In 1990 L'Oreal stopped testing on animals, although they can't always confirm that ingredients used in their products are not and they clearly state this.

It's always good to do a little research.
Assumption is the mother of all fuck ups.

On another note why use the body shop anyway, animals or not the body shop has always tried to remove itself from the 'image of women' but still very much subscribes to the beauty myth.

The cool thing about Living Nature is that it's a New Zealand company. The preservatives in the cosmetics are derived from flax and plants, they aren't synthetic. On their ingredients list, they have all the fancy names but then they list in brackets what the ingredient actually is, ie; leptospermmum scoparium mel (manuka honey).
I started using their stuff when I got some free samples. I have exma-prone skin, and lots of stuff sets it off, but Living Nature stuff calms it down. They make a manuka honey bodylotion that is real good to put on your legs when you've just shaved them (helps stop shaving rash). They do a neat clay friction peal mask, and they also make one of the only black eyeliner's that I can actually wear without making my eyes itch.

I bet the owner of the company that supplys your overpriced net connection wears leather shoes.

You are funding his MURDER!

(in other words, you need to draw the line somwhere, and I see no reason why it couldn't be that you'll kill insects but not larger animals)

Well, yes. You do have to draw the line somewhere, I suppose. But if you use honey, you aren't vegan. That doesn't mean you're an evil person. It just means you're a person who uses animal products, so not a vegan...

who wrote the rulebook?
i'm so over the i'm more vegan than you thing
if you don't want to use honey thats fine - just own it for yourself
what simon said about panadol x2

SO ANYWAY

i know it is a bummer about living nature and honey thing as some people don't like to use honey (see above) BUT the laydee that sells the range came into our shop and told us all about it and said there is a nohoney range coming out which will include the lavender and lime conditioner of which i got a sample and used this morning and my god is it beautiful even on my bleach fucked splitends. '

PLUS - a tip for parents. The living nature nit oil and shampoo actually works.

Mel the trilogy range is amazing. The rosehip oil is the BEST thing for stretchmarks and scars.

That is what I was thinking. Technically you could be vegan and still wear leather and use skincare products with honey in.
I thought "vegan" meant "vegan diet", not "vegan lifestyle".
After all, there are people wno are vegan for health reasons, and not for animal welfare reasons.

Funny though.

I only consume honey, but because of that I have to call myself a vegetarian? ;)

vegan actually means being free of animal products period

being a vegan for health reasons means you're a vegetarian

mayas well be a flexitarian

Funny how you talk like you know me.

I was just cruising in my Beamer which I bought with my Dad's gold card the other day...oh...wait. :lol:

And, Switch Blade, the person who "wrote the rulebook" on veganism would be the person who coined the term, Donald Watson...

Aaaand, Simon, veganism is different from Straight Edge here in that Edge doesn't mean that you don't consume any drugs, period, whereas veganism means not eating or using any animal products. Edge means that you don't consume any narcotic drugs blah fucking blah.

I don't really care all that much, to be honest. This is pretty much just a semantic argument. Most people, including the man who coined the term vegan, see it as meaning no animal products, including honey in soap/shampoo. Having a vegan diet is not the same as being a vegan...

But, really, this doesn't matter all that much. I probably came across as a prick a little in my last post by speaking in such absolutes, but fuck it. The only thing we're arguing about is what a word means.

If someone is a proclaimed-vegan-who-eats-honey, well, I think that's a misuse of them term, but I'm not going to outright insult them for it. Their diet is still a whole lot more ethical in my eyes than an omnivore's...

some pharmaceutical companies website wrote:...Narcotics are a class of drugs also known as opiate analgesics...
...common narcotics include codeine...
...Narcotics work by preventing or blocking pain messages from reaching the brain...


hey cool, it's been a while since i've had opiates in my system. i had no idea i'd been "edge" all this time despite all the weed and alcohol and, um, the rest. Might have to draw some little X's on my hands before going to the pub tonight!

oh wait, maybe you just don't know shit about drugs and their classifications and think "narcotic" means illegal drugs and alcohol or something and i'm not "edge" after all... :cry: oh well, X's look silly anyway

Simon - Yeah, I agree with what you say about absolutism. I seem to recall reading interviews with Donald Watson in which he discussed honey as being non-vegan...could be wrong though.

Although I think that vegan does and should mean no animal products, including honey, I don't think that the simple meaning of a word is all that important. The underlying principles are of course far more important.

If I come across as arrogant or ignorant, I apologise.

I tend to take a very hard line on most semantic issues, which is really quite fucking pointless.

Yawn.
