So, we’ve all heard of Veganuary right? If not, it’s an annual challenge run by a UK non-profit organisation that promotes and educates about veganism by encouraging people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January.
It then encourages people to try and continue this on throughout the rest of the year. However, it isn’t just animal food products that you can cut from your lifestyle for Veganuary, it is beauty products too.
A lot of products continue to test on animals and are not cruelty free. Making the shift to vegan products can make a huge difference to testing, the environment with eco-friendly packaging, and it’s better for sensitive skin.
How can I tell if a product is vegan?
The fastest and easiest way to see if a product is vegan and cruelty-free is by looking for the certified cruelty-free bunny logo on the packaging.
Pictures below are some official versus unofficial logos so you’re aware of what and what not to look for:
