Save the Ban: Take Action Against Cosmetics Tests on Animals

Did you know that animals, including pregnant rabbits, are still suffering as substances are forced down their throats in tests for cosmetics in the EU?

Take action today to help save the groundbreaking animal testing ban for cosmetics from being undermined!

Despite the ban on animal testing for cosmetics, animals are still being used in cruel tests.

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) – with the support of the European Commission – is requesting these tests under chemicals legislation known as the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.

At least 150 chemicals registered under REACH are ingredients used exclusively in cosmetics, and some of these are subject to new animal testing requests by ECHA.

These tests completely undermine the purpose of the ban – to bring safe cosmetics to market without requiring new tests on animals.

Help Animals Poisoned and Killed in Cruel Cosmetics Tests

No animal deserves to suffer and be killed for the sake of lipstick or toothpaste. We’re calling on ECHA and the European Commission to suspend all outstanding animal test requests for ingredients used exclusively in cosmetics immediately and let companies demonstrate safety using non-animal methods instead.
