What is Vegan?

The definition of  a vegan cosmetic is that it’s a product that doesn’t contain any animal by-products. A by-product can be an animal ingredient or animal-derived ingredient. So, for example, a vegan cream wouldn’t contain the ingredient beeswax as this is derived directly from bees.

To most people the term ‘vegan’ should also imply that the product isn’t tested on animals however this isn’t regulated so go easy on the assumptions. A product can be tested on animals and still legally claim to be ‘vegan’.

A product that is vegan does not contain any animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients. This includes, but is not limited to, honey, beeswax, lanolin, collagen, albumen, carmine, cholesterol, gelatin, and many others. To many, the term “vegan” also means that a product is free from animal testing as well.
If a product has been certified by one of the internationally recognised organic bodies such as Soil Association, Cosmos, USDA, Natrue etc. then it cannot be tested on animals or it would not be certified plus testing cosmetics on animals is banned in the EU by law

Sveti Cosmetics has a variety of Cosmetics that meet these requirements and are marked as Vegan. Our Bio Damascena Range and Rose jasminium ranges are completely Vegan friendly.

Our Luxury LEXIRA range also has many vegan friendly products and are marked with the vegan symbol. Unfortunately, a few contain Beeswax and would not be suitable.

Our Superseeds Srange is vegan as well as its much of our Wooden spoon range and are marked as such however, again. a few do contain beeswax.

Our Lady’s Joy Luxury Collection uses Black Pearl Extract and therefore is not suitable
