Are The Products You're Using In Your Home Vegan?
Maybe you’re just over halfway through completing Veganuary or maybe you just want to swap to a more plant based diet. Either way, have you given a thought to your beauty, personal care, hair and cleaning products? To be classed as vegan a product must not contain any animal products or by-products and it must not be tested on animals. So are the products you’re using vegan?
