The Body Shop products are endorsed as cruelty-free by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). With regards to our Against Animal Testing stance, The Body Shop® has always believed passionately that animals should not be used for cosmetic testing. We have never tested any of our ingredients or products on animals and we never will. We believe that sufficient ingredients are available for use by the industry, in order to produce innovative, effective and safe products, without the need for animal testing.
The Body Shop® sources its ingredients only from suppliers who do not test their ingredients on animals. This is audited regularly to ensure absolute compliance with the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) Humane Cosmetics Standard. Our products are also endorsed as cruelty-free by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Such are our high standards, recently the BUAV recognized The Body Shop® as setting “a gold standard” for the industry.
