Now the company is working with its suppliers to make sure that no ingredients are tested on animals.

“Avon will focus on working with suppliers on their animal testing policies for ingredients used in Avon’s products. Meanwhile Avon will continue to work with its partners to push for regulatory change and greater acceptance of alternatives to animal testing,” the company said.

We have been delighted to work with the company throughout this process and have appreciated its thoughtful approach to ensuring that any of its products sold in China will never be tested on animals. We look forward to continuing this work.
