Join our current campaign calling for a ban on animal-tested cosmetics.
The Australian Senate passed the Government’s Industrial Chemicals Bills 2017 banning the testing of cosmetics and their ingredients on animals in Australia in February 2019. This ban also includes the sale of cosmetics and their ingredients (from overseas) which have been newly tested on animals. The commencement date for this bill is set for July 2020. This ban is a huge step in the right direction for Australia and something Choose Cruelty Free has been campaigning for, for over 25 years.
The industry does not need another year grace period. This bill was announced over three years ago now, and we will continue to keep the pressure on the government to enforce this ban as soon as possible, as animals will continue to suffer until then.
Choose Cruelty Free, Humane Research Australia, Animals Australia and 35 other animal groups are asking members of the global public to join us in petitioning the Australian Government to implement the ban on the sale of all cosmetics that are tested on animals now. Join us in our ongoing campaign against testing cosmetics on animals by sending pre-addressed postcards to the federal Minister for Health. At the time of writing, CCF has distributed more than 200,000 postcards with help from consumers just like you.
