Hawaii To Become Sixth State to End Cosmetic Animal Testing

VegNews.CuteBunny2.jpg?sha=7fed8e53d179e210This week, the Hawaii Cruelty Free Cosmetics Act (HCFCA) passed its final vote in the state legislature and, once signed by Governor David Ige, will make Hawaii the sixth state to ban cosmetic animal testing. The HCFCA prohibits the sale of new products tested on animals after January 1, 2022.

“People in Hawai’i and across the nation care about animals and are increasingly looking for cosmetic products that are cruelty-free,” Gabbard said. “By moving forward with this legislation, we are doing the right thing without sacrificing the necessary product testing needed to protect human health.”

“Non-animal testing methods spare significant numbers of animals from pain, distress, and death. And crucially, non-animal testing methods have higher relevance for humans compared to tests in animals, and thus ensure better protection of human health,” Monica Engebretson, Head of Public Affairs North America for CFI, said.

In 2018, California became the first state to prohibit the sale and manufacture of animal-tested cosmetics when it passed the Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (SB 1249). Shortly thereafter, Nevada and Illinois passed similar legislation, which, along with California’s, was enacted on January 1, 2020.

Animal testing should never have existed in the first place.
