What is a vegan perfume?
For a perfume to be certified as vegan, it must be completely free from any animal products or ingredients.
Is there a difference between vegan and cruelty-free perfumes?
In short – yes. If a perfume is labelled vegan, you can rest assured that no animal products or ingredients have been included in the formula. However, just because a perfume is certified vegan doesn't always mean that it hasn't been tested on animals, in which case you'd want to make sure that your fragrances are also cruelty-free as well as vegan.
