“At Borghese, the safety of our consumers is our highest priority. We utilize the latest advances in non-animal safety testing and human volunteer testing to deliver products of the highest safety and quality to our consumers. We do not test our products on animals, or ask others to test on our behalf, except where required by law. There are, however, still some countries that believe they need to conduct or require animal testing in order to validate the safety of cosmetic ingredients or products. Borghese remains dedicated to the elimination of animal testing on all cosmetic products worldwide. We believe that animal testing should not be needed to validate safety of cosmetic products and are encouraging the elimination of such animal testing globally.”
