What Do Vegan Cosmetics Mean?
Today the trend of cosmetics is changing, labels are becoming more and more popular, such as slow cosmetics, homemade products, organic products, etc. Vegan is one criteria among all. While the term Vegan is simply fashionable for some and is a real lifestyle for others, what hides behind this trend?
Why talk about Vegan Cosmetics?
The first thing to consider about Vegan cosmetics is that they completely ban all animal matter from their compositions and ingredients, whatever it may be!
For example: animal fats, but also beeswax, honey or milk etc.
Therefore, a Vegan cosmetic is logically Cruelty free, even if today this term could no more be used because it is forbidden to test cosmetic products on animals. Indeed, since 2013, there is a law within the European Union that prohibits testing on animals during the entire manufacturing process. United States are among other countries which are phasing-out animal testing.
On the other hand a 100% Vegan product certainly condemns any cruelty and testing on animals as well as any ingredient that would be of animal origin.
Be careful not to confuse organic cosmetics with Vegan cosmetics. Organic cosmetics may well contain elements of biological origin such as beeswax or honey… but this type of ingredient is derived from animal exploitation and is not part of the Vegan ethics…
