Did you know you can find The Vegan Trademark on vegan beauty products as well as food? We find out more...
The Vegan Society currently has over 20,000 personal care and cosmetics products registered with the Vegan Trademark! This isn’t just because people love beauty products.
Labelling on cosmetics can be confusing with definitions of terms like ‘cruelty-free’ and ‘vegan’ not always being fully understood by consumers and businesses alike. Pair that with different labels symbolising each, sometimes meaning different things, and it can get quite confusing.
In the beauty industry, the term ‘cruelty-free’, for example, refers to products that have not been tested on animals, or products that are not sold in territories like Mainland China where post-market animal testing is required by law. Cruelty-free does not, however, cover whether the ingredients in a product are derived from animals, so they may not be vegan.
The Vegan Trademark helps to provide clarification that the products we certify are free of all animal use – that means no animal ingredients and no animal testing. Everything you need to reassure you, represented in one label.
So, whether it’s your daily dental care or vegan make-up, our trusted mark is here to make shopping for authentic vegan products easier.
