WE NEED YOUR HELP! The UK government are looking at allowing animal testing on cosmetics AGAIN!

According to an article in The Guardian (11th August 2021) ‘Ministers have opened the door to expanding the use of animal testing to ingredients used in cosmetic products for the first time in 23 years, an animal welfare charity has said.

Cruelty Free International (CFI) said animal testing on ingredients exclusively used in cosmetics – which was banned in the UK in 1998 – could be required, after being told by the Home Office that the government had “reconsidered its policy.”

In a letter, the government said it was aligning itself with a decision made last year by the appeals board of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), which said that some ingredients used only in cosmetics needed to be tested on animals to ensure they were safe’

I am an independent consultant and Area Manager with The Body Shop At Home and I am proud that all our products are, and always have been, cruelty free. The Body Shop, founded by Anita Rodrick, began campaigning to ban animal testing in 1989, the first global cosmetics company to do so. Let’s not let the UK government undo all that hard work and revert to archaic practices to fall in line with EU regulation! There are thousands of amazing beauty products out there that aren’t not tested on animals so it seems completely unnecessary.
