PETA Grant to Help End Animal Testing in China

PETA Grant Helps Provide Alternative to Animal Testing

Animal testing is on the ugly side of the beauty industry, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is helping to make sure animal-free tests are being used on an international scale. PETA granted $33,000 to the Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), which is funding training for scientists in China, who are learning how to use an in vitro alternative to testing cosmetics on live rabbits.

Under Chinese law, cosmetic companies are required to test on animals. But this grant, the second given to IIVS, enables scientists at the Beijing Technical and Business University, China's largest university cosmetics science program, to be instructed in nonanimal testing methods. The Chinese government is set to approve its first in vitro test, which would affect animal testing throughout the country, and ultimately on a global scale. To find out if your favorite products are animal friendly, head on over to leapingbunny.org.
