Officially Vegan!

Mama Bamboo are officially Vegan!!

Many of us may have toyed with the idea of switching to vegan food for Veganuary but we may not have considered ‘going vegan’ in other facets of life.  An easy change to make is buying vegan cosmetics and baby care items.

30 years ago it was common practice for many cosmetic products to be tested on animals.  Thanks to greater awareness and tireless campaigning everyone is more conscientious about their choices and many brands of cosmetics and personal care items are proud to state that they are cruelty free.

Additionally we are becoming more aware of animal products and by-products in our make up and  bath and shower products used by the whole family.  As a result new vegan skincare, haircare and make up brands are popping up or existing brands are changing how they do things.

How are vegan products different to cruelty free products?

It is commonly misconstrued that is a product is cruelty free then it is also vegan but that can often not be the case.  Many products contain animal ingredients or animal derived ingredients such as honey, beeswax, carmine, collagen and gelatine.

How do I know Mama Bamboo wipes are vegan?

It can be a minefield trying to work out if a product is vegan or no, so we have made this easier by registering our Bamaboo wet wipes with the Vegan Society.  This means 2 things:

  1. We do not test our ingredients on animals
  2. Our products so not contain any animal products or by products

This now means you have one less thing to feel guilty about as a parent as when you are buying Bamaboo wet wipes not only are they 100% compostable they are also cruelty free and vegan.

Anyone can call their product 'eco' - clever branding and careful choice of words is often all that is needed.

We think all parents should know what is in the nappies their baby is wearing. Here's what to know.
