Cruelty Free Cleaning!

We're all about cleansing here at White Rabbit Skincare - and not just the skin! More and more people are becoming aware of not only the harsh chemicals in certain household products, but also the horrendous animal testing that many big brands still conduct, and therefore are reluctant to use them in their homes.  We thought we'd give you the low down on our favourite bunny-friendly brands, which offer excellent alternatives to household products, and help keep you and your home safe in the knowledge no animals were harmed in the making of your toilet cleaner...
