WHAT IT IS: No an­i­mal-de­rived in­gre­di­ents and test­ing on any of them. With the in­crease in aware­ness of an­i­mal cru­elty spurring this health trend, con­sumers are ques­tion­ing the ethics of their cos­met­ics and sk­in­care brands. Card-car­ry­ing ve­g­ans such as Natalie Port­man and Scar­lett Jo­hans­son fill their Stella McCart­ney faux python totes with brands that share the same ideas per­tain­ing the non-use of an­i­mals. For ex­am­ple, Ur­ban De­cay shuns an­i­mal test­ing and doesn’t use beeswax, honey, an­i­mal elastin, or the red dye (carmine), which is de­rived from crushed in­sects.

PRO TIP: “Prod­ucts should be man­u­fac­tured in an en­tirely nat­u­ral and eth­i­cal way with full con­sid­er­a­tion for our health, well­be­ing, and also of an­i­mals and our en­vi­ron­ment,” says Rose Brown, founder of PHB Eth­i­cal Beauty. When shop­ping for ve­gan prod­ucts, watch out for the of­fi­cial cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.
