As part of our commitment to ending animal testing in the beauty industry, Coty has gone one step further than not testing on animals and formed a strategic partnership with Cruelty Free International (CFI), the leading organization working to end animal testing for cosmetics globally. Given our size and scale this partnership focuses on the following:
- COVERGIRL is the largest makeup brand ever to receive the Leaping Bunny Certification, following a rigorous audit of the brand’s supply chain and ingredients. We are going to explore Leaping Bunny certification for other brands and certify at least one other brand to the Leaping Bunny standard by 2020.

- We will support Cruelty Free International in advocating for regulatory changes to end animal testing for cosmetics globally
