As planned, Ms Rabbit - the ambassador for the No Cruel Cosmetics campaign who is visiting us at Cottontails - has been rifling through my cosmetics bag to highlight some cruelty free brands.
She was very pleased to find lots of lovely Dr Haushka stuff. They are my very favourite - for bathing, skin care, make up, the lot. They are a genuinely lovely company (I visited their UK base for a biodynamic farming day last year). Nothing they produce is harmful to animals.
She was pleased to find Jason shampoo and conditioner:
And these goodies are from a cruelty free local producer called Skinny Dip - my friend bought me some for Christmas, they're lovely.
She also found lots of other things from the Co-op and Marks & Spencers - they are the two big name retailers whose cosmetics (and household products) are not tested on animals. It's such a relief to me as it means I can pick up essentials like washing up liquid, soap and so on without having to plan to visit any specialist shops.
But when I do have time and want to indulge myself though I visit The Apothecary Shop in Ledbury - they sell loads of lovely cruelty free brands, and shopping there is a real pleasure.
Finally, Ms Rabbit was delighted to find a big box of cruelty free soap in the Cottontails office. We buy mini soaps from Sara at Mitcheldean Soap to put in with our some of our orders. (And the bonus is that they make the office smell divine!)
Ms Rabbit will be traveling on to her next stop soon. Don't forget to leave a comment if you would like her to come and stay...
