The hot and sometimes controversial topic of Vegan skincare products is close to our hearts. Many find the concept of Vegan products, and parameters around what exactly makes a product Vegan rather confusing. Here at Elysian Theory we will never throw around trendy buzzwords, in order to mislead you into believing a product is something that it isn’t.
So what does Vegan mean ?
Vegan means that no animal by-products were used in the formulation of a product, but it certainly does not mean that it is natural, organic or free from toxins. Believe it or not, it does not even mean that it is cruelty-free. Vegan cosmetics do not contain any ingredients of animal origin, such as beeswax, honey or lanolin.
The same care you may take in reading the back of non-vegan products, needs to be practiced in reading the small print of vegan products.
We understand that not everybody has the time to read the small prints, or decipher them, so rest assured that the brands we choose to collaborate with who are vegan, natural and organic, are really that. They are transparent in their formulation and practice, and we are proud to work them.
