Animals are still suffering and dying to test shampoo, mascara and other cosmetic products. Terrified rabbits, rats, guinea pigs and mice have substances forced down their throats, dripped into their eyes or smeared onto their skin before they are killed.
Thousands of cosmetics companies are creating cruelty-free products, making it easy to find high-quality hair products, lotions, makeup, deodorants, perfumes and other personal care products that aren’t tested on animals.
Testing cosmetics on animals is both cruel and unnecessary because companies can already create innovative products using thousands of ingredients that have a history of safe use and do not require any additional testing. Plus, modern testing methods (such as human cell-based tests and sophisticated computer models) have replaced outdated animal tests with new non-animal methods that are often faster, less expensive and more reliable.
Suffer and die worldwide every year in cosmetics tests.
Have endorsed the Humane Cosmetics Act, a bill that would end unnecessary cosmetics animal testing in the United States.
Have full or partial bans on cosmetics animal testing, including all European Union countries, Australia, India, Israel, New Zealand, Norway and South Korea.
Please contact your legislators and urge them to support the reintroduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act to prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S.
