Leaping Bunny is comprised of eight national animal protection groups that banded together in the 90’s to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. We work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy. Learn more at www.leapingbunny.org
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 5 million members and supporters. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry.

Shelf-life –our products are stable for at least 36 months – the 36 M belongs on the jar – see how others do it. No other sunscreen on the market has 36 mo. proven shelf-life.
Gluten- free – our products do not contain any gluten or glutinous ingredients
Non-GMO – none of our ingredients are made from genetically modified organisms (GMO) – and we don’t use reconstituted products (such as powdered aloe or synthetic pelletized beeswax)
Recyclable PE/PP: We use only recyclable polyethylene/polypropylene for our tubes for our sunscreen and our Nutrasporin®. These plastics are filled with inert, inorganic titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, and magnesium carbonate (inorganic minerals found in the earth’s soil) Having the recycling code, the chasing arrows with the PE merely is not an automatic indicator that a material is recyclable but does indicate what the material is. 3rd Rock has the expertise to determine if the material is recyclable or not.
Biodegradable: All of our products are made from food grade edible, biodegradable ingredients only. The substances all decompose in the environment meaning that they are capable of being broken down (decomposed) rapidly by the action of microorganisms. Our sunscreens actually help to feed the reef as we provide nutrients that support the microorganisms responsible for reef growth.
Made in the USA: We source everything from USA suppliers. We manufacture everything in the USA. We do not use anything manufactured in China or Mexico with the exception of our boxes (made in Mexico). Only a few ingredients – specifically Gamma Oryzanol (France), Frankincense (Oman),and L-Arginine (Japan) are not from the USA. We intend to continue doing and getting everything in/from the United States where it is possible to protect our customers from harmful substances and to continue to protect our environment.
