Humane Cosmetics Act

Testing cosmetics on animals is outdated, unreliable, and completely unnecessary thanks to newer technologies that allow proper testing of products without harming any living beings.  Over 30 countries have phased out animal testing, including the entire EU.  Unfortunately, animal testing, and buying products that have been testing on animals, is still a very legal and widely used practice in the United States.

Luckily, legislation has been introduced to phase out cosmetics animal testing in the US.  The Humane Cosmetics Act legislation, introduced with bipartisan support by Reps. Martha McSally, R-Ariz.; Don Beyer, D-Va.; Ed Royce, R-Calif.; Tony Cárdenas, D-Calif.; Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J.; and Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., would prohibit the use of animals to test cosmetic products and ingredients. It also phases out the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals in other countries.

Please join me in urging support for the Humane Cosmetics Act by contacting your US Representative (phone numbers here) and signing this petition.  Thank you!
