VEGAN AND CRUELTY FREE MAKE UP BRANDS AVAILABLE IN SINGAPORE!

Vegan makeup? Cruelty-free makeup? Aren't they the same thing? No. Often you might see a product branded as one, but not the other.


Ethical Elephant is a great website to help navigate these murky waters but they helpfully break it down as:


The label “cruelty-free” means = this product and its ingredients were not tested on animals.


The label “vegan” means = this product does not contain animal products or ingredients.


It can be weird to think 'but what ANIMAL products are going into my make up?!'


Well, common ones are Guanine (fish scales often found in mascaras, nail polishes and lipsticks), Tallow (animal fat used in eye make up, foundstions and other things), Gelatin (gelatin is the boiled skin, tendons, ligaments of animals and is used in cream-based cosmetics - you've also probably heard of it in things like jelly sweets), and Carmine - a red colourant that comes from crushing bugs, is used in a lot of lipsticks (and other thigns).


After delving into an internet black hole about Carmine which we'll never recover from, we wanted to know who are the brands who are doing BOTH vegan AND cruelty free make up products?


Below is a list of make-up brands who's makeup lines include some products that are both vegan and cruelty-free.


100% of the brands below are Cruelty Free and the first 3 have 100% of their product lines as both vegan and CF. The others in the list have very decent ranges of vegan products within their brand, so this is still epic.
