We are actively advocating for the worldwide acceptance of existing alternative animal-free test methods by respective authorities.
In China, animal testing is specifically required by law for the official safety certification of certain imported product categories. We are committed to working with the Chinese authorities to abolish animal testing for cosmetic products. We have been at the forefront of developing non-animal testing methods and actively advocate for the international acceptance of existing alternative techniques.
Beiersdorf has been a leading expert in skin care for more than 130 years. The quality of our products as well as the safety and health of our consumers have always been and will remain our highest priority. “
