The US is considering saying farewell to animal testing. Here is why you should!

You are currently viewing The US is considering saying farewell to animal testing. Here is why you should!

This summer, committees in the US Senate and the House of Representatives are considering legislation – the Humane Cosmetics Act – that would severely limit, or ban outright, the testing of beauty products on animals. 

There is growing momentum behind the anti-animal-testing movement. More than forty countries and nine US states have already passed laws to sharply put the brakes on animal testing, and legal experts believe that if Congress eventually passes the new Act it will only be a matter of time before there is a worldwide agreement to end animal testing.

TheGreenCell strongly supports consumer demands for natural, renewable, additive-free, cruelty-free and cleaner cosmetics.

From the very start, our company has been totally committed to minimize the impact of consumer products on our planet in a sustainable and cruelty-free way.

  Consumer demand in the marketplace has spurred the creation of a cruelty-free products sector, now valued in the billions, says the Society. “Dynamic and innovative science continues to produce stunning new methods that are more relevant to the human condition and a stronger safety assurance for consumers.” 


The problem is not only animal testing but also the use of animal parts for beauty products. The beauty industry is abuzz with reports of animal species that are being threatened as a result of demand for animal-based ingredients. The good news is that in response to the damaging effect on biodiversity, many cosmetic manufacturers are switching to plant-based alternatives.

Globe Newswire reports that “with growing concerns about planet health, biodiversity, and declining unique species count, people are moving towards products that are both organically grown and sustainably sourced”.

In view of all of this, it is not surprising that a report from IMARC Group says the vegan cosmetics market is expected to show a compound annual growth rate of 6.2 percent over the next five years. Vegan cosmetics generally include plant-based extracts and are “cruelty-free as they do not involve any harmful chemical testing on animals or animal-based byproducts.”

The report states that vegan cosmetics are rich in:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Gelatin
  • Collagen

  “These beauty products offer numerous benefits over chemical-based cosmetics in reducing skin acne, improving skin health with toxin-free ingredients, and maintaining skin nourishment. Apart from this, the launch of various favorable policies by government bodies across countries for minimizing the unethical activities and cruelty against animals during the manufacturing of beauty products is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor.”

At TheGreenCell, we are committed to a culture of sustainability. For us, “sustainable” also means ethically sourced and cruelty-free products.
