Thanks to the support of caring PETA donors, attention-grabbing campaigning, and cutting-edge scientific investment by PETA's international affiliates, more cosmetics tests on animals are heading to the grave. Business-savvy companies are listening like never before to PETA and the millions of caring consumers like you who support us, and they're moving to embrace animal-friendly products and test methods as a result.

Yet, despite so much terrific progress, millions of animals are still suffering in tests for cosmetics ingredients, chemical toxicity tests, and worthless studies that offer no insights into human health. Through our campaigns, exposés, and social media advocacy, PETA and our international affiliates are working to end such tests and increase the demand for products for which no one is harmed.

We saw more progress last month as Australia's Parliament passed a bill that will end reliance on deadly tests on animals for ingredients used exclusively in cosmetics. This is an important milestone that will soon prevent experimenters from applying chemicals to animals' eyes or skin in agonizing, ineffective tests for cosmetics ingredients. PETA Australia and its supporters are now keeping the pressure on politicians to ensure the bill's timely implementation.

The new legislation still allows products tested on animals in China to be sold in Australia, so consumers there will still need to consult the PETA U.S. "Beauty Without Bunnies" database to verify which cosmetics products are truly cruelty-free.

That popular database now includes an exciting newcomer, as PETA U.S. recently welcomed iconic global brand Herbal Essences to the cruelty-free list. The cruelty-free bunny logo will be hopping onto some of the brand's packaging soon. And although Herbal Essences is sold in China—where tests on animals are required for many products—its parent company, Procter & Gamble, has worked within Chinese regulations to make sure that its products will be cruelty-free everywhere they're sold.

We're inching closer to a cruelty-free future, but animals in laboratories and other dismal places still need our assistance.
On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo discusses how the National Institutes of Health wastes billions in tax dollars on cruel, useless animal experiments.
