Ares Sports Rub Receives Leaping Bunny Certification and PED-Free Certifications

Share Article

Owner Scott Hazuda pledges that production process will be cruelty-free and PED-free.

Ares Sports Rub announces that it is now part of the Leaping Bunny Program, which recognizes companies that adhere to cruelty-free standards to produce cosmetic, personal care and household items. It also has received certification from its manufacturer to be a performance enhancing drug (PED)-free product.

Eight national animal protection groups founded the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics—which created the Leaping Bunny logo—in 1996 to clear up the popular but misleading term “cruelty-free.”

Scott Hazuda, founder of Ares Sports Rub, is proud to be certified by Leaping Bunny. “It’s really important to me that people know we’re a cruelty-free company,” he said. “I can’t imagine doing things any other way.” He also acknowledged the utmost importance of carrying the moniker of being PED-free. “Athletes do not want to put anything in or on their bodies that potentially could cause them to fail a drug test. There is no need to worry when using Ares Sports Rub!”

When some companies display the phrase “not tested on animals” on their packaging, they may only be referring to the finished product. The majority of animal testing occurs at the ingredient level, and Leaping Bunny sets very specific standards that must be adhered to by the certified company and its suppliers throughout the entire process.

“When I founded Ares Sports Rub, LLC, I made the choice to only work with cruelty-free suppliers and manufacturers,” Hazuda said. “I’m proud of that choice, and I’m glad I’m able to promote it.”

The manufacturers of Ares Sports Rub, Royal Labs Natural Cosmetics, Inc., were pleased to research and certify the product as PED-free. Hazuda added, “We take a lot of pride in ensuring the fact to our high-level athletic users that there is absolutely nothing in Ares Sports Rub that will make them test positive on a drug test. Ares Sports Rub is 100 percent natural, and it works.”

About Ares Sports Rub
The creation of Ares Sports Rub arose from physical therapist Scott Hazuda’s frustration with other topical pain relieving creams and lotions on the market. Not only did Hazuda find these products to be less effective than they claim to be; he also found that they are loaded with harsh and potentially harmful chemicals and synthetics. Hazuda took it upon himself to formulate and manufacture a sports rub that was both effective and all-natural that would appeal to athletes; however, it provides temporary relief for anyone over the age of twelve experiencing arthritic pain, backache, muscle and joint pain due to overuse, tendonitis, and bursitis. Hazuda chose the name Ares as Ares is the Greek god of war and Ares Sports Rub is the warrior in pain relief. Ares has also been certified by the Leaping Bunny program, which recognizes companies that adhere to cruelty-free standards to produce cosmetic, personal care and household items.
