Zijn de Avène producten dierproefvrij?

No Animal Testing Avène  | Avène Dierproefvrij

De fabrikant van Avène is Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique. Zij testen geen producten en ingrediënten op dieren en ontwikkelen al meer dan 20 jaar alternatieve methoden voor diermodellen.
Het beoordelen van de producten gebeurt eerst in vitro op gereconstrueerde huid in het celkweeklaboratorium in het innovatiecentrum in Toulouse (Fr.) en ná die testen volgen in vivo testen op een grote groep vrijwilligers, uiteraard onder strikt dermatologisch toezicht.

Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics Development Charter

Pierre Fabre statement
Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique (of which Eau Thermale Avène is a part) does not test any of its products nor any of its ingredients on animals. For more than 20 years Pierre Fabre has been developing alternative methods to the animal testing model, evaluating the safety of its dermo-cosmetic care products because that is essential for the Pierre Fabre Group.


What Pierre Fabre does:
- Substitution tests on artificially reconstructed skin in our cell culture laboratory located in our Toulouse-Oncolpole innovation centre.
- Systematic use of alternative methods available on the toxicological studies market, in particular molecular modeling, expert systems in toxicology or imaging techniques.
- Financial participation in European and French research programs on the development of alternative methods to animal experimentation.

Additionally, for several years cosmetic companies - with the support of the EU - have been mobilising so that the ban on animal testing is generalised throughout the world. Pierre Fabre has contributed to the actions carried out by Cosmetics Europe (an association that brings together the main global cosmetic companies). Cosmetics Europe is continuing action with the European authorities to extend the ban on animal testing worldwide.
