So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

    I’m interested in buying the Drybar Prep Rally and it has biotin, which in most cases is derived from animal but can be from other sources. Can you verify please? Thank you.

      Hey Star,

      Drybar got back to me and stated, “Prep Rally is one of our vegan hair care products.” I’m not exactly sure what non-animal source the biotin they used in the Prep Rally is derived from (either synthetic or plant-based) as Drybar didn’t clarify. But that’s all I got from them!

      Hi Cindy! I just checked the list that Drybar originally sent me and they do have Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray labeled as being vegan. I also checked the ingredients found on their website, and I can’t seem to find PEG-75 Lanolin listed as an ingredient for this hairspray. Is it listed on the actual bottle? Maybe they recently reformulated it without Lanolin? Hmm..
