Israel gets a special Pack of Compassion Award, as the New Year brings a new ban in the country on the import, marketing and sale of any toiletries, cosmetics and detergents that were tested on animals.
Bernama.com reports the ban was voted on in 2010 and is now the law of the land.
The article quotes Labour Party member Eitan Cabel as saying, “” the new guidelines are “a true revolution in animal welfare in Israel,” Cabel said. “We’ve come a long way in the last Knesset (parliament) term and this law in the pinnacle of our efforts.” “”
The science is in on these products, in terms of skin or eye irritations, etc. The continued testing and the suffering inflicted on animals is not necessary.
