Vegan Cosmetics #2: Complete Guide

Last week we released an article about everything you needed to know about vegan cosmetics – from what they are to celebrities who support the lifestyle. Now you’ve become such an expert on cruelty-free and animal-origin free beauty products, it’s time to add even more fun to the subject with a complete guide of vegan brands and products so you can run to the closest e-commerce you find.
 
But first, we should confidence you a secret: there’s a huge chance you’ve already got vegan cosmetics on your dressing table. Do you want to make sure there’s no animal input? Check it out.
 
 
Here’s a worldwide known dry shampoos: the Batiste ones. They became a fever for saving a legion of women when our hair isn’t the cleanest it could be – and time is definitely not helping when it comes to wash it on a daily basis. Did you know they are vegans? And you can confirm that by reading their labels. Usually as the final information, vegan and cruelty-free stamps take place close to other ones, as flammable warnings.
 
 
However, sometimes it might be a little bit harder to find all those information, as happened with our example below.
 
 
There’s no stamp of direct information to clean up your doubts on its label. It’s time to be informed and use internet on your favor. If you find yourself with a huge probability of being vegan, but you cannot find any information to ensure it, follow our steps:
 
1. Check the components. If you read any strange or suspicious word, run to the closest internet device and google it. 
2. Not sure if the component is synthetic or animal originated yet? We suggest you to visit the brand’s website. When it comes to environmental responsibility, it’s quite possible the confirmation will be easy to find. 
3. Still wondering if the shampoo stays on your shopping basket? Try sending an e-mail to the company and all your questions will be solved - vegan bloggers do it all the time, as we could verify.
