L’oreal Face Cleaner

Filed under: Uncategorized — vegconsumer @ 7:58 pm

I’m not a fan of using face washes because I feel they damage the skin more than help it. Nevertheless, my aunt from India is really keen on the newest products in Canada and asks us to send her whatever new has come out. I decided to call l’oreal to see what they put in their face washes (they came out with a new one – go 360 clean), and they said that all of their products are completely free of animal products. I did not ask about animal by-products (e.g. milk) but I remember her sounding extremely confident about them not using animal products. This is impressive for a company as large as l’oreal.

Again, these products have many other chemicals in them. But I am sure some use them, so thought it’d be helpful to post that they are allegedly free of animal residue.


St. Ives Body Wash – Safe!

Yay! St. Ives Body Wash is also free of animal products, according to the label on its bottles. I really appreciate when companies save us the work by labelling their products. Canadians – you can purchase it at Shoppers Drug Mart.

St. Ives Lotion

Filed under: Uncategorized — vegconsumer @ 5:31 pm

I don’t know about all St. Ives lotions, but they came out with a new brand of hand & body lotion. It’s not just the “Mineral Therapy” lotion but a few other ones as well (e.g. Soothing Oatmeal Shea, Soothing Aloe & Chamomile, etc.) that are reportedly free of animal ingredients. I didn’t call them but the lotions say directly on them that no animal derived ingredients are used.

Note: these creams are still full of other chemicals. It is great, though, that St. Ives has clearly labelled them as vegetarian, so we know. Canadians, you can pick this up from Shoppers Drug Mart.
