To be certified, companies must agree to the Leaping Bunny Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, a voluntary pledge that "cosmetic, personal care, and/or household product companies make to clear animal testing from all stages of product development. The company's ingredient suppliers make the same pledge and the result is a product guaranteed to be 100 percent free of new animal testing. All Leaping Bunny companies must be open to independent audits, and commitments are renewed on an annual basis." For more information, visit www.leapingbunny.org.
