What Makes Body Products Vegan?

What Makes Body Products Vegan?

When you hear the word “vegan,” you most likely think of food. People who are vegan do not eat anything containing animal products. That means no meat, no honey, no eggs, no dairy, etc. But there are other areas in life where a vegan mindset can be adopted. For example, many vegans also choose not to wear animal products like leather and even seek out cosmetic products that are vegan. That's right; even body products can be made vegan. 

Many traditional body products contain some commonly used animal products like beeswax, honey, collagen, lanolin, or keratin. All of these ingredients come from animals and are, therefore, not vegan. Vegan body products use ingredients that are not derived from animals. 

However, just because a product is made with vegan ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean it is “all-natural” or “cruelty-free.” Today, we’ll cover everything you need to know about vegan body products, so hop on board. 

What Is A Vegan Body Product?

By definition, vegan body products avoid using ingredients or manufacturing processes that involve any animal byproducts. Vegan body products even avoid animal byproducts that don’t harm the animal. For example, vegan products exclude common ingredients like beeswax and honey, even though the bees don’t have to be killed to obtain the ingredients. 

This can be confusing if you are not a vegan yourself. Basically, if it involves an animal in any way, it is not vegan. 

There are many plant-based and artificial ingredients that are considered vegan, which can be used to similar, if not identical, effects. However, when it comes to vegan body products, not all products are created equal. In fact, a product can even be considered vegan but not cruelty-free. 

Vegan Vs. Cruelty Free

So, you’re seeking out vegan body products because you love animals and want to make more ethical decisions when shopping. You should know that there are several different labels used for products that will help you to narrow down which products to choose. One key distinction is the difference between vegan and cruelty-free. 

Cruelty-free products are specifically products that are not tested on animals. Vegan products are products that don’t use animal ingredients. So, if you are looking to buy body products that are more animal friendly, then you want to make sure that the product is both vegan and cruelty-free. 

If a product is only labeled as vegan and not cruelty-free, then that means it has vegan ingredients but could still have been tested on animals. If you are in it for your furry friends, this might feel a little counterintuitive. Opt for products that are both vegan and cruelty-free so you can rest assured that your conscience will be clear. 

Are Vegan Products All Natural?

When talking about cosmetics and body products, the term all-natural gets thrown around a lot. It is important to note that just because a product is vegan doesn’t necessarily mean that it is created with all-natural ingredients, either. 

Nowadays, people are a lot more conscious about the ingredients in their cosmetic products. This is smart because the regulations on what is allowed in cosmetic products are very lenient. Oftentimes products can contain sneaky harmful ingredients. It is a healthy practice to be skeptical about ingredients in your body products. 

That said, products that are all-natural are generally thought to be created with natural, plant-based ingredients that are found in nature. However, the term “natural” isn’t necessarily regulated in any way. Natural products can, in fact, still include up to 30% synthetic ingredients. 

Vegan products are not necessarily all-natural. The term vegan is simply used to describe ingredients that are not derived from animals. It doesn’t address what they are derived from. 

Still, you will commonly find that vegan products are, in fact, also considered all-natural and cruelty-free. But it is important to know that all of these labels are individual of one another.
