HASK cruelty free haircare have a mission to create high quality hair care that’s carefully sourced, tested for efficacy and formulated without the bad stuff (including: Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Gluten and Aluminum Starch) – you can find a more extensive list of HASK’s ‘ingredient blacklist’ here. They also have a page where you can browse the ingredients they do use, and their sources. They have an impressive range that aims to tackle a whole host of problems with their cruelty free ingredients.
Is HASK Haircare Cruelty Free?
HASK Haircare are certified by the Leaping Bunny Program in America, not in the UK. As far as I’m aware this means they do have to adhere to the same standards on animal testing, but they don’t appear on the UK’s Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny list.
They proudly display the Leaping Bunny logo on their website:
HASK Beauty is proud to announce that we are Leaping Bunny certified. This means that all HASK Beauty products, ingredients and component parts (including raw materials) comply with the requirement of the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals as established by the Leaping Bunny organization. No product has been tested or re-tested on animals to assess safety, efficacy, or environmental effects of Cosmetics and/or Household Products.
HASK is owned by a parent company, Inspired Beauty Brands, which to the best of my knowledge does not own any animal testing brands.
Are HASK Haircare Products Vegan?
HASK Haircare use a lot of natural products and it looks like their only animal derived ingredients are honey and keratin from wool. This means all of their products are likely to be cruelty free and vegetarian, but not all of them will be vegan. I have emailed them asking them to provide a list of their vegan products, but always check your ingredients!
Are HASK a Sustainable Brand?
At the moment, HASK Haircare haven’t said much about their efforts towards sustainability, but I’d be interested to know if they’re making any progress behind the scenes.
