Help us end animal testing for cosmetics!

The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, SB 1249, will save hundreds of thousands of animals from painful tests, but we need your help to get it through the California Assembly.

The bill, authored by Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton) and sponsored by Physicians Committee and Social Compassion in Legislation (SCIL), 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.

Please write your California Assembly member now and ask them to vote YES on SB 1249 using the form below.

We have provided some text for you, but we encourage you to personalize your message to make it stand out.
