Dear Philip,

Do you test your products on animals?

ISSUE: Are Philip B. Products Vegan?

September 21, 2009 | No Animal Testing?, Special Cases

Dear Philip,

Are any of your products vegan –no animal by-products, not tested on animals?

Mainly, yes. We only use animal-derived ingredients in four of our products: Crème of the Crop Original Formula, which contains acetylated lanolin oil and lanolin alcohol. (Our new version, Crème of the Crop Lite, does not). The Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo contains a very low percentage of Tallowtrimonium Chloride. Meanwhile, our Thai Tea Mind & Body Wash and Chai Latte Soul & Body Wash do contain honey – a natural humectant that softens and hydrates skin like nothing else. We are, as we’ve mentioned before, very grateful to the bees.

Look for Philip B® products at fine retailers, salons & spas worldwide.
