At Nourished Life, all of our products adhere to strict cruelty-free guidelines. Our best practice principles include avoiding all animal testing when carefully selecting the products we stock. One important certification for animal testing-free products is Leaping Bunny Certification.
The Leaping Bunny Program was established in the 1990s to clarify confusing and sometimes misleading claims about cruelty-free cosmetics. Eight animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) to ensure accurate labelling for products produced without animal testing.
The CCIC uses a single standard to assess cosmetics and the resulting Leaping Bunny Certification logo is recognised internationally.
All products that are Leaping Bunny Certified must adhere to strict criteria:
A fixed cut-off date after which no products 0R ingredients include animal testing
Developed procedures to ensure the implementation of this cut-off date with manufacturers and raw ingredient suppliers
Adoption of animal testing policy verified by Cruelty Free International
Independent audit to ensure compliance with Leaping Bunny criteria
