As I mentioned in my previous post on xoBeauty’s cruelty-free status, there are several factors to consider when determining if a company is in fact cruelty-free (see Why Cruelty-Free Claims Are Not Enough). I reached out to Briogeo and asked them a series of very specific questions in order to determine if they are cruelty-free. Their customer service team was kind enough to provide answers to all my questions.
And I’m glad to say that Briogeo is cruelty-free! In addition, they were recently certified by Leaping Bunny!!
