Goal: 25,000 Progress: 15,621
Sponsored by: Humane Society of the United States

Animals in the U.S. continue to suffer and die in experiments to test cosmetics like lipstick, deodorant and shampoo. The Humane Cosmetics Act, sponsored by U.S. Reps. Martha McSally (R-AZ), Don Beyer (D-VA), Ed Royce (R-CA) and Tony Cárdenas (D-CA), will end to 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 and safe cosmetics can be made using thousands of existing ingredients, and several non-animal safety tests are already available for new ingredients. These non-animal alternatives are often cheaper, faster and more relevant to humans, and therefore more reliable predictors of safety.

Help end testing cosmetics on animals in the U.S. — just like in more than 30 countries where this outdated practice has been phased out, including Norway, Switzerland, Israel, India and every country in the European Union.

Urge your U.S. Representative to support the Humane Cosmetics Act!

Dear Representative,

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act, sponsored by Representatives Martha McSally (R-AZ), Don Beyer (D-VA), Ed Royce (R-CA) and Tony Cárdenas (D-CA). 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 600 North American companies to create innovative products without the need for new animal testing. For new ingredients, non-animal safety tests are often cheaper, faster and more relevant to humans, and therefore more reliable predictors of safety.

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. Countries whose populations total more than 1.8 billion people ban animal testing, and U.S. companies that sell in those countries are expected to comply with those bans.

Sep 14, 2017 (Name not displayed) If a product isn't natural or safe enough to apply to humans (based on our ALREADY vast knowledge of chemicals and other ingredients), then don't use new chemicals. Stop the unethical pain, captivity, and testing on all animals.
