The Body Shop, a unit of L’Oréal, has joined the growing list of cosmetic companies that support The Humane Cosmetics Act (HR 4148). According to Cruelty Free International, an NGO, the bill, introduced by Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) now has 41 co-sponsors. 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.

 “The Body Shop is proud to support HR 4148 The Humane Cosmetics Act. For over 20 years, The Body Shop has been campaigning to ban animal testing in cosmetics and we’re immensely proud of the impact we have made in changing the law in the EU,” said Chris Davis, international director of campaigns & corporate responsibility for The Body Shop. “As a leader in the global beauty industry, we’d now like to see the US end cosmetics testing on animals. The Humane Cosmetics Act would help harmonize international laws on this issue which is good for business and good for animals.”
