Vegan and Cruelty Free. Do These Mean The Same Thing?

      When you think of veganism, your brain instinctively goes to a well known modern diet. Vegan skincare is a new movement to the skincare industry and I am here to tell you all about it. When researching vegan skincare products you may come across cruelty free. Be cautious, even though these terms are used interchangeably, they do NOT mean the same thing. Cruelty free relates to the production of the product where vegan products are constructed from the content and sourcing. 

      In simpler terms cruelty free products means no ingredients in the product during the formulation process was not tested on animals. Vegan products are defined as no ingredients in the formula that do not derive from animals. In the skincare industry, there are some products that are considered a grey area but may be  excluded from vegan skincare products. Such as, Beeswax, Carmine, Honey, Shellac, and Glycerine. 

      Vegan products are very beneficial to the skin, especially long term. Vegan skincare products entrust in ingredients derived exclusively from plants or flora. Veganism may still  be a type of modern diet but the truth is, for centuries people have been using nature for their skin care. The most common are, Lavender, Aloe Vera, Ginger, Chamomile, Mint, and Rose.  

     Here at THERAPRINA, we believe that products should be both cruelty free and vegan. Each product is carefully formulated with sustainable raw materials.
