The labeling of beauty products

Today, a large amount of consumers are becoming more and more aware of what is in the products they buy and how they are tested by manufacturers. Unfortunately many products that are labeled "cruelty-free" are tested on animals. Promotion
This is due to the fact that there is some ambiguity regarding the rules of labeling beauty products. In fact, some products use terms such as "cruelty free" as a promotional tool. Tests are carried on on animals
Phrases such natural and hypo-allergenic imply to the consumer that the ingredients in the product have not been tested on animals. The sad reality is that most cosmetic ingredients have been tested on animals at some point or another.
What to look for?
What this means for consumers is "that products that sport terms that allude to the fact that the company does not test on animals" can be misleading. Buyers should make sure that they look for terms such as "this company does not test on animals" or "not tested on animals".
