The link above is the website of the international coalition for cruelty-free cosmetics.
If you’ve ever tried to compare products and have wondered what the difference was between one company’s “vegan sourced”, another’s “cruelty free” and “not tested on animals”, these guys are the true arbiter to help you figure out those confusing claims.
Bonus: they have an app for iPhone and Android!
UPDATE, 10/26: I love the app. I don’t have the latest iPhone, I have an elderly Samsung so I was interested to see how it would work. I was at the store and checked a brand of laundry detergent I had been buying because I remembered them advertising as “not tested on animals” apparently that was long ago, because when I clicked on my leaping bunny logo, chose “products” from the menu, and scrolled down looking for their name… nope. But Seventh Generation was the best-priced of the options that were listed in the detergent aisle, so I bought theirs. I did confirmation checks on two other products, fast, easy, super app. 🙂
