No animal tests for beauty anymore

From March 11, 2013, cosmetics tested on animals cannot be sold in the EU anymore. This applies to products from the EU as well as to cosmetics produced in other parts of the world. There have been partial bans from 2004, but with exceptions. However, chemicals that are used for cosmetics can still be tested on animals. Therefor the label "without animal tests" is only partly correct.
