I think this is *amazing*. One thing I'm curious about, though, is that some other countries/regions mandate animal testing (for some stupid reason). I know China is one of them, though they have been looking at changing this.

I remember a few years ago some companies that were previously free of animal testing (Urban Decay, MAC Cosmetics, etc.) had to change their policy because they started selling in China. It seems like some companies are now going to have to choose where they'll sell since they won't be able to meet the EU requirements and the China requirements at the same time.

Either way, super exciting news!

ETA: I just looked at LeapingBunny and they said, "It is unlikely that the EU will force international brands to pull out of markets with animal testing requirements. Therefore, although it may appear to be inconsistent with the ban, companies may still be testing on animals to fulfill regulatory requirements in other countries." Sort of a bummer.
