Hourglass has confirmed that it is truly cruelty-free. They don't test finished products or ingredients on animals, and neither do their suppliers or any third-parties. They also don't sell their products where animal testing is required by law.
“We believe beauty and integrity should be synonymous, which is why we are as uncompromising with our products’ performance as we are with our commitment to animals.
Hourglass is a cruelty free brand and has pledged to become completely vegan in 2020. We donate 1% of all profits from hourglasscosmetics.com to our partner, the Nonhuman Rights Project, the only civil rights organization working to secure fundamental rights for animals.
We will continue working towards change because we believe in seeing eye to eye with animals. Like us, they are living beings that experience fear and sadness, pain and loneliness. We will stay true to our mission until they are protected in the beauty industry and beyond.”
Hourglass is owned by Unilever which is not a cruelty-free brand. If you prefer avoiding brands owned by a company that tests on animals, we recommend avoiding Hourglass.

Hourglass is cruelty-free but not 100% vegan, meaning that some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients.
We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their full animal testing policy. If brands answer all our questions and confirm that no animal testing is happening at any point during production and beyond, they're added to our cruelty-free list. All brands we add have confirmed the information above.
Their vegan products are listed on their website. Visit this link to look at the entire selection.
