Animal testing for cosmetics to restart in U.K.

Animal testing in the UK will happen for the first time in 25 years. Judges at a court in London followed European laws on animal testing. They said scientists can test chemicals on animals. Some chemicals are already used in sunscreen, foundation and skincare products.

Cosmetics companies in the UK are unhappy. A group of 80 brands said testing was shocking. The Body Shop said re-starting animal testing would hurt millions of campaigners who love animals. A scientist at a big cosmetics company said we could use technology instead of using animals.
