Ethical Elephant – Cruelty-Free and Vegan Cosmetics Certifications & Claims Explained.

Cruelty-Free and Vegan Cosmetics Certifications & Claims Explained

WAV Comment – we are reproducing the introduction and link to the site in order that you can review and make your own choices.  There is a lot of information, complete with logos to watch out for when you purchase or decide not to purchase.

Intro copied from Ethical Elephant site –  :

Did you know there’s a difference between cosmetics labeled Cruelty-Free vs. Vegan? And Vegetarian vs. Vegan? And that not all Certified Cruelty-Free Bunny Logos have the same standards and criteria?

In this post, I’m sharing some of the most common cruelty-free and vegan claims, labels, and logos that we often see on cosmetics and household cleaning products. As well as, providing an overview of which ones are regulated, the organizations issuing these certifications, their requirements, and the cost associated with licensing their logos.

And because no certification or standard is perfect or all-inclusive, I’ll also be sharing some things to look out for. That way, we can set some realistic expectations when we shop for cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics.

By the end of this post, you’ll have a better understanding of what each cruelty-free and vegan claim actually means, and hopefully, it’ll help you make better and informed consumer choices.
