House of Lashes is Cruelty-Free
House of Lashes 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.
By our standards, we would consider House of Lashes to be Cruelty-Free.
Below is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on House of Lashes’ website about its animal testing policy:
Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.
At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, or any third parties.
Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.
House of Lashes is Not 100% Vegan
‘Vegan’ in cosmetics can refer to an entire brand that is 100% Vegan or a specific product is vegan.
In the case of House of Lashes, all of their lash products are free from animal hair and animal-derived ingredients. However, some of their lash styles are made with human hair, therefore they do not claim to be a 100% vegan brand.
The following is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on House of Lashes’ website about its vegan claims:
Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.
Some lash products are made with mink hair or animal-based adhesives.
There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.
So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.
Where are House of Lashes’ products made?
House of Lashes states on its website,
“Yes, our lashes are produced in Indonesian. Our manufacture meets all of the necessary work compliance requirements. Our manufactures provide fair wages, safe work environments, lunch and various break time, time-off and maternity leave for its employees.
Our synthetic fibers are made in Korea and the lash is handmade in Indonesia. Our human hairs are sourced ethically within Indonesia.”
