Leaping Bunny

All our listed own brand cosmetics and household products listed in our stores are now Leaping Bunny approved by Cruelty Free International!

The Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny Programme is the recognisable global gold standard for cruelty free products.

 

To earn the Leaping Bunny approval, Lidl GB:

  • Verified its internal standards and established protocols for its suppliers
  • Underwent a rigorous audit of its supply chains, raw materials and ingredients
  • Agreed to regular independent audits of the Lidl GB own brand cosmetics & personal care and household products supply chains

We understand that no other global cruelty free programme:

  • Checks animal testing down to and including the ingredient manufacturer level
  • Requires a rigorous audit of a brand’s supply chain before approval is awarded
  • Requires a comprehensive supplier monitoring system be implemented with annual requirements
  • Requires regular independent supply chain audits to ensure continued compliance
