2. ARE ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS BEING USED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF COSMETICS AND/OR TOBACCO PRODUCTS?

No. Since 2004 it is forbidden within the EU to test cosmetic products by means of animal experiments. Starting from 2009 it is prohibited to test cosmetic ingredients in animals in the EU member states. Since 2013 there is even a ban on the import of cosmetic products and ingredients that were tested on animals elsewhere in the world. Since 2011 animal experiments for the development of tobacco products are forbidden as well.
