Help ban sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the U.S.

: Help ban sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the U.S.

By Peri Gallucci

Dear Editor,

While there are many wonderful cosmetics companies that do not test on animals, there are still some companies that use these cruel and unnecessary tests for their products. Non-animal test methods and thousands of safe ingredients already exist for companies to use for their cosmetics products, making the animal tests unnecessary.

As Washington residents, we can encourage our U.S. Senator Patty Murray to support and cosponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act (S. 3357/H.R. 6207), legislation that will ban the manufacture and sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the United States.

This vital bill is endorsed by more than 370 independent companies in addition to the approximately 600 members represented by the Personal Care Products Council. It is time for the United States to align our nation with the 41 countries and eight states that have already passed similar legislation.

I hope readers will join me in contacting U.S. Senator Patty Murray to make this change happen.

Thank you.

Peri Gallucci
