What's the difference between Vegan & Cruelty-free makeup?
Hello everyone! Today we will be talking about the difference between vegan cosmetics and cruelty-free makeup.
What is vegan cosmetics? Vegan cosmetics means that the ingredients that make the product is absent of any animal ingredients.
So, what is cruelty free cosmetics? Cruelty-free, on the other hand, means that the products were not tested on animals.
Vegan items can have been tested on animals just as cruelty-free products carry ingredients that are derived from animals.
So if you are changing your lifestyle into a more vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, be sure to make background information checks on companies to ensure that they line up with your values.
What are the common animal-derived ingredients found in cosmetics? The list below shows you some of them but not limited to:
🐏 lanolin (wool grease)
🦈 squalene (shark liver oil)
🐞 carmine (crushed-up beetles)
🐄 gelatin (cow or pig bones, tendons or ligaments)
🐄 allantoin (cow urine)
🐳 ambergris (whale vomit)
🐑 placenta (sheep organs)
While these ingredients are harmless, they're no better for you. The idea of smearing on animal parts on your body - from shampoo, shower gel, or even cosmetics - can be deterrent in the long run.
