Is Synthetic Beeswax Vegan?

Is Synthetic Beeswax Vegan?

Synthetic beeswax is being seen more and more often on ingredient lists for cosmetics.  Like most who use vegan-friendly products, I thought that synthetic beeswax didn’t contain any animal ingredients. According to EWG, “synthetic beeswax is a wax synthetically derived to be generally indistinguishable from natural beeswax with regard to composition and properties.” But is synthetic beeswax vegan? Recently it’s come to my attention that this may not be the case.

In this post, I share what I have learned about synthetic beeswax so that we can all be better-educated consumers and make better choices about our product ingredients.

Grove Collaborative Haul

I tend to order a lot of household and beauty items online. Don’t we all? Online shopping is so quick and easy. A few weeks ago I placed my first order with Grove Collaborative after hearing about them on Facebook and wanted to share my order with you. This video features household items, but they do carry some beauty and personal care brands. It’s great to see Seventh Generation, Preserve, Acure Organics, Yes To, and more cruelty-free brands available in one place.

Lotus Wei Inner Peace Serum Review

Lotus Wei Inner Peace Serum Review

I was introduced to Lotus Wei some time ago and have been able to try a few of their serums. The Lotus Wei Inner Peace Serum is one that I have been using for some time and recently realized that I had never talked about here on Logical Harmony. What I love about the Lotus Wei serums is that they mix the benefits of skin care with the benefits of aromatherapy. I love that well-rounded approach.

Claims: “Organic regenerative serum made from calendula-infused safflower oil, vitamin E, and five hand-collected flower essences, a gemstone essence, and organic essential oils. Experience deep peace, calm, confidence, comfort + contentment; strength + assuredness during times of high-stress. Dissolves high levels of stress & overwhelm; feeling a lack of support; nervousness, fear, lack of confidence, nervous about public speaking.”
