The Future of Cosmetics in China: Why Animal Testing Will End Sooner Than People Think

It is expected that China will change its animal testing requirements for imported cosmetics in the short term (maybe we will even see a change in upcoming technical standards and positive inventory system - IECIC) . China might utilise a system whereby high risk products/ingredients will still require animal testing data and lower risk products will either be exempt from testing requirements or eligible to generate safety data (toxicological etc.) through the use of alternative models or computer based quantitative risk assessment.
