Gilchrist & Soames Included in New Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free App

Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of the new Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free-App. As an organization who has always been committed to the principles of responsible luxury and cruelty-free development and manufacturing, we are incredibly proud to be included.

The Leaping Bunny Program is the highest standard for compassionate, cruelty-free companies that are committed to creating personal care and household products with absolutely no new animal testing*. Formed in 1996 in response to consumers’ search for cruelty-free products among an oversaturated and confusing market, the program was born as eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). Today, the CCIC promotes a single comprehensive Standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo, certifying companies as cruelty-free to help make shopping compassionately as simple as possible.

While it is clear consumers are increasingly concerned with protecting their furry friends, shopping cruelty-free can be confusing, misleading, and ultimately frustrating. This is why Leaping Bunny is so excited to share its new and improved app. Designed for easy browsing, the app helps consumers easily identify Leaping Bunny-approved brands and provides visibility to some of the most socially responsible products on the market today.

With over 900 companies in its Compassionate Shopping Guide, Leaping Bunny makes it easier than ever to shop cruelty-free. The guide lists products in the cosmetics, animal care, household and personal care categories, guaranteeing that every need can be met with an animal-friendly brand. The Cruelty-Free app is available for iPhones and Androids for free.
