Recently I have been seeing a lot of cruelty free and vegan brands promoting the Safe Cosmetics Act being run by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. This Act was first discussed on Logical Harmony in the post Animal Testing May Soon Be Required By Law in the United States. The primary goal of the Safe Cosmetics Act is to reduce the use of chemicals and toxins in cosmetics in the United States. To do this, published research shows that up to 11.5 million animals would be required to test and retest finished products and ingredients under the Safe Cosmetics Act for safety, reversing a decades-long decline in animal testing for cosmetics.
What does the Safe Cosmetics Act really mean for animal testing? Keep reading to find out how animal testing laws in the United States would be effected if the Safe Cosmetics Act were to pass.
