Animal Testing for Sunscreens? Say ‘No Way’ to the FDA!

UN LAB Middleware Label: Title Ends

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

For decades, sunscreens have been used by millions of people around the world to prevent skin cancer. (ICYDK, slathering it on can literally save your life.) 😎 🧴 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. 😡

The FDA has said several times that it supports modern testing methods relevant to human health, yet it has refused to allow the use of non-animal testing approaches. Conducting sunscreen product tests on animals is unnecessary, and governments around the world agree that evidence from decades of info gathered from humans who’ve used sunscreen products already shows that these items are safe to use. 🤦 Performing more tests on animals doesn’t make sense—there are better, more scientifically relevant strategies that can be used to assess these products.

What You Can Do

Please urge the agency not to insist on animal tests and to help develop a non-animal testing approach that protects human health instead.
