Have you ever taken the time to research the companies you’re getting your products from? Are you aware of whether or not your skincare or makeup products are tested on animals or contain harmful chemicals? Are your favorite beauty or skincare brands Leaping Bunny Certified?
If you’re not sure about the answers to any of the above, you could not only be exposing yourself to harmful ingredients but contributing to the mistreatment of furry friends.
What does it mean for a brand to be “Leaping Bunny Certified?”
By this time, you’re probably very familiar with the idea of “cruelty-free” shopping. In the animal rights industry, a product or activity is cruelty-free if it doesn’t involve the harming of animals.
You’ve heard the phrase in commercials, movies, or your favorite Instagram videos of puppies, etc. “No animals were harmed in the making of this movie.” Well, that’s exactly what we’re talking about here.
While cruelty-free shopping became popular by 1996, the rules and regulations surrounding were confusing and unclear. Eight national animal protection groups came together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) and the Leaping Bunny Program to ensure that the guidelines set forth for products and activities were transparent. The CCIC makes it easy for consumers to identify animal-friendly products and brands and the “stamp of approval” is the internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo.
As a result, if your products or the associated brand website features a cute, little leaping bunny, you’ve made the right choice!
