This is huge. Huge.

The European Union announced last week that they are still on track for a total ban on all personal care products tested on animals. It is something that has been in the works for awhile and the target date is 2013.

The article goes on to explain that cosmetic companies have pleaded for an extension as alternatives to animal testing can be found.

Oh please. This ban is not new news.

Regardless, this is a game changer for the industry. And what companies still test on animals you may be wondering? Prepare yourself.
