Makeup & Beauty Supplies.

And that commitment lingers from the ideation stages of our products right to when it’s held in your hand.

But, it’s important to take a deeper look into why vegan cosmetics make a difference. Along with that, you may be curious to dive into paraben-free and cruelty-free brands too.

Read on, as we cover these for your reading pleasure.


Why Vegan Cosmetics Make a Difference?

Who can blame you for not knowing exactly what is vegan and what is not? Are you left pondering the question “Why vegan?”

Congratulations, you are in the right place as we break down the info so you can be better informed and make the best decision.

By now you know that being vegan is not a lifestyle. And it’s definitely not just a slogan to us. 

It’s actually a mission to stop mistreating animals. Including in the production and consumption of all products such as cosmetics.

But it’s not only for vegans. Treating everyone on our planet with care should be a priority.  Therefore, you become part of the solution when you buy vegan cosmetics. Making a difference in a big way. 


Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

Let’s take a closer look at the cruelty-free side of the cosmetic world.

Generally, you must look out for specific aspects of cruelty-free brands. This means that the final product, as well as its ingredients, were not tested on animals in any way.

A common move is to first test products on animals so that it can be safe for the customer. Yet, this is becoming less common due to the added awareness. 

So keep in mind that cruelty-free cosmetics may contain non-vegan ingredients. This includes collagen, carmine, and beeswax. Just because it states cruelty-free does not make it vegan. 


Paraben-Free Cosmetics

Another common word you likely hear about cosmetics is paraben-free. And yes it feels great knowing that your cosmetics are free of paraben but what is a paraben, and why are parabens bad?

The use of Parabens first gained traction in the ’50s to preserve food. Soon enough it played a big part in cosmetics too as the world salivated over a wider range of makeup.

The common parabens are butylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben. That’s a mouthful!  The great news is that you can quickly find them on the packaging as they will contain the word paraben.

Parabens impact the way your hormones work. And there have been studies linking parabens to breast cancer and reproductive issues.

But as with all things, they don't only impact you but also the environment such as marine mammals.

The products we use often get released into the environment as a secondary by-product and were not involved with animal testing with cosmetics.


Benefits of Vegan, Cruelty-Free and Paraben-Free Cosmetics

You're protected from harmful toxins when you use vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free cosmetics.

This means that you do not get exposed to life-endangering elements. These elements impact your future health including the health of your loved ones. 

Yet, that’s the start of the benefits. By using a cruelty-free brand you are helping to make the environment a friendlier and safer place for everyone.

This has positive effects on both you, the environment and future generations to come.

Altogether, you will be improving the world you live in. And also you can have flawless beauty whilst doing it.


How To Check If Your Cosmetics are Vegan, Paraben Free, and Cruelty-Free

Most companies can stick on a label and claim that it is vegan and cruelty-free. Thus, it's always good to check.

You can do this by checking for associations that certify this such as PETA and the Vegan Society.

You should also check if the company tested on animals or not. And make sure you buy from a company that doesn’t test on animals.

It's always important to go through the ingredients. This may take some work, but it will pay off.

When in doubt email the cruelty-free brand or check their social media.

Products have special ingredient codes that can be hard to actually understand. You need to research common ingredients and confirm the ingredients before buying them.

In this case, try to remember the most common animal ingredients and avoid them.


Choosing the Best Cosmetics

As an ordinary consumer, you would be hard-pressed to understand what the labels say. They can be so obtuse and jargon fueled.

It can be a time-consuming process. An alternative is to find a cruelty free brand you trust and stick with them. You will know this by looking at the various cruelty-free brands in detail and making the most informed decision.

That’s the reason here at Viceco Beauty, we keep our promise to always be transparent about our products. We want you to stay informed about the ingredients we use. 

We remain committed to providing vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free cosmetics.
