Is this vegan-friendly? It sounds kind of like a milk-derivative, menthyl LAC-tate, but I wanted to find out. It's in my lipgloss: CO Bigelow Apothecaries Mentha Lip Shine No. 502, it's minty flavored. It's not tested on animals.
I tried googling menthyl lactate, but I couldn't figure out where it's derived from. Maybe sugar beets like lactic acid?
Anyone know? Thanks!
