A warning about “cruelty free” icons from PETA or Leaping Bunny.

These symbols indicate animal testing was not a part of the making of a product but they do not mean a product is vegan! While their approval ought to include not adding ingredients from an animals’ bodies, there is no changing their criteria for what they deem “cruelty free”. Thus, the ethical consumer must dig deeper for answers…

To make matters worse, “certified vegan” logos from Vegan Society or Vegan Action indicate whether individual products are vegan but this does not apply to the entire brand.

So if products are cruelty free they might not be vegan. If a products are vegan they might not be cruelty free.

If this insight incites feelings of exasperation, you are not alone…

So how can ethical consumers determine whether a brand is fully vegan or not?
