The Korea National Assembly has passed a Bill banning animal testing of cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients on animals by 2018.
Not much additional information, such as details or loopholes is available right now.
As we know, companies can still sell in the UK if they test in China, and that is a big loophole. It remains to be seen if there are bigger loopholes in the South Korean ban.
This will not effect my buying personally, as the brands I can't buy now are brands that sell in China now, and will still sell in =China in 2018, but it's a great step forward formally.
A step that puts the US not just behind EU, but also behind South Korea. In more than just figure skating!
