A Guide to Vegan Beauty Buzzwords

If you are a beauty guru, you probably have already heard of clean, vegan and cruelty-free beauty. But if you are new to this, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a guide to the vegan beauty buzzwords you need to know. 




Cruelty-free means the skincare products have not been tested on animals throughout the development process. In the animal testing process, rabbits and mice are subjected to cruel trials. But cruelty-free and vegan are not necessarily the same thing, a product can be cruelty-free but contains animal ingredients. 


Vegan Beauty

Vegan skincare doesn’t contain traces of animal products. These animal derived substances can include ingredients such as beeswax, lanolin, and glycerine.


Clean Beauty

Clean beauty revolves around creating safe, organic, and natural products that do not contain chemicals and parabens etc.
