Brexit – cosmetics and testing laws

Despite Brexit, the cosmetics industry has been reassured that EU regulations and safety laws still govern. Many consumers are concerned about the EU’s ban on animal testing for cosmetic products and ingredients, but the Cosmetic Toiletry & Perfumery Association (CTPA) has reassured them that the strict safety laws will not be altered as long as the UK is a member of the UK. Cosmetic companies operating outside of the EU also have to comply with the ban in order to trade in the region, making it less likely that any new legislation would reverse the ban
