NOW LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFIED!
Kudarat is now certified by the Leaping Bunny Program!
Kudarat has always been and always will be, both cruelty-free and vegan. Testing ingredients or finished products on animals is something Kudarat does not support and definitely will not take part in. If an ingredient or product is deemed too dangerous for us to test on ourselves, then why would anyone ever even consider including it in face and body products.
Besides making sure that all of our ingredients are truly cruelty-free (our suppliers have to prove it!), Kudarat is committed to sourcing ingredients that are only from plants, many of which are certified organic and sustainable resources.
Kudarat has three rescue dog mascots, Letti, Gretchen, and Jules, are giving high-paws all around and having themselves a party! These three came from some seriously horrible backgrounds like abuse, overbreeding, and a gang-involved dog fighting ring. Yes… For real. Our very rightfully spoiled fur-babies are a daily reminder of what a difference love and compassion makes.
Some Quick Facts:
- US law does not require animal testing. Neither the FDA nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission requires it. There’s plenty of safety data out there as well as in vitro testing (basically testing human cells and tissues) and even computer modeling that makes animal testing obsolete and inexcusable.
- Did you know that Leaping Bunny is recognized around the world? The UK, Canada, and most of the EU love companies that have joined this voluntary program. Besides, animal testing is a big NO in those countries.
- Unfortunately, China requires that any company that markets or sells their products in China must test their ingredients and finished products on animals. Until or even if this law changes, Kudarat will not be available in China.
- Leaping Bunny certification means a lot more than just saying, “we are cruelty-free”. It’s guaranteed! Leaping Bunny can come and audit us as well as Kudarat has to renew each year. Leaping Bunny is on the total up-and-up and becoming a household name, Kudarat is committed to being a part of this program!

Here are a couple of our favorite products that are also good for you:
After trying a lot of natural deodorants out there, Schmidt’s came in as one of our favorites, they even have a sensitive skin formula which is key. Many natural deodorants use baking soda in their formulations, and many people adversely react to it in the form of itching, burning, and rashes. Schmidt’s fragrances are all 100% natural and of course… gluten-free. Trust us, they are amazing!
Of course, we had to include a little something for our furry friends. Nava Pets has a great line of organic and natural products, including their Dog Wash Shampoo. We love it because it is gluten-free. Gretchen, Letti, and Jules live in a grain-free household, so we had to make sure their products also fit the bill and we knew them to be cruelty-free.
