With one click, you can support modern test methods that don’t use animals. Read on to find out how.

For decades, sunscreens have been used by millions of people around the world to prevent skin cancer. But now the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is pushing companies to conduct animal tests to keep their sunscreen products on the market.

Despite the FDA’s repeated public claims that it supports modern test methods relevant to human health, the agency has refused to allow the use of non-animal testing approaches and evidence from decades of experience that governments around the world agree show that these products are safe to use. Performing more animal tests doesn’t make sense—there are better, more scientifically relevant strategies that can be used to assess these products.

Here’s What You Can Do

Many caring consumers have pledged not to use products tested on animals, and many companies have pledged not to test on animals. Don’t let the FDA force companies to abandon good science.

Please urge the FDA not to ask for animal tests and to instead collaborate on the development of a non-animal testing approach that protects human health without harming animals.
