Australians for Cruelty-free Cosmetics

The ugly side of the beauty business…   Testing cosmetics on animals has already been banned in the UK, the EU, India, Israel, Norway and New Zealand. In Australia we continue to import cosmetics tested on animals even though such procedures are painful, cruel and unnecessary. By allowing these products to be sold in our country we are effectively supporting the animal testing of cosmetics.   Choose Cruelty Free (CCF), Humane Research Australia (HRA) and Animals Australia are asking members of the public to join us in petitioning the Australian Government to implement a ban on the sale of all cosmetics that are tested on animals. In the last year, 35 other Australian groups endorsed the Petition: Adore Animals Animal Justice Party Animal Liberation NSW Animal Liberation Queensland Animal Liberation WA Anti-Vivisection Union of SA Australian Rat Fanciers Society Beagle Freedom Australia Beagle Rescue Victoria Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services (BAWCS) Big Ears Animal Sanctuary Brightside Farm Sanctuary Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses DeathRowPets Australia Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary Freedom for Farmed Rabbits Friends of the Animals PERTH Golden Retriever Rescue Halfway Home Animal Rescue Humane Society for Animal Welfare Ingrid's Haven Jane Goodall Institute Australia Melbourne Animal Rescue Monika's Doggie Rescue National Animal Rescue Groups of Australia (NARGA) Inc Oscar's Law Perth Advocates for the Earth Pound Paws Sentient, The Veterinary Institute for Animal Ethics Sydney Pet Rescue The Australian Vegetarian Society (NSW) The Mark's Ark The Winged Horse Equine Welfare ThinkKind Victorian Dog Rescue & Resource Group   In 2003 the European Parliament and the 15 member states of the EU passed “The 7th Amendment to the Cosmetics Directive” effectively banning the use of animals in cosmetic testing throughout Europe and the import of any cosmetics being tested on animals – regardless of their country of origin. The EU 2013 deadline for a complete ban on testing cosmetics on animals has happened! The ultimate aim being to replace all animals used in testing cosmetics with alternatives that are already available.   Under section 81(1) of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (Cth) (“the Act”), the Minister for Health and Ageing has the power to determine the standards for cosmetics imported into, or manufactured in, Australia.   Please request that a standard be introduced under section 81 of the Act stating that no cosmetic shall be imported into, or manufactured in, Australia if the final product or its ingredients have been tested on animals.
