Animals Will be Freed from Testing Cosmetics

For those of us who have wondered what we are going to do about the question of using cosmetics, which are tested on animals, California is taking  an affirmative action to tackle this question by voting to pass a Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, which will go into effect by January 1, 2020.
