Did you know that the majority of SPFs are- at some point- tested on animals by ingredient suppliers? Because of this, it can be difficult to find an SPF that is 100% cruelty-free (that is, if a brand is not officially cruelty-free). For a brand to be listed on Flawless and Pawless as cruelty-free, the company must ensure that their raw ingredients are not tested on animals, and that their suppliers and manufacturers don’t test on animals, and of course that the product has not been tested on animals at any stage during the production process.
Unfortunately, many brands can claim to be ‘cruelty-free’, but source their SPF from a supplier who has tested it on animals prior to it being bought and used by the company. But fear not! Grocery giant Aldi boasts its Lacura cosmetic range, which offers a family-friendly range of 100% cruelty-free SPF to keep adults, children and babies safe this summer. Lacura is certified by The Leaping Bunny Program by Cruelty Free International, the only internationally recognised certification program- and also the most reliable cruelty-free certification. For a brand to be certified by The Leaping Bunny, their entire line is scrutinised and is required to supply independent audits.
