Tell your legislator: End cosmetics testing on animals
Animals in the U.S. continue to suffer and die in experiments to test cosmetics like lipstick, deodorant, and shampoo. The Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 5399, will end this unnecessary cruelty by prohibiting animal testing for all cosmetic products manufactured or sold in the U.S.
Alternatives to animal testing already exist: Humane, safe cosmetics can be created using thousands of existing ingredients, and several non-animal methods are already available to test new ingredients. These advanced scientific technologies are often cheaper, faster and better at mimicking human responses, making them more reliable than archaic animal tests when it comes to predicting a product or ingredient’s safety.
Help end cosmetics testing on animals in the U.S. -- just like in the 44 other countries where this outdated practice has been prohibited, including Canada, Mexico, India, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, and every country in the European Union.
Please contact your legislators and urge them to support the Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 5399, legislation that would prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S. Look up your legislator's phone numbers.
