What Is Cruelty-Free Makeup?
Cruelty-free isn’t a regulated term, so it can mean all different types of claims concerning animal testing. It could mean that the final product hasn’t been animal-tested, it could mean its ingredients were not tested, it could mean that the brand’s suppliers didn’t test it or that they have checked down to ingredient manufacturer level…the list goes on.
Cruelty-Free International’s Leaping Bunny approval is the only internationally recognized program that has clear, strict and rigorous criteria relating to the cruelty-free claim.
