Botanics's Official Animal Testing Policy
“Botanics are 100% cruelty free and against animal testing. With an impressive list of ethical credentials already under our belt, all of our skincare and beauty products have now been approved under the Cruelty Free International ‘Leaping Bunny’ programme.
The ‘Leaping Bunny’ is a globally recognised gold standard for cruelty free beauty products that goes above and beyond legal requirements.
It is the only internationally recognised cruelty free license that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the brand.
The supply chain is checked for any sign of animal testing right down to ingredient manufacture level, so our customers are safe in the knowledge that the legitimacy of any cruelty free claim is genuine.”
