The era of cosmetic animal testing is almost over. China is ready to revise its policy, meaning cosmetic brands wishing to enter the market have to eventually abandon animal testing. The regulations will come into life on January 1, 2021.
According to previous Chinese regulations, all cosmetics had to be tested on animals before they could be put on the market. However, some time ago, China’s National Administration of Medical Products began work on modernizing cosmetic safety. These changes will come into life after years of pressure from PETA. Changing regulations are a breakthrough that could have a profound impact on the entire beauty industry.
