Yes, Earth Friendly Products is cruelty free.
Also known as ECOS (which is a Greek word for home), Earth Friendly Products was founded by Van Vlahakis in America 50 years ago. He was committed to making safer cleaning products that not only protect people’s health and wellbeing, but also that of the planet. Starting with their flagship product, ECOS Laundry Detergent, the company has expanded their business to sell hand and body cleansers, disinfectants, pet care, and dishwashing products.
On their FAQs page, ECOS answers a few questions related to testing on animals. These include:
“What does Leaping Bunny certification mean?
It means we LOVE animals and we never, ever test on animals or use any animal ingredients in our products. Leaping Bunny is the internationally recognized gold standard for cruelty-free designation. It certifies that our products and ingredients are not tested on animals, either by us or by our suppliers. We’re proud partners with Leaping Bunny!
If you don’t test on animals, how do you know your products are safe?
We only use raw materials that have been proven safe through rigorous advanced lab testing, not animal testing. Many of our ingredients meet the high standards used in personal care products like shampoos and lotions.”
Aside from the Leaping Bunny program, PETA also lists ECOS as a cruelty free and vegan brand. To support this home and personal care brand, you can buy products from their website. You can also discover other cruelty free brands from our blog.
