Vegan skin care
Below are the products in our range that are completely vegan.
We thought carefully about using organic beeswax, we realised it would not suit some customers, but we felt it was the best choice overall. We could have used a vegetable wax instead, but vegetable crops are still harmful, they cause deforestation, loss of habitat and loss of diversity.
We agree eating a plant based diet, is definitely a positive choice when compared to eating beef or even other less environmentally impacting meats, and we applaud the vegan choice. But choosing a mono-crop over beeswax, which naturally promotes the care of bees, our vital pollinators which are so famously in decline (due to loss of habitat and lose of diversity), that doesn't seem to add up to us. So we chose beeswax.
We only use organic beeswax. We know bees are farmed and they can be treated badly. We believe our insistence on organic wax, means we are using farmers who care and will not mistreat their bees. Organic standards mean bees must be left honey to feed themselves in the winter and can only be fed organic sugar syrup at very specific and limited times.
So if you are a vegan you can choose the products below and if you feel you can make an exception for products containing organic beeswax, you can see those products here.
