Support legislation to 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 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Help end cosmetics testing on animals in the U.S. -- just like in nearly 40 countries where this outdated practice has been phased out, including Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, India and every country in the European Union.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 two U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative and urge support for the Humane Cosmetics Act. Look up your legislators's phone numbers. You can say, "I'm a constituent, and I urge you to cosponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act, if you haven't already done so. This bill would prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to automatically send a follow-up message. We encourage you to add your own thoughts or comments in the editable portion so your legislators know how important this issue is to you.

Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act. This legislation would prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S.

There are thousands of existing ingredients with a history of safe use, which allow more than 1,000 North American companies to create innovative products without the need for animal testing. For new ingredients, advanced non-animal methods are often cheaper, faster, and more reliable predictors of human safety than outdated animal tests.

Passage of the Humane Cosmetics Act would align U.S. law with more than 30 countries that have already banned cosmetic animal testing and the sale of products tested elsewhere. U.S. companies that sell their products in those countries (a market that covers more than 1.8 billion people) are already complying with those bans.
