The following celebrities 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.

  • Ricky Gervais

    "It’s shocking to think that behind the glamorous advertising and glossy packaging, there can lurk the ugly truth of chemicals forced down an animal’s throat." Read the press release.
  • 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.
  • Ke$ha

    "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.
  • Liv Lo

    "It breaks my heart to know that in laboratories across Asia, gentle rabbits and other animals are having cosmetic chemicals dripped in their eyes or forced down their throat. It's simply unacceptable and it must stop. There is no beauty in cosmetics cruelty." 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.
  • Owain Yeoman

    "It's the saddest thing to know that rabbits can't cry, which is one of the reasons these gentle creatures are used in painful eye tests for cosmetics. When I think of their unnecessary suffering I could certainly shed a tear, so I'm backing the Be Cruelty-Free campaign to see an end to animal testing in North America and globally." Read the press release.
  • Pippa Black

    "Animal testing is an ugly business, and I have zero tolerance for the cruelty and exploitation that violates any animal subject to these horrendous practices. Make-up enhances our beauty on the outside. Making strong, educated and compassionate choices allows our inner beauty to shine through." Read the press release.
  • Virginia McKenna

    "Testing mascara, shampoo and other cosmetics on animals is completely unnecessary and totally cruel. Is that the choice we make over kindness and compassion? Shame on us if it is." Read the press release.
  • Fernanda Taveres

    "It breaks my heart to know that gentle rabbits and other animals are enduring untold pain as chemicals are dripped in their eyes or forced down their throat. In a civilised society, there can be no beauty in animal cruelty." Read the press release.
  • Judi Dench

    "Using animals to test is cruel and should be stopped. These days, there are other means of testing which do not involve animal suffering." Read the press release.
  • Justine Jenkins

    "I’m thrilled to become a Be Cruelty-Free Beauty Ambassador for HSI. I’m passionate about ending cosmetics animal testing, so I’m proud to be working with HSI who is leading the global campaign to make that happen. Like many people, I had assumed for years that animal testing for cosmetics was a thing of the past. So when I discovered how wrong I was, it was a real life-changing moment for me." Read the press release.
  • Zhu Zhu

    "It breaks my heart to know that here in China, gentle animals such as rabbits are still suffering such pain just to test cosmetics. That’s why I’m proud to become a Be Cruelty-Free China Ambassador, to help spread the message of cosmetics with compassion." Read the press release.
