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.
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.
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.
