All Sheabynature raw materials are exclusively vegan. We use a large number of vegetable oils, butters and waxes all vegan. We do not use raw materials derived from animals as we believe there is a vast array of possibilities of raw material available from plants. Our products are manufactured based on these principles from day one. You can buy sheabynature skin care products knowing that they are derived from plant origins.
We use beeswax in our lip balms as this is just a by-product. As we all know bees are not harmed in the process of collecting beeswax.
