Whether it’s Fenty or Glossier, we all have our favorite beauty brands. But for many of us, we can only justify buying make-up and skincare products when they are cruelty-free. And Garnier, one of the biggest beauty brands in the world, has announced all its products are now cruelty-free.

We are all trying to do our bit to be more conscious and sustainable, and a great place to start is through the best sustainable fashion brands and clean beauty and skincare. And now a beauty industry giant has joined the growing list.

Garnier has been awarded the coveted ‘Leaping Bunny’ certification, which is the most trusted certification to show not only that the brand is cruelty-free, but that it has procedures and policies in place to prove it.

Now you can feel reassured by the knowledge that no animals were tested on the brand’s products when you use your favorite micellar water. 

Michelle Thew, CEO of Cruelty Free International, said in a press release: ‘It has taken many months, but Garnier have diligently reviewed every supplier and source and we are completely confident with the results.’

To earn the Leaping Bunny certification, a careful and thorough inspection was taken of Garnier's 500 international suppliers, who source more than 3,000 ingredients from around the world.

In an Instagram post announcing the news, Cruelty Free International said: ‘🐰 All Garnier products now have our gold standard stamp of approval.’

This move by Garnier is a huge step for the beauty industry, as it’s important for the world’s leading brands to be making conscious choices and taking responsibility for the way they make and test their products. 

Now you can opt to buy all your favorite products from a trusted, affordable and easily available brand that is now 100% cruelty-free, from its make-up removers to shampoo.
