In a history-making move, the California Democratic Party has unanimously endorsed legislation to ban the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals.
The first-of-its-kind move came at the state party’s Executive Board meetings in Oakland on Sunday. The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (SB 1249), authored by Senator Cathleen Galgiani, would put California ahead of any other state and even the European Union when it comes to stopping the sales of cosmetics that are tested on animals. Currently, an estimated 500,000 animals are killed each year due to cosmetic testing.
