue before and do you think it´s good that products tested on animals will not be sold in the EU anymore? What is your favourite 100% cruelty-free shop?
