Cruelty Free International is the only organization solely campaigning for a global ban on animal cosmetics testing. With offices in the UK, US, Brazil and Asia, it has been successful in making significant progress around the world.
Kimberly, a former judge on Sky1's 'Got to Dance', also has her own cruelty-free range of cosmetics, Beautiful Movements (http://www.beautifulmovements.com), stocked nationwide in Holland and Barrett. Accredited with the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny logo, showing that neither the products nor their ingredients have been tested on animals, the collection is thriving since its launch in 2010.
Kimberly Wyatt said: "As a huge animal lover I am proud to join Cruelty Free International in urging governments around the world to end cosmetics testing on animals. With consumers worldwide increasingly rejecting animal tested cosmetics for cruelty-free alternatives such as my brand Beautiful Movements, there's no reason why we can't put a stop to this animal suffering."
Cruelty Free International CEO, Michelle Thew, said: "We are delighted to have the support of Kimberly in our global mission to end animal testing for cosmetics. She is an amazing role model to speak out and join our campaign as well as demonstrating her commitment to be cruelty-free through her own personal line of cosmetics."
Countless animals suffer each year around the globe in unnecessary, outdated and cruel tests for cosmetics and personal care products. Visit http://www.crueltyfreeinternational.org to see what can be done to help animals.
Kimberly joins other compassionate celebrities such as Sir Paul McCartney, Ricky Gervais, Norman Reedus, Peter Dinklage and Mayim Bialik, together with cruelty-free cosmetics companies to put the issue of cosmetics testing on animals at the forefront for consumers and policy makers worldwide.
