The Vegan lifestyle is not just about the food we eat, there’s lots of areas it covers including beauty.
In beauty some products may be cruelty free but not vegan. For a product to be vegan it must not contain any animal ingredients. The most common ingredients to look out for are; lanolin (wool grease), squalene (shark liver oil), carmine (crushed-up beetles), gelatin (cow or pig bones, tendons or ligaments) and ambergris (whale vomit).
