What’s the Difference Between Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

What's the Difference Between Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, “What’s the Difference Between Cruelty-Free and Vegan?”

A lot of people have different definitions of what cruelty-free and vegan mean, and a different understanding of the difference between cruelty-free and vegan. It can be especially difficult when you first go cruelty-free. Personal definitions, however, do not always match up with terms that brands often use.

I get a lot of emails and comments from people who are upset and confused because they were told all cruelty-free brands are also vegan, or because they didn’t realize that a brand can say they are vegan but still test on animals.

As a consumer, it’s really important to understand how brands use these terms so that you can make the best purchasing decision to align with what you want to support.

In this post, I explain the difference between cruelty-free and vegan. I also explain and how they may be used by brands. It’s important to understand how brands use them because it can help you navigate the cruelty-free beauty industry better.

Did China End Animal Testing?

Did China End Animal Testing?
In the last couple of days the cruelty-free community has been full of news about China supposedly ending required animal testing. Headlines were posted and rumors went flying. Did China end animal testing? Has China their laws to allow cosmetic brands sold in the country to avoid animal testing? Should we now consider cosmetic brands selling in China to be cruelty-free? To say people were confused would be an understatement. Many cruelty-free consumers began to celebrate what they believed to be a massive change in Chinese animal testing policy.

While there have been steps taken in China that are progress, most of what was being circulated was not accurate and very misleading.

While China has announced plans to reduce post-market animal testing of cosmetics, headlines claiming that China has ended animal testing are inaccurate and misleading. As a result of headlines claiming that China has ended required animal testing, I received a lot of messages from people telling me how excited they were and how they had gone out to purchase products from MAC, L’Oreal, NARS, and other brands known for testing on animals as they now believed those brands were cruelty-free. China has not banned animal testing. China has not ended animal testing.

So what exactly is going on with China? There’s still a lot of confusion and a lot of inaccurate information being spread. Headlines may have been corrected, but many are still sharing what they believe to be the truth based on the inaccurate headlines published by other sources earlier this week.

Read on to learn more and get all the details.
