Is Heyland and Whittle suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

All of our products are suitable for vegetarians

One thing we get asked about a lot is whether our products are suitable for vegetarians or vegans. We're happy to say that none of our products or ingredients are animal tested and the majority of them don't use any animal products.

You'll notice that we don't use the BUAV leaping bunny or Vegetarian Society symbol on our products. This isn't because Heyland and Whittle don't meet their standards - in many ways we actually exceed them - but because we would rather do what we can to keep our products affordable for you.

Some certification actually requires companies to pay to use the logo or state that they are approved by certain bodies, which would mean we have to charge you more to cover the cost. Instead, we work hard to source sustainable, vegetarian and vegan ingredients that allow us to make the best products while still meeting high standards.

This means that you can be assured that all of our products are suitable for vegetarians, at the very least.

The only animal ingredients we do use in some products is goats' milk, which provides a number of benefits to your skin - you can read about these here - and beeswax, which is also great for skincare. We feel that these beautiful ingredients should be used to provide the best results possible with some of our traditional soaps and our new hand creams.

However, goats' milk isn't included in all of our soaps and beeswax isn't in all of our lotions, so you'll be happy to know that vegans can also enjoy them.
