Symrise appealed ECHA's decision, but the appeal was rejected in August. Now, the company is moving to annul the 2018 ruling.
HSI said ECHA's decision, "sets such a dangerous precedent for cosmetic animal testing that the leading companies and campaigners decided to issue their public, joint opposiiton."
Cosmetics tested on animals have been banned in the EU since 2013. Earlier, the EU banned animal testing for finished products (2004) and ingredients (2009).
