[Ed. Note: And take action here - Oppose the Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act]
People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals (PETA)
Please take a moment to let decisionmakers know that no cosmetics product or ingredient justifies inflicting suffering on animals and that America must never allow cruel product tests on animals.
STOP The Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act (SCPCPA), H.R. 1385.
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.

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 this. Americans should have the same level of cutting–edge science used in the EU, Israel, and India to evaluate the safety of our cosmetics products, and we also deserve to have our laws reflect our ethical stance that animals should never be forced to suffer and die in cosmetics tests.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
