On June 28, 2013, India’s Bureau of Indian Standards approved the removal of any mention of animal tests from its cosmetics standard. Its approval also requires mandatory non-animal tests. This means that pending testing or approval of a cosmetic, the manufacturer must go to India’s Central Drug Standards Control Organisation for approval. Only after approval is given, meaning that the Bureau of Indian Standards’ non-animal standards are met, is the company allowed to proceed with testing.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
