Get lippy over potential loopholes in the ban on cosmetic animal testing

Animal Testing
It’s great news that in the Federal Budget for 2017, the Turnbull Government announced $2.1 million for its promised ban on using animal testing for cosmetics.

But we’re not quite ready to celebrate yet because the Government is considering two major loopholes that could hinder a comprehensive ban. We need your help to ensure these loopholes don’t end up in the legislation the Government brings forward.

TAKE ACTION: Help us make sure the Government delivers fully on their election commitment without any loopholes. Ask the Assistant Minister to make sure the ban will not include any loopholes so that it is comprehensive and effective and protects consumers from buying cruelty.

The loopholes are explained in the letter we’ve pre-written for you, so it will only take 2 minutes to support our #BeCrueltyFree Australia campaign.


The deadline for this action has now closed. Click here to see other actions you can take.

I WILL NEVER USE COSMETICS THAT HAVE BEEN TESTED ON ANIMALS SO IF YOU WANT TO SELL COSMETICS TO ME, YOU WILL HAVE TO STOP TESTING THEM ON ANIMALS, PLEASE BAN THE TESTING OF COSMETICS ON ANIMALS NOW. & FOREVER.

I am heading toward 60 years of age. As a 7 year old I stopped eating animals and gradually changed my whole life as much as possible to avoid the use of animals in all products I use. I will continue to avoid any manufacturer of any product that tests on animals. The legislation should keep up with the changes in society towards a better world for all species.

I always confirm with the manufacturer that the cosmetics I use have not been tested on animals and do not any animal derivatives

i KNOW what is involved in testing on animals.
Humans have different metabolisms.Testing is NEVER foolproof.But ONE THING testing IS – CRUEL.It is also done to make money for cosmetic companies.
NO MORE TESTING,EXPERIMENTING,NO RE-WORDING of documents,chemical ‘recipes’,ALL ANIMALS GONE FROM LABORATORIES.
STOP MAKING ANIMALS SICK,STOP CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ANS STOP MAKING HUMANS SICK TOO.THESE EXPERIMENTS ARE RUBBISH.
