Cruelty-Free Beauty: Vegan Beauty Products
Cruelty-free makeup has garnered a lot of attention lately. Without any of the harmful chemicals tested on animals first, beauty brands are looking at ways to safely test makeup using other methods, passing on ethically sound products to their customers. Here at Beauty Base, we want to highlight our current vegan beauty brands — which include makeup and skincare brands — to open up a cruelty-free world of products you’re bound to want to add to your beauty product collection.
What is vegan beauty?
Quite simply, a vegan beauty product does not contain any animal-derived ingredients, nor is it tested on animals before human consumption. Plenty of makeup and skincare products include animal ingredients such as: honey, beeswax, lanolin, and carmine, to name a few. Those who are vegetarians, vegans, or simply those who wish to use ethically sourced products are the main target group for vegan beauty and cruelty-free makeup. Not only are cruelty-free products not tested on animals, they are also of very high quality! There’s no compromise here, which is why ethical beauty is at the forefront of the beauty industry right now.
From high-end premium beauty products to vegan beauty products, you’d be hard pressed to notice the difference on a finished make up look. That’s because a lot of hard work and research goes into finding the right ingredients for cruelty-free makeup items, so we can enjoy our ethically sound foundations, lipsticks and eyeshadows. All of the glamour with none of the guilt!
