Do you have someone on your gift list or in your life who is a vegan? Are you familar with exactly what product restrictions vegans have? Being vegan usually applies to more than just dietary restrictions. Here are answers to some of the most often asked questions about being vegan. For even more you can visit the Vegan Society website.
A vegan does not consume meat, dairy products, eggs, honey, or any product derived from an animal. A vegan diet can still be extremely varied by including vegetables, grains, nuts, legumes, seeds, and fruits. Vegans can extend their lifestyle restrictions far beyond their diet. They don’t wear leather, fur, silk, or wool. They may refuse to use products that are made with animal ingredients and those that have been tested on animals.
A vegetarian will usually still consume products containing eggs, dairy and honey. A vegan will eliminate those from their diet or lifestyle.
Since vegans abstain from dairy and bee products that includes items such as goat’s milk soap and lip balm or lotion bars which are often made with beeswax. It would also include any soaps or products made with lard or tallow.
Here at Susan’s Soaps we don’t use lard or tallow or any animal fats in our products but we do have products that are made with goat’s milk, honey and beeswax. Shown below are some of our products that you can safely gift to a vegan.
Selection of Vegan Soaps
Most of our soaps are vegan, so I am just presenting 9 of our most popular here. None of them have beeswax but just be sure to avoid any with honey or goat’s milk.
We offer both liquid shampoo and solid shampoo bars and both are vegan products. The solid shampoo bars are great for travel. Men in particular really like our shampoo bars because they make things so easy. One bar used head to toe!
