John Paul DeJoria, chief executive and co-founder of Paul Mitchell, said, “Paul Mitchell is the first professional hair care brand to take a strong stance against animal testing…we just refused to do it. Since our beginning in 1980, we have been extremely proud to be cruelty free. We are honored to join Cruelty Free International in supporting the Humane Cosmetic Act to end cosmetic testing on animals in the United States. It’s easy to see that our commitment to caring for all living souls as well as the remainder of the planet is a driving force in everything we do. Join us, in helping make our world a more beautiful and better place.”
The Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 4148), introduced by Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) now has 35 co-sponsors and bi-partisan support. If passed, the Act will phase out animal testing in one year, followed by a three-year phase out of the sale of any animal tested cosmetics.
