Plant based products are sustainable

Many years ago we included Beeswax in our range.

Historically Beeswax was the most common form of cosmetic wax in natural products.

What is Beeswax? And why is it harmful to the Bees?

Beeswax is produced by the bees to build comb which is used to house their young and store honey.

You can't harvest honey without harvesting beeswax.

Bees are 'exploited' by harvesting the honey and that their health is sacrificed when the honey and wax are harvested.

Therefore People, who follow a Vegan diet, also avoid honey.

 

Bees and Wax

 

 

In 2021 there are many ways to ensure animals are not harmed or exploited, and products retain quality and effectiveness, and are sourced from a renewable raw material.

For example the plant based wax we use is derived from, Olive, it is ethically produced, cruelty free, certified organic, while providing a unique non-greasy feel.

Just because something is vegan doesn’t mean you can’t be allergic to it.  Many plant-derived ingredients, or plants themselves, can cause irritation or a contact allergy.

To minimize potential irritation from vegan skin care products, check the label for the words "preservative-free," since preservatives can often aggravate skin.

Our Natural Deodorant products are Preservative Free, Vegan Friendly, All Natural, and made using Certified Organic Ingredients.
