BH Cosmetics is an affordable makeup brand but is BH Cosmetics cruelty-free or do they test on animals?

Is BH Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?

BH Cosmetics is cruelty-free! BH Cosmetics does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.

BH Cosmetics Animal Testing Policy

BH Cosmetics is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, an internationally recognized cruelty-free certification program. The Leaping Bunny has a rigorous set of standards that each brand must meet in order to be accredited.

In addition to having their animal testing policy verified by a third party like the Leaping Bunny, BH Cosmetics also states on their website that they “do not test any products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf.”

Email Response from BH Cosmetics

In addition, I also reached out to BH Cosmetics to verify their current cruelty-free status and they kindly responded with the following:

Thank you for your interest in BH Cosmetics. The raw materials we use to manufacture our products are directly sourced from Europe, Japan and the United States. The Manufacturing (the mixing of each product batch, the pressing of each eye shadow color, the filling of each eye shadow color into the palette) is all done in China. We are a value-driven brand and because we are able to manufacture our products in China we are able to offer quality pigments and formulas at an attractive price.

Our longstanding commitment to end animal testing has not changed: We do not test our products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf. We are proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic products where safety can be proven by means other than animal testing.

We also require all of our manufacturers to sign a legal and binding document that they do not and will not test our products or raw materials on animals.

BH Cosmetics stated in their email response that their manufacturing takes place in China, but I want to make an important note here that cosmetics made in China are not required by law to be tested on animals. It’s only an issue when cosmetic products are sold in China in which the Chinese local laws require all imported cosmetics are to be tested on animals.

Therefore, just as long as BH Cosmetics are not sold in China… they remain to be cruelty-free! And we are happy to include BH Cosmetics to our list of cruelty-free brands.

Is BH Cosmetics Vegan?

Not all of BH Cosmetics are considered to be vegan as they use some animal-derived ingredients in some of their makeup products and shades of color cosmetics. They also use animal hair in some of their makeup brushes. But BH Cosmetics does offer some vegan makeup products.

Please reference the list below of BH Cosmetics’ vegan products.

    Thank you so much for explaining this. I was quite confused by “Made in China” and cruelty free at the same time,

    Question: if you are ethical and cruelty-free, where and how do you obtain animal hair products? Are the companies obtaining the animal hair cruelty free??

      I am wondering the same thing. If anything regarding an animal part is used in their products then not seeing how this company is cruelty free.
