Cruelty-free simply means that a product and its ingredients were not tested on animals and consists of more natural ingredients. Vegan generally implies that a product doesn’t contain any animal by-products.
If a product claims to be cruelty-free, but not vegan it means that the product was not tested on animals, but may contain animal by-products. Products that claim to be vegan, but not cruelty-free means that the product does not contain any animal by-products, but the product may have been tested on animals.
Since essence and CATRICE have been on the market, we have never carried out any testing on animals – not for our products nor for the ingredients, yet we still have innovative and trendy products! By choosing cruelty-free products we are preventing the death and suffering of all animals around the world.
As individuals we don’t realise how many animals are harmed, if not even killed in order to produce cosmetic products. Just as we love our household pets and cannot imagine them being harmed or taken away from us, we need to have the same mindset when thinking about every other precious animal on our planet.
As humans get their feelings hurt so do animals, but unfortunately, they are unable to voice it. Therefore, it is incredibly important to choose a cosmetic brand that is cruelty-free and if possible, even vegan
Products that are not tested on animals usually don’t consist of harmful chemicals such as, parabens, sulphates, synthetic dyes, micro-plastics, palm oil etc. Products that are free from these chemicals are much better for your skin.
Cruelty-free and vegan products are not only beneficial to one’s skin, but also absolutely vital for our environment as without even knowing it we are in fact reducing our carbon footprint.
By purchasing cruelty-free products we are agreeing that animal testing is completely wrong, which is absolutely correct. The products we buy are a reflection of our values, if you truly care for your fur babies then living a life that reflects these values is of outmost importance. After all, true beauty shines from within.
Many cruelty-free brands are also budget friendly. essence and CATRICE consist of high-quality products at an affordable rate. Makeup for pros, prices for everyone.
essence and CATRICE are continuously moving towards using more natural and sustainable ingredients and materials. Using materials that are environmentally friendly means that you’re making a better choice for the health of our planet.
