Sienna Miller wants to end cosmetic testing on animals

By Andrea Petrou on October 5th, 2011

Sienna Miller has given her support to the campaign to stop animal testing on cosmetics.

The British actress joins a number of high profile celebrities – including Sir Paul McCartney and Kimberly Wyatt – supporting the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) No Cruel Cosmetics initiative which is calling for a ban on animal testing for toiletries and cosmetic products sold in the European Union (EU) to come into effect in 2013 as planned.

Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of the BUAV, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Sienna Miller. It is totally unacceptable for animals to continue to suffer and die in the name of beauty. Please join Sienna and support our No Cruel Cosmetics campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals. Sign our petition to the European Parliament at www.NoCruelCosmetics.org.”

There are fears the ban could be put back and vegetarian Paul has been vocal in his opposition to animal testing and any delay.

He said: “Animals should not suffer in the name of beauty. Testing toiletries and cosmetics on animals is cruel and unnecessary. Join me in signing the BUAV’s petition to ensure the sale of cruel products in the EU is outlawed by 2013. Say NO to Cruel Cosmetics.”

Kimberly Wyatt has given her support to a new campaign to stop animal testing on cosmetics.

The former Pussycat Doll and British actress Joanna Lumley have asked people who are buying Easter presents to help save rabbits by only buying beauty and personal care gifts that have not been tested on animals. These can be easily identified by the Leaping Bunny Logo which symbolises the BUAV’s Humane Cosmetics Standard, the internationally recognised gold standard, which guarantees a company does not test their cosmetics and toiletries on animals.

Kimberly, founder of new cruelty-free cosmetics brand BM Beauty, said: “Please be kind to bunnies this Easter – don’t buy animal tested cosmetics and toiletries when choosing gifts for your loved ones. Look out for the BUAV’s Leaping Bunny logo.”

Joanna added: “I’m helping rabbits this Easter by only buying cruelty-free cosmetics. Look out for the BUAV’s Leaping Bunny logo.”

Despite bans in the UK and EU that prevent animals from being used to test cosmetics and toiletries, products that have been cruelly tested on animals in other parts of the world are still allowed to be sold and the BUAV is campaigning for a ban that will prevent this from happening.
