Veganism is starting to gain popularity and ‘trend status’ all around the world. Every year more people commit to the philosophy and the principles associated with the vegan lifestyle. But what does the beauty industry have to do with veganism? In this blog we explain why NATULIQUE teamed up with The Vegan Society and why we, as a brand, want to continuously work towards incorporating their vision in our mission.
On what grounds has NATULIQUE build its vegan principles?
“Are your salon products tested on animals?” or “Do you use vegan-friendly styling products?” “Are the hair colours cruelty-free?” Today hairdressers and stylists are increasingly faced with these and similar questions by their clients.
The environmentally responsible and critical consumer wants to make sure his conscience stays clean and that the products they choose are in line with their values. Even many artists have chosen to “go vegan” themselves as a consequence of making themselves more aware through and for their line of work.
As a socially responsible brand, we love seeing that the awareness and criticism of animal-cruelty in the conventional beauty industry is rising and that our NATULIQUE family is right behind us in the fight for the rights of all.
The actions we’ve taken
We deeply respect the vegan way of living for its mindfulness towards our animal friends. Self-evidently, NATULIQUE has never used animal testing for its products and never will.
As we continuously strive to improve ourselves and thereby improve the ways in which we can support the NATULIQUE family we want to be more than just cruelty-free.
We want to take a stand for animal welfare to support our vegan hairdressers and their vegan clients. In 2017, we took the first big step of many and teamed up with The Vegan Society to certify selected NATULIQUE products officially as “vegan”, support their mission and hold ourselves to higher standards than we had before.
Before being able to change the beauty industry for the better, we had to look within ourselves first.
Today we can proudly say that we have added many more vegan certified products to our line and strive to produce only vegan-friendly options.
We are strongly determined to contribute to a better, safer, more conscious environment, and we believe going vegan in the production of our products is the first step in doing so.
Who is The Vegan Society?
As the oldest and therefore most experienced vegan community in the field, the Vegan Society is the perfect partner to support us on our vegan journey.
Being the creator of the word “vegan” itself, the UK-based non-profit organization promotes vegan practices since 1944. A dedicated team fights to reduce animal suffering every day – an issue that belongs to the core principles of NATULIQUE.
Alongside running campaigns and creating awareness, the certification of products through the vegan trademark is a fundamental part of their work. By providing orientation and credibility the trademark makes “life as a vegan” a lot easier and holds brands accountable for their product standards.
What does the certification stand for?
Before a product is approved to carry The Vegan Society’s sunflower-logo, it has to meet strict criteria.
Most important: “The manufacture and/or development of the product, and where applicable its ingredients, must not involve or have involved, the use of any animal product, by-product or derivative or testing of any sort of animals”.
The registration of each product is renewed annually, to ensure that the information is accurate and up-to-date.
