How many of your daily use products were tested on live animals?
For more than a quarter of a century, IVRO's mission has been to reduce the number of animals used in laboratory testing via replacement in vitro (Latin: 'in glass') test technologies. Our plant based predictive core test technology has recently been reviewed and adopted at the highest scientific OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) regulatory level. Ocular Irritection® Test Guideline (OECD TG496) is now accepted in 37 countries, including the U.S., where in recent years legal protection has become necessary for in vitro tests to replace live animals.
IVRO CEO and Chairman, W. Richard Ulmer, observed, "We believe our InVitro International 3rd quarter numbers indicate a rebound from Covid-‘19/'20 global business damage, and thus allow us to resume IVRO's ‘Make NON-Animal Testing Famous' program in full force. Global society attitudes toward hundreds of thousands of unnecessary animal tests seem to be ripe for change as citizens and testing laboratories realize alternative/replacement tests such as Ocular Irritection® and Corrositex® have been adopted by the highest Regulatory Agencies in the world & now provide valid results with legal assurances."
IVRO President, Atul Jhalani, added, '2021 has been an exciting year for non-animal testing globally. In June, 2021, Maine became the sixth U.S. state to ban the sales of new cosmetic products tested on animals. It now joins Hawaii, California, Illinois, Nevada and Virginia in implementing such a ban; with impending legislation in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island and Oregon. Is a U.S. wide ban in our near future? China is the second largest cosmetics market in the world and its long standing requirement for 'animal testing' of cosmetic products has been a major hurdle for non-animal testing globally. In 2021, China provided a pathway for companies to import as well as to sell non animal tested cosmetics. This global legal momentum and changing consumer attitudes bodes well for our future.'
