Strengthen Australia's proposed ban to make sure it prohibits all cosmetics cruelty 

During the last federal election the Turnbull/Morrison Government promised to ban animal testing for cosmetics sold in Australia. To that end, we very much welcome the Government’s Industrial Chemicals Bill 2017 which is intended to achieve the ban. But, there is a problem. The bill and associated regulatory rules have big shortcomings which will seriously undermine the ban and these need to be fixed.

HSI is currently negotiating with the Government to ensure unnecessary ban exemptions are removed so that new animal-test data is banned for any and all cosmetic uses, not just some. We need your support to make sure this happens.
