End Animal Testing in China


Target: China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA)

Goal: Stop mandatory cosmetic animal testing in China

Animal testing for cosmetics has been on the decline over the past decade. Several countries have already placed bans on the practice. The real problem, however, lies in china where it is actually mandatory that all cosmetic products are tested on animals. This must be stopped immediately so that we can finally put an end to the cruel and unnecessary practice of cosmetic animal testing.

Cosmetics companies who want to sell their products in China, regardless of where the company is located, must first test on animals. China is one of the largest markets in the world for corporations that deal in beauty products and, unfortunately, even those brands located in places like the European Union where there is a ban on cosmetic animal testing, still sell their products in China because they can’t lose out on such a significant market. The Chinese beauty market really is the last step to a successful global end to cosmetic animal testing. Fortunately, some of the companies choosing to remain in China have tried to pressure the government and, as a result, China is considering abolishing the law as early as next year.

California, New Jersey, New York, and the entire European Union have already banned cosmetic animal testing. Some of the tests animals must endure for the sake of beauty products are skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed onto the shaved skin or dripped into the eyes of restrained rabbits, force-feeding studies that can last months to look for signs of illness, health hazards, cancer or birth defects, and lethal dose tests in which animals are forced to swallow large amounts of a test chemical to determine the dose that causes death.

Cosmetic testing is responsible for some of the most cruel and unnecessary experimentation on animals and must be stopped. Please sign the petition below and demand that China follow through and end this horrific mandate on animal testing.


Dear CFDA,

China remains on of the largest markets in the world for beauty products and sadly, is the only country in the world that requires all of its cosmetic products to be tested on animals. Several states within the United States and the entire European Union have already abolished such practices in the hope that it will lead to a global ban on these horrible and unnecessary experiments.

The Chinese market is the biggest hurdle remaining in making this a reality. Forcing animals to endure such cruelty for something as insignificant as makeup and beauty products is a travesty and must be stopped. Please abolish the law requiring animal testing so that the world can right this injustice.

    I say we test on humans. There are pleanty of murders and pedophiles in our prison system. Im sure the families of the victims would love to see them tortured. I know i would. Then maybe that pervert guy down the street would think twice about kidnapping and sexually abuseing a toddler.

  2. just evil people.

  3. Other countries have already stopped using products tested on animals or at least phasing them out. We need to whole world to understand that using animals as machines is not acceptable. STOP NOW!

  4. Make sure you also send email to president of cosmetic company letting them know you have stopped purchasing their products! Sending to customer service doesn’t help…what do they care!!
    Get it out there on ALL social media, plz!

    end animal tests

  6. First of all, I do not know where we get off using animals as we please. Secondly, how much more testing do we need? This is ridiculous. Stop buying so much crap! That is all we do, buy crap that we do not need which ends up in landfills. Ladies, enough with the mascara and lipstick. Do you really need to layer this stuff on your face day after day? And yes, why are we not testing on ourselves, are we that gutless that we need to use innocent beings?

  7. What’s wrong with China?

      What’s right with China is a better question. The answer is nothing. It seems every act of cruelty against other species and environmental destruction leads backs to their greed and lust to be a big player. I use natural cruelty free skincare and cosmetics and find they’re better than the alternative.

  8. no more animal testing! no more torture! enough is enough!

  9. “The passage of this act is the wrong approach, and the United States should instead harmonize its cosmetics laws with those of the European Union, Israel, and India, which prohibit the use of animals to test cosmetics and their component ingredients while ensuring consumer safety.” http://leapingbunny.org/press15.php

    You have to be really careful, some companies like Avon and Revlon who USED not to agree with cruel tests now just market in China, others don’t actually commission tests themselves but if they sell in China the horrible fact is that they will be likely animal tested even if already at some point the ingredients have been animal tested? Also make sure who the ‘parent company’ are, if L’Oreal, P&G or Colgate they will not be cruelty free.

    Luckily there are still some good brands, Neal’s Yard, Inika, Lavera who are more ethical, look out for the Leaping Bunny symbol also

  11. Of course China has to be involved with this sadism and evilness.
    They are the vilest of animal torturers Worldwide.
