What’s the difference between vegan, natural, and organic?
Because the label “Natural” isn’t regulated at all, it can be confusing to tell if your product is really out here being a whole fraud or not. That’s why you need to check the ingredients! Remember that they’re listed from highest percentage to lowest, so aim to pick a product where synthetic ingredients are mainly at the bottom of the list, if included at all. Also, can you even pronounce the ingredients? If you can pronounce most or all, then you’re good. But if you have to consult google, you might want to steer clear.
If a product is listed as organic, that means the ingredients are organically farmed (and the FDA regulates this one!). BUT, make sure the product has the USDA seal of approval on it so you know it’s real.
You know the one’s with the little bunnies on the bottom—those are cruelty free. In other words, no animals were harmed in the making of this product. Some products are cruelty free and may not have a bunny label, so you might want to google the company to double check.
This simply means none of the ingredients are animal based products. But hold up sis! That doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t synthetic though. I mean after all, Oreos are vegan too!
