Sweet, celebratory news from HSUS: China’s Food & Drug Administration has announced that starting June 2014, China plans to remove its mandatory animal testing for domestically manufactured cosmetic products!
This is so HUGE, I can’t even tell you! As you know, China unfortunately makes practically everything!
M’kay, but what about imported beauty goods?
From HSUS’s press release:
“Initially the new rules will only apply to cosmetics manufactured in China. However, CFDA has stated that once the new system has been established, it may be expanded to include imported products and certain ‘special use’ cosmetics as well. This would be a major step towards removing trade barriers between China and the EU, enabling cruelty-free companies worldwide to sell their products on the Chinese mainland without compromising their ‘no animal testing’ policies.”
Keep your fingers crossed, compassionate cuties (will keep y’all posted)! xx
