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.
Is Huda Beauty Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Huda Beauty has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
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.

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%.
Response to Mica Sourcing: When I emailed Huda Beauty to ask whether the Mica they use in their cruelty-free makeup products is ethically sourced without the use of child labour, they responded stating:
“We are very aware of the global concerns and impact of using Mica from socially and economically challenged regions where there is a risk of unsafe working conditions. As a company we are committed to ensuring transparency throughout our supply chain, and supportive of local organizations who are working to improve the living and working conditions in the region. Where possible we use U.S. based, responsibly sourced Mica. “
I hope this article helped you to understand Huda Beauty’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
