XCellR8’s Carol Treasure and Chris Longmore, talk to Cosmetics Business about the difference between ‘cruelty-free’ and ‘animal-free’ and how brands can ensure their products are not tested on animal-derived products.

The assumption that everything in Europe is cruelty-free is a little less concrete than we thought it was. In some cases, non-animal testing might still involve animal-cruelty and animal suffering.

REACH regulation still requires animal-testing in some cases. There has always been a conflict between those regulations. The European Chemical Agency recently ruled that some animal tests were required for cosmetic ingredients.

Sometimes, cosmetic companies producing vegan products might unwittingly be using animal components, such as FBS (foetal bovine serum), in their testing supply chain.

About XCellR8:
We are a UK based, vegan testing lab. We only use human cell culture to carry out testing and we are committed to ensuring no animal cell culture, such as animal-based serums, tissues or antibodies, are used for our tests.
