Alicia Silverstone Promote Cruelty Free Cosmetics
According to Life kindly Vegan actor and animal rights activist Alicia Silverstone visited California lawmakers in order to urge them to ban the sale of animal-tested cosmetics. Vegan doctors from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) joined Silverstone in talking to legislators about the importance of passing the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (SB1249). If passed, it would be illegal for any cosmetics companies – including makeup, personal care products, and hair care – to import or sell any products that have been tested on animals throughout the state.

“Most people aren’t aware at all what goes into getting wool and are very surprised that there’s a problem with it,” Silverstone tells us, as she names fur and leather as being the most recognized issues. “The [wool industry] is really, really cruel—there’s no retirement farm, it’s more like, ‘Hey, we’re going to torture you your whole life, and then slaughter you afterwards.’ I’m so happy to be helping in raising awareness about something people are quite innocently in the dark about.” , she said for In Style.
