1 EXHIBIT 1.01 Conflict Minerals Report of Helen of Troy Limited In accord with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 This is the Conflict Minerals Report of Helen of Troy Limited (“Helen of Troy”, the “Company”) for calendar year 2023 (excepting conflict minerals that, prior to January 31, 2013, were located outside of the supply chain) in accord with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Rule 13p-1”). 1. Introduction Helen of Troy is a leading global consumer products company offering creative solutions for our customers through a diversified portfolio of well-recognized and widely trusted brands. The Company has built leading market positions through new product innovation, product quality and competitive pricing. Helen of Troy was incorporated as Helen of Troy Corporation in Texas in 1968 and reorganized as Helen of Troy Limited in Bermuda in 1994. Helen of Troy has two business segments: Home & Outdoor and Beauty & Wellness. The Home & Outdoor segment offers a broad range of outstanding world-class brands that help consumers enjoy everyday living inside their homes and outdoors. Our innovative products for home activities include food preparation and storage, cooking, cleaning, organization, and beverage service. Our outdoor performance range, on-the-go food storage, and beverageware includes lifestyle hydration products, coolers and food storage solutions, backpacks, and travel gear. Sales for this global segment are primarily to online and brick & mortar retailers and through our direct-to-consumer channel. The Beauty & Wellness segment provides consumers with a broad range of outstanding world-class brands for beauty and wellness. In Beauty, we deliver innovation through products such as hair styling appliances, grooming tools, and liquid and aerosol personal care products that help consumers look and feel more beautiful. In Wellness, we are there when you need us most with highly regarded humidifiers, thermometers, water and air purifiers, heaters, and fans. Sales for this global segment are primarily to online and brick & mortar retailers, distributors, and through our direct-to-consumer channel. Helen of Troy purchases its products from unaffiliated manufacturers, most of which are located in China, Mexico, Vietnam and the United States. Helen of Troy contracts to have products manufactured that may contain gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten (“3TG”). As these materials may be necessary to Helen of Troy’s products, the Company has embarked on a process to trace the origin of these metals to determine whether its sourcing practices support conflict or human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) and the surrounding area (the “Covered Countries”). The intent of this Conflict Minerals Report (“CMR”) is to describe this due diligence process.

2 2. Product Description Helen of Troy contracts to have products manufactured that may contain 3TG, such as home, outdoor, wellness, and beauty consumer products. Helen of Troy purchases finished product and is therefore several tiers removed from the mining operations. The Company does not purchase any materials directly from smelters or refiners, so Helen of Troy must rely on its suppliers to provide reliable and accurate information about 3TG. Helen of Troy’s suppliers were requested to use the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) to identify gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten smelters or refiners (“SORs”) and associated countries of origin. Verified SORs were matched against available lists of processors that have been certified by internationally- recognized industry validation schemes, such as the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP), the London Bullion Market Association Good Delivery Program (“LBMA”), and the Responsible Jewelry Council Chain-of-Custody Certification (“RJC”). Conflict free certification information is current as of April 23, 2024. 3. Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry Description Helen of Troy obtained the aforementioned product information by implementing a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”). Helen of Troy assembled an internal team, led by its Vice President, Global ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), comprised of representatives from Helen of Troy’s finance, legal and supply chain departments. Helen of Troy engaged Source Intelligence (“SI”), a third-party information management service provider, to gather information from suppliers and establish a system of controls and transparency over its supply chain. This is the ninth consecutive year the Company worked with SI. Helen of Troy’s Tier 1 suppliers were engaged by SI to collect information regarding the presence and sourcing of 3TG used in the products supplied to them. Information was collected and stored using an online platform provided by SI. Supplier Engagement As in previous years, the RCOI began with an introduction email from Helen of Troy to suppliers describing its conflict minerals reporting requirements. Following that introduction email, a subsequent email was sent to suppliers containing a registration and survey request link to the online data collection platform. In an effort to increase awareness of the Company’s Conflict Minerals Compliance Program (CMCP), supporting regulation, and frequently asked questions (FAQs) concerning 3TG mineral tracing, Helen of Troy’s suppliers were given access to an online Supplier Resource Center. The Supplier Resource Center provided educational information to facilitate a deeper understanding of conflict

3 minerals and to inform suppliers as to why information was being requested. There were also opportunities to participate in webinars providing information on the Conflict Minerals Rule. Subsequent engagement followed these steps: • Following the initial introductions to the program and information request, up to three reminder emails were sent to each non-responsive supplier requesting survey completion. • Suppliers who remained non-responsive were contacted by email and offered assistance. This assistance included, but was not limited to, further information about the Conflict Minerals Compliance Program, an explanation of why the information was being collected, a review of how the information would be used, and clarification regarding how the information could be provided. • If, after these efforts, a given supplier still did not register with the system or provide the information requested, an escalation process was initiated. The escalation process consisted of direct outreach by Helen of Troy. Specifically, Helen of Troy contacted these suppliers by email to request their participation in the program. SI followed up with an email in a timely manner. Information Requested Suppliers were asked to provide information regarding the sourcing of their materials with the ultimate goal of identifying the 3TG SORs and associated mine countries of origin. Suppliers who had already performed a RCOI through the use of the CMRT were asked to upload this document into the online data collection platform or to provide this information in the online survey version. Where a supplier was unable to provide a CMRT, SI requested information on its suppliers of products or components which may require 3TG for their production or functionality. These Tier 2 suppliers, and subsequent tiers of suppliers as needed, were then engaged following the contact procedures explained above. When contact information was provided, Tier 2 and beyond suppliers were contacted via email in order to build a chain-of-custody back to the 3TG SOR. Every effort was made to address and meet the concerns of suppliers regarding their need to maintain the confidentiality of their data. In order to address this concern, SI executed non-disclosure agreements with Helen of Troy suppliers when requested. Helen of Troy chose to give their suppliers the ability to share information at a level with which they were most comfortable, i.e. company, product or user-defined, but the declaration scope had to be specified. Suppliers were requested to provide an electronic signature before submitting their data to Helen of Troy to verify that all answers submitted were accurate to the best of the supplier’s knowledge, but the suppliers were not required to provide an electronic signature to submit their data.

