Rabbits, hamsters, rats and mice have traditionally been injected, gassed, force-fed and killed to test the ingredients that go into everyday household products such as washing up liquid, air fresheners and dishwasher tablets.

Cruelty-free companies have proven it is possible to make humane household products without testing on animals; yet tests like these are still allowed in the UK on chemicals for cleaning products.

Cruelty Free International thinks this is wrong.

In 2010, the UK Government pledged to ban the use of animals to test household cleaning products. Yet in 2013, it has still not published its final plans for the ban.

Please join us in urging the UK Government to take decisive action for animals and Clean Up Cruelty.

“We, the undersigned, are dismayed that the Government is failing to honour its pledge to “end the testing of household products on animals”. The Government is currently considering only including finished products, and not ingredients, in its promised ban, which are hardly ever tested in the UK and will do nothing to save animals from suffering in laboratories for household products. We call upon the Government to Clean Up Cruelty and ban the use of animals to test ingredients used in household products as promised by a Home Office minister in Parliament on 28th March 2011.”
