California Bans Beauty Products Tested on Animals

California Just Became the First State to Ban the Sale of Products Tested on Animals

In great morning news: California has become the first state in the US to make the sale of beauty products tested on animals illegal. The bill was introduced in February by California Senator Cathleen Galgiani, and in June the state passed the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act bill, which was then approved in September by unanimous vote. The law will come into effect from January 2020, making the sale of animal-tested products illegal in the state of California.

The products will include makeup, skincare, shampoos, deodorants, and other personal hygiene products. Not only will the product have to be cruelty-free, but each individual ingredients must be free from testing too.

It's not just California making this move; many countries have already implemented this law. The European Union banned animal-tested product sales back in 2013, and other countries with the ban include Israel, India, and Norway. Galgiani said in a statement, "The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act would save thousands of animals' lives each year while making cosmetics safer for humans."

It's a great step forward for the US — here's hoping other states follow that lead.