4 Quality Assurance Supplier responses were evaluated for plausibility, consistency, and gaps. If any of the following “quality control” (QC) flags were raised, suppliers were automatically contacted by the SI platform on a bi-weekly basis up to 3 contacts. • One or more smelter or refiners (SORs) were listed for an unused metal; • SOR information was not provided for a used metal, or SOR information provided was not a verified metal processor; • Supplier answered yes to sourcing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries (“DRC”), but none of the SORs listed are known to source from the region; • Supplier indicated that they have not received conflict minerals data for each metal from all relevant suppliers; • Supplier indicated they have not identified all of the SORs used for the products included in the declaration scope; • Supplier indicated they have not provided all applicable SOR information received; and • Supplier indicated 100% of the 3TG for products covered by the declaration originates from scrap/recycled sources, but one or more SORs listed are not known to be exclusive recyclers. 4. RCOI Results Helen of Troy’s RCOI process revealed the following: • A total of 147 Tier 1 suppliers were identified by Helen of Troy as potentially in-scope for conflict mineral reporting purposes and all were contacted as part of the RCOI process. The survey response rate among these suppliers was 93%. The decrease in response rate was due to the inclusion of suppliers from recent acquisitions. For some of these suppliers, this was the first time they were requested to provide such information. We anticipate response rates will improve in the future as these suppliers are further engaged in this process. • Out of these responding suppliers, 22% indicated conflict minerals were necessary to the functionality or production of the products they supply to Helen of Troy. • The responding suppliers using conflict minerals provided names of 260 verified SORs. • Of the 260 verified SORs, 86.2% are currently certified, of those that are not yet certified, 2.7% are actively moving through the certification process or are planning to do so within two years. Around 82.3% of verified SORs had no indication of sourcing from the DRC/Covered Countries. Of those SORs that show indication of sourcing from the DRC/Covered Countries, all but 1 are currently certified or actively moving through the certification process. Related to the 1 SOR, we required the relevant supplier to cease any more purchases from these SORs for our products.

13 5. Due Diligence Process Helen of Troy’s due diligence process was designed to conform to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and accompanying Supplements1. It is important to note that the OECD Guidance was written for both upstream2 and downstream3 companies in the supply chain. As Helen of Troy is a downstream company in the supply chain, due diligence practices were tailored accordingly. • Step 1- Establish strong company management systems Helen of Troy’s conflict minerals policy is publicly available at www.helenoftroy.com. The Company utilizes an internal team, led by the Vice President, Global ESG, comprised of representatives from the finance, legal and supply chain departments to communicate and manage compliance initiatives. Team members work with the suppliers on a continual basis to maintain an open dialog and transparency in the procurement process. Findings are reported to senior management, as well as to the internal audit department. The Company’s internal team efforts are supplemented with a third-party service provider’s extensive knowledge and experience, as well as training seminars on conflict minerals. • Step 2- Identify and assess risk in the supply chain The Company continues to refine its list of product categories and suppliers that may fall within the scope of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Expectations with regard to supplier performance, transparency and sourcing are clearly communicated through supplier training. Quality assessments with suppliers are being expanded to encompass compliance initiatives. Suppliers are being encouraged to implement conflict mineral policies with their vendors. • Step 3- Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks Helen of Troy continues to make improvements on risk management. As RCOI are conducted and additional information becomes available regarding components and materials being used in the Company’s products, potential risks can be tracked and mitigated. The online platform maintained by SI allows Helen of Troy to 1 OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, Supplement on Tin, Tantalum and Tungsten and Supplement on Gold, 2013; http://www.oecd.org/daf/inv/mne/GuidanceEdition2.pdf. 2 Upstream companies refer to those between the mine and SORs. As such, the companies typically include miners, local traders, or exporters from the country of mineral origin, international concentrate traders and SORs. 3 Downstream companies refer to those entities between the SORs and the retailer. As such, the companies typically include metal traders and exchanges, component manufacturers, product manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers and retailers.

14 access and analyze supplier responses as well as SOR information. Any suppliers found to be sourcing from SORs that support conflict in the DRC region will be required to explore alternative sources. • Step 4- Carry out independent third-party audit of supply chain due diligence at identified points in the supply chain As part of Helen of Troy’s due diligence, and in conjunction with SI, the Company relies upon the following internationally accepted audit standards to determine which SORs are considered DRC Conflict Free: RMAP, LBMA and RJC.
