Companies like NUENCE that are on PETA's List of Cruelty Free Companies are committed to going beyond regulatory requirements and supporting PETA in its work to end animal abuse.

With over 6.5 million members, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is the world's largest animal rights organization. Since 1980, PETA has campaigned against the cruelty and exploitation of animals, persuading organizations and legislators to end the many forms of animal abuse still practiced today, including animal testing for cosmetics.

Its "Beauty Without Bunnies" certification is a trusted criterion to help consumers shop responsibly. The NUENCE team is proud to announce its collaboration with PETA and the achievement of its certification, attesting that its products are Vegan and cruelty free.

In Europe, testing cosmetic products on animals has been prohibited by law since 2004, and testing cosmetic ingredients since 2013. The marketing of cosmetics tested on animals has been banned since 2013, even if the tests were carried out outside Europe.

Despite this long-standing ban (which is now under threat), there are loopholes in the regulations that authorize or require animal testing, such as tests for worker safety or REACH regulations. What's more, the EU allows cosmetics tested on animals in China to be sold in the EU, which PETA's program does not.
