Botanics has confirmed that it is truly cruelty-free. They don't test finished products or ingredients on animals, and neither do their suppliers or any third-parties. They also don't sell their products where animal testing is required by law.
“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.”
Botanics is owned by Walgreens Boots Alliance which is not a cruelty-free brand. If you prefer avoiding brands owned by a company that tests on animals, we recommend avoiding Botanics.
No, Botanics is not sold where animal testing is required by law.
Yes, Botanics is certified by Leaping Bunny.
Botanics is 100% vegan, which means none of their products contain any animal-derived ingredients.
We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their full animal testing policy. If brands answer all our questions and confirm that no animal testing is happening at any point during production and beyond, they're added to our cruelty-free list. All brands we add have confirmed the information above.
