Mavala animal testing statement

“No, animal testing is forbidden in Europe on cosmetic products! MAVALA Laboratories are based in Switzerland, but strictly follow European Cosmetic Regulation, forbidding since 2004 to conduct experiments on animals, and since 2009 (or 2013 for the latest tests) to commercialize finished products containing ingredients tested on animals. The mention “not tested on animals” does not appear on our products, as it is a legal obligation.” – the quote is taken from the official website.
