Press Alert: The #CACrueltyFreeCosmeticsAct featured in the @latimes!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alicia Silverstone visited the Capitol in Sacramento on Tuesday to advocate for a bill that would ban the sale of most animal-tested cosmetics in California, an effort cosmetics giants oppose.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Silverstone and other advocates framed the bill as a moral choice. “I’ve been using cosmetics that are cruelty-free for 25 years plus,” Silverstone said. “It’s easy to do and still be able to work in my industry.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She said she expected consumers would also be happy to use products not tested on animals.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“All the people of California, given the option to choose between something that’s tested on animals and something that isn’t, they would choose it not to be,” Silverstone said. “It’s just sometimes too hard to make those choices because they don’t have the time or the money or the information.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The bill’s major opponents, however, are not consumers, but manufacturing associations. The associations have argued they will lose the ability to sell their products in lucrative cosmetics markets if the law in China and other countries does not change.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“We all share in the goal of making animal testing for cosmetics and personal care products obsolete globally,” said Lisa Powers, a spokesperson for Personal Care Products Council, one of the associations. “However, as currently written, SB 1249 does not contribute to the goal of scientific and regulatory advancements that would end animal testing.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
State Sen. Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton), who wrote the bill, said that such concerns were unwarranted.
“I largely believe that a lot of the fear and opposition to change is really fear of the unknown,” Galgiani said.

🚨CRITICAL CALL TO ACTION- THE CA CRUELTY FREE COSMETICS ACT IS NOW TWO STEPS AWAY FROM THE GOVERNOR’S DESK!!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please look up your Assemblymember (link is in our bio) and call this week and ask them to vote “YES” on SB 1249!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Authored by Senator Cathleen Galgiani and co-sponsored by Social Compassion in Legislation, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, SB 1249 would make it unlawful for cosmetic manufacturers to sell any cosmetic in California if the final product or any component of the product was knowingly tested on animals after January 1, 2020, with limited exceptions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are elated with the amount of "aye" votes SB 1249 is gathering from the State Assembly. The members recognize the value of the bill being good for animals and humans alike. The more they learn about the issue, the more supportive they are to see this historic bill become law,” said Judie Mancuso, founder and president of Social Compassion in Legislation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SB 1249 is due this month for a vote on the full Assembly Floor, and will go back to the Senate for a concurrence vote before heading to the Governor’s desk.

Over a century ago, there were more than 200,000 wild #lions living in #Africa. Today, there are only an estimated 20,000 lions left in the wild due to #trophyhunting, #poaching & human-wildlife conflict.

We must do everything in our power to protect this beautiful species. #SaveLions 🦁💛

The opposition (lead by PCPC, Johnson & Johnson, Proctor & Gamble, Estee Lauder) to #SB1249 has “lobbied up.” As one of their lobbyist told us, the big corporations “do not want to be told what to do.” They just want to keep going along, needlessly allowing the torturing and killing of over 500,000 animals per year.
