Email to Piperberry
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions:
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except Hong Kong)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
Here is how Piperberry responded:
Yes, our products are all vegan and cruelty-free. We have not applied for the leaping bunny certification, but the lab that creates our products has a cruelty-free certification. We only ship in North America, and we are independent, not owned by a parent company.
