|Follow j. on||and|
A law to ban the import or sale of animal-tested products went into effect in Israel on Jan. 1.
The law bans the import, marketing and sale of cosmetics, toiletries or detergents that were tested on animals during the manufacturing process.
The law follows guidelines set by the European Union in 2004, and makes exceptions for items that are considered medicinal products.
Also on Jan. 1, a law that bans the use of underweight models in advertising went into effect in Israel. The law also requires that any ad digitally altered to make a model look thinner must say so in the advertisement. — jta
