"It is dreadful to derive beauty from animal suffering. Animal tests should only take place as an absolute necessity, and that is not happening in the case of cosmetics. This is why a ban on both sales and testing should be introduced. The sooner the better. It is unfortunate that compromises are required in this respect. Labelling on all products tested on animals must now become compulsory with immediate effect. It is of major importance for industry, science and the government to invest more in alternative methods, as far too little use is still being made of current knowledge due to this approach. The validation procedures must be accelerated. Forty thousand animals annually are forty thousand animals too many. The replacement, reduction and refinement of animal tests are a question of civilisation. Animals are far too beautiful to be treated so dreadfully."@en1
