Is Huda Beauty Cruelty-free or Vegan?

Huda Beauty is a cosmetic brand created by beauty guru, Youtuber, and influencer, Huda Kattan. Huda Beauty has become one of the most popular and fastest-growing makeup brands but is Huda Beauty cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Huda Beauty Cruelty-free?

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

Huda Beauty’s Animal Testing Statement

In an email response, Huda Beauty confirmed to me that they do not test their ingredients or products on animals; they do not ask or hire any third parties to test their products or ingredients on animals on their behalf; their ingredient suppliers do not test on animals and they have manufacturers certifications to confirm this; they do not sell their products in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing by law.

Huda Beauty is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.

You can find Huda Beauty products at Sephora and Cult Beauty.

Is Huda Beauty Vegan?

Not all of Huda Beauty’s products are vegan as some of their products contain carmine, beeswax, or other animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Huda Beauty does have some vegan options.

Please reference below for a list of Huda Beauty vegan products.

If you do not see a product on either of our Huda Beauty vegan or non-vegan list, it’s because I haven’t confirmed whether said products are vegan or not with Huda Beauty yet. I’ll try my best to keep this list as updated as possible.


Is Huda Beauty Ethical?

Based in: US

Products Manufactured in: Around the world, check packaging labels to see where their products are made. I was told their Obsessions Palettes are made in China and their Foundation is made in Italy.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any public information on Huda Beauty’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.

Giving Back Initiatives: Huda Katten recently announced, on Instagram, a pledge to donate $100,000 to makeup artists financially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ingredients and Formulations Claims: No product claims on Huda Beauty cosmetics and products.

Wishful Skincare claims they use responsibly and ethically sourced ingredients where possible, and they comply with Sephora’s Clean Program, which means their products are formulated without: Parabens, Triclosan, Triclocarban, SLS, SLES, Phthalates, Formaldehydes, Retinyl Palmitate, Aluminum Salts, Benzophenone, Resorcinol, Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Coal Tar, Mineral Oil, Fragrance over 1%.
