  • Pupa has always been committed to complying with present and future choices of the legislator. Therefore, our finished products are not tested on animals, as prescribed by cosmetic regulations since 2004. We therefore voluntarily commit to follow the guidelines of the European community which recommend, for ethical reasons, to consequentially carry out in vitro tests and in vivo tests on human volunteers, under dermatologic control. The in vitro test as a matter of fact can predict possible irritative damage, so that each human volunteer can then safely undergo the in vivo testing. As far as the ingredients are concerned, we need to make a distinction: those that have been used for decades to prepare cosmetics, come along with a toxicological file that includes data relevant to animal experimentation carried out in the past, while for raw materials of new generation, from 2009 on, it is mandatory to substitute animal experimentation with alternative, scientifically verified methods. Furthermore, from 2009 to 2013, it will also progressively become illegal to sell cosmetics containing ingredients that were tested on animals in countries outside the EU. In conclusion, notwithstanding the important steps forward that have been made in these last years, the exclusive use of alternative testing methods needs further commitment and development of scientific knowledge in order to guarantee all aspects of product and ingredient safety for customer protection, which remains the main priority. Pupa and Pupa products have always been compliant with present and future choices of the legislator.

    My question is: does this say that they are cruelty free? Because I’m not sure.
