Cruelty Free

In January 2013, I made a New Year's resolution to only purchase products that have not been tested on animals and bear the Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free logo.

It's now nearly December 2014 and I'm pleased that I have kept my resolution.

The brands I have been using are Superdrug, Co-operative, Astonish and occasionally Marks and Spencer as these brands' toiletries and household products are BUAV approved and bear the Leaping Bunny logo. They are also very reasonably priced. For example Superdrug and Co-op shower gels are about £1 each.

I thought I would share with you some of the cruelty free products I have bought and used.

I have recently ordered online from Superdrug.There are several things I like about Superdrug.....their own brand products are BUAV approved cruelty free, they are really good value for money and are good quality...I've been using them for years.....but one other thing I like about Superdrug is that they offer free UK delivery for online orders over £10! By the way I'm not sponsored or affiliated to Superdrug...I just love their products!

Here's some of the products I've bought recently....
Superdrug Cruelty Free Deodorants

Superdrug Cruelty Free Hand Washes

Superdrug SPF15 Face Cream for Sensitive Skin
And here's some other Cruelty Free products I have bought...
Astonish Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner

Superdrug Moisturiser and BB Cream

Co-op Air Freshener

Astonish Bathroom Cleaner

Co-op and Superdrug Toothpaste

Co-op and Superdrug shower gels

Co-op Bleach

Co-op Bleach showing Leaping Bunny logo

Co-op washing up liquid

I'm pleased to have learnt that Sainsbury's own brand toiletries are now Cruelty Free and are BUAV approved. I have bought this handwash and a few other items.

I hope they're working to get their household products approved too. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Hello
    I bought a piece of fabric from you in November last year (USA themed) and you sent me a 'Thank You' note with your blog site details, which is how I am here.

    I too buy CRUELTY FREE products and have done for years. I've also been a vegetarian for 29 years.

    I buy SUPERDRUG's own brand products as well, and my home is cleaned with ASTONISH products too. I *love* their 4-in-1 disinfectant. I go through gallons of the stuff and I use it to clean my kitchen and bathroom lino floors too. I just spray it on the floor, leave it for a while then get on my hand and knees and scrub. My grandma will be so proud of me. EASY is another one that is also cruelty free, and there are some at least if not all of ASDA's, TESCO's and SAINSBURY's products as well. Last year I bought SAINSBURY's cheap range fabric conditioner for 50p per bottle and it is really nice and one bottle lasted me 2 1/2 months, the same for the laundry detergent which is CO-OP's own brand liquid, and it makes my clothes (and fabrics) smell lovely. I live on my own and 1 bottle lasted me 2 1/2 months! Good value at £2.99.

    I have to say I love your quilts but unfortunately I'm not 'Quilt Minded' and prefer to sew items. I tried to teach myself knitting but I just can't understand patterns so gave all of my knitting things away and am currently turning my hand to making items with felt. I love felt and working with it.

    You live in a lovely part of the country, and I like to think I do too (Leigh on Sea). You in the country and me by the see (okay, it's the Thames Estuary but please don't burst my bubble).

    Good luck with your crafts, and big hugs to Max and Spencer (and my two cats, Isis and Horus, too get in to a cupboard the moment I take something out. Love them).

    With kindest blessings.
    Cee Jay.
