Parent Companies

Parent Companies are essentially the ‘owners’ of certain brands. Some products could even be certified as Cruelty Free (for example, Burt’s Bees are Leaping Bunny approved) yet still have a parent company that tests on animals (The Clorox Company own Burt’s Bees, and are not CF).

Some shoppers like to only choose brands who are CF with CF parent companies too, so if that is you, this list is for you!

I’ve done my best to ensure this is as accurate as possible, but if you see something you think isn’t right, please contact me and let me know!

Happy shopping!
