Why You Should Choose Vegan And Cruelty Free Beauty | DB Cosmetics NZ | 01

There’s no doubt that you’ve heard of Vegan beauty products. After all, they’re reinventing the beauty industry day by day. Veganism is a lifestyle that eliminates the consumption and use of products and food including ingredients derived from animals.

For those who adopt this lifestyle, it is important that they can trust that their selected products are guaranteed Vegan and Cruelty Free.

Today's consumers are simply more aware and empowered when it comes to what they put in and on their bodies, creating the need for more transparency of the ingredients that are being used within our beauty products. Whether you have decided to adopt a complete Vegan approach or not, recent times have shown people opting for products that include less harsh ingredients and are Cruelty-Free, as they are considered more ethical.

What Is Vegan Beauty?

Similar to Vegan food, Vegan Beauty products have been formulated with zero animal-based ingredients… What’s not to love? Additionally, when products have been labelled as ‘Cruelty Free’ consumers can expect that they haven’t been tested on animals. Common ingredients that we can expect vegan beauty products to not include involve Honey, Beeswax, Albumen, Gelatin, Carmin etc. Ultimately consumers can expect Vegan products to eliminate ingredients that have been derived from animals.

With the need for more transparent beauty products on the rise, consumers are best to opt for products that have been specifically certified as ‘Vegan’ and ‘Cruelty Free’ as this expresses that their practises and ingredients align with the legal requirements.

How To Choose/ Check If Your Makeup Is Cruelty Free

When selecting your Cruelty Free makeup products it is essential to look for the Cruelty Free certification on each product. The certified bunny symbol has been designed to be easily recognisable and effective in distinguishing which products are cruelty free. You can find this symbol on the packaging of your products!

Commonly, brands will use terms such as ‘clean’ ingredients, however it is important to note that this doesn’t include the exclusion of animal-derived ingredients and cruelty free practises. Many brands will consider their products as ‘clean’ by the inclusion of certain ingredients, however it’s essential to look for the certification that guarantees Cruelty Free.
