Is Tree Hut Cruelty-Free in 2022? SHM Answers!

Sharing is caring!

Tree Hut is an up-and-coming brand that produces beauty and skincare products.

They started out as a small, entrepreneurial business in Texas and they have become popular enough to expand internationally and to be one of the most well-known, sought-after skincare brands in the entirety of the United States.

They have become popular due to marketing themselves as a cruelty-free, all-natural brand that uses high-quality ingredients such as certified organic shea butter and Polynesia coconut shells, but is tree hut cruelty-free?

The tree hut does market itself as cruelty-free and they have earned the distinction “beauty without bunnies” of PETA, which is only given to brands that do not use or support animal cruelty.

They do not test their finished products on animals, nor their ingredients.

They have also made a statement regarding animal cruelty, saying that they fully condemn it and make sure their suppliers do not test on animals either.

Furthermore, they do not allow third-parties to test on animals on their behalf, and they do not sell, or manufacture their products, in countries where animal testing is required by law (such as Mainland China., for example). 


All in all, the Tree Hut is, indeed, 100% cruelty-free. The brand has quite a few vegan cosmetics to choose from, and you can find some of their products on Amazon, Sephora, and similar retailers.

They do not test on animals, they make sure their manufacturers and suppliers don’t either and they refuse to sell, or produce their products, in Mainland China.

Unlike other brands that have received the distinction “beauty without bunnies” yet are not fully cruelty-free, Tree Hut is as safe as can be when it comes to this issue.

We congratulate them on their strong stance against animal cruelty and animal testing and we hope more and more brands follow suit and become truly, 100% animal testing-free in the coming years.
