Gaia Skincare is now Vegan Society Registered
Founded in 1944, The Vegan Society is a registered educational charity that provides information and guidance on various aspects of veganism, promoting non-dairy vegetarian diets and lifestyles.
“…a philosophy and way of living which seeks to include – as far as possible and practicable – all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternative for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.” – an age-old definition of veganism from The Vegan Society
Whilst the beeswax and honey used in just a handful of Gaia products has been lovingly farmed here at Gaia's flagship spa and Dartmoor back garden, or from 100% honest sources, Gaia understands that even animal by-products are still a no for many vegans, and why Gaia uses these to an absolute minimal, but does want to recognise their more friendly and exceptional natural qualities.
Linking responsibly to Gaia's recent accreditation to the Leaping Bunny Program, in formulating cruelty-free natural skincare, this additional acknowledgement to the welfare of animals reinforces their values and as the brand grows, so will their commitment to formulating purely vegan-friendly products.
You can now find The Vegan Society logo, proudly represented next to those vegan-friendly Gaia products on their web shop here.
