Vegan Beauty | Dianne Caine Australia

A vegan beauty product is one that does not contain animal ingredients and has not been tested on animals.

Common ingredients of concern found in beauty products include: lanolin, collagen, honey, beeswax, gelatin, squalene, uric acid, stearic acid, carmine and keratin, many of which can be found in a range of different cosmetics.

Similar to eating vegan, choosing to use vegan beauty products means that you can feel good knowing that you are having a positive impact on animal welfare, your personal health and taking care of the environment. 

How Can I Tell if a Product is Vegan?

Beauty products may claim to be vegan, however, you should always check if they have an official certification.

The most established, widely recognised and respected certification around the world is that of the Vegan Society, founded in the United Kingdom in 1944.

The Vegan Society created and defined the word ‘vegan’ in 1944, and since 1990 have provided certifications to businesses that produce quality, ethical products that meet the authentic standard for products free from animal ingredients and animal testing.
