Dr. Bronner’s Announces Vegan Certification Approved by the Vegan Society UK
January 1, 2014
Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, the family-owned maker of the top-selling brand of natural soaps in the USA, is pleased to announce being certified by the Vegan society UK. This certification assures the growing population of vegans that no animal testing or animal ingredients are used in Dr. Bronner’s products that carry the certification. The “Vegan-Certified” logo will be added to the company’s labels in the U.S. on some products, and it will be promoted and expanded upon further on the company’s website.
David Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s Magic soaps says “As a dedicated vegan, I’m proud that my family has stepped up to commit resources over the long-term to take on the terrible plight of farm animals and to promote more compassionate and sustainable dietary choices. One doesn’t have to be vegan to want to reduce the incredible suffering of animals in factory farms and to lower overall meat consumption.”
While the formulas for Dr. Bronner’s soaps, lotions, shave gels, hair rinse and hair crèmes have always been vegan and have not changed, the vegan certification will help those interested in vegan and cruelty-free products shop without having to closely scrutinize all the ingredients lists. The lip and body balms have not received vegan certification, however, as they contain Fair Trade and organic beeswax. The beeswax is sourced from beekeepers in Zambia who do not kill the queen bees annually in order to maximize production, which is a common practice in conventional beekeeping operations.
Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps’ commitment to animal welfare, sustainable agriculture and income equality reflects the company’s mission to practice the social and ecological principles that inform Dr. Bronner’s philosophy.
