Animal testing

Nature's does not conduct animal testing

Nature’s intends to promote the knowledge and clarity of the information with regard to animal testing. The total ban on testing and marketing cosmetic ingredients and products tested on animals came into force all over the European Union on 11 March 2013 with the new cosmetic regulations No. 1223/2009. After a long process of gradual bans that lasted almost 20 years, the official NO to all tests on animals in the cosmetic sector finally came into being. To guarantee quality, effectiveness and product safety for customers, Nature’s uses methods other than tests on animals, carrying out in vitro or dermatological tests in co-operation with the best Italian universities and since 2012 has been supporting FRAME – Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (www.frame.org.uk). FRAME is an independent research charity dedicated to developing, validating, and promoting non-animal methods that will end the use of laboratory animals. FRAME’s vision is a world where no animal suffers for science.
