WHAT DO YOUR LA­BELS MEAN?

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Look Book -

NAT­U­RAL

This term is not reg­u­lated, which means even if a prod­uct is 80 per cent syn­thetic, with 20 per cent of their in­gre­di­ents de­rived from plants, brands are able to de­clare the prod­uct as nat­u­ral.

OR­GANIC

Or­ganic prod­ucts usu­ally have a seal printed on their pack­ag­ing to cer­tify that its in­gre­di­ents are or­ganic, but the per­cent­age of or­ganic in­gre­di­ents re­quired to be cer­ti­fied varies from coun­try to coun­try.

CRU­ELTYˆFREE

In­di­cated by a bunny logo on the pack­ag­ing, “cru­elty-free” prod­ucts mean they haven’t been tested on an­i­mals. How­ever, all beauty prod­ucts made in China are re­quired by law to con­duct an­i­mal test­ing, which means a lot of brands still prac­tise it.

VE­GAN

Prod­ucts la­belled “ve­gan” do not con­tain any an­i­mal byprod­ucts. How­ever, th­ese prod­ucts may con­tain syn­thetic al­ter­na­tives in place of an­i­mal byprod­ucts.
