New Zealand Bans Cosmetic Testing On Animals

Posted by Mike Confino, April 3, 2015


No one needs to test cosmetics on animals, one more country has decided.

The government of New Zealand is the latest to move toward banning animal testing for “finished cosmetic products and their ingredients” — which has not historically happened in the country — and now, likely never will.

The amendment to the Animal Welfare Amendment Bill passed a debate phase on Tuesday and is expected to be enacted into law in the coming weeks. New Zealand’s Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy applauded the symbolic move.
