Vegan Skincare Ingredients

PETA offers two stamps: 'cruelty-free' and 'vegan'.
What is the difference between 'cruelty-free' and 'vegan'?
Vegan and Cruelty Free Ingredients
Skincare ingredients and products that was not tested on animals are labeled "cruelty-free".
Lanolin is a wax taken from the wool of sheep. Lanolin is a wonderful natural moisturizer for skin, nails and hair. If lanolin is in a skincare product, the product is cruelty-free, but it is not vegan-friendly.
Beeswax is produced by bees. It is cruelty-free, but not vegan.
Milk used in skincare is cruelty-free, but not vegan.
Hyaluronic acid initially was derived only by extraction from rooster combs. Now it is created by bacterial fermentation. It is cruelty-free and vegan.
Vegan-friendly skincare uses only not animal-derived ingredients. Vegan skincare uses ingredients that are made from plants and minerals, as well as safe synthetic ingredients.


Aqua - drop of life

Deionized water is a great solvent and carrier in skin care products. It is a liquid substance that is capable of dissolving other ingredients that would otherwise be difficult to incorporate into the desired cosmetic. And it is a carrier to deliver active ingredients to where they will be most effective and beneficial to skin.

Carbomer* is vegan, man-made ingredient. Most things that go into your cosmetics and toiletries were originally intended for another purpose altogether and got pressed into service by formulators.  But carbomer was always intended for skin products. It stabilizes the formulation and gives it texture. It is thickening agents that help control the viscosity, it helps distribute and suspend insoluble solids into liquid, and prevent the oil and liquid parts of a solution from separating. It has the ability to absorb and retain water, and can swell up to 1000 times their original volume when dispersed in water.
