Poshology does not and will not ever use products containing animal products in our artisan made products and we are against animal testing of any kind. We believe in Cruelty & Paraben free beauty products in our formulas, we do use some safe synthetics in our fragrances that are not harmful. We use vendors for our artisan skincare and beauty that practice the same standards as we do. We will do our utmost to follow proper labeling protocol and tell you the true ingredients that are in our artisan products. Some of our products do contain beeswax but no insects are harmed or tested on for their beeswax. Any of our products that contains any animal derived ingredient will not be labeled as vegan. Insects are not animals but this is a gray area for some vegans in regards to the use of honey, beeswax or carmine. With that being stated, all of our products are vegan. Even though some of our products contain beeswax we are 100% cruelty-free.
