For me it’s the stance against animal testing which I learned about when visiting the body shop at Freeport in Fleetwood.

This was a small step forward but it isn’t enough as 80% of countries still allow cosmetics and their ingredients to be tested on animals.

They were the first company to be certified with the Leaping Bunny logo, back in 1997. The 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. It is the only certification that requires each company to be open to an independent audit to ensure that they adhere to their animal testing policy and the Leaping Bunny strict criteria. The Leaping Bunny logo is being added onto all of our packaging in a steady process. All there products are cruelty free. If you have a product from The Body Shop and don’t see the Leaping Bunny logo, you can rest assured that it’s still cruelty free and accredited by Cruelty Free International.
