Mexico Bans Animal Testing for Cosmetics

The Rise for Animals Team, September 2, 2021

With unanimous support in its Senate, Mexico just became the first country in North America to pass a ban on testing cosmetics on animals.

This law also bans the manufacture, import, and marketing of all cosmetics tested on animals. Globally, Mexico is the 41st nation to enact a similar live-saving ban. 

It’s a tremendous leap forward for animal protection. We’re hopeful this groundbreaking law will set a precedent for North America to become the next cruelty-free cosmetics market—what a beautiful future for animals and humans alike! 

In the United States, many individual states are beginning to pass laws similar to Mexico’s. Find out where your state currently stands!
