The author reflects on the issues associated to the seventh amendment of the European Union (EU) Cosmetics Directive in 2003 which bans the testing and marketing of finished cosmetic products. She examines how the bans have affected the manufacturers and importers of cosmetic products sold in the EU due to the lack of legal clarity toward the interpretation of the provision. The author points out that the EU Commission's lack of recognition of alternative protocols have worsen the issue.
