Modern alternatives to animal testing are increasingly less expensive, faster, and more accurate at predicting human reactions. The use these methods to animal testing has a huge positive impact on animal welfare.
Additionally, the European Union, which accounts for nearly half of the global cosmetics market and worth an estimated 90 billion dollars a year, as of March 2013, prohibits the importation and sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals. Norway, India, Israel have also banned all animal testing for cosmetics.
