Cruelty-Free Vaseline Alternatives

Consumers today are looking for ways to upgrade their beauty routine with clean products that are not tested on animals. In this post, our formulation experts push back the curtain on what it means to be a cruelty-free beauty brand and explore cruelty-free vaseline alternatives found at Kinetik.

Beauty without Cruelty: What are Cruelty-Free Beauty Products

While there is not a set definition for ‘cruelty-free,’ one commonly accepted meaning is that the product and its ingredients are not tested on animals. Unfortunately, since the terms ‘cruelty-free’ and ‘not tested on animals’ are not regulated, these claims can be misleading. Therefore, many consumers are looking for brands that have a certification with organizations like Leaping Bunny or PETA.

Under these cruelty-free certifications, beauty brands undergo an evaluation process to ensure that no animal testing is used in any phase of the product’s development, throughout the manufacturing process, or by its ingredient suppliers.

Who is Looking for Cruelty-Free Vaseline Alternatives

Cosmetic testing on animals has been reduced significantly, due to public demand. However, it is still legal in the United States. As consumers become more aware and more vocal about the welfare of animals, the demand for body, hair and skin care products that they can feel good about rises.

Consumers searching for cruelty-free vaseline alternatives often turn to natural sources, such as coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, jojoba oil and other clean beauty ingredients. Whether they are vegan or concerned for animal welfare, consumers want substitutes that not only naturally soothe and nourish their skin, but are also formulated via humane methods.
