BeVeg Vegan Certification for cosmetics, make-up, hair and skin care, personal care, toiletries, perfumes.

The Vegan Cosmetics market size is projected to be worth $20.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., progressing at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period.

Unlike food products, the cosmetic sector has no laws defining what a natural cosmetic is, and a “natural” cosmetic can often be of animal origin.

Consumers are increasingly demanding proof of vegan assurance and vegan certification from suppliers to finished products that are cruelty-free, and free from animal experimentation.

Truthful labels and claims supported by reliable scientific tests, audits, and ingredient research. An independent control and certification program with international accreditations, which makes the rules, the lists of companies and certified vegan products (including the ingredients) accountable to the public.

Manufacturers and retailers of vegan products, committed to substantiating the vegan integrity and reliability of those vegan labeled products before they are placed on the market, must be up-to-date with current and evolving vegan trends and requirements applicable to the products they produce and sell to brand owners as an individual product or private label vegan product.

BeVeg vegan certifiers will help you demonstrate that your materials and products are compliant to market requirements, enabling you to trade all over the world with vegan confidence for the conscious consumer.

The BeVeg vegan certification process for cosmetics, make-up, hair and skin care, personal care, toiletries, perfume, and vegan product certification considers identification of ingredients, factory audit inspections, and testing and analysis to ensure accountability in vegan labeled claims.


Household care products such as cleaning products and detergents are subject to the same close scrutiny. Did you know that common household detergents and branded cleaning products could contain as many as ten animal-derived ingredients such as caprylic acid (sourced from milk) tallow (rendered beef fat), animal glycerol and stearic acid (animal fat) and more ingredients disguised in names to confuse and mislead the vegan interested consumer. Moreover, the concentration of ingredients and trade secrets of the manufacturer protect the product branding to the detriment of vegan consumer transparency. That means ingredients may not fully be disclosed and those that are may be cloaked as a convoluted word to coach the chemical or cleaning product in non-offensive terms. However, if you want to know if the product is vegan and rest assured that it is, you can trust the experts at BeVeg and the BeVeg vegan certification standard to ensure truth and transparency in vegan label claims.


Testing and certification for vegan hand sanitizers and disinfectants ensures regulatory compliance in a fast-evolving market. Zoonotic diseases are born from animal exploitation and hand sanitizers are essential during global pandemics of animal origin.

Large orders of hand sanitizers, wet wipes, and other disinfectants are challenging the global supply chain, and authorities have responded by easing restrictions. That means potential compromised vegan integrity in the supply chain – from manufacturing, retailing or importing without proper vegan regulation.


Perfume and fragrance ingredients and labels are often misleading to the vegan consumer, without vegan certification. Did you know most perfumes are not vegan? Did you know trade secret law protects the manufacturer from disclosing ingredients that do not have to be explicitly labeled based on the minimal concentration of the ingredient?

Perfumes often can contain animal ingredients like: Civet (faecal paste from the anal glands of a civet cat), castoreum (creates a leather smell, it is derived emitted from the genital scent sacs of a castor beaver), ambergris (derived from the digestive tract of sperm whales), and musk or katsuri (an odor secreted from the sheath gland of musk deer) — and all are prevalent.

Many perfumes are not labeled vegan because they contain animal-derived ingredients and changing these would alter the scent profiles that make them best-sellers. If you can’t find a vegan label it’s best to assume that perfume or fragrance is not vegan.
