All Garnier products around the world have been officially approved by the Leaping Bunny program under Cruelty Free International, a leading organization working to stop animal testing worldwide.
Garnier is one of the largest globally present brands that has been certified by Cruelty Free International under the "Leaping Bunny" program. It is a huge step for both the Garnier brand and the cosmetics industry as a whole.
Michelle Thew, CEO of Cruelty Free International “Garnier is a global brand that is close to all of us. Our cooperation and assistance of this brand with the aim of stopping global animal testing in the field of cosmetics and our confirmation of the brand within the Leaping Bunny program of Cruelty Free International represents a significant step forward. With a multi-month approach, Garnier has carefully reviewed each supplier and its source of raw materials and we are completely confident in the results.”
The Leaping Bunny program requires brands to conduct forensic testing of their entire supply chain, including all raw materials and individual ingredients, to confirm compliance with their stringent standards. The certificate refers to all finished products of a certain brand - individual products or items cannot be certified as isolated cases.
In the case of Garnier, it was necessary to provide declarations from over 500 suppliers delivering more than 3,000 different ingredients from all over the world. Garnier and Cruelty Free International have been working for months to gather this evidence to ensure that each product in Garnier's global portfolio can officially display the internationally recognized "Leaping Bunny" logo of Cruelty Free International. - Thanks to this demanding process, consumers can buy Garnier products knowing that they meet the strict criteria of the Leaping Bunny program.
Adrien Koskas, Global President of the Garnier Brand "Garnier has been committed to a world without animal testing since 1989. The official confirmation of Cruelty Free International under the Leaping Bunny program is a key event for us and is an important part of our Green Beauty mission. Today, Garnier is taking another "green" step forward, on its way to becoming a fully committed, sustainable and transparent brand working to achieve a Green Beauty mission for all of us. "
This announcement by Garnier builds on the events that made it crucial for this brand last year. In 2020, Garnier announced its Green Beauty initiative, which represents a complete approach to sustainability, transforming every phase of the Garnier value chain and drastically reducing the brand’s impact on the environment.
