The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics does not support unnecessary, repeated or senseless testing of toxic chemicals on animals, and supports all efforts to seek a methodology that would replace animal testing while ensuring that safety testing meets the most rigorous standards to protect human health and the health of the planet. The Campaign believes that the overall goal of reducing animal testing while protecting human and wildlife health can be achieved with more efficient testing protocols, a reduction in unnecessary or duplicate testing, ongoing research of available alternatives, and better dissemination of existing studies.
The health of the planet and all life on it requires that we work together toward a sustainable future. The Campaign’s role in building that future is an overhaul of current chemical policy, which is built on the amount of risk that is “acceptable” rather then the amount of risk that is avoidable. A fundamental change in the way the market and the government view exposure to toxic chemicals will benefit all species.
