Since the beginning, Thrive Causemetics has been 100% vegan + cruelty-free and today we are incredibly proud to announce that we are now Leaping Bunny certified by Cruelty Free International, one of the world's longest standing and most respected animal protection organizations.
The Leaping Bunny Program is the highest standard for companies that are committed to no animal testing. Leaping Bunny’s certification program is internationally recognized and is the most rigorous worldwide, requiring companies and their suppliers to undergo regular audits of product ingredients, formulas, and the development and manufacturing processes.

“I really believe that the future of the beauty industry is cruelty-free and vegan, and organizations like Leaping Bunny are continuing to drive major change in an industry working hard to be more responsible,” said Karissa Bodnar, Founder and CEO of Thrive Causemetics. “Consumers are in the know now more than ever, especially millennials and Gen Zers, and their purchasing habits are aligning directly with their personal values. As an animal loving millennial myself, I am extremely proud to have offered 100% cruelty-free and vegan makeup since the beginning, so being accepted into this program is an absolute privilege that lets the world know of that dedication.”
“We are so excited to welcome Thrive Causemetics into the Leaping Bunny family of certified cruelty-free companies. Not only does this brand produce great products and generously give back to women’s causes, they now have committed to being cruelty-free. Becoming Leaping Bunny certified means that no animal testing occurs at any stage of a product’s development, from ingredients to formulations, to finished products, “ said Kim Paschen, Program Manager, Leaping Bunny.
We are proud of our 100% vegan and cruelty-free status and will always continue to formulate high-quality makeup and skincare products for you, our amazing Thrive Community, because we believe you should never have to choose between your cosmetics and the values you believe in.
