The Vegan and Cruelty-Free Guide to Skincare - Moisturizers
Shopping for skincare is overwhelming enough, as it is with so many products competing for our hard-earned cash, but when you want to ensure that the face moisturizer you are buying is not just cruelty-free but vegan too, you may end up leaving a store with a headache.
So, what exactly does vegan and cruelty-free even mean?
Skincare products that are not produced from an animal or an animal byproduct. This means that it does not contain any traditional animal ingredients such as beeswax, honey, lanolin, keratin, gelatin, albumen, carmine, cholesterol and so on.
Cruelty-Free on the other hand simply means that the product or its ingredients have not been tested on animals at all during its life-cycle by manufacturer, producer or any third party.
Vegan Skincare is very much in hype these days because not only is vegan skincare plant-based and good for you but it is rich in vitamins and filled with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients and since vegan products contain fewer ingredients you can be almost certain as to what you are putting on your skin. Keep in mind, a brand can be vegan but not cruelty-free or vice versa. Luckily, we are both!
