Did you know that every single Lucy Bee product is certified cruelty free by Cruelty Free International, which is why you’ll find the Leaping Bunny logo on all of our products.
Did you know that products may claim to be ‘cruelty free’ or ‘not tested on animals’ but their claims may only refer to the finished product. A lot of animal testing occurs at the ingredient level.
What does Cruelty Free International do?
Cruelty Free International works to end animal experiments worldwide.
It’s the best assurance that a company has made a genuine commitment to ending animal testing. Cruelty Free confirm that, “Our brands must meet our rigorous criteria which apply globally and extend over and above laws governing animal testing and include ongoing independent audits. Only then can they display the Leaping Bunny logo.”
The Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny is the globally-recognisable gold standard for cosmetics, personal care and household products. It is the only international logo that requires:
- a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the company
- supply chain checking for animal testing right down to ingredient manufacturer level
- adherence to a fixed cut-off date policy
- and acceptance of ongoing independent audits to ensure compliance with all of these aspects
What does ‘Fixed cut-off date’ mean?
This means the date after which the company (Lucy Bee) must not accept animal testing of any of its raw materials or ingredients. Lucy Bee has a fixed cut-off date of 11 March 2013.
There is absolutely no need to test products on animals and so this is something that we feel strongly about at Lucy Bee and something that we want to help make a stand against.
