Haus Laboratories is in the grey area.
This means that it's currently unclear whether or not the brand is cruelty-free, since they haven't provided enough information. Some brands that fall under this category refuse to share their complete animal testing policy or answer questions about their cruelty-free status.
Haus Laboratories has not provided sufficient information about their animal testing policy. They haven’t addressed questions regarding:
- Whether or not their suppliers test on animals
- Whether or not they test on animals where required by law, although they claim not to sell in stores in China
- Whether or not they allow third parties to test on animals on their behalf
For these reasons, the brand is currently listed as a “grey area” brand, and we can’t list it as a cruelty-free brand.
Here’s their full animal testing policy:
“We’re so grateful for your interest in HAUS LABORATORIES, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve created for you!
We are proud to say that we at HAUS love animals, and as such, never test our products OR ingredients on them. Additionally, all our products are 100% vegan, so get excited to start creating!
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.”
