Primark own-brand cosmetics officially certified cruelty free

“We are proud to announce that own-brand cosmetics at Primark have been awarded coveted Leaping Bunny status by Cruelty Free International, the gold standard certification programme for products that are free from animal testing.

“From now on, the entire Primark PS… range including make-up, skincare and haircare products feature the Leaping Bunny logo, a visible reminder that cosmetics at Primark are officially cruelty free.

“Leaping Bunny accreditation at Primark means there’s now even more choice for people looking for affordable cosmetics on the high street that are not only guaranteed cruelty free but also follow the latest trends and deliver as well as more expensive products. With over 2,500 products and 7,000 individual ingredients verified, the certification programme is one of the largest ever undertaken by Cruelty Free International.

“Launched in the 1990s, the Leaping Bunny certification programme guarantees that neither the product nor any ingredient it contains have been tested on animals, either by the company or its suppliers.

“Having confidence in the cosmetics you choose is an important part of looking and feeling good, whatever your age, style or budget. It’s the reason customers choose Primark. This important recognition is part of our commitment to our customers that products produced on our behalf are made with care for people, animals and for the environment.”
