Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly Products
All of our products are 100% vegetarian. We continually strive for the finest possible formulations with superior efficacy and optimum benefits. We offer a unique collection of quality personal care products for consumers seeking natural, organic and cruelty-free ingredient alternatives within the vegetarian ethic.
Our natural ingredients, including vegetable and nut oils, plant waxes, herbal extracts and pure essential oils, are derived from plant sources, which we know are safe, effective and animal friendly. We reject all cruelly obtained animal ingredients, such as musk, castoreum and cochineal (carmine) and never use meat and fishing industry by-products, such as gelatin, tallow, collagen, elastin, squalene (Zia uses the alternative ‘squalane’ from olives) and others.
While the vegetarian ethic allows for the use of humanely derived milk, honey, beeswax and lanolin, only a very limited number of our products contain these ingredients. Zia Natural Skincare makes every attempt to offer a full range of quality personal care products that can meet and exceed strict vegan standards, but the following products do not meet vegan guidelines because of one or more ingredients listed below:
- 15 Minute Face Lift contains: Albumin (from egg white)
- Apple Refining Mask contains: Nonfat Dry Milk
- Citrus Night Time Reversal contains: Buttermilk Powder
- Fresh Papaya Enzyme Mask contains: Honey, Beeswax
- Pumpkin Exfoliating Mask contains: Nonfat Dry Milk, Honey
- Seaweed Lift Serum contains: Honey
- Super Moisturizing Mask contains: Honey
- Ultimate Age Defying Mask contains: Albumin (from egg white)
- Ultimate "C" Serum contains: Bee Pollen Extract
Respecting All Earth’s Living Creatures.
At Zia, it’s a core philosophy to provide effective products that are animal friendly and cruelty free. We believe that luxury skin care need not inflict harm on any living creatures and refuse to test on animals, nor do we ask others to do so for us. We reject the use of all cruelly derived animal ingredients, such as carmine and cochineal, and insist that all of our suppliers provide proof that ingredients they supply are not tested on animals.
Zia is proud to be a part of The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program. Internationally recognized, the Leaping Bunny Logo is for companies achieving the cruelty-free standard for producing cosmetic, personal care and household products. The Leaping Bunny Program provides the best assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or suppliers.
