What is cruelty-free?

Cruelty-free means a product hasn’t been tested on animals. This includes everything from the beginning stages up to the final product. It also means a brand is not selling its products in a country where they are required to be tested, by law.

I bought a product that says it’s cruelty-free or has a cruelty-free symbol on it. That means it is cruelty-free, right?

The short answer to this is NO. Sadly, there is no legal definition of the word “cruelty-free” much like the term “natural” which brands also like to put on their products. Many companies who are not cruelty-free, whether they test on animals themselves or ask others to do it on their behalf, claim to be cruelty-free. This is where cruelty-free can be tricky and cause a lot of division within the cruelty-free community. People have different definitions of the term cruelty-free. For me, cruelty-free means there is no animal testing involved in any part of the process of producing and selling a product.
