When it comes to vegan friendly makeup, you might not know where to start. There are so many products that claim to be vegan, but what does that really mean? We’re here to help! This article will discuss 3 things you need to know when shopping for vegan friendly makeup.
1) Animal products can be found in ingredients like beeswax and lanolin- these are usually easy enough to spot on the back of the packaging. The ingredients list will also often include “beeswax,” “lanolin,” or “animal-derived.” If any of these words pop up on your cosmetic label, put it back on the shelf!
2) You should always read ingredient lists carefully before buying vegan products. Just because a vegan product is on your list of makeup doesn’t mean it won’t have other ingredients that you might not approve of.
3) Makeup with vegan stickers on the box typically has no animal ingredients, but this doesn’t make them cruelty-free. Cruelty-free makeup must not be tested on animals in any way (not even by a third party), and vegan products can still contain components that were derived from animals.
In conclusion, vegan makeup can be a great choice for those who want to avoid animal ingredients and products that were tested on animals. If you’re vegan, it’s best to try out vegan-friendly brands before others because veganism is not as simple as avoiding meat or dairy; there are other aspects of the lifestyle that may affect your product choices.
