Humane Society International Africa campaign manager Joseph Mayson tells Azania Mosaka that they recently did a poll in South Africa and they found that 90% of people supported the ban on cosmetics testing.
We are trying to ban the use of cosmetics testing in South Africa as well as the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals everywhere in the world.Joseph Mayson, Campaign Manager - Humane Society International Africa
We are focusing on cosmetic testing because it is completely unnecessary to use animals. There are sufficient alternatives that are cheaper and accurate.Joseph Mayson, Campaign Manager - Humane Society International Africa
