You can become a more compassionate consumer by making sure your cosmetics and personal care, household and pet care products aren't tested on animals. It's easier than you think.
Support the Humane Cosmetics Act
The Humane Cosmetics Act would end cosmetics testing on animals in the U.S. by prohibiting the use of animals to test cosmetics and banning the import of animal-tested cosmetics.
Urge your representatives to support the Humane Cosmetics Act.
Find certified cruelty-free products
Follow the Leaping Bunny
Want to know which products aren’t tested on animals? Start with the Leaping Bunny guide, a list of cruelty-free brands compiled by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). As a founding member organization of CCIC, the HSUS encourages shoppers to purchase from the cosmetic, personal care, household and pet care companies listed in the guide, since they have met a rigorous, internationally recognized cruelty-free standard.
Look for the Leaping Bunny logo
Some CCIC-certified companies make animal friendly shopping easier by displaying the Leaping Bunny logo on their products.

Ask companies if they test on animals
If a brand you're considering isn't on the Leaping Bunny list, contact the company and ask if its products or ingredients are tested on animals at any stage in the manufacturing process. Also ask if the company sells its products in China, which requires animal testing of cosmetics. You can get in touch with companies using the toll-free number on their packages or via their website.
