Coliro : „Alle Inhaltsstoffe der Perlglanzfarben sind frei von tierischen Bestandteilen und sind nach Angaben unserer Zulieferer der Inhaltsstoffe vegan und frei von Tierversuchen. Die Farben bestehen nur aus Mica (ein Pigment aus Stein gewonnen), Gummi Arabicum (ein rein pflanzlicher Bestandteil), und winzigen Mengen von Hilfsstoffen, die nach Herstellerangaben vegan sind. Im Herstellprozess selbst werden auch keine tierischen Hilfsmittel verwendet.“
Coliro: All materials used in Pearl Colors are free of animal components/derivatives and according to our ingredients suppliers vegan friendly and cruelty free. The colors consist only of mica (pigment made out of stone), Gum Arabic (purely plant based), and small amounts of additives, which are vegan according to the manufacturer. No animal derived
additives are used in the manufacturing process.
Welcome to veganartstuff. I am Ansho, and these are my vegan-friendly and cruelty-free criteria, which have to apply to the products and companies:
A product can be considered vegan, if the entire product itself does not contain animal ingredients, byproducts/ derivatives and none of those are used in the manufacturing process, e.g. the use of animal derived oils and fats in surfactants for the dispersion of pigments. The manufacturer does not test on animals or commissions other parties to do so, none of their parent and sister companies or any other partners test on animals or commission animal testing, none of their raw material suppliers and subsuppliers test on animals or commission animal testing, if there are other options. (According to the European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, animal testing has to be avoided if it is possible and has the goal to minimize animal testing for REACH. Lastly, there is no animal testing abroad for the manufacturer’s products to be sold abroad.) By “entire product”, all parts of the product are meant, e.g. the ink and its jar it is contained in, the body and nibs of a marker, a pencil’s wooden body as well as lacquer/ print on it.
I will keep contacting art supply companies to amass product information for this compendium and build it up more and more over time, so animal respecting art lovers will have an overview of suitable art supplies.
