Statistics of the Use of the Animals
The vast majority of animals are used in basic biological research. The next highest number of animals is in research and development of products and devices for human medicine and dentistry and for veterinary medicine. 
In Finland, approximately 1% of the animals were used in toxicological and other safety evaluations (including safety evaluation of products and devices for human medicine and dentistry and for veterinary medicine).
Since 1985, animals have not been used in testing the safety of cosmetics in Finland. The cosmetic industry has used and uses raw materials, whose safety has been studied previously in another context.
