Thanks for your email. Our European partner, the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments removed Yves Rocher from our list after it became clear some of their products/ingredients were being tested on animals in accordance with Chinese law in order to legally sell their products in this country. Because we keep the same list of cruelty-free companies, we removed them from our list as well. I hope this information is helpful!
Leaping Bunny Program
Here it is, folks! From Leaping Bunny themselves. Yves Rocher is NOT cruelty-free, because they’ve decided to allow for testing on some products/ingredients, in order to sell in China. And who is to say the products they sell outside of China are still guaranteed cruelty-free? Without having a cruelty-free certification, what is their incentive to keep any of their products cruelty-free? They’ve clearly been deceiving the public.
Here are 6 Reasons to choose the Yves Rocher brand, as they claim on their website. Number 4 is “Respect for Nature & Safety”. They continue to claim their products are never tested on animals.
Lies, Yves Rocher, all lies!
Feel free to extend your thanks to Leaping Bunny for continuing to maintain their standards, and ensuring we have a reliable source of cruelty-free consumer information!
Please await my entry where I post the response I received from One Voice.
