The Loopholes of Animal Testing Cosmetic Products in Australia

The Loopholes of Animal Testing Cosmetic Products in Australia

Did you know that testing a finished cosmetic product on animals is not permitted in Australia? How great is that?!⁠

HOWEVER- chemicals can still be tested on animals if they can justify that the ingredient for non-cosmetic purposes.⁠

What this means, is that a chemical ingredient that is going to be used in a foundation (cosmetic) AND a washing detergent (non-cosmetic) can STILL be tested on animals.⁠

Because of this “multi-use” loophole, many ingredients are still tested on animals to be used in cosmetic products in Australia.⁠

This is not to mention that the majority of current Australian cosmetics contain imported ingredients which have been tested on animals in another country at some point in time.⁠

And Australia is known for it’s strict regulations! Imagine a country that is not!⁠

According to PeTA, the following companies still pay for their products to be tested on animals in China;⁠

CLINIQUE⁠

ESTEE LAUDER⁠

MARY KAY⁠

MAYBELLINE⁠

Companies that do not test on animals will be super proud to tell you and will have it marked on the labels. ⁠
