Briogeo offers a range of natural hair care products that are fortified with hair healthy oils, antioxidants and vitamins but is Briogeo cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Briogeo Cruelty-Free?

Briogeo is Cruelty-free! None of Briogeo’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

In addition, Briogeo is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

Briogeo Animal Testing Policy

Briogeo has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals, they do not allow others to test on their behalf, their suppliers also do not test on animals, they do not allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

Below is what’s currently stated on Briogeo’s website:

Briogeo Cruelty-Free Claims: "We never, ever test our products on animals. We love our furry friends!"

Is Briogeo Sold in China?

All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals, however, Briogeo has confirmed they do not sell their products in stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.

Briogeo is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.

You can find Briogeo cruelty-free products at briogeohair.com, Sephora, and Amazon.

Is Briogeo Vegan?

Not all of Briogeo products are vegan. At the beginning of 2019, Briogeo informed me that all of their products have been reformulated to be vegan however they have since released new products containing honey.

Briogeo does offer some products suitable for vegans that don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Please reference below for a list of Briogeo vegan products.

Briogeo has told me on two occasions (March 2019 and July 2019), “Starting in 2019, all of our products are now fully vegan! All previous proteins are now plant derived :)”

However, in late 2019, Briogeo released its limited edition ‘Honey Bear Repair’ which contained honey. Note: This product is no longer available or sold by Briogeo.

In addition, Briogeo confirmed to me the Keratin Amino Acids in their Curl Charisma Line are plant-derived and the biotin they use is of synthetic origin and not from an animal source.

At the moment, I’m hesitant to call Briogeo a 100% vegan brand because of the mixed responses I received from them claiming to be fully vegan but releasing limited edition products that weren’t fully vegan. Briogeo also still has a list of their vegan products on their website (which you can find below) and they haven’t claimed they’re 100% vegan anywhere on their website.

Briogeo Vegan Product List

Below is a list of Briogeo products that are suitable for vegans and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.


This vegan product list is updated as frequently as possible, please be aware that formulations may have changed since the publication of this post. If you have new information to suggest one of the above products isn’t vegan, please email me at info@ethicalelephant.com to let me know.

    I love this! Do you know by chance when their full vegan commitment takes place? It’s June 2019, but they still only list certain products as vegan in their FAQ, and others still have silk and honey. Thank you so much for the work you do!

      Hmmm…. I was under the impression that all of their products are now vegan. Would you happen to know the names of the products that still list honey and/or silk in the ingredients? I’ll have to look into this some more!
