L’Oréal is committed for a Beauty with no animal testing 

We believe that scientific and regulatory advancement of non-animal methods is only possible through multidisciplinary cooperation. 

Our engagements focus on scientific development to develop new non-animal methods, international collaboration, and educational programs to further encourage their acceptance by authorities. 

That is why we actively participate to scientific congresses to share our knowledge and expertise with the scientific community to widespread the use of non-animal methods to all stakeholders. We offer trainings through these occasions. 

This week (Aug 27-31 Canada),the L’Oréal and Episkin R&I teams attended the 12th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences: to showcase our commitments in sharing science of non-animal testing methods. 

They presented their latest advances on the development of non-animal testing methods, through 15 posters, 3 symposiums talk, 1 plenary talk and 1 workshop. 

What is the World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences also called ‘WC’?
