Thought it was a thing of the past? Shocking investigation reveals the big beauty brands are STILL being tested on animals

[*]Animal testing was banned in the UK in 1997 and in the EU in 2009
[*]But in China, products manufactured outside country must be tested on animals
[*]While big brands do not undertake testing themselves, they know the fees they pay for access to Chinese market may fund tests


Fluffy white rabbits jump excitedly around their cages. But they are not at a pet shop, about to be taken to a loving home — they are waiting their turn to be tested on. Cosmetics such as moisturiser will be dripped into their eyes and slathered onto shaved backs. This will often leave them in pain and may render them blind. Afterwards, they are usually unceremoniously killed. If this sounds so horrifying it must be illegal, that’s because it is — in the UK at least. But while animal testing was banned in the UK in 1997 and in the EU in 2009, some of Britain’s most popular brands are still funding testing on animals. Incredible as it seems, this is the beauty industry’s dirty little secret, and the price brands such as Clinique, Lancome, Kiehl’s, L’Oreal Paris, Olay, Nivea, Mac, La Mer, Dior, Caudalie, Benefit and many more pay in order to sell their products in China.
