New Bill Aims to End Animal Testing for Cosmetics in the US

The Humane Cosmetics Act

I have some very exciting and promising news for animals and compassionate beauty junkies!

This week, Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) introduced a federal bill called The Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 4148) which aims to end cosmetics animal testing in the U.S..

If passed, The Humane Cosmetics Act would end the use of inhumane animal testing methods in favor of cost effective testing alternatives and phase out the sale of cosmetics tested on animals in foreign countries. It would also ensure that only safe products, tested with cutting edge technology, enter the American market.

Moran says “This legislation would encourage the use of testing alternatives that are more effective and cheaper to conduct, helping the American cosmetic industry remain the dominant, and humane, leader in the global cosmetics market.”

Help show you support for this proposed legislation by calling your U.S. representative and following up with a personalized form letter which can be found on The Humane Society of the United States’ (HSUS) website.

    Wasn’t there a bill proposed that would make animal testing on cosmetics required? What happened to that? I hope it was killed.
