Just in time for World Animal Day on 4 October, Lakmé – ranked the number one make-up brand in the country – is joining PETA US’ Global Beauty Without Bunnies programme, which certifies cosmetics, personal care, and household goods companies and brands that don’t test on animals. Lakmé, which is owned by Hindustan Unilever, will now feature the program’s PETA-approved bunny logo on its packaging.

“Not testing any of our products on animals is critical to our values at Lakmé and is in line with Unilever’s Positive Beauty vision,” says Sumati Matti, head of innovations, Lakmé. “PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies program is recognized worldwide for its high-quality standards and rigor, and we are proud to be a brand that is officially PETA-approved. With Lakmé’s range of high-performance and world-class cosmetics, skin-care products, and beauty salons, women can own their look while knowing that the beauty and safety from our products are from scientific alternatives to animal testing.”

Lakmé – spared ugly test on animal for beauty products

“Thanks to Lakmé’s compassion and conscientiousness, animals will be spared ugly tests for beauty products,” says PETA India science policy advisor, Dr Ankita Pandey. “PETA India is delighted that Lakmé and other kind companies on the Global Beauty Without Bunnies list empower consumers to shop according to their values.”

PETA India – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on” – notes that more than 5,400 companies around the world have banned all animal tests in favor of effective, modern, non-animal methods, thereby sparing animals painful and deadly tests in which substances are applied to their eyes and shaved skin, sprayed in their faces, or forced down their throats. Because of the vast physiological differences between humans and the other animals used in these tests, the results are often misleading.

In India, following efforts by PETA India, testing cosmetics or their ingredients on animals was banned in 2014, as was the importation of animal-tested cosmetics. In 2020, the government released the Cosmetics Rules 2020, which include provisions to strengthen the ban on the importation of animal-tested cosmetics. Nevertheless, to ensure they are not supporting animal testing, PETA India advises consumers to purchase only from companies listed as not testing on animals by PETA US’ Global Beauty Without Bunnies programme.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
