Go Cruelty Free!

Today’s post is about Go Cruelty Free, a website dedicated to giving us every day alternatives to products that have been tested on animals. Statistics indicate that an estimated 19.5 million animals die each year as a result of animal testing in the US alone!

Many of the products on our supermarket shelves, from lipsticks to floor cleaners, have either been tested on animals or contain ingredients that have.
While some products carry labels claiming that their brand is ‘not tested on animals’ or is ‘against animal testing’, these are often confusing and do not guarantee that the product is actually free from animal testing. Only the Leaping Bunny can provide peace of mind.
Products bearing the Leaping Bunny mark are certified ‘cruelty free’ under the internationally-recognised Humane Cosmetics or Humane Household Products Standards.
These rigorous standards stipulate that no animal testing is conducted or commissioned for finished products or ingredients in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date.
A broad range of personal care, cosmetic and household products carry the Leaping Bunny mark. Using the search tool you can find cruelty-free products such as skin, hair, foot and dental care, fragrances, make-up, nail care, baby care and aromatherapy products, as well as a wide range of household cleaners from dishwasher detergents to disinfectants.
