Is Hynt Beauty Vegan?
Is Hynt Beauty Owned By A Parent Company That Tests On Animals?
No, Hynt Beauty is not owned by a parent company that tests on animals.
Is Hynt Beauty Sold in Mainland China?
No, Hynt Beauty is not sold in mainland China.
Animal Testing is required by law in China for all foreign cosmetics companies. All American and European cosmetic brands that are sold in China must undergo animal testing.
Any brand that chooses to sell its products in China cannot be considered cruelty-free.
Even products that can bypass mandatory tests may still be pulled from the shelves by Chinese authorities to be tested on animals.

Email to the Company
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions.
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
This is how Hynt Beauty responded:
- All of our products are vegan except for our NOCTURNE Mascara.
- None of our products are tested on animals and never will.
- We have both LB and PETA certs.
- None of our suppliers to our knowledge test on animals on our behalf. We have done our diligence, asking questions regarding the supply chain but we of course can never guarantee that. We know of one ingredient that was tested back in the 1980s. However, there has been no current testing to our knowledge.
- We do not sell in China, nor have any plans to do so.
- We are not owned by a parent company.
