Leaping Bunny certification means none of the products or the ingredients in the products can be tested on animals.
Is your holiday shopping underway? To help you prep for shopping season, we’ve assembled a gift guide series to highlight our favorite products, brands, and causes. Our second guide is dedicated to the cruelty free beauty brands we love, all certified by Leaping Bunny.
Now that animal testing is becoming a thing of the past, we have plenty of cruelty free beauty products to choose between. Thankfully, Leaping Bunny makes finding them easy. The Leaping Bunny group certifies that brands are cruelty free, which means none of the products or the ingredients in the products can ever be tested on animals. Read more from Lindsay Wray, our Chief Science Officer, on why Eighteen B is Leaping Bunny certified here.
We asked the Eighteen B team for the Leaping Bunny certified products on their holiday wish list. Here are the team’s top picks.
1. Matte Crème Lip Crayon by Bite Beauty
My favorite Leaping Bunny product is the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Pastille. Its formula is so soft, smooth and decadent while being highly pigment to build the most beautiful dusty mauve on your lips. I love that Bite Beauty develops clean, safe, and cruelty-free products that are made with food-grade ingredients. – Ashley S., Manufacturing & Production Manager
2. The Kure Intense Repair Mask by Amika
I love Amika’s The Kure Intense Repair Mask for hair. It’s a highly intensive moisturizing mask that works for all hair types. For my dry, coarse hair I use it 3-4 times a week to keep it nourished and soft (as styling with a flat iron most days takes a toll). It smells great too, but isn’t overpowering. – Janine Cheng, Physician Sales
3. vegaLASH Volumizing Serum by Vegamour
I have my eye on the vegaLASH Volumizing Serum by Vegamour. This lash enhancer is made without hormones or carcinogens and is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. I love that it’s a reliable, safe way to keep lashes long! – Elysia Mann, Partnerships
4. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer by Beautycounter
I am a huge fan of Beautycounter Dew Skin. It is hydrating, and leaves my skin with a healthy glow, plus it has the perfect amount of coverage to smooth out uneven tone without looking like I am wearing makeup. My favorite part is the fact that it has the most gorgeous, cushiony texture – it feels so luxe. When I need more coverage, I just mix in a little Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation. – Stacey Webb, Head of Brand
5. Glowing Gift Set by RMS Beauty
I love that the Glowing Gift Set by RMS Beauty is totally customizable. You can choose your own Glow, Eye Polish, Lip2Cheek, and Un Cover Up to create your perfect palette. – Ling Luke, Marketing Team
6. Nice Meets Naughty Gift Set by Hello
Toothpaste may sound like a questionable holiday gift, but I would be thrilled to find the Nice Meets Naughty Gift Set by Hello under my tree. This whitening bundle features activated charcoal toothpaste, mouthwash, a toothbrush, and vegan floss. – Shawna Nordman, Marketing Coordinator
7. Wet Lip Oil Gloss by Kosas
You know how lipsticks can be drying? Here’s the opposite. The Wet Lip Oil Gloss by Kosas is a glistening lip gloss and a lip treatment all in one. It’s packed with Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Evening Primrose Oil to hydrate your lips (and look good doing it). Layer over lipstick or let it shine on its own. I particularly love the color Dip. – Allison DiLiegro, Content Strategist
