India, first cruelty-free cosmetics zone in South Asia; bans import of animal-tested cosmetics too \m/

ban

A good development. No animals must suffer for such superficial desires of humans.
Government has inserted a new rule 135-B in Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, banning import of products tested on animals.
Earlier, a few months ago, govt. had announced a ban on testing of cosmetics on animals in India. And now with this rule, which will come into effect from November 13, we’ve become the first “cruelty-free” cosmetics zone in South Asia.
Humane Society International had been campaigning a long time for this.
