Amongst many topics, animal testing for fast moving consumer goods continues to be a highly discussed and contested issue. With growing consensus for a worldwide ban on animal testing in cosmetics and a move towards the use of alternative testing methods across a wide range of product classes.
As such Reckitt has conducted a strategic review of Reckitt’s global policy position, governance, and methodology with regards to this topic and has updated our policy.
This new policy together with a brochure with additional information, provides an update of Reckitt’s global position and background of how we are supporting alternative testing methods to safeguard human and environmental safety. It outlines Reckitt’s support of a worldwide ban on cosmetic product testing. It also provides a clear update on programmes where Reckitt collaborates and drives the science and advocacy regarding alternatives to animal testing.
