Animals in the U.S. continue to suffer and die in experiments to test cosmetics like lipstick, deodorant and shampoo. The Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2790), sponsored by U.S. Reps. Martha McSally (R-AZ), Don Beyer (D-VA), Ed Royce (R-CA), Tony Cárdenas (D-CA), Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) and Paul D. Tonko (D-NY), 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 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Help end testing cosmetics on animals in the U.S. -- just like in more than 30 countries where this outdated practice has been phased out, including Norway, Switzerland, Israel, India and every country in the European Union.

TAKE ACTION
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative and urge support for the Humane Cosmetics Act. Look up your legislator's phone number. You can say, "I'm a constituent, and I urge you to cosponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 2790, 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 representative knows how important this issue is to you.

Rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, and rats are regularly being blinded, poisoned, and killed to test lipstick, mascara, cologne, and other cosmetic products. Beauty should not come at such a cruel price.

There is absolutely no reason why animals in the U.S. must continue to needlessly suffer and die in experiments to test cosmetics.

Sign today and urge your U.S. Representative to support for the Humane Cosmetics Act to prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured or sold in the U.S.
