Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any way.

Act Now to Stop Cruel Cosmetics Tests on Animals in the U.S.

In 2013, we celebrated a historic milestone in the fight to end animal testing when the final provisions of the European Union's marketing ban on cosmetics tested on animals went into effect. We cheered as Israel enacted a similar ban and were thrilled when PETA India's work to persuade India to end tests on animals for cosmetics was successful.

But as we've celebrated this wonderful international progress in the fight to eliminate cruel product tests on animals, we've also been keeping a watchful eye on proposed changes to cosmetics regulations in the U.S. Instead of keeping pace with the international community, the U.S. is at risk of backsliding into requiring archaic product testing methods in which animals are poisoned and killed for cosmetics. Although the U.S. does not require tests on animals for cosmetics, some environmental and industry groups and decisionmakers in the U.S. have been working to change that by pushing for regulations that would result in an increase in cruel tests on animals.

We need your help to urge the cosmetics industry, federal regulators, and Congress to put a stop to these tests. Americans should have the same level of cutting-edge science used in the EU, India, and Israel to evaluate the safety of our cosmetics products, and we also deserve to have laws that reflect our ethical stance that animals should never be forced to suffer and die in cosmetics tests.

**UPDATE: Please also urge your congressional representatives to support the recently introduced Humane Cosmetics Act, which would ban tests on animals for cosmetics and phase out the sales of animal-tested products in the U.S.! For more information, please visit our blog.

Please take a moment to let decisionmakers know that no cosmetics product or ingredient is worth inflicting suffering on animals and that America must never allow cruel product tests on animals.
