Whilst Scent are based in Zeeland, the issues surrounding animal testing are still prevalent.

Before Scent can release a product to the market, it does have to undergo stringent testing. However, does that testing have to be done on animals?


In this Cruelty Free International blog, they commend The Body Shop and Paul Mitchell on supporting their efforts to create the Humane Cosmetics Act in order to put an end to animal testing within three years.

Ethical issues are guaranteed to appear in your exam, you should be prepared to deal with the issue of animal testing and the possibility of some scandal coming to light, which may attract negative publicity for Scent.

Other issues include the accounting treatment of Research and Development expenditure in relation to the new testing required, a transfer pricing system between a test laboratory and different product divisions, or the potential future benefit of joining such a campaign to end animal testing.
