MUMBAI: In a letter to Ghulam Nabi Azad, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Jaipur Mayor, Jyoti Khandelwal, calls on India's government to end the import and sale of cosmetics newly tested on animals in support of Humane Society International/India's Be Cruelty-Freecampaign.

Khandelwal's letter praises India's move toward a nationwide ban on animal testing for cosmetics, but contends that a domestic testing ban alone "does not prevent companies from outsourcing animal testing to other countries and then importing their newly animal tested products or ingredients back into India." Thus, it is also necessary for India to ban the import and sale of any cosmetic product or formulation subject to new animal testing, Khandelwal notes.

Alokparna Sengupta, HSI/India's Be Cruelty-Freecampaign manager, said: "Humane Society International is committed to seeing India become the next major cruelty-free cosmetics zone. We applaud the Drug Controller General for his support in ending animal testing for cosmetics within India, and are extremely grateful to Mayor Khandelwal for her leadership in pressing the government to also ban the import and sale of cosmetics that have been subject to new animal testing anywhere in the world."

The Be Cruelty-Freecampaign is part of Humane Society International's consumer, legislative, corporate and scientific initiative to end animal testing of cosmetics worldwide. Be Cruelty-Freehas been launched in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, India, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia, and in the United States is spearheaded by HSI's sister organisation, The Humane Society of the United States.

The term "cruelty-free cosmetics" refers to cosmetics products, formulations and ingredients that have not been tested on animals after a specified date because on that date they were already considered safe to use for cosmetic purposes. This does not mean the ingredients, formulations or products were not tested on animals in the past.
