“One of the important aspects of the new regulation is to ban animal testing of cosmetics and provide the foreign and national companies with a possibility to use latest technological developments, particularly, the alternative ways of the testing of cosmetic products,” the message said.

The regulation of the cosmetic products is elaborated on the basis of the EU norms. The Healthcare Ministry plans to provide the transit period for the implementation of new demands for testing of the cosmetic products to allow the Ukrainian business to develop without obstacles and keep fair competition at the market.
