News Alert: Bill Introduced to Ban Animal Testing in the US!

USA animal testing bill

Today is a truly historic day for animals in the US!

U.S. Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) has introduced a bill to ban animal testing for cosmetics in the United States!

The Humane Cosmetics Act would ban animal testing for cosmetics after a 1 year phase in and follow with a 3 year phase in for a ban on the sale of any animal tested cosmetics.

The Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 4148, would:

  • Make it unlawful for anyone to conduct or commission cosmetic animal testing in the U.S.
  • Prohibit selling, offering for sale or transporting any cosmetics in interstate commerce if the final product or any component was developed or manufactured using animal testing.

This bill is endorsed by The Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Legislative Fund and Humane Society International, along with members and stakeholders of the personal care products industry, including LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Jack Black, Biao skincare and Aubrey Organics.

The bill is also endorsed by Cruelty Free International.

So please take action for animals:

1. Send a letter to your representative asking them to co-sponsor the bill via the Humane Society of the United States

2. Sign the Cruelty Free International petition calling on the House of Representatives to support the Humane Cosmetics Act
