Are cosmetics really natural and vegan?
Along with the constantly growing trend for environmental awareness, everyday life in the spirit of being eco has become not only a fashion, but above all, a lifestyle. This awareness helps you make the right choices both for the sake of your own health and the nature that surrounds you. It means the responsibility for the present and future. A particularly strong ecological trend can be noticed in the beauty industry, where manufacturers offer an expanding range of natural products.
Unfortunately, for a vast number of cosmetics and care products available on the market, the labels on their packaging, such as „natural”, „vegan”, „bio” or „eco” often remain an empty statement, as the very products have, in fact, very little to do with what they are aspiring to be. Manufacturers often overuse these fashionable marketing words in order to increase sales. This phenomenon is called “greenwashing” or “ecofake”. The deceptive practices are possible due to the lack of legal regulations regarding eco-labeling.
However, there is a way to recognize whether the composition of the cosmetic or a care product is truly natural or vegan. There are certificates granted by reliable international organizations which deal with confirming the naturalness or veganity of products, independently of the brand owner.
