Wayne's Blog: New EPA-L’Oréal Partnership Could Help End Animal Testing for Cosmetics
Subjecting animals to painful tests for tubes of lipstick or mascara cannot be justified, ethically or scientifically. But thousands of cosmetics lining the shelves in U.S. stores contain substances tested on rabbits, mice, and other animals.
An important new research collaboration could finally bring the U.S. one step closer to eliminating these tests altogether. At a joint press conference today, supported by The HSUS and our affiliates Humane Society International and the Humane Society Legislative Fund, the Environmental Protection Agency and The L’Oréal Group announced a plan to work together to evaluate non-animal methods to test substances used in cosmetics.
