Unfortunately the brand Charvin is not vegan-friendly. After an initial short reply implying that the oils could be vegan, I asked about more details and highlighted parts in my information sheet about what vegan-friendly and cruelty-free are. After this I got the reply that they meant to say “they can’t be”. The reply does not hold the clue to what it applied; to the vegan part or the cruelty-free part or both. I think they probably read the information sheet more properly after my second inquiry and then had to say no. Nevertheless they did reply, which I appreciate even if it is just to know that their products are not suitable for vegan-friendly minded people.
I contacted more companies, but haven’t heard back yet and it is probably fair to say, they won’t reply at all. If brands I contacted already over a year ago and now for a second time over a month + ago show no response, they just won’t.
I fill you in with the new batch of companies I wrote to in the next post and in the meantime will contact more companies.
