One key requirement that sets the Leaping Bunny Program apart from other cruelty-free certification programs is that companies must annually recommit to upholding their promise to not conduct animal testing on any finished products, ingredients, or formulations.
Throughout 2018, we asked hundreds of certified companies to reaffirm that their practices still meet our cruelty-free Standard. Why do we require this? Because product formulations change, suppliers come and go, and manufacturers develop innovative lines to meet consumer needs. But we know that compassionate consumers need to be confident that no animal testing is involved in the products they use.
Below are two lists of companies: those companies that have recommitted in 2018, and those that chose not to recommit. Please note, the recommitment process is rolling so companies come up for recommitment on different dates, some are still in-process, and some are certified by our European partner and would go through recommitment with them and wouldn't be listed here. The best place to see if a company IS still on our list is here.
We congratulate all the companies listed below who successfully went through the process and are grateful for their dedication to manufacturing products free of animal testing.
For those companies that elected not to recommit, we encourage you to contact them directly to ask them to rejoin the Leaping Bunny Program. These companies will be removed from all versions of our Compassionate Shopping Guide.
We hope this list will be helpful. Please keep in mind our business with companies is confidential so we are not able to disclose specifics about why a particular company has been removed. We will continue to update this list if there are any changes.
Thank you for ‘voting with your dollars’ to stop animal testing.
