Ricky Gervais joins HSUS campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals

Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais is urging the United States to end cosmetics animal testing and the manufacture and sale of animal-tested cosmetics.

Gervais joins other celebrities supporting The Humane Society of the United States’ Be Cruelty-Free USA campaign, and The Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 4148, which was introduced by Reps. Jim Moran, D-VA, and Michael Grimm, R-NY.

"I'm delighted to help The HSUS' Be Cruelty-Free USA campaign to end the cruel and outdated practice of testing cosmetics on living animals,” said Gervais. “Rabbits and rodents forced to endure toxic cosmetics testing in U.S. laboratories, have no-one to speak up for them but us. So I urge all Americans to be their voice, support the Humane Cosmetics Act and make the U.S. the next cruelty-free cosmetics zone."

Several countries have already banned cosmetics testing on animals, including Gervais’ own native country, Great Britain.

Ask your representatives to co-sponsor the bill by clicking here to sign HSUS’ form “Support Legislation to End Cosmetics Testing on Animals.”
