some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.
.
How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.
