More and more cosmetic products are using cruelty-free and vegan labels on their products, but what do those labels mean? Of course, there is an overlap between the signs of existence, but it is worth convincing them separately.


Products bearing this mark do not contain any animal ingredients or derivatives. In the first category, substances such as gelatin, cholesterol, or collagen are excluded. For the second category, ingredients such as honey, beeswax, or milk.


These products are not tested on animals at any stage of product development. In testing, cells are used in laboratories to monitor the reaction of cosmetic materials.


In addition, legislation was introduced in the European Union in 2009 to the effect that products sold or manufactured in the EU or their ingredients may not be tested on animals. Thus, even if the company does not necessarily have a cruelty-free certificate if the product is made in the European Union, it is a cruelty-free product.
