Because this site is dedicated to reviewing cruelty-free products, you will be seeing symbols you might not be familiar with. Today, I am going to introduce you to a little bunny that is on many products – you might actually already own some with this label!
The Leaping Bunny Logo is the only internationally recognised symbol guaranteeing consumers that no new animal tests were used in the development of any product displaying it. The Logo can be seen on packaging, advertising, and websites for cosmetics and household products around the world. (Source)
Indicates that the manufacturer of this product has been certified as cruelty-free by The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). CCIC’s certification, indicated by the Leaping Bunny logo, provides “assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories, or suppliers.” To be certified, companies must agree to the Leaping Bunny Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, a voluntary pledge that “cosmetic, personal care and/or household product companies make to clear animal testing from all stages of product development. The company’s ingredient suppliers make the same pledge and the result is a product guaranteed to be 100 percent free of new animal testing. All Leaping Bunny companies must be open to independent audits, and commitments are renewed on an annual basis.” (Source)
