Kesha backs campaign to end animal testing in cosmetics

Kesha has shown her support for a campaign to end animal testing in cosmetics in the US.

The singer has teamed with the Humane Society of the United States for a new video.

They are rallying up support for proposed federal bill the Humane Cosmetics Act, which aims to end animal testing in cosmetics in the US.

Kesha said in a comment: "Once I was educated about the hidden cruelties that lurk behind some cosmetic products companies, I knew I had to take action and do everything in my power to end this inhumane practice of testing our cosmetics on animals.

"Congress has introduced The Humane Cosmetics Act, a bill to end cosmetics testing on animals in the United States. But even now it's easy to avoid buying cosmetics tested on animals by only buying cruelty free products.

"My hope is that with the help of the HSUS's #BeCrueltyFree campaign, we can ignite a cruelty-free revolution and that the United States and other countries join the 30+ others who have already banned egregious cosmetic animal tests."

In 2013, the European Union passed a law that made it illegal to sell animal-tested cosmetics in Europe.
