Vegan-certified and Cruelty Free Skin Care

Yes..still hard to believe in this day that companies still test on animals with the chemicals found in their skin care products and claim to be cruelty free. What does this really prove? Nothing…some companies claim to be cruelty free as they don’t test their final product on animals but instead all the individual ingredients that go into their final product were tested on animals…either by them or they contract out the testing to be done by someone else.

A company to be able to make the claim ‘Never Tested on Animals’ starts from the first ingredient to the last ingredient not tested on animals. Substantiation and safety testing should be performed at independent laboratories on voluntary human panels. And being part of PETA’s list of Caring Companies is a plus.

So we now see how some companies claim they are vegan-certified even though they didn’t take the long route but instead took the shortcut to a faster, cheaper product.

Certified vegan products are formulated without animal products or by-products and made with plants and herbs together with science and technology to offer superior benefits. Products with a certified-vegan logo should be administered by The Vegan Awareness Foundation (official name of Vegan Action), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about veganism and to assist vegan-friendly businesses.

What should we be thinking about…skin care companies that have vegan-certified cruelty free well as chemical free and botanical based… so they are formulated without animal products, animal by-products, gluten, parabens, formaldehyde-donating preservatives, petroleum based Benzene, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Phthalates and Toluene, and PABA.
