Roses that glitter for Marks & Spencer!
Marks & Spencer has not used laboratory animals in the testing of cosmetics and toiletries for more than ten years! They are the only retainer in Canada with a full line of cruelty-free products. The more than 73 Marks & Spencer stores across Canada carry 300 toiletries and cosmetics items. They choose only ingredients that have a proven safety record so that testing is no longer required. Marks & Spencer guarantees that its suppliers refrain from animal testing. From: The Canadian Green Consumer Guide.
At M&S, we know that many of our customers are concerned about the use of animals for testing cosmetic and household products. We’re against animal testing too.
We don’t test any of our M&S beauty or household products on animals. But we wanted to go further than this. We guarantee that none of the individual ingredients in our beauty or household products is tested on animals either, starting from a fixed cut-off date of January 2006.
This covers more than 1,200 products and, more importantly, their individual ingredients, from lavender laundry liquid to tea tree face wipes.
All these products have the stamp of approval from Cruelty Free International, founded by the BUAV (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection). You’ll see their ‘Leaping Bunny’ logo on pack, which means you’ll know that what you’re buying is free from animal testing.
