humane cosmetics act

As of this moment, the Humane Cosmetics Act (HCA) awaits reintroduction in the 115th Congressional session. This is where YOU come in! We need your voice to help push this key piece of legislation forward. The HCA is critical -- it will end the use of animals in cosmetics testing in the U.S.(and the sale of them too!)

Although the HCA was considered during the last two Congressional sessions with bi-partisan support led by Congresswoman Martha McSally, it languished in committee during both sessions.

The HCA provides the perfect opportunity for the U.S. to catch up with the E.U. and numerous countries which are already using modern, non-animal alternatives to test cosmetics.

Sign an online petition that will be sent to your Congressional Representatives.

And/Or better yet, make direct contact:

Find and contact your U.S. Senators

Support the Reintroduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

I strongly believe using innocent animals in cosmetics testing is unacceptable. It inhumanely harms and kills millions of rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, dogs, and other animals, and it is not predictive of an accurate human response.

I am urging you to support reintroduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act by contacting Congresswoman Martha McSally and joining her as a co-sponsor to this important piece of legislation.

Polls indicate the American public overwhelmingly supports alternatives to cosmetics testing on animals, and the majority believe testing cosmetics on animals is unethical.

The Humane Cosmetics Act provides you with an opportunity to align the U.S. with the entire E.U. along with numerous countries around the world, which have already ended this inhumane, unnecessary, and unscientific practice.

The Humane Cosmetics Act means a kinder world for animals and a safer world for Americans. The changes we are seeing worldwide will provide incentives for researchers and companies to accelerate the development of new testing methods, creating a momentum that will spill over into biomedical research as well.

Thank you for your careful consideration.
