PETA Grant Enables Scientists to Guide Chinese Officials in Non-Animal Test Use
Va. -- Chinese
officials are in the final stages of approving the use of the country's very
first non-animal test method for cosmetics ingredients, thanks to guidance from
scientists funded by PETA. The 3T3 Neutral Red Uptake Phototoxicity Assay,
which tests chemicals for their potential toxicity when they come into contact
with sunlight and is already in widespread use
in the U.S. and the E.U., is scheduled to be accepted in China by late summer.
Until now, China has required cosmetics companies to test ingredients and
products only on animals.
awarded a grant to scientists at the Institute for In
(IIVS) late last year after learning that China was requiring cosmetics
companies Avon, Estée Lauder, and Mary Kay—which had been on PETA's list of
companies that don't test cosmetics on animals for decades—to
pay for tests on animals in order to market their products in China. Scientists
from IIVS traveled to China several times to offer their expertise and
delighted that this grant has helped jump-start the acceptance of non-animal
tests in China and grateful to Chinese officials for being so open to these
discussions," says PETA Vice
President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "We
congratulate them for acting swiftly to implement the first of several
available non-animal tests."
