I am a scientist working to end animal tests for cosmetics. AMA
This issue came up earlier this week as the EU finally banned animal tests for cosmetics on Monday:
I have a PhD in animal welfare and have worked for over 7 years promoting non-animal tests to the science industry. I have submitted consultation responses to EU Scientific Committees on non-animal alternatives for cosmetics testing. I work at www.CrueltyFreeInternational.org.
I’m here from 4pm ET / 8pm GMT for an hour to answer questions you have on animal tests for cosmetics and the EU ban. AMA!
