Turkey ends animal testing for cosmetics

Turkey has joined the ranks of the European Union, Isreal, Norway and India by introducing a ban on the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals, according to The Daily Sabah.

The country’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Administration has added an additional article to its new regulation regarding the cosmetics industry banning animal testing for cosmetic products.

The regulation will also require manufacturers to tag their products with Turkey-specific labels detailing the ingredients contained within any product sold in the country. The Turkish tags will be required on all products, regardless of whether the original packaging lists the ingredients in accordance with the regulation.
