The following musicians support Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty-Free campaign, a global effort to end animal testing for cosmetics and personal care products. Join them at hsi.org/becrueltyfree.

  • Leona Lewis

    "If companies can’t sell their products, they’ll stop animal testing, and we’ll be one stop closer to the whole world being cruelty-free." Read the press release.
  • Melanie C

    "I believe we should always strive for beauty without cruelty to animals. A new shade of lip gloss or a different scented moisturiser just isn’t worth an animal’s life, let alone the lives of thousands of animals still subjected to painful testing around the world." Read the press release.
  • Paul McCartney

    "The ugly truth about testing beauty products on animals is that it causes them unimaginable pain and suffering. If every cosmetic tested on rabbits or mice had a photo on the packaging showing these animals with weeping swollen eyes and inflamed skin, I believe everyone would leave cruelty on the shelf and go for the cruelty-free option instead." Read the press release.
  • Kesha

    "True beauty doesn’t come from cruelty. That’s why I want to see an end to the testing of cosmetics and personal care products on helpless animals. Please join me in supporting HSI's Be Cruelty-Free campaign." Read the press release.
  • Chrissie Hynde

    "Please check for a cruelty-free guarantee before buying a product and if it is not stated on the label, put it back on the shelf! Only by doing so can we see an end to the grisly practice of animal testing." Read the press release.
  • Vanessa-Mae

    "Rabbits, guinea pigs and other creatures need us to be their voice. Their suffering for our lipsticks and shampoos is so unjust and I look forward to seeing the day when the whole world can be cruelty-free." Read the press release.
  • Dr. Brian May

    "I am really shocked that in the 21st century we are still subjecting animals to pain and suffering just to test vanity products like cosmetics. Not only does it sadden me as a compassionate human being, but it also stuns me as a scientist that companies, regulators and governments around the world are still relying on these woefully inadequate, out-dated animal tests when we know very well how unreliable they are." Read the press release.
  • Anna Coddington

    “It’s ironic that behind an industry that is supposed to symbolise beauty lurks something as ugly as animal testing. A rabbit’s life is worth more than a new lipstick or moisturizer; yet these animals continue to suffer for our vanity. It’s time for New Zealand to take a stand against such cruelty."Read the press release.
  • Bif Naked

    "In this lifetime, I believe with all my heart that it is possible for every person to live in a way that encourages, empowers and uplifts others, that cherishes and respects the land and it's people, protects and adores the animals, while striving to create, and maintain, a compassion-based life, and a cruelty-free world."Read the press release.
