This provides a baseline for how chemicals and cosmetics will react with human tissues, which in fact could be a significant upgrade from animal testing. Additional alternatives dive deeper into technology as a possible answer to animal testing. In silico models (advanced computer modelling technique), and In-vitro models (sophisticated test using human cells and tissues) are two methods that could provide a greater in-depth look at cosmetic testing without the use of animals, but this new form of testing lacks the 3-D component that skin has, and needs further research of the
