The Humane Cosmetics Act Now Has Support from 138 Cruelty-Free U.S. Companies [Complete List]


At one point in the not-so-distant future, it’s bound to happen that all cosmetic companies see the light and support the Humane Cosmetics Act. Because, let’s face it, rabbits don’t ever need to wear lipstick (Jessica Rabbit aside).

The Humane Cosmetics Act is moving us closer to a cruelty-free America. Introduced by Representative Jim Moran (D-VA), the bill would ban all animal testing in the U.S. for cosmetic products. Similar acts exist throughout the EU, Norway, India and Israel.

More than 130 companies have signed on in support of the bill, with five more companies just adding their support–Sappo Hill Soapworks, It’s a 10 Hair care, Whip Hand Cosmetics, Darla Makeup, Malin+Goetz–bringing the total now to 138 companies who want to end animal testing.

“Safe, innovative cosmetic products can be created without harming animals. The Humane Society of the United States is delighted to see 138 cosmetics industry members have now endorsed this bill,”said Leah Gomez, project manager at The Humane Society of the United States. “Through our Be Cruelty-Free USA campaign, we continue to urge members and stakeholders of the cosmetics industry to support this legislation that would bring the U.S. in line with a growing worldwide momentum away from animal testing for cosmetics.”

California recently passed Senate Joint Resolution 22 (the Cruelty Free Cosmetics Resolution), which is putting the pressure on Congress to come up with a reasonable deadline on prohibiting animal testing.
