    Our commitment to leading a cruelty free lifestyle extends beyond makeup. In addition to our strict no-animal testing policy, we also partner with organizations like our local animal shelter, the Berkshire Humane Society (BHS).
    "Years ago, I walked into the Berkshire Humane Society to see how it was run and liked what I saw. I have been friends with the director ever since. When we needed a cat for my mother, we adopted Charlie, who went on to live a long and happy life." -Jane
    Jane began supporting the Berkshire Humane Society years ago, when she realized that the shelter's practices aligned with our commitment to the compassionate treatment of animals.
