We are proud to be associated with these organisations

Cruelty Free International

Friendly Soap believes that beauty products should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.

All of our own brand cosmetic and personal care products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products.

We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.

For more information about Cruelty Free International, Leaping Bunny and Leaping Bunny criteria, please visit the Cruelty Free International website.

The Vegan Society

In 1944 The Vegan Society created the word ‘vegan’ – Their Trademark is the authentic international vegan standard. Today, products must pass the following criteria to be eligible for registration. A dedicated and experienced team check each individual product application against the criteria, and query any potential inclusion of animal ingredients, including those not present in the final product. Working with manufacturers, audits for products at high-risk of cross contamination with animal ingredients are carried out to give vegan consumers further reassurance. They renew the registration of each product annually to ensure information is accurate and up to date.

For more information visit The Vegan Society website.

Living Wage Foundation

Accredited Living Wage employers have been certified by the Living Wage Foundation.

A living wage employer ensures that all employees aged 18 and over, including certain classes of contracted staff, are paid at least the living wage.

The employer also agrees to increase the amount which it pays to employees by the same amount as any increase in the living wage within six months of the date of the official announcement.

fair tax

Fair Tax Mark Certification

The Fair Tax Mark certification scheme was launched in February 2014 and seeks to encourage and recognise organisations that pay the right amount of corporation tax at the right time and in the right place.

They operate as a not-for-profit social enterprise and believe that companies paying tax responsibly should be celebrated, and any race to the bottom resisted.

Ethical Consumer Best Buy Label

At the heart of the ethical consumer movement, since 1989.
They are an independent, not-for-profit, multi-stakeholder co-operative with open membership, based in Manchester.

Consumer product labels now appear on an increasing number of ethical products and services. The Ethical Consumer Best Buy Label helps shoppers choose genuinely ethical products and services.

It’s a unique label that looks in detail at the ethical record of the company behind the product and the environmental and ethical record of the product itself. We believe that this approach helps shoppers avoid falling for ethical and environmental claims that turn out to be little more than greenwash.
