Concea forbids animal testing

Atualizado: 1 de out. de 2023

Concea forbids animal testing. The law was published in the Official Diary of The Union.


In March, the Brazilian Gonernment has recently implemented a measure, decided by the Concelho Nacional de Controlo de Experimentação Animal - Concea, that prevents the use of animals in research testing which evaluates the effectiveness of quality control of cosmetics, hygiene products and perfumes.

The law was approved in December, however, the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Luciana Santos, only signed the project in May.

This measure applies to products composed by ingredients whose security was scientifically proven and aims to “respond to society’s demand, which no longer admits these sort of practices”, highlights Kátia de Angelis, Concea’s coordinator.

In situations where the formula is brand new and does not possess a security certification, the companies will have over forty alternative techniques to choose from approved by Concea, that replace or reduce the usage of animals.

Thus, Brazilian companies are obliged to find alternative methods to animal experimentation, as well as two years to change the company’s policies that concern this matter.

Brazil is now part of the list of countries, in which Portugal is also integrated, where the usage of animals when it comes to product development is prohibited.
