Compendium

If you don’t find a company you are looking for in this list, please enter the company name in the search box to see their status. If you still can’t find the specific company you are looking for, please let me know, so that I can contact them.

Companies might change the ingredients of their products  over time; if they do offer an ingredients list to their products, please cross-check. Should there be any discrepancies, please let me know.

I started my compendium in spring 2017; if you type the name of a company into the search box, you can find the blog entry in which I introduced the information of the company. This can give you an estimate about how old the information is.

In future, I will note the time I last updated each companies’ list here in the compendium.

Canson                                        status: May, 2017

although their papers do not contain animal derivatives with the exception of Mi Teintes and Ingres Vidalon, they do not now about the glue and packaging and several dyes get tested on rabbits.

So Canson is neither completely vegan nor is it cruelty-free.
