Hope that those non-cruelty-free companies don't rush their products to other countries where the movement of cruelty-free has not taken flight.

It's a great start-but they will still be selling stock that has been tested on the animals,it will be a long time before the animal free products come into the shops-and should be stamped as such,and those firms that went along with testing on animals in -China -for greed and profit will be -remembered -I hope for their treachery to the animals.

Even though it's was already tested? Will be interesting when they find new stuff to use, or should we buy stock in Castile Soap manufacturers?

Yeah, EU! Unfortunately many cosmetics companies are moving into China where it is required. And when can we get America to end ALL animal testing?!
