The Humane Cosmetics Standard was established by an international coalition of animal protection groups from North America and the European Union. Several countries each have their own cruelty free organisation which sets the same Standards and awards the Leaping Bunny to companies that can guarantee that their finished products and ingredients have never been tested on animals by themselves or a third party.
I have a few American products, which can be bought from UK websites, and I absolutely love them! For a full list of American cruelty free companies, check out leapingbunny.org. Most companies will ship to the UK, but I imagine it could be expensive in some cases, so just do a search of the brand you want to try followed by 'UK' and you should be able to find what you are looking for.
