FOREVER AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING

WE DID IT!

Thanks to your support, we’ve gathered 8 million signatures for our campaign to end animal testing in cosmetics forever. The petition has now closed, so we’re on our way to the United Nations with all your signatures. Find out how we’re going to wipe it out for good.


LET’S BAN ANIMAL TESTING IN COSMETICS. EVERYWHERE. FOREVER.

Did you know that over 80% of countries have no laws around animal testing? We’re taking a stand to stop this cruelty, and you can help. Sign our petition with Cruelty Free International to get animal testing in cosmetics banned worldwide. We’re aiming to reach 8 million signatures to present the UN in 2018.
