Animal testing of cosmetics
HUL is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are supporting the transition to non-animal methods and the effective implementation of the ban [of animal testing on cosmetics in India]. We believe it is important that all stakeholders - companies, government and NGOs - work together and continue to invest in developing non-animal testing methods to ensure product safety. We fully comply with Indian regulations.
The fact that leading companies, governments and NGOs such as Humane Society International & Institute for In Vitro Sciences, continue to invest considerable technical resources in the development of non-animal methods is testament to the lack of technical solutions at a global regulatory level. We believe it is important that all stakeholders, including NGOs, work together to build the scientific capability needed to successfully implement the ban.
