How To Check That You’re Using Vegan Makeup?
There are so many makeup companies out there and it may be hard to tell which one is vegan and which is not. For some tips on judging this read the points listed below.
1. Always read the ingredients
This should definitely be priority on your list when looking for makeup as it will give you a clear idea of what kind of makeup you are using. Makeup companies like Eco Mineral USA will sell vegan blush that only has plant based and mineral ingredients in them. You should avoid any makeup with ingredients like beeswax, carmine, collagen, elastin and allantoin as they are all products, or by products, of animals.
2. Check the company
Vegan makeup companies aim to be transparent and will work hard to erase any doubt from your mind of their authenticity. They will do this by making the ingredient list easily available for you to read. Their mission statement will be clear, aiming to outline their aims and desire to avoid any animal based products.
If you still have any doubts then speak to one of their representatives, they will be more than happy to help you.
3. Is it cruelty free or vegan?
When checking your makeup brand make sure that their products are not just cruelty free because this is not the same as being vegan. Cruelty free means that the products were not tested on animals, while vegan means that the makeup is free of any animal products or by products. Naturally a vegan product can be cruelty free but cruelty free does not automatically mean that it is vegan.
When choosing your makeup, try to keep your eyes open and ask around before buying it to avoid any problems.
