Consumables of all types make many different claims. Some of them are genuine and some of them are clever marketing tactics that play to a particular ethical belief and hook well-meaning buyers in. When people talk about beauty products, in particular, they may be mindful of some chemical or trending fad no-no ingredient. However, My Absolute Beauty is proud that they offer vegan-friendly products where other companies cannot.
But, what does “vegan” beauty products even mean?
Vegan beauty products are those that are free from animal products. Animal products that are commonly used in beauty products include honey, beeswax, lanolin, collagen, albumen, carmine, cholesterol, and gelatin.
At My Absolute Beauty, we are completely transparent and list all of our product ingredients. We are proud to be able to confidently display all of our ingredients on your computer screen, not hiding anything. Our vegan products are free of any animal product. You can confidently tell your vegan clients that they can partake.
Okay, so what about “Cruelty-free?”
There are no regulations for the term “vegan”, so companies can use it to imply that the product is animal-free. It is important to understand that vegan means that the beauty product does not contain any animal products. However, those animal product-free beauty products can still be tested on animals and brandish a “vegan” label.
For a product to have the label “cruelty-free,” it means that the final product was not tested on animals. Because this term is also not regulated, it is common to see labels that read “cruelty-free” or to admit that only animal testing that is required by law was performed. It is important to look into the company and the process to ensure the accuracy of the claims.
What does this all mean?
So, it stands to reason that a product can be vegan and not cruelty-free or cruelty-free and not vegan. For a product that has no animal involvement, whatsoever, you’ll need to find products labeled as both.
If a company is willing to produce both vegan and non-vegan options and both cruelty-free and non-cruelty-free options, you can be willing to bet that they do not take their animal rights very seriously. To find the best quality, truly animal-friendly beauty products, trust the company who will strip down and be vulnerable at the risk of nearly giving away trade secrets, to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that their product in no way impacts animals.
At My Absolute Beauty, we respect our animal friends and value the ability to offer vegan beauty products that are also cruelty-free. Our entire product line bears the legitimate labels of both, to include Belmacil and Everlasting Brows. Shop our entire product collection online today!
