Last month, Switzerland enacted a law that effectively bans the sale of cosmetics tested on animals countrywide. 

The Swiss Federal Council proposed the ban in March last year, the enactment of which removes all products tested on animals from Swiss cosmetics retailers. 

‘The right thing’

“We are delighted that Switzerland will no longer allow cosmetics for which animals have suffered to be sold in the country,” Cruelty Free International CEO Michelle Thew said

“This move is the next step in our 20-year campaign to end cruel animal testing everywhere and forever.” 

Thew also urged other governing bodies to take action, stating: “It is time now for every government to step up and do the right thing.” 

Earlier this month, Denmark announced it would phase out chemical testing on animals by 2025 in its efforts to be a world leader in scientific innovation and compassion.
