Bel Essence is committed to being cruelty free.  The only animal testing we do is on humans (us)!  All our products are made to be as safe and effective, and we have our team try out each new formula and tweak it until we get it right.  Bel Essence is certified cruelty free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC), 

Being cruelty free goes beyond our products.  Bel Essence supports a number of animal welfare and conservation programs, and we invite our customers to donate 10% of their purchase by naming the charity you want to support in the notes of your order.  We would love to hear from you about the organizations you support!  We will add them to our page with a direct link to donate and help them raise awareness and funds for their cause.  Bel Essence will also add worthy charities to our cruelty-free give back program so you can help more animal charities with your purchase.  Look for our logo next to the charity for those that will receive a 10% donation from your purchase.
