What Does the Safe Cosmetics Act Mean for Animal Testing?

Recently I have been seeing a lot of cruelty free and vegan brands promoting the Safe Cosmetics Act being run by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. This Act was first discussed on Logical Harmony in the post Animal Testing May Soon Be Required By Law in the United States. The primary goal of the Safe Cosmetics Act is to reduce the use of chemicals and toxins in cosmetics in the United States. To do this, published research shows that up to 11.5 million animals would be required to test and retest finished products and ingredients under the Safe Cosmetics Act for safety, reversing a decades-long decline in animal testing for cosmetics.

What does the Safe Cosmetics Act really mean for animal testing? Keep reading to find out how animal testing laws in the United States would be effected if the Safe Cosmetics Act were to pass.

Petit Vour Holiday Limited Edition Box

Petit Vour Holiday Limited Edition Box

While many are familiar with the monthly beauty box from Petit Vour, they also release Limited Edition boxes a couple of times a year. The most recent is packed with makeup and skin care that is perfect for winter weather. I was sent a Holiday Limited Edition Box and could not wait to try the items inside.

The Holiday Limited Edition Box retails for $45.00. It contains five full size products and three deluxe sample size products. It includes great skin care items, cosmetics that are great for daily use, and special cosmetic items too. It is a great mix of products and the box is an incredible deal.

Find out more about the products included in the Petit Vour Holiday Limited Edition Box and read my thoughts on each item in the rest of this post.
