Europe’s longstanding cosmetics animal testing ban is under threat

Save Cruelty Free Cosmetics in Europe

31st August 2021

Across Europe, millions of animals are used in education and science each year in experiments that frequently inflict suffering, which can be severe, but seldom deliver on their main promise, which is better health for humans. They include mice, fish, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, dogs, and monkeys. We need your help to end this suffering – for the animals and for better medicine, better product safety, and better environmental protection.

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is proposing new animal testing on ingredients that have been used safely for years. If this is accepted, millions of animals could be subjected to unnecessary suffering. We are urging everyone who cares about animals, to please sign* the European Citizens’ Initiative petition now, to help save Cruelty Free Cosmetics.

We need 1 million signatures, can you help?  Please sign the petition now.

We want to see humane, human-relevant, animal-free science properly funded and fully utilised. That’s why we need you to join us and sign the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) calling on the European Commission to:

  • Protect and strengthen the cosmetics animal testing ban
  • Transform EU Chemicals Regulation
  • Put forward a concrete plan to transition to non-animal science

Thank you for making your voices – and the voices of animals in laboratories – heard.

*To support this European citizens' initiative, you must be a European Union citizen and be old enough to vote. When you sign the petition, you will be asked to provide the following information which is needed in order to verify your signature. 

  1. Full name
  2. Date of Birth
