Over 80% of the world – including the US – still allows cruel animal testing for cosmetics. For more than 50 years, animals have been used in painful tests to assess the safety of certain chemicals used in cosmetics products. We believe this is ethically unacceptable and unnecessary.
Both consumers and scientists are increasingly skeptical about the necessity and validity of animal testing for products and, with good reason – modern alternatives are cheaper, faster, and can better predict adverse reactions.
Sadly, countless animals are still subjected to cruel tests each year to bring a new product to U.S shelves. Organizations like Cruelty-Free International are working to bring an end to animal testing in the United States.
Juice Organics products are certified by Leaping Bunny. The Leaping Bunny Logo shows that a personal care company adheres to the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, and is a voluntary pledge to not test on animals during any stage of production development.
Make a commitment to eliminate animal testing by pledging to only purchase products approved by the Leaping Bunny Program, which provides the best assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories, or suppliers.
