method is 100% cruelty-free - that’s why all of our products are Leaping Bunny and Cruelty Free International-certified. that means we’re regularly audited to ensure both method and our suppliers comply with the comprehensive criteria of the Standard of Compassion for Animals.
we’ve never tested ingredients or finished products on animals, nor have we ever ordered third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf. for research and development, we use alternative testing methods - like theoretical evaluation models - to determine product safety without harming creatures, big or small. PETA even named our co-founders people of the year in 2006 for their leadership in cruelty-free business practices + gave method a proggy award that same year.
