This week, Mexico’s Senate voted to outlaw the practice of animal testing for cosmetics, as well as the manufacture, import or marketing of cosmetics tested on animals anywhere in the world after the law comes into force. The bill will now move on to the next stage of the legislative process in the Chamber of Deputies. This puts Mexico in pole position to be the first country in North America to outlaw cosmetic animal testing.
Monica Engebretson, our Head of Public Affairs North America said: “Congratulations to Senators Ricardo Monreal, Jesusa Rodríguez and Verónica Delgadillo, Te Protejo and all involved for their amazing work on this bill. Every bill brings us closer to a global end to this cruel and unnecessary practice. We would urge the USA to follow suit and get the Humane Cosmetics Act on the statute books as soon as possible.”
If you’re living in the US, take a few moments to use our quick and easy email tool to contact your Representative and ask them to support the Humane Cosmetics Act now.
Canadians can get in touch with their MPs to ask them to put the case for a government bill to end cosmetic animal testing in Canada here too.
