Beauty through Animal Testing = Ugly

Despite what some people still try to make you believe it is completely unnecessary to test cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, etc. on animals prior to putting them on the market for humans. Many countries world wide have proven this and many are moving away from animal testing.

“Election season is a perfect time to communicate with your legislators about the issues that matter to you—like animal testing! The Humane Cosmetics Act would ban the use of animals in testing cosmetics and their ingredients, as well as the sale of these products. Consumers in the U.S. have long been using their purchasing power to support cruelty-free products, and industry support for humane cosmetics has also been growing. Additionally, effective alternatives to animal testing exist and are widely accepted.

Now it’s time for Congress to do the right thing by passing the Humane Cosmetics Act!

There is no U.S. law requiring companies to test their cosmetics and ingredients on animals. However, internationally, there are laws that ban this practice. The European Union enacted a ban on animal tested cosmetics in 2004, and Israel and India passed similar laws in 2007 and 2013 respectively. The U.S. should also enact a ban on animal tested cosmetics.”
