Being only on my...6th day as an official vegan, I have learned to ALWAYS read label ingredients lists, even from brands that I foolishly trust. I have been really enjoying products made by "Kiss My Face"... hand soap, bodywash, all that jazz. Then I bought the "All Night Creme" to give it a whirl and double-checked that the label had the assurance:

"This product was created without animal ingredients, artificial colors, unnecessary chemicals, or animal testing."

...Basically that's what ALL their labels say, which is why I trusted them. But then when I actually browsed the ingredients, AHH! Beeswax!! Isn't THAT an animal ingredient? Or are they assuming that insects don't count as animals? Makes me so frustrated!! And here I was thinking that when a brand pledges itself to being cruelty-free, I can hold them to it! *sigh* I can tell this will be a looooong learning process. I already found out too late that my "vegan" parmesan cheese has casein in it. Should have read the thread where everyone else grumbled about that! lol. Guess I'll eat it (the "parmesan", not the face creme LOL!) anyways since I can't return it. What a waste.

That sucks about the face cream. I use their hand lotion, hand soap and bar soap and those do not have any beeswax in them. So maybe it is just some of their products. It does make me mad too that they say they don't use animal products when beeswax is an animal product. Maybe this should be brought to the company's attention. It is important to read the ingredients on everything because you never know what non-vegan ingredient may be in a product.

That's enough to make me never want to buy anything from them.


I was thinking about buying something from them before... I think I'll give them a call sometime this week and let them know they need to change their claims.

Those poor bees! Well in that case we should probably start moving up the change in definition to include small crustaceans too. They can be uhhh... Minerals.
