WHAT IS "CRUELTY-FREE" ?
"Once, I was asked by a friend who saw the term "Not Tested on Animals" on a product. "Why don't people test their products on animals first before they lauch them to the market ?!". Well, I guess you may probably have the same question with hers. Some consumers still think that "testing on animals" are a must, without knowing that how terrible it is to the nature livings. Going for CRUELTY-FREE is now encouraged all over the world to protect our environment..."- by Dr. Catherine
Millions of companies all around the world conduct testing of chemical materials or their finished products on animals. This is an invasion of animals, giving bad influences on the natural world and the environment in general. Therefore, from the early 90s, there was a ringing call for not experimenting on animals. CRUELTY-FREE standard was born since then. Cruelty-Free products do not harm animals, nature & the environment.
WHY DR.HC COSMETIC LAB CHOSE TO BE "CRUELTY-FREE" ?
"I used to travel and live in many countries, but there is no place in the world that gives me the feeling that people and nature live together like in the United States, the home land of DR.HC Cosmetic Lab. Here, you will see the vast green grass trees along the streets every day, seeing deers in a campus, seeing the squirrels running around in the front yards... Your children can play with the little bunnies without having to go to any zoo ... This reminds us of a meaningful life when humans and animals are living in harmony on this planet. That's why we would like to care about the environment as well as what we put on and in our bodies."- by Dr. Catherine
We care about "BEAUTIFUL", not only for HUMANS, but also for the ENVIRONMENT !
We say "NO" with animal testings to protect a beautiful world for our children !
✿ DR.HC Cosmetic Lab is proudly Leaping Bunny Certified. We're Cruelty-Free International!
WHAT IS LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFIED ?
By 1996, ‘cruelty-free’ shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own logos to indicate that they were abiding by their own definition of ‘cruelty-free’ or ‘animal friendly’ without the participation of animal protection groups. In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC works with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products more trustworthy. They promotes Leaping Bunny Certificate as a single comprehensive standard for cruety-free.
The Leaping Bunny is THE ONLY INTERNATIONAL RECOGNIZED CERTIFICATION that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the company, supply chain checking for animal testing right down to ingredient manufacturer level, adherence to a fixed cut-off date policy and acceptance of ongoing independent audits to ensure compliance with all of these aspects. Leaping Bunny is widely considered THE HIGHEST STANDARD IN CERTIFICATION and the GLOBAL GOLD STANDARD for cosmetics, personal care and household products.
WHAT DOES "LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFIED" MEAN TO US AND TO YOU ?
Even though currently animal testing has been banned almost everywhere for cosmetics and their ingredients, and many cosmetic companies "boycott" the tests of FINISHED PRODUCTS on animals, some ingredients used in cosmetics are also used in other types of products, therefore those RAW MATERIALS may still be tested or could still be tested on animals for other purposes (like environmental toxicity). To us, Cruelty Free must assure both, on finish products and raw materials.
Our LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFICATE guarantees you that:
- Our finish products are never tested on animals. During the process of R&D as well as manufacturing, we do not conduct any animal testing.
- Also, we do not use raw materials that were tested on animals.
Leaping Bunny Certification is the gold standard for Cruelty-Free personal care products and is without a doubt, the most trusted and consistent Cruelty-Free certification available in the USA and internationally recognized. This LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFICATE is not only an ethical measure of our products, but to us, it's also a landmark on our way to fulfill the mission: FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE. A better life where humans are able to deeply connect to Nature via environment-friendly products!
