Health awareness and a responsible attitude of our society with regard to protecting nature and environment are becoming widespread. This also affects daily skin care. The vegan lifestyle derives from this worthwhile attitude.
What does 'vegan lifestyle' at all mean? In short, people living vegan reject the consumption of products with animal ingredients. This includes food derived from animals, egg and milk products, as well as clothing, footwear, accessories, leather furnishings and cosmetics with ingredients derived from or tested at animals. The vegan lifestyle is very difficult to maintain especially with regard to cleaning agents and drugs because they or their ingredients may still be tested at animals.
Cosmetics labelled vegan should not contain any ingredients deriving from or tested on animals. Alas, the term 'vegan' is neither legally defined nor protected, meaning that even vegan cosmetics products are not necessarily produced without resorting to animal experiments.
Belico is committed to protecting nature and its resources. Using animal ingredients is dispensed with in the development and production of our care and cosmetics products. Only the Belico lipsticks and cover sticks contain beeswax and CONCENTRATE V contains propolis. In this case, however, attention is paid to proper harvesting during purchase. Beside vegan, ecological criteria are taken into account, which is why Belico products are positively ranked on platforms for consumer protection like Kosmetikanalyse or Codecheck. Furthermore, Belico guarantees that no animal experiments will be carried out and no third parties assigned to tests at animals of any kind.
Belico preparations are also recommended for vegan skin care by PETA, the largest animal protection organization in Germany.
