Noughty, an award-winning, 97%-natural hair and bodycare brandand thewas the first natural haircare brand with the Leaping Bunny Programme stamp of approval, having fought against animal testing from its inception. As part of its commitment to the welfare of animals, Noughty will be donating £1 for every order placed on their official website, throughout the entire month of June to Cruelty Free International.

Although Cruelty Free International has driven progress worldwide, much more needs to be done. Only last month, in the UK, the issue of animal testing for beauty products again hit the headlines when the government only partially reinstated the UK’s 1998 ban on animal testing for cosmetics, in response to information revealed in Cruelty Free International’s Judicial Review. Recognising the urgency to eliminate this unethical practice, Noughty has taken a firm stance by aligning with Cruelty Free International to raise awareness and provide crucial financial support to Cruelty Free International’s ongoing efforts to promote non-animal testing and advocate for an end to animal testing worldwide. By pledging to donate £1 for every purchase made on their official website in June, Noughty invites customers to join them in making a significant impact in the fight against animal cruelty.
