We believe that testing cosmetics on animals is unethical, unnecessary and should be banned. We do not test our cosmetic products or ingredients on animals, nor do we commission others to do so. We never have and we never will. We are among the few companies who comply with the stringent requirements of the internationally recognised Humane Cosmetics Standard.
All our products are 100% suitable for vegetarians.
support cruelty free international
Thank you so much to everyone who added their voice to the call on Governments and regulators around the world to make cosmetics cruelty-free.
Our pledge rolled out in The Body Shop® stores in over 65 countries across the world in 2012 and 2013, making it the largest and most ambitious campaign seeking a global ban on cosmetics testing on animals. Stay tuned for the Australian handover.
