                          Hi gorgeous! At Benefit Cosmetics, we do not make the claim that we are cruelty free. However, we would like to stress that we do not test our products on animals and are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are actively working to promote the development, validation, and recognition of non-animal methods. For instance, we are playing a leading role in the development of alternative methods through our support of the "Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing" in the United States and our active participation in the validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association (Cosmetics Europe). Additionally, we are one of the few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the safety of our customers, which is our foremost priority. We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide. xoxo B
