This app is nice but some of the brands on here are only part cruelty free. For example, brands like Burt's Bees and Seventh Generation were bought out by parent companies who do test on animals and the app doesn't make the distinction for those who don't want cruel parent companies. It's nice, needs work but I'm sure the app will improve.
People Don't Understand Leaping Bunny The Leaping Bunny is a certification that has really high standards. People review this app poorly because they don't see their company, but that is because they are not Leaping Bunny certified. Because of recent laws in China requiring all imported personal care items to be tested on animals, many long-time cruelty free companies are no longer really cruelty free. Many companies say they are but on their websites say "cruel free unless required by law" which means they still sell in China.
Great app. If your product does not appear on the list or it is not the best option for your country, don't be a loser by giving an idiotic rate. Stop buying products to companies that used to test their products on animals too, you just appear to be slow.
Nice App But... May I suggest that if you are making it available in more than countries than the US that you expand the products. I'm in GB and for many products this app is useless as they're not in your database!
At the end of the day if you want to be 100% sure about any product just email the company direct and ask them if they sell their products in China, if they do then boycott them because by law in China all products have to be tested on animals :(
A lot of reviewers are complaining that the app couldn't find the product they were scanning... There's a reason for this. It only finds companies that ARE cruelty-free. If the app did not find the company of the product that you scanned, it is because that company tests on animals. Their website might say they don't, but check for the loophole that says "unless authorities required it for human safety or regulatory purposes" or something similar. When they have stated that loophole, it means they still test on animals. I thought l'oreal was cruelty-free, but it didn't show up when I scanned my shampoo. I went to their website and found out they have the loophole stated in their animal testing statement. I learned something today, and I'll be looking for a different brand of shampoo and deodorant.
