What about in China?

In China, the regulatory authorities carry out within their evaluation centers animal tests for finished cosmetics products before these are placed on their market. We think these tests are unnecessary but we cannot prevent them.
We are working in close collaboration with the different Chinese regulatory authorities to bring rapid change to the regulatory framework of cosmetics products which requires animal testing, so can be recognized the many alternative methods that are already validated in many other countries.
L’Oréal thus contributed in November 2013 to the first-phase for the validation of a skin irritation alternative method in China.
