Are all MeiKind products Vegan and Cruelty Free?



What do we mean by ‘Vegan’ and ‘Cruelty Free’ cosmetics?

By using the term ‘Vegan’, we mean a product that 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. However, we distinguish this to the term ‘cruelty free’.


How do we know the cosmetics we supply are vegan and cruelty free?

We only target those companies who have the same values as us and we speak directly to the cosmetic companies to ensure our expectations are clear as well as checking the listed ingredients.

Do the companies you work with only create vegan and cruelty free cosmetics?

No. The companies we work with do not necessarily have a complete range of vegan products, however we only sell the vegan and cruelty free products that they make on our website. We believe by increasing the demand for these products, we can encourage the industry to make this the norm.


You sell a product I love but you don't have my shade/colour?

Unfortunately, its's not always the case that every shade/colour of product is vegan and cruelty free. 


Do you post oversees?
