Our founder talking about vegan Skin Care on TV. There are two criteria to be vegan:
1) No animal or animal-derived ingredients such as lanolin, beeswax, honey, carmine, egg, milk etc.
2) No animal testing on the final product AS WELL AS each individual ingredients. It is harder to discern if at the ingredient level has been animal tested thus knowing the brand and credibility is important to be a true vegan beauty brand.
Vegan also does not mean 100% natural. 100% natural does not mean vegan either as animal ingredients are natural, just saying :)
Once again, lip balms could be ingested. If you are a true vegan, consider use a vegan lip balm.
