Cruelty Free International and The Body Shop join forces to call for a global ban on animal testing for cosmetics.
The Body Shop has always been passionate against animal testing. They have never tested their products or ingredients on animals. All of The Body Shop products are certified under the Humane Cosmetics Standard, which is the highest standard for animal welfare in the cosmetics industry.
As you may know, as of March 11 2013, the European Union has banned all animal testing for cosmetic purposes. In Canada, animal testing for cosmetic products and ingredients is still allowed. But there are safe alternative ways of testing cosmetics without using animals.
To help spread the word, The Body Shop has created a short light-hearted video:
To add your voice to the call for our government to ban animal testing for cosmetics in Canada, you can sign the pledge by visiting any The Body Shop boutique or please sign online here. Only in the last month, they have collected over 35 000 signatures across Canada.
Together, we can make a difference.
