Australia may follow the example of other countries that have banned animal testing on cosmetics, including banning imports from countries that test on animals. The End Cruel Cosmetics Bill 2014 would “prohibit the developing, manufacturing, selling, advertising or importing into Australia of cosmetics, or ingredients in cosmetics, which have been tested on live animals….” Australia residents, please write your legislators urging them to support this vital piece of legislation. Encourage your country to join others in recognizing the inhumanity of testing cosmetic products on animals.
Writing legislative leaders urging them to pass bills that would ban animal testing on cosmetics is one way to engender change. A more immediate way is to simply stop buying products tested on animals .
