Luxury wellbeing brand Aromatherapy Associates has gained Cruelty Free International’s Leaping Bunny accreditation, meaning its entire product range is free from animal testing. 

Leaping Bunny Programme

Internationally recognised, the Leaping Bunny Programme sets the highest standards for cruelty-free cosmetics, personal care and household products. To gain the accreditation, brands must meet rigorous global criteria, including animal testing laws. 

The initiative also checks a brand’s supply chain, including both suppliers and manufacturers, for animal testing, and requires that it regularly collects evidence from its supply chain. Ongoing and independent audits are also carried out on the supply chain post-approval.
