Taiwan Bans Cosmetics Testing

Last week, Taiwan announced that they would be banning cosmetics testing on animals for both ingredients and finished products. The bill goes into effect in 2019 after a 3 year transitional period. It is the first country in SE Asia to propose a ban against animal testing.

Open Letter to Trendmood – External Link

An interesting read. I myself was a follower of Trendmood until I read this. I had no idea that they were breaking contract (their own or others) by posting sneak peeks to early. I don’t know how she’s not in any legal trouble. I also learned that she has been taking others’ photos and not only providing no credit, but blocking people who did ask for credit to be given to them. That is a HUGE no-no for me and should be for others as well, it’s a blatant copyright violation.
