As I am now pregnant I am on the lookout for cruelty-free mummy and baby products. I had a few in mind while I was living in Malta. However, once I moved here most of the brands I knew about in Malta, cannot be found in Germany. So I started my search again. Of all the brands uncertified cruelty-free that I emailed, only one brand came back to me. This brand is Hipp. Hipp is probably more known for baby food. However, this post is more about their Hipp Babysanft and Hipp Mamasanft ranges which are their baby and mummy care product ranges. So let’s find out Hipp’s cruelty-free status.
Is Hipp certified cruelty-free?
No, Hipp is not certified cruelty-free.
Does Hipp test on animals?
No, Hipp does not test on animals.
“No animal testing is carried out nor commissioned by HiPP or our suppliers in the development and production of our skincare products.”
Do any of Hipp suppliers, manufacturers or any third parties they work with, test on animals?
No, none of Hipp’s third parties tests on animals.
Is Hipp owned by a certified cruelty-free parent?
Hipp owns itself. So no, Hipp is not owned by a certified cruelty-free parent.
Does Hipp sell cosmetics in China or any other country where animal testing is required?
No Hipp does not sell cosmetics in China.
“As a general rule, no animal testing is carried out for our HiPP baby care products and we do not sell our HiPP baby care products to countries where animal testing is required by law (for example. Mainland China).”
What is Hipp’s cruelty-free status?
Hipp is a brand that does not support animal testing. I can’t call it a cruelty-free brand as it seems that in Europe only the ones that are certified by PETA or Leaping Bunny gets that label. However, it’s a brand to support.
Is Hipp vegan?
No answer. However, it seems that they mark their vegan cosmetics on the packaging.
