An Organic Vegan Haircare Product will only contain ingredients which have not been genetically modified, chemically-engineered or derived from living things and their habitats. On the product packaging it will have an organic and vegan certification.
If the certification label is not from a third-party organization then do not use it. Instead, ask yourself this question “Why hasn’t this product been evaluated by a third-party as organic or vegan?”.
Cruelty-Free Vegan Haircare products have not been tested on living things, this includes the individual ingredients as well. You will not feel any guilt for purchasing a Cruelty-Free product. So your Cruelty-Free Vegan Haircare product should have not have anything bad happening to living things or the environment.
Ethically sourced haircare products contain ingredients which are sourced from suppliers with “sustainable business practices”. These sustainable business practices include suitable wages, ingredients are sources responsibly without harming the environment.
So now you know the ins and outs of ethically sourced vegan haircare and why it matters to choose a product with an ‘ethically sourced’ label.
