Vegans avoid exploiting animals for any purpose, with compassion being a key reason many choose a vegan lifestyle. Accessories, clothing, bathroom items… animal products are found in more places than you might expect. Fortunately nowadays there are affordable and easily-sourced alternatives to just about everything.
Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
Something can’t be “cruelty free” if it has animal ingredients in it!
When it comes to cosmetics, plant-based and mineral-based ingredients are superior alternatives to those in animal-infused cosmetics.
Plant & mineral based ingredients have beneficial properties that can heal, soothe and be gentle on the skin. Many plants have been used for centuries to heal ailments and skin issues & treat skin conditions.
Many times companies will label their product “cruelty free” but may still use ingredients such as bees wax, Carmine, Collagen, Guanine, Lanolin, Squalane which are all animal by-products.
Cruelty free does not mean a cosmetic is vegan. Cruelty free means that a company did not test their product or ingredients on animals during any phase of development. Although the term “cruelty-free” does prohibit the use of animal testing, it still allows the company to use animal ingredients, which are far from cruelty-free.
