US to ban animal testing for cosmetics?

The US Congress is considering a total ban on animal testing for cosmetics, according to a report published by Chemical Watch.

The Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act of 2019, which was introduced by Representative Jan Schakowsky, purports to ban the practice across the country as well as usher in stricter labelling requirements for cosmetics and personal care products.

“We should restore consumer confidence in the safety of beauty and personal care products by making safe cosmetics the new normal,” the Representative said on the sixth introduction of this legislation, per Chemical Watch.
