Body Shop welcomes China's new approachDecember 2013
The Body Shop has welcomed signals that the Chinese authorities are adopting a new approach to testing for cosmetics for domestically manufactured ordinary products (such as shampoo, skincare or perfume).
Ceo and chairman Jeremy Schwartz commented: “As the first beauty company to take action against animal testing for cosmetics, these reports mark a truly historic moment. We congratulate the Chinese authorities for this important decision.”
The Body Shop was the first and most long-standing cosmetics company to take action on the issue of animal testing for cosmetic purposes. It started its campaign in 1989 and was the first major voice on the subject. All The Body Shop products are both vegetarian and none are tested on animals. This principal was established in 1989.
The Body Shop was the first international cosmetics company to be certified under the Humane Cosmetics Standard.
