The Hon Peter Dutton MP, Minister for Health

End animal testing for cosmetics in Australia by December 2015

    1. Petition by

      Cruelty Free International

80% of the world – including Australia – still allows animal testing for cosmetics.

Countless animals around the globe suffer in cruel experiments to test cosmetics – rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and rats are routinely injected, gassed, force-fed and killed for cosmetics testing worldwide.

We believe this is ethically unacceptable and unnecessary.  Alternative tests are available which are more reliable, faster and cheaper than the animal tests they replace.

The European Union, India, Israel have all banned cruel cosmetics, proving it is possible to have a thriving cosmetics industry without cruel animal tests.

On the first anniversary of the EU ban, Cruelty Free International is sending a detailed proposal to the Health Minister Peter Dutton. Please add your support to Cruelty Free International’s call on the Government of Australia to implement a ban on the use of animals to test cosmetics and ingredients by December 2015.

1 million people have already added their names to Cruelty Free International’s pledge for a global ban on animal testing for cosmetics.

Australia must not get left behind – it is time to turn our backs on cruel cosmetics tests forever.

      There is absolutely NO need for this anymore. NONE. I've had a pet rabbit like the ones pictured for years. This is disgusting and heartbreaking. They are NOT vermin.

      There are plenty of prisoners that deserve to be test subjects. Leave the animals alone!
