Haus Labs is a makeup line created by Lady Gaga, it’s the first major beauty line to launch exclusively on Amazon. But is Haus Labs cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Haus Labs Cruelty-Free?
Haus Labs is Cruelty-free! None of Haus Labs’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Haus Labs Animal Testing Policy
Haus Labs has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of Haus Labs’ official animal testing statement:
In addition, when I emailed Haus Labs to ask for more information about their animal testing policy and they’ve confirmed the following:
- Haus Labs does not test their products on animals
- Haus Labs does not their ingredients on animals
- Haus Labs does not ask any third parties to test their products or ingredients on animals on their behalf
- Haus Labs’ raw material suppliers do not test on animals; they verify this through documentation
- Haus Labs products are not sold in any brick and mortar stores, either in the US or Internationally, and are not required by law to test any ingredients on animals due to this.
- Haus Labs products are only sold online and then shipped to customers in China and therefore they are not required to test on animals as per China’s animal testing laws.
Is Haus Labs Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Haus Labs has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“We will be shipping our products to several other countries besides the US, both through hauslabs.com and Amazon Global. While China is one of those countries, because HAUS LABORATORIES is producing and selling cosmetics to Chinese residents via foreign e-commerce websites (Amazon and Haus Labs), there is no requirement of animal testing.”
Cosmetics that are only sold online and then shipped directly to customers in China are not required to
So, as long as Haus Labs does not sell their products in-stores in mainland China and only stick with selling them online, then they are not required to test on animals per China’s animal testing laws.

Is Haus Labs Vegan?
All of Haus Labs’ products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
