Urge Ministry to Ban Testing of Cosmetics and Household Products on Animals

Every year, countless rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, rats and other animals are poisoned, blinded and killed in archaic and ineffective product tests for shampoos, cosmetics, hairsprays, floor cleaners and other personal-care and household items.

In these laboratory experiments, animals are forced to swallow or inhale massive quantities of potentially toxic substances or endure the pain of having caustic chemicals applied to their body – even though the results of animal tests are often unreliable or not applicable to humans. Yet, although modern non-animal test methods exist, many manufacturers continue to hurt and kill animals in tests.
