Anastasia Beverly Hills’ products are manufactured in: “Our products are manufactured in different countries, including USA, Germany, Italy, or PRC. Since we have many products in various shades, please let us know specifically which items you are interested in and we will do our best to give you the needed details.”

Anastasia Beverly Hill does not claim to be a sustainable company.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any available information on ABH’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.

Is Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Mica Ethically-Sourced? I’ve emailed ABH 4 times in the past year to ask if their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor but they never responded to any of my emails.

I hope this article helped you to understand Anastasia Beverly Hill’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!

  1. I have found less vegan marked products. For example, their Moonchild kit is not marked vegan. Have they changed the formula?

    1. I noticed they’ve removed the VEGAN label on some of their products. I sent them an email 2 weeks ago addressing this and asked if they recently changed their formula and they responded saying:

      “We apologize for any confusion. Since we have many products in various shades, please let us know specifically which items you are interested in and we will do our best to give you the needed details.”

      My guess is that they haven’t changed their formulas and maybe they’re just updating their website and in doing so, they’ve accidentally removed the VEGAN label off from some of their shades and products. But I plan to follow-up with these changes closely! =)

  2. Hi , I noticed u wrote in Anastasia soft glam eye shadow pallete , there is carmine and beeswax. Are these the only animal ingredients , or us their fats from animals like cows and pigs? Plz reply soon. Thanks

    1. Hi Aim,
      Sorry but I’m not entirely sure. I think it’s best to ask ABH about the source of each of their ingredients in this palette. They’ll give you a better answer than I can.

      Carmine and beeswax were the only animal-derived ingredients that stood out to me but there are some other ingredients in their list that could potentially be derived from an animal source or synthetically like glycerin and lecithin.

      Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful in answering your question!

  3. Je fais des recherches pour être sûre que tous mes cosmétiques soient cruelty free et en cherchant sur le site d’Anastasia Beverly Hills je n’ai pas trouvé de mentions légales à ce propos. Peut-être que c’est moi qui est mal cherché, et si c’est le cas j’aimerais savoir où je peux trouver ces mentions.
