A team of researchers at University of Coimbra have been working on a test to reduce the need for animals in cosmetic tests.

The test, called Sensitiser Predictor, could abolish the use of animals in product testing of the cosmetics industry.

Dr. John Pippin, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, says, “It’s especially inhumane and especially indefensible [to use live animals] when there are alternatives in hand which not only would spare the animals the trauma of going through this but also would provide a better educational experience.”

Thank the researchers University of Coimbra Center for developing a test that would end cosmetic testing that causes animal suffering in laboratories.
