80% of the world – including the Association of South East Asian Nations – 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 ASEAN Secretary General. Please add your support to Cruelty Free International’s call on ASEAN 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.

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