Frequently Asked Questions
- Is there animal testing at ARTDECO?
ARTDECO does not conduct any tests on animals for its cosmetic products nor does it have any animal testing performed on its behalf.
Animal testing for decorative cosmetic products has been prohibited under the German Animal Welfare Act since 1986. Tests on animals for all cosmetic finished products have been banned since 1998.
A corresponding ban has been in place since March 2011 for cosmetic raw materials as well, which ARTDECO expressly welcomes.
Pursuant to this legislation, raw materials developed for use in cosmetics may no longer be tested for compatibility on animals.
Raw materials developed for cosmetics before this time point were not necessarily tested on animals. However, some of them were tested using in-vivo experiments (tests on animals).
In order to conduct all future testing of raw materials exclusively by means of in-vitro tests (test tube experiments), these procedures are being continuously further developed and new methods researched. ARTDECO has no knowledge of the raw materials used in products being tested with in-vivo tests.
In order to minimize incompatibilities, ARTDECO conducts internal application tests or patch tests (epicutaneous tests) used to determine the local compatibility of a product.
ARTDECO is against animal testing.
