What Are Vegan Cosmetics?

Vegan cosmetics are cosmetic products that do not use animals at any point in their production. One of the most important points is that they not be tested on animals. Another is that they not use any animal products during manufacturing. That means no beeswax in salves or lip balms, because it is produced by bees. It also means no lanolin in lotions, because it is harvested off wool from sheep. Locating vegan cosmetics can be difficult, because they either do not list all ingredients and testing methods, or are just not available. Determining if a cosmetic product is vegan usually requires careful reading and a call to the manufacturer.
