No! to animal testing … yes! to great hair

Taking a strong ethical stance is something we're used to at Hubble & Hattie HQ, and when we hear of other companies doing the same, we like to spread the word …

In this post, we're highlighting the work of one of the high street's biggest brands. Many of you will be familiar with Paul Mitchell: it's been making hair products since 1980, and is a mainstay in some of the largest creative hair salons worldwide, as well as thousands of smaller, independent salons.

The company's products are known for their effectiveness, and for being free from harmful additives such as parabens. But, something many of you may not know, is that all of its products are also cruelty-free. In fact, they have ALWAYS been cruelty-free. From styling products and hair care systems, to cutting edge styling tools and colourings, Paul Mitchell has never tested on animals … and it never will.

As the first professional beauty company to stand up against animal testing (shame on you, other brands!), Paul Mitchell is putting its money where its mouth is by donating the proceeds from the sale of all of its retail bags to Cruelty Free International, creator of the Leaping Bunny logo, the only recognised symbol guaranteeing that no animal tests were done in the development of a certified product. Paul Mitchell estimates this year's donations will exceed £15,000.

Of course, it's all very well us having beautiful, luxurious, cruelty-free hair, but what about our pets? Not content with making pampering potions solely for us humans, Paul Mitchell has applied its ethical stance and hair care expertise to a range of pet products: JP Pet®. Dry, flakey pooch? Try the Tea Tree range. Irritated, itchy cats? Calming Moisturizing Shampoo is just the ticket.

As well as a great range of pet shampoos and conditioners, suitable for cats and dogs, the JP Pet range includes Body & Paw Pet Wipes (ideal for keeping the outside off the carpet), Tooth & Gum Wipes (perfect for those pet selfies), and even Ear & Eye Wipes … with the party season about to start, there's now no excuse for you and your pet to be anything less than red-carpet-ready!

Head over to the John Paul Pet website to see the entire range, as well as pickup some excellent doggy grooming tips and pet-related news. It's so refreshing to see a big brand caring for our animal buddies. Paul Mitchell and JP Pet can be found on social media … checkout all the #JPPETFAN pics!
