Australia reinventing cosmetics production methods

24 October 2020 # Hope

More than 500,000 animals – mainly rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice – suffer and die in cruel and outdated tests of cosmetic ingredients or products around the world each year.

The law was championed by #BeCrueltyFree Australia, a partnership between animal charity Humane Society International (HSI) and not-for-profit organisation Humane Research Australia (HRA), which has campaigned since 2012 on the issue of cosmetics cruelty in Australia.
