It is all about going natural and organic these days. From food to makeup, women are paying special attention to the products that they buy. Mineral makeup took the beauty industry by storm a few years ago, but right now, it is all about vegan makeup – eco-trendy vegan cosmetics. Vegan makeup address the two major concerns that women face in regard with the products that they use to beautify themselves. The first concern is whether the product that they buy is cruelty-free? This means no animal testing and a complete absence of ingredients obtained from animals in any form used in the product. The second major concern is in regard with the chemicals used in the product. With women being more aware than ever before of the ill effects of using chemically potent products on their skin, there has been an increase in demand for vegan products.
Vegan lipsticks are fabulous because not only are they so much more safer for your lips, but you also don’t have to feel guilty as they are 100% animal cruelty-free. So how exactly do you go about finding out if a product is vegan? Below are some vegan tips for beginners.
1. Check The Ingredients List
The easiest way to find out if a lipstick is vegan is to check the ingredient list. More often than not, if a product is vegan then you will find it mentioned somewhere in the packaging for sure.
2. Check The Website
In some instances, a product may not carry a complete ingredient list. In such cases, you can try checking out the brand’s website to determine whether they are vegan.
3. Stick With Reputed Vegan Makeup Brands
Your best bet to ensure that your lipstick is vegan is to opt for a reputed vegan makeup brand. This way you don’t have to wonder or have any doubts as to whether your product is 100% vegan.
4. Write To The Company
If all else fails, as a last resort, you can send an Email to the brand asking if a particular product of theirs is vegan or asking for a complete list of ingredients so that you can determine whether it is vegan or not yourself.
