Canada Moves Closer to Banning Cosmetic Testing on Animals

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (Bill S-214) has cleared the Senate in Canada, moving the country one step closer to banning cosmetics testing on animals
  • The Act, which was introduced in 2015 by Sen. Carolyn Stewart Olsen in collaboration with Humane Society International (HIS) and Animal Alliance of Canada, would make it illegal to test any cosmetics on animals
  • The sale of cosmetics developed or manufactured using animal testing would also be prohibited
  • The Act will now go to the House of Commons before it becomes law
  • Although many countries have banned cosmetics testing on animals, the practice still persists across the globe; an estimated 100,000 to 200,000 animals are subjected to such testing every year
