Where do Pukka stand on animal testing?

Pukka stands for life. And love – love of this glorious planet, and every living creature on it. So we will always oppose animal testing, and keep our business 100% cruelty-free.

No finished Pukka creation, or substance of any product, has ever been tested on animals – at any phase of development – nor will there ever be a reason for us to do so.

We’ve never commissioned our supply chain or business to use animal testing, and we’ve never used the services of any other research establishment to conduct animal testing on our behalf, either for a product or any product ingredients.

Our two cosmetic products – Active Oil and Castor Oil – are certified as Cruelty Free by the Leaping Bunny programme. We’re passionately strict when it comes to who we buy the ingredients from and will never trade with any supplier or intermediary who has conducted, commissioned or been party to animal testing.

As part of our certification, each year we ask for written assurances from our suppliers to ensure that the ingredients they sell us comply with the Leaping Bunny programme, the gold standard for products that are free from animal testing.
If we found that any of the ingredients weren’t fully compliant with the Leaping Bunny programme, we’d seek an alternative supplier – and, if necessary, remove the products containing the ingredients from our product range.
