Israel Bans Animal-Tested Products
Israel now officially bans the import, marketing and sale of any cosmetics, toiletries or detergents whose manufacturing process involves animal testing. The Knesset originally passed the law in 2010. The new regulations take effect on January 1, 2013.

MK Cabel, who promoted the legislation, said that the law represents "A true revolution in animal welfare in Israel. We've come a long way in the last Knesset term and this law is the pinnacle of our efforts". 

The new law was enacted as an addition to a law enacted in 2007, which banned animal testing in the Israeli Cosmetics Industry altogether.
