    Animal testing for cosmetics has always been a controversial topic. Many countries restrict strictly on animal testing for cosmetics out of humanism and the access of alternatives. But it’s a legal requirement in China for imported cosmetics to test on animals due to the characteristics of botanical ingredients and late start of AAT validation, which hindered many cosmetic brands from entering this huge market.

    During the webinar, Ms. Hedy He from ChemLinked will firstly analyze the regulations on animal testing in different countries, then share the latest developments of AAT validation in China obtained by REACH24H’s regulatory experts from NIFDC’s conference, finally provide several ways of entering Chinese cosmetic market circumventing animal testing with the analysis of specific cases.
