All Co-op branded cosmetics and household products, including cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning products, are cruelty free.
Campaigning for cruelty free
Co-op branded household products have carried Cruelty Free International’s leaping bunny label since 2004, when we became the first major UK grocer to gain the certification across all cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning products.
However, we first campaigned for cruelty-free products in 1990 when we lobbied parliament for better labelling on animal testing of products so that shoppers could make an informed choice about what to buy.
Help end animal testing for cosmetics worldwide
13 years on from us, the EU banned testing on animals in cosmetics.
To commemorate 5 years since the EU ban, Cruelty Free International are petitioning the United Nations to adopt an international convention to end animal testing for cosmetics everywhere, forever.
