The Body Shop Seeks Global End To Animal Testing Through UN Petition

Executive Summary

The L'Oreal company and Cruelty Free International are working to drum up 8m signatures on a petition to the UN, with the goal of spurring an international pact banning cosmetic animal testing across UN member states. If a treaty were to emerge, getting the US on board without FDA support – which seems unlikely based on recent remarks from the agency's Linda Katz – could be exceedingly difficult.
