Barry M Eyeshadows!

This community is strictly for discussing vegan cosmetics. There is not enough information or products out there, so hopefully this will be helpful in sharing some knowledge.

Please post your reviews, new findings, questions, and general cosmetics inquires such as skin care, applictations, tips, etc.

Pictures are acceptable as long as they are not too big. Use your discretion. If you think they are too big, put them under the cut.

Off topic discussion and disrespect will not be accepted.

The following links are here because there is no general info page. If you think I missed a company or product post it in the community and it will be added. It would be nice to have a long list of avaliable products!
Please note that there are hardly any all vegan companies. Most of the natural cosmetics will include beeswax or carmine, so check the label to be sure. I included disclaimers at the bottom to help out.

Have fun!

While most of the links here have many vegan options, some products may contain beeswax, carmine, or other by-product.

*Aveda - We use state-of-the-art testing methods to ensure the safety and efficacy of our products. All of our ingredients and formulations are tested in vitro and on human volunteers. We do not test our products on animals, nor do we ask others to conduct animal testing on our behalf. May contain animal by products, need to inquire for specific item.

*Barry M Cosmetics have never tested their finished products on animals or engaged another company to do so on our behalf. All of our products are suitable for vegetarians but some contain animal by-products (like Beeswax) making them unsuitable for Vegans. Ranges of products not suitable for Vegans, Make up, Foundation Creme, Shimmering Body Creme, Translucent Compact, Natural Dazzle compact, Shimmering Eye and Lip Crayon, Lip paint, Lip Gloss and Mascara.

*Dr.Hauschka- Skin Care opposes animal testing. We do not perform animal testing nor do we use ingredients that have been tested on animals. Plant-derived ingredients are used whenever possible, however, we do not hold a vegetarian or vegan standard. WALA Heilmittel, manufacturer of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products, has a holistic formulary philosophy that values ingredients from the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms. Several ingredients in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products are humanely obtained from animals: Lanolin, lanolin alcohol, lactose, propolis, royal jelly, pollen and beeswax. No animal is harmed to obtain these ingredients. Silk powder and carmine are derived from insects. Obtaining these ingredients is not possible without harm to the insect. These ingredients are purposefully chosen for their unique properties. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products are certified for complying with guidelines regarding animal testing and ingredients set forth by both PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) and the BDIH (German Federation of Natural Products Manufacturers). Details on these guidelines may be accessed online at: www.peta.org and www.kontrollierte-naturkosmetik.de
