Show your support for the Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act

The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, SB 1249, was just introduced in the California State Legislature by Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton). The bill would prohibit the sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the state and is sponsored by Physicians Committee and California group Social Compassion in Legislation (SCIL).

SB 1249 would make it unlawful for any cosmetic manufacturer to import or sell any cosmetic, including personal hygiene products such as deodorant, shampoo, or conditioner, in California if the final product or any component of the product was tested on animals after Jan. 1, 2020. Because California’s market is so large, this ban could have a big impact on all cosmetics and cosmetics ingredients for sale in the United States.

If the law passes, California would join the European Union, Switzerland, India, Israel, Guatemala, and other countries that have banned or restricted animal testing on cosmetics.

California residents, please show your support for cruelty-free cosmetics by sending a letter to Senator Galgiani! We have provided some text for you, but we encourage you to personalize your message to make it stand out..


Thank you for leading the charge for cruelty-free cosmetics!
