What does Vegan mean anyways? It means that the product does not contain any animal derived ingredients. A few example ingredients are carmine, gelatin, honey, beeswax, lanolin, cholesterol, collagen, albumen, and many more. FYI, I read a very interesting article about honey, is it vegan or not? We are not a 100% vegan brand, but we believe in listing every single ingredient to keep our clients informed of exactly what they are applying to their skin. We carry many non-vegan colors that contain carmine and have them listed in a collection that you can viewHERE.
