Hourglass Cosmetics is a luxury makeup line that can be found in high-end department stores around the world. But is Hourglass a cruelty-free? Do they sell their products in China or test on animals? These are the questions that will be answered in this post.

Does Hourglass Cosmetics Test on Animals?
To find out if Hourglass tests on animals I looked in the frequently asked questions part of their website. Below is an excerpt from that section:
“We are a PETA certified, conscientious brand that is proud to offer cruelty-free products. Hourglass Cosmetics does not test on animals during product development or production. In addition, we do not provide authorization to any third parties to perform animal testing on our products.”
Is Hourglass Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?
So is Hourglass cruelty-free? Yes, they are a cruelty-free makeup brand and have been added to the list of cruelty-free brands. However, it’s important to note that in 2017 Hourglass was acquired by Unilever, a company that tests on animals.
Many people in the cruelty-free community refuse to use brands owned by a non-cruelty-free parent company. However, I personally use and support all brands that are cruelty-free regardless of their parent companies testing policies. Ultimately that choice is up to you.
