We are so happy to announce that &Sunny has been awarded the highly respected Leaping Bunny certification! This is the most trusted cruelty free certification for non-animal tested products! So, what exactly does that mean?
Leaping Bunny Certification: The Facts
In an effort to hold companies responsible and help consumers navigate ethical products, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics. From there, they created the Leaping Bunny Certification, an internationally recognized logo that helps make shopping for animal-friendly goods an easier and more trustworthy experience.
All companies that are Leaping Bunny Certified must comply with the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals. This is a voluntary pledge that companies make to remove animal testing from every stage of development. To ensure the standard is upheld at all levels, the company’s ingredient suppliers also make the same pledge – resulting in products that are 100% free of animal testing.
Awarded companies must also agree to ongoing independent audits and recommit to the program annually. Sound rigorous? It is! But we know that cruelty-free is the way to be, and we are happy to make that guarantee to our customers and be able to provide more available options when it comes to beauty and self-care products that protect our precious fur babies.
In short, the Leaping Bunny Certification process requires us to:
- Verify that both our products and ingredients are not tested on animals.
- Disclose and provide documentation that ensures that our lab and suppliers do not conduct animal testing.
- Submit to audits as necessary to ensure compliance.
- Renew accreditation annually.
The &Sunny Standard
The &Sunny beauty and wellness line was crafted by women for women (just like you)! We believe the best products are simple, honest and natural; which is why along with our Broad-Spectrum Hemp Oil, we source only the finest botanicals that mother nature has to offer. All of our products are created without synthetic ingredients, parabens, chemicals, fillers and, you guessed it, animal testing. But wait, there’s more!
Every single product that &Sunny creates must meet high standards when it comes to quality, efficacy and enjoyment. From the initial brainstorming all the way down to final testing, many steps take place before it actually makes it into your hands. We test all our products for pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, etc., and we triple test for potency (yes – you read that right, TRIPLE test) through an independent third-party laboratory. So, what we promise is what is delivered.
In summary? We are committed to producing beauty and wellness products that are safe and ethically and sustainably made from start to finish. Here are the highlights:
- Leaping Bunny Certified (YAY!)
- Made from natural, non-toxic ingredients
- Made in the USA
- Made by hand
- Third-party tested
- Packaged in eco-friendly materials
