PETITION TARGET: Ohio Legislators; Governor Mike DeWine

Excessive bleeding, blindness, excruciating pain, convulsions, cancer, seizures, and death — this is reality for victims of animal testing.

Despite progress in cruelty-free innovations, popular cosmetics brands still conduct unthinkable experiments on dogs, cats, rabbits, and other common companion animals raised and tortured solely for laboratory use.

Individual states in the U.S. are taking action to save innocent beings from a lifetime of exploitation.

Ohio state Rep. Sara Carruthers — whose family founded Procter & Gamble, a corporation that still tests products on animals — presented a bill that would help end suffering by banning sales of cosmetics tested on animals within the state. If passed, this legislation could spare many innocent beings currently held captive inside testing laboratories.

Animal testing in the beauty industry is inhumane, outdated, and completely unnecessary.

The U.S. FDA does not require the use of animals in testing cosmetics for safety and more than 2,000 consumer brands are Leaping Bunny certified, meaning they do not participate in cruel animal testing.

Sign this petition urging Ohio lawmakers to pass House Bill 495 and ban the sale of nearly all cosmetics needlessly tested on animals.
