I've been buying Nature's Gate shampoos for a while now. They just recently did a change on their product line with new bottles. I bought 4 new bottles and noticed of course after the fact that an ingredient was there that is not on my old bottles. Diazolidinyl Urea. I thought this was an enzyme from animal urine, or maybe it's animal urine? I don't know but it's gross.<br><br><br><br>
They have the bunny logo and the statement "Produced without animal testig and with no animal byproducts."<br><br>
So does this mean their products are not vegan?<br><br>
Does anyone know?<br><br><br><br>
Namaste,<br><br>

diazolidinyl urea is synthetic urine and vegan. why they choose to put it in their products is a different questoin!

When I pull a Google definition on the term, one entry says "antiseptic and deodorizer" and another says "complex natural preservative".<br><br><br><br>
I would give them the benefit of the doubt, personally, since the labeling on the bottle clearly indicates no animal testing or byproducts. It's nice to see a company take the extra step of putting that on their packaging.

I was able to find some time to research and found basically the same thing. I also found that it releases formaldehyde though in a converted form or something like that.<br><br><br><br>
I find in many products that are supposed to be cruelty/animal free the labeling to be a little confusing. In my foundation (Ecco Bella) it says it has cetyl alcohol which comes from whales I believe. I guess I have to give them the benefit since they also state made without animal ingredients or animal testing.

The cosmetic making company I order from has this to say about cetyl alcohol:<br><br><br><br>
Used as a stabiliser for other Emulsifiers. Made from Palm Kernel Oil Fatty Acid (Palmitic Acid), which is treated with liquid gas so that the free oxygen (O) atom is removed. Cetyl Alcohol makes Creams and Lotions firmer and gives them consistency.<br><br><br><br>
So it is posible to be vegan.
