I love that Bite Beauty develops clean, safe, and cruelty-free products that are made with food-grade ingredients.
This week, we talked to Lindsay, our Chief Science Officer, about why keeping Eighteen B cruelty-free is important to her. As animal testing becomes a thing of the past, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite companies that are also Leaping Bunny certified.
Leaping Bunny certification means a company is officially recognized as a cruelty-free company by the Leaping Bunny group. That means none of the products or the ingredients in the products can be tested on animals. (Read more from Lindsay on why Eighteen B is Leaping Bunny certified here.)
As animal testing is now banned in much of the world, we have plenty of cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny certified products to choose from. We asked the Eighteen B team for their favorite Leaping Bunny products. Here are the team’s top picks.
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer, Beauty Counter
I am a huge fan of Beauty Counter 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
Coconut Deo, Kopari
I am loving the Kopari coconut oil-based deodorant. Great texture, no fragrance, and quite effective at doing its job even on hot and stressful days!
– Lindsay Wray, Chief Science Officer
The Kure Intense Repair Mask, Amrika
My favorite Leaping Bunny certified product is 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, Head of Physician Sales
Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Pastille, 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
I love Alima Pure for high impact makeup in gorgeous colors without the worry of putting junk on your face.
– Elysia Mann, Email Marketing Director
Beeswax Lip Balm, Burt’s Bees
This classic is news to no one, but I can’t stop buying Burt’s Bees original Beeswax Lip Balm. As a lip balm addict, I love that it lasts a while without needing to reapply. I also love the cool, refreshing feel.
