Nearly all of the formulas at veologē are vegan. However, our Enzyme Exfoliator, Organic Coconut Cleansing Milk and Honey Lip Balm contain either honey and/or beeswax due to its antibacterial, clarifying and antioxidant properties, making it helpful in treating skin irritation.
Since ethical/safe sourcing is very important to us, we wanted to share a little information directly from Glory Bee, the company that we have partnered with to ensure that our honey is harvested in the safest and most ethical way possible.
“The safe and ethical treatment of bees is of the utmost importance at GloryBee. To ensure this we require our honey suppliers to fill out documentation and affidavits to validate that their extraction and beekeeping practices are ethical and natural. We perform the following testing on our honeys. Some are random and some are specific to the origin.
Sugar profile analysis is performed to identify if foreign sugars were present in the honey which would imply adulteration or illegal feeding. This test also helps to ensure the sugar sources are from nectar producing plants.
Pollen analysis is performed to identify origin and that the pollen is a natural source for the bees in that region.
- Antibiotic analysis is performed to ensure no illegal antibiotics are being used. As a company of beekeepers, founded by beekeepers, GloryBee is proud to stand behind the ethical treatment of the bees who supply our honey."
