Leaping Bunny Promotes Cruelty-Free Products

This week's Be the Change for Animals cause is the Leaping Bunny Program, administered by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC).   Established in 1996, Leaping Bunny serves both consumers and companies by certifying cosmetics, personal care, and household products as cruelty-free.

Leaping Bunny operates a strict standard backed up by audits to ensure its companies are not testing on animals in any stage of product development. In addition, it offers the Compassionate Shopping Guide with the most up-to-date list of cosmetic, personal care, and household product companies that are not engaged in animal testing.

Here's how you can help:
Your support of the Leaping Bunny Program will help drive more companies to go cruelty-free, sparing the lives of countless animals!


  1. I think that a lot of people have no idea that cosmetic companies, etc. test their products on animals...I've never heard of Leaping Bunny but will follow up on the links, thanks!

  2. Sorry I just read this post. We're behind on our blog reading. TW has been careful since the 1980's to only buy products that aren't tested on animals. She was, therefore, shocked to find out that a lot of these products contain carcinogens, such as parabens, which are linked to breast cancer in women and testicular cancer in men. Please look at ingredient labels also when you're looking for the Leaping Bunny.
