Animals in the U.S. continue to suffer and die in experiments to test cosmetics like lipstick, deodorant, and shampoo. The Humane Cosmetics Act (S. 2886 and H.R. 5141) 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 more relevant to humans making them more reliable predictors of safety than archaic animal tests.
Help end cosmetics testing on animals in the U.S. -- just like in nearly 40 countries where this outdated practice has been phased out, including Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, India and every country in the European Union.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Senators and Representative and urge support for the Humane Cosmetics Act. Look up your Senator's and Representative’s phone numbers. You can say, "I'm a constituent, and I urge you to support the Humane Cosmetics Act (S. 2886 and H.R. 5141), if you haven't already done so. This bill would prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S."
