Why is F&F proudly Carmine-free?
Apart from not wanting to consume dead bugs, we don’t believe that any animal — big or small — should lose its life to produce goods for us. Flora & Fauna is proudly vegan and cruelty-free; the use of Carmine in any cosmetics, or anything else, does not align with our ethics and core values.
If you choose to lead a vegan lifestyle, you may want to check the labels on your makeup to see if any products contain Carmine. Cosmetic companies don't make it easy as they aren't going to write bugs in the ingredients! Also, some products labelled as vegan contain carmine so always best to check - we've seen lots of mislabelling.
Luckily, we don’t have to use dead bugs to produce vibrant colours in our makeup. Here at F&F, we have a broad range of makeup that is 100% carmine-free.
