Vegan Essentials Statement About Vegan Products

Vegan Essentials does not “wish to offer anything that contains any animal-based ingredients or that has been tested on animals.  Period.  We’re vegans ourselves, and we have never had any plans to sell anything that is not conforming to vegan standards.  You may read an ingredient in a product that sounds like it is not vegan, but trust us, there are many different ways something can be derived or created, so even if something looks like it might not be vegan, or you read that the ingredient is from an animal, you can be sure that the derivative in the product we’re carrying is not from an animal source.  It is extremely rare that a company ever changes ingredients to make a vegan product non-vegan, but if this were to happen with something we were carrying, we would immediately discontinue the product and no longer offer it in our store.”
