How do you make sure your ingredients have not been tested on animals?

For 40 years, The Body Shop has believed passionately that animals should not be used for cosmetic testing. We have never tested any of our ingredients or products on animals and we never will, and we only source ingredients from suppliers who meet our cruelty free standard.  The Body Shop was instrumental in securing UK and European bans on animal testing for cosmetic purposes.

We were the first company to be certified with the Leaping Bunny logo by Cruelty Free International. Leaping Bunny certification is the only internationally-recognised scheme that enables consumers to easily identify and purchase cosmetic and toiletry products that have not been tested on animals.
