Vegan Society Registered Beauty Products
The Vegan Society works towards making Veganism an easily adopted and widely recognised approach to reducing animal and human suffering.
The Vegan Society is an educational charity that promotes and supports the vegan lifestyle. The Vegan logo is a registered trademark and is a symbol of Vegan 'Animal-free' Standards. It appears on thousands of animal free products and is displayed by businesses and brands that have been registered with The Vegan Society.
By purchasing products registered with the Vegan Trademark, you are investing in the future of a market which is free from animal products and free from animal testing, which in turn has the potential to save the lives of millions of animals around the world.
The Society says:
"Ours is the original Vegan Society, founded by Donald Watson and six like-minded 'non-dairy vegetarians' in November 1944. They decided to form a new society and adopt a new name to describe themselves - vegan derived from VEGetariAN.
You can trust us to set the standard for vegan living. Our Vegan Trademark is an integral part of what we do. It is the most widely recognised vegan symbol in the world, authenticating not only food and drink, but also beauty products, toiletries, clothing, catering and many other services. So next time you're shopping online or in the supermarket, look for the Vegan Trademark and rest assured your purchase supports your vegan lifestyle.
To be eligible for the Vegan Trademark, all products and services undergo stringent checks to meet our high standard. The Vegan Trademark not only guarantees that products and the manufacturing processes are free from animal products, by-products and derivatives; but that they are also free from animal testing and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that include animal genes. Manufacturers and suppliers are also expected to take all reasonable steps to eliminate cross-contamination, plus have to agree to annual checks. Phew!"
