EU bans cosmetics with animal-tested ingredients

European Union has finally banned all cosmetics to be tested and used on animals. This serves as a great example for all other countries who still do not have that law in place. Now many rabbits, mice, and guinea pigs are being are able to live, we will unlikely notice immediate changes because the supplies that are on the shelves today have already been tested.However, after one year that will change. Banning animal tested has affected a lot of the economy in the US, for the Europeans are now not buying cosmetics that animal testing has taken place. US and China are now having to cooperate with this new law although they don’t have any law in place.  European Union can still sell cosmetics that are tested on animals but they do not manufacture any in the country anymore.
