Joining Taika is all-star multinational cast including Ricky Gervais, Zac Efron, Olivia Munn, Pom Klementieff, Rodrigo Santoro, Tricia Helfer and more.

You can add your voice for animals to HSI’s campaign to end cosmetic animal testing by taking the pledge on the Humane Society website.

Testing cosmetics on animals is cruel and unnecessary

Animal testing feels so out-dated and cruel that many people are surprised to learn that lots of the big name products on our supermarket shelves and in our department store cosmetic counters are STILL being tested on animals.

In fact millions of animals — including rabbits, cats, dogs and mice — are burned, poisoned and killed in painful and unnecessary experiments every year in order to test the products featured on supermarket and salon shelves.

In Australia, regulations introduced in recent years have restricted some testing and product sales, but don’t go far enough.

You can protect animals by choosing cruelty-free

Help protect animals from suffering by purchasing products with the Choose Cruelty Free leaping bunny logo, informing yourself about major brands that still test on animals, and taking our pledge to avoid animal-tested products.

Plus, one of the most powerful steps you can take is to contact companies and brands that still test on animals, and give them polite feedback that they won’t have your business until they make the right, compassionate, choice for animals, too.
