Another great reason why I use and recommend NYR Organics! They support the Humane Cosmetics Act.
Neal’s Yard Remedies makes effective and safe beauty products that are kind to people, the planet and animals. They were certified in 2003 as a Leaping Bunny company, and a long-term supporter of the Cruelty Free International global campaign to end animal testing in the beauty and personal care industry. NYR Organics is proud to support the Humane Cosmetics Act to end cosmetic testing on animals in the United States.
Cruelty Free International leads the largest global campaign to end animal tests for cosmetics and other consumer products. Since launching their campaign in the US, a federal a bill was introduced, known as The Humane Cosmetics Act, which would phase out the use of animal tests for cosmetics after one year, and then prohibit the sale of cosmetics tested on animals in other countries after three years. In addition the Food and Drug Administration has been pressured to provide industry guidance on the use of alternatives to animal tests.
Neal’s Yard Remedies has NEVER tested on animals. We believe that it is completely possible to create excellent and effective products without animal testing. Our Leaping Bunny Certification means that our products are not tested on animals anywhere in the world and that our ingredients in our products have not been tested on animals anywhere in the world. To show our support for the Humane Cosmetics Act, we will be writing a letter to the committee that will be hearing the bill on behalf of NYR Organic. We hope that our voice will make an impact in getting the bill approved!
