• Does China conduct animal-testing on imported cosmetic products?

China stands out as an exception to the trend of banning animal-testing. The Chinese government requires that all imported products are animal-tested without seeking the approval of the brands. Only cosmetic products manufactured and packaged in China are exempt from this requirement. As a result, as a result of the laws in China, companies exporting to China are subject to this requirement without their knowledge even if their products are not animal-tested.

Flormar is an international brand, and as such, distributes some of its products in China together with a business partner. Regardless of the brand, China may decide entirely unilaterally to test cosmetic products before allowing their distribution across the country. In such a case, China is a unilateral decision maker. Flormar ceaselessly continues its contacts at the highest levels on the matter in China in an effort to convince them the alternative methods are used today and they are reliable.

• Why does Flormar not simply stop selling its products in China?

Operating in 110 countries of the world, Flormar is against animal-testing of its products. Flormar clearly communicates to all its stakeholders across its ecosystem that animal testing is not permissible.

Flormar ceaselessly continues its contacts at the highest levels on the matter in China in an effort to convince them that the alternative methods are used today and they are reliable. At the moment, we still continue our optimistic stance regarding the prospect of China’s adoption of methods other than animaltesting.

We welcome the progress China has made in this field, and as a brand, we also do our part and continue our negotiations. For instance, in 2014, China abandoned its requirement for the animal-testing of several “regular cosmetic products” including makeup, skin, hair and nail care products as well as fragrances manufactured in China. We expect that the same exemption will soon be applicable to products not produced in China as well.
