Your Guide To Vegan Cleaning Products
Opting for a vegan lifestyle is a great way to cut back on your impact on the environment. While many may be converting to being a vegan in terms of their diet, we also believe that swapping your traditional cleaning products for vegan friendly products is a great way to do your bit for the environment.
A common misconception is that chemical based products will give you better results compared to plant alternatives. However, this is not always the case. Not only are vegan cleaning products a lot kinder to animals and the planet, but they are also extremely effective when it comes to cleaning!
A great deal of household cleaning products contain animal-derived ingredients. Reading the label on product wont always help you determine if animal derived ingredients is included, because, unfortunately for us, chemical names are commonly used, which we have no clue what they are!
We have listed some one the animal-derived ingredients which are commonly used in household cleaning products below:
- Myristic acid (this may be sourced from animal fat if not plant-based)
- Stearic acid (this may be derived from animal fats also if not plant-based)
- Tallow (derived specifically from beef fat)
- Allyl alcohols (this may be extracted from several species of animal such as fish, for example)
- Caprylic acid (this may be sourced from milk if not plant-based)
- Glycerol (may be derived from animal fats if not plant-based)
- Lecithin (this is waxy nervous tissue from animals if not plant-based)
- Oleyl alcohols (may be sourced from beef fat or fish oil if not plant-based)
- Beeswax (produced by bees)
