The bill was introduced in February by California Senator Cathleen Galgiani, and in June the state passed the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act bill, which was then approved in September by a unanimous vote. The products will include makeup, skincare, shampoos, deodorants, and all other personal hygiene products.

California isn’t the only ones who have made this ban active. The European Union banned animal-tested product sales back in 2013, and other countries with the ban include Israel, India, and Norway. Galgiani said in a statement, “The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act would save thousands of animals’ lives each year while making cosmetics safer for humans.

Not only will the products listed need to be cruelty-free, but each ingredient is required to be free from testing too.

Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma welcomed their baby girl, Banks Violet Bair, on October 25th —  since then, we have gotten some adorable glimpses of their adorable newborn with pictures posted on Instagram. Now the 31-year-old is opening up about her experiences with a newborn, and gave in detail of how she consumed her placenta.


It’s been 10 days since Duff gave birth to her daughter, she recently made an appearance on the Informed Pregnancy podcast, where she admitted to consuming her placenta in a smoothie.


“It was the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had. I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was 10. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.” Hilary, who had a drug-free natural birth, couldn’t take her entire placenta in just one smoothie so to avoid taking pills, she has been drinking the rest of it in the form of ice cubes.
