There are many alternatives to the current torturous testing that is done on animals to ensure a product is safe for humans. None of them are required by the FDA!! These alternatives are already being used by many manufacturers around the country. They are not only cheaper, they’re more accurate, AND they don’t put any animals in danger.
Now that Congress is back in session, The Humane Cosmetics Act (HR 2858) is on the agenda. This important bill will prohibit animal testing for cosmetics manufactured and/or sold in the United States.
