I wrote to Avalon Organics inquiring about their Vegan products because they didn't blatantly say "Our products are vegan and they sent me this letter. I don't know if anyone cares but I figured someone would like to know...

We offer a unique collection of quality personal care products for caring consumers seeking natural, organic and cruelty-free ingredient alternatives within the vegetarian ethic.
We continually strive for the finest possible formulations with superior efficacy and optimum benefits. We make maximum use of ingredients derived from natural plant sources, including vegetable and nut oils, plant waxes, herbal extracts and pure essential oils.
We reject ingredients that are by-products of the meat and fishing industry such as gelatin, tallow, collagen, elastin, squalene, and others. We also reject all cruelly obtained animal ingredients such as musk, castoreum and cochineal (carmine). While, the vegetarian ethic allows for the use of humanely derived milk, honey, beeswax and lanolin (from trimmed wool), only a very limited number of our products contain one of these ingredients.
Avalon makes every attempt to offer a full range of quality personal care products that can meet and exceed strict vegan standards. However, if our products cannot meet your specific personal needs, we fully support your continued product search.
The folks at Avalon
It's good that they explained to me what the vegetarian ethic allows, otherwise I would have no idea.... because I'm just a VEGAN!
