The Truth Behind “May Contain” Ingredient Lists

The Truth Behind ''May Contain'' Ingredient Lists

One of the most common questions that I get is asking what the “May Contain” Ingredient Lists on products mean. I get at least a handful of emails each week from confused readers who don’t understand why a product that claims to be vegan has “may contain carmine” or “may contain beeswax” listed on the packaging. Does this mean the product isn’t vegan? Does it contain carmine, beeswax, or other ingredients?

This is something I have talked to many brands about. In this post, I share the three common reasons why brands put “May Contain” Ingredient Lists on their packaging.

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Swatches & Try-On

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Swatches & Try On

When ColourPop launched their Ultra Satin Lips I was intrigued. I have a lot of their Ultra Matte Lip shades already and was very intrigued about how this formula would compare. Once finding out that all current shades are vegan, I picked up nine different shades. I tried to pick a variety of colors to see how they applied and how they wear.

In this video, you will see swatches and a try-on all nine shades. I also share my thoughts on the formula.

As you guys know, I have been on the hunt for amazing cruelty-free and vegan sunscreen options. COOLA is a brand that I have used before and it was perfect timing when they sent me a package of goodies that included the COOLA Mineral Face Unscented Matte Tint SPF 30. This sunscreen not only has a matte finish, but also works as a BB Cream. It sounded a bit too good to be true, so I’ve been putting it to the test to see how it performs.

One of the great perks of Logical Harmony is constantly being introduced to a lot of independent cruelty-free brands that you don’t find at mainstream stores. Recently Epiphany Soapworks was added to the Cruelty-Free Brand List here on Logical Harmony.
