Do You Look For Vegan Products?

The new GARNIER ORGANICS range isn't available in NZ yet, but we've got our hands on it.  ALL OF IT.  And we'll be recruiting 4 different trial teams to each put various products to the test.  

Fun fact time - The majority of the Beauty Crew are Vegetarian.  One of us is Vegan.  Me, I've been a Vegetarian since birth, my Mummy doesn't like cooking meat and so I grew up meat-free, and it stuck.  

All of the Garnier Organics products have Vegan ingredients, and it got me to wondering - is this an important factor in beauty products for other people?  People make dietary choices for many reasons - health, beliefs or convenience - but do they extend their choices to the beauty products they choose?   

And if you're not Vegan or Vegetarian, what do you think when buying a product that carries the V-leaf?  Do you feel they're a softer, kinder choice to your skin and the environment?  Or does it makes no difference to your feelings towards a product?

We're putting the Garnier Organic Cornflower Micellar Water  to the test.  This micellar water is enriched with organic cornflower and barley water to cleanse and nourish the skin.  It promises to remove waterproof and longwear make-up! 

It is Cosmos Organic certified by Soil Association according to COSMOS standard.  The Cornflower has been specifically selected by Garnier and sourced with respect for biodiversity.  It comes from France where it is organically produced.  The bottle contains 100% recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. 

So if you'd like to put this product to the test, tell us - do you pay particular attention to the ingredients in the product and whether they compliment your dietary choices?  Are you a Vegan or Vegetarian and do you struggle to find products that work with you, and fit in with your beliefs?

Lets do a shout out to garnier for this little beaut! Even if i dont get on the trial i will find this and purchase it. Im pescatarian and love being able to make more conscious choices in aspects of my life. I love micellar water and the fact there is somethinf even better excites me. I am currently using the garnier product that is suitable for contact lenses and would love to see how this compares!!

I'm not vegan or vegetarian so I don't specifically look for these labels, but when I come across them, I'm usually more favourable to trying the product because it seems better for the environment and my skin.

I have become far more aware of what's in food and certainly it is time that interest expanded to what we put on our skin! There have been "natural" products around for years and yet how confident can we be unless we read those labels? I would love to try this Garnier micellar water with its carefully chosen ingredients and I have used Garnier's general micellar water previously so a comparison would be ideal.

This looks great I’m going to have to hunt this down

I look for quality ingredients and do prefer plant based, but not a dietary requirement. This cornflower micellar water looks amazing! I have used a Mustela water before that had cornflower in it, and it was simply gorgeous.

No I don’t look for vegan products at all as it’s not a dietary requirement for me.

I do look at inci lists though to see if there’s anything in there that irritates my skin or eyes such as SLS and essential oils.

I dont specifically look for vegan products. I do however look for products that are gentle on my skin. The less nasties in them the better.

I don’t actively look for vegan/vegetarian products but organic Skincare is always appealing

I’m also not vegan or vegetarian dietarily but I don’t really eat red meat, am allergic to seafood and spent a lot of time in asia so see things like tofu as completely acceptable dinners. I’m flexitarian I guess...

Well done Garnier. I do love Vegan products because they’ re a guarantee that no animals were harmed in the making of the product. My teenage daughter has extremely sensitive skin and has definitely noticed that vegan products are kinder to her skin. I don’t exclusively use these products but would definitely pick them over others if they offer the same (or better) quality.

Vegan doesn’t necessarily mean that the products haven’t been tested on animals, only that they don’t contain ingredients sourced from animals. So also check if the products are certified as being cruelty free.

I'm vegetarian - have been since my teens. My kids are vegetarian, because by default I don't cook meat. But I'm pretty sure my mum feeds them meat, and it's just their secret lol. My husband won't give up bacon so he's the minority in our home!...I'm not super strict on 'vegan' skin care/beauty products etc. but probably choose it by preference when looking for something new . I don't analyse ingredients though...This micellar looks awesome - I find micellar waters have a lot of 'chemicals' rather than natural origin - this one sounds really promising, I'm curious how natural it is that it can remove waterproof makeup :-)
