Why You Should Care About Vegan Cosmetics and Beauty Products
What are Vegan Certified Cosmetics™?
To receive our Vegan Certified certification, cosmetics must be free from animal-derived ingredients, such as beeswax, lanolin, and carmine. These ingredients are often used in cosmetics and are derived from animals, causing harm and suffering to the animals involved in their production. Vegan Certified cosmetics are also free from any animal testing, ensuring that no animals are harmed in the making of these products.
