Vegan Vs Cruelty Free

Are Vegan products necessarily Cruelty Free?

No but they  probably should be…..

Products can be labelled Vegan and still be tested on animals, which I guess kinda goes against the whole point of being Vegan.

Recently some make-up companies have responded to the rising Vegan movement by labelling their products Vegan when they don’t contain any animal derived ingredients yet they will still allow for their products to be tested on when sold to mainland China.

In china it is mandatory for cosmetics to be tested on animals.

Are Cruelty Free products always Vegan?

Cruelty free labelling just means that a product has not been tested on animals.

Here are some examples of labels that you can trust.

It is worth noting that not all cruelty free / vegan brands use these labels and the reason for this is because there is application process and a charge to be registered with these organisations.

Lush have created their own label

Other companies such as Bayliss and Harding have created their own Cruelty Free labels.

Be aware though because some unofficial cruelty free labels are misleading, for example Batiste have their own Cruelty Free logo and they do sell to mainland China, allowing for their products to be tested on animals. Therefore they are not Cruelty Free!
