Pacific Aura Botanicals LOVES animals as much as we love skincare! 🐰 We believe in clean beauty and in cruelty-free beauty.
Our collection is cruelty-free throughout the entire production process from the raw ingredients all the way to the final formulations.
We will never test our products on animals, nor will we ever partner with ingredient suppliers or manufacturers who test on animals. We are Leaping Bunny Certified and proud of it!
What Does it Mean to be Leaping Bunny Certified?
Leaping Bunny Certification is the most trusted cruelty-free certification available for cosmetic and household products. The certification signifies that no animal testing took place anywhere in the supply chain of any product sold by the certified company. This includes the certified company itself, its ingredient suppliers, and its manufacturers.
What makes Leaping Bunny Certification different from other cruelty-free certifications?
We chose to apply for certification through Leaping Bunny because of it’s high standards for certification. Some of the important ways it differs from other certifications or a brand’s self-claimed cruelty-free status are the following:
- Often, cruelty-free claims only refer to the finished product. This is significant because it allows all the ingredients that make up a product to be tested on animals. Leaping Bunny Certification ensures that neither the final product nor the ingredients in that product have ever been tested on animals.
- Some cruelty-free claims only ensure that the certified company itself does not test on animals. This allows companies to hire third parties to do testing. Leaping Bunny Certification ensure that there is no animal testing throughout the entire production process by the certified brand and its suppliers and manufacturers.
- Leaping Bunny requires companies to recommitment on a yearly basis and be open to audits to maintain certification.
- Leaping Bunny is formed by the largest animal protection groups in the US and is internationally recognized.
Do we use the Leaping Bunny Logo?
We will in the future! We will be licensing the use of the Leaping Bunny Logo and you will see it on our website, our boxes, labels, and on other printed materials.
Using or not using the logo makes no difference in a company’s Leaping Bunny Certification.
All Leaping Bunny Certified brands are equally abiding by the cruelty-free standard whether they have begun to or chosen to license the logo or not. We are however, excited to use the logo in the future to make our products easily identifiable as Leaping Bunny Certified!
