The Leaping Bunny standard means that Charlotte Cook Cosmetics pledges to eliminate animal testing from all stages of product development. Our ingredient suppliers make the same pledge, and the result is a product guaranteed to be 100% free of animal testing.
The Leaping Bunny logo is recognized in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and throughout much of the European Union. It is the only international logo of its kind!
What does cruelty-free mean?
Cruelty-free means that the ingredients used in Charlotte Cook Cosmetics have never been tested on our furry friends.
We’re committed to using the highest quality, natural ingredients that can be tested safely on humans during the formulation process. This means an end to the practice of testing potentially dangerous or fatal ingredients on living creatures who cannot consent to being tested on. We’re proud to uphold this standard because animals belong in our arms, not in our labs!
Why choose cruelty-free clean beauty?
In the US, cosmetics are some of the least regulated products on the consumer market. As such, many other popular cosmetic brands use ingredients that have been tested on animals as part of their standard manufacturing process.
The vast amount of scientific data already available on the safety and efficacy of cosmetic ingredients, combined with advances in scientific testing methods, have essentially made the need for animal testing obsolete.
There are no health or safety benefits associated with ingredients tested on animals. It is not only unnecessary, but it is a cruel and outdated practice that has no place in modern clean beauty. Charlotte Cook Cosmetics is proud to offer you the highest quality, cruelty-free clean beauty products on the market, that are never tested on animals.
NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFIED
All Charlotte Cook Cosmetics products are proudly certified to be 100% free of GMO ingredients by the Non-GMO Project, North America’s most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO food and products.
Charlotte Cook Cosmetics’ Non-GMO Project verification means you can be assured that your favorite Charlotte Cook Cosmetics products contain ingredients that are free from genetic modification. We believe in your right to know about the ingredients in the products you purchase and use, and we’re committed to ensuring that you can always feel good about what you put on your skin.
What is a GMO?
GMO stands for genetically modified organism. This means that GMO ingredients have been genetically altered by humans.
You should never have to worry about not knowing what’s in your makeup. That’s why we’re committed to using the highest quality, natural ingredients that are free of GMOs, because we believe in your right to transparency in cosmetic ingredients so you can make informed decisions on the products you use.
Why choose non-GMO clean beauty?
Many other clean beauty brands stop short of ensuring there are no GMO ingredients in their supply chain. It is one thing to claim that GMOs are not used, but we believe it’s another thing to prove it! At Charlotte Cook Cosmetics, we’re committed to offering clean beauty products that are thoroughly vetted and monitored throughout the formulation process so they never include ingredients that have been genetically modified. We believe it is our responsibility to protect your health and the health of our planet by guaranteeing there are never GMO ingredients in any of our products. Since many cosmetics absorb through the skin, we never use ingredients we wouldn’t feel comfortable ingesting!
Charlotte Cook Cosmetics is proud to certify the majority of our products as vegan through the Vegan Action program - Look for the Vegan Certified logo on Charlotte Cook Cosmetic products!
Charlotte Cook Cosmetic’s vegan certified products do not contain any animal products or byproducts, and they have not been tested on animals. We’re committed to protecting all creatures from cruelty and abuse, so we’re proud to offer products that are completely free of animal-based ingredients.
What does vegan mean?
The Vegan Action certification program is one of the oldest and most reliable in the US. Certification by Vegan Action means our products are guaranteed to contain no meat, fish, fowl, animal by-products, eggs or egg products, milk or milk products, honey or honey bee products, insects or products from insects such as silk or dyes, or sugar filtered with bone char.
In a world where the protection of animals is essential for our health and the health of the planet, we’re proud to take steps to ensure that we use ingredients that you can truly feel good about knowing they do not contribute to the use of animals for human consumption.
Why choose vegan clean beauty?
Clean beauty can mean many things - organic, natural, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and more. Since there is no single standardized certification for clean beauty, companies are still free to use animal-based ingredients in their ‘clean beauty’ products. That’s why Charlotte Cook Cosmetics is committed to offering vegan clean beauty products that have no animal ingredients, so you can indulge with truly clean beauty that’ll make you feel your best, inside and out.
While dermatologist testing is not required for cosmetics by law, we feel it is our responsibility to our clean beauty customers to ensure that our products have been rigorously tested by professional dermatologists, so that you can rest assured knowing your favorite Charlotte Cook Cosmetics products will never irritate or damage your skin.
Charlotte Cook Cosmetics is committed to offering you products that are manufactured without gluten containing ingredients in clean, sterile facilities. While we will never use a gluten-containing ingredient, our products are not certified gluten free.
