A Record-Breaking 8.3 Million Signatures to End Animal Testing Forever

Category: Mums Corner

Cosmetic animal testing is cruel and The Body Shop together with Cruelty Free International are working to see that it is stopped for good.


A historic change is coming! Yesterday on World Animal Day, The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International brought 8.3 million signatures against cosmetic animal testing to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Those millions of signatures are calling for a change – to end animal testing in cosmetics worldwide!


The celebration of these signatures is a culmination of more than 30 years of advocacy between The Body Shop, the first international beauty brand to campaign against animal testing in cosmetics, and its long-time campaign partner Cruelty Free International, the first global, non-profit organization dedicated to ending cosmetic product and ingredient testing on animals.



“In just 15 months more than 8 million people signed their names in recognition that cosmetic animal

testing is outdated, cruel and unnecessary,” said David Boynton, CEO of The Body Shop.  “We are

determined to finish what Dame Anita Roddick, our founder, startedback in 1989, and today

we are hosting a special event at the United Nations to call for collaboration among the cosmetic

industry, civil society and governments finally to end cosmetic animal testing everywhere.”
