These days the conversation about climate change is a constant concern. A recurring topic on HairBlues.me has been cruelty-free and Vegan products. This month we continue that conversation as we explore what the differences are between cruelty-free, vegan cosmetics, and why some companies use “green” packaging.
The November Wellness Connections podcast explains the difference among these products, and packaging.
I am always excited to share with you holiday ideas for make-up and gift giving, especially when I think those ideas can be useful and fun. As you know, I have been having a conversation with you about cruelty-free products. I think it is a way for us to get in touch with a future that is coming for some of us very soon. Millennials are way ahead on this issue. Some consider themselves Vegan! I am sure you are wondering what is the difference. Well, I checked.
Vegan products do not contain any animal ingredients or animal derived ingredients (such as, honey, beeswax). Often vegan products are free from animal testing too. However, the ‘vegan’ term is not regulated. And, a vegan product is not guaranteed to be cruelty-free. Also, a cruelty-free product may not be ‘vegan’. Are you following me? ♥ One way to be somewhat more confident about what is vegan and what is cruelty-free is to buy your makeup from cruelty-free companies with vegan items. Those companies will often tell you what the ingredients are for your specific needs. source: https://logicalharmony
Below are companies I found that I think you will enjoy looking up and buying ‘transition‘ cosmetic gifts for yourself and for those on your gift list. Some of the items can be found at Target, for example. 🙂
