What Makes A Product Vegan?
Vegan beauty products are produced without harm to animals, they don’t contain any animal ingredients, animal by-products or animal-derived products. Vegan products are also never tested on animals so you will be guaranteed that you are buying 100% cruelty free. Without animal ingredients, vegan products are also proven to be better suited for sensitive and condition-prone skin. Animal ingredients can be harsh and clog pores, so plant based products are a great alternative if you find that you have sensitivity to your beauty products. Also plant derived ingredients contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than animal derived ingredients making them the healthier option.
Cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world. Products tested on animals are not considered cruelty-free because the animal is forced to undergo something that is likely to cause them pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm. Sadly there are lots of big corporations who claim that they do not do animal testing but under their policy say unless required by law. If a product is sold in mainland China it is required by law for their to be third party testing, companies who are truly against these practices will not sell their product in China. Every year over 500,00 animals are used for test in the beauty industry, to test just one ingredient 1,400 animals can be used, rabbits are frequently used because they are mild-tempered and easy to handle, confine, and breed. Rabbits are used for eye irritantcy test, in which cosmetics and other substances are continuously dripped into the animal's eyes, causing severe pain and suffering for the rabbit. These tests continue even though there is more modern, humane and effective tests available. We are strongly against animal testing so absolutely everything sold at Vero & Co is 100% cruelty free.
