At L’Oréal, we care for animal welfare and we do not test on animals. We are for a world without animal testing.

Since 1989, 14 years before the "EU" regulations required us to do so, we have not tested the safety of our products on animals.

Because we care about animal welfare, over 40 years ago, L’Oréal pioneered the development of human reconstructed skin that can be used to evaluate how cosmetic ingredients and products behave on human skin. We currently manufacture different types of reconstructed human skin in our Episkin labs in France, China and Brazil – and we make this technology available to governments, organizations and other companies for testing purposes, so that they don’t have to test on animals.

 

L’Oréal  has been at the forefront of alternative methods for over 30 years.

In addition to our skin models, we have a large number of non-animal predictive assessment tools, such as molecular modelling, expert toxicology systems, imaging techniques and many more. Our scientists continue to pioneer new non-animal methods and technologies, including artificial intelligence, in our labs across the world.

To help increase the acceptance of non-animal methods for safety evaluation. We also work with a range of scientific experts, NGOs and authorities from around the world.

We are for a world without animal testing.
