L.A. Girl Vegan Friendly

I have been in contact with L.A. Girl for about a month trying to figure out what products are vegan friendly. Through a series of responses, I am now able to provide a vegan list.

In my original email asking if they had vegan-friendly products, they responded that some animal derived ingredients are present in their products and if I wanted to know about specific products, to email them a list of products with their item numbers. After compiling a list and sending it to them, they did send me a list of ingredients for the products I asked about. However, some of the ingredients (such as glycerin) can be animal or plant derived.

I sent them another email asking if the following ingredients were plant or animal derived: glycerin, tribehenin, ethylhexlglycerin, tocopherol, fragrance (parfum), niacinamide, glyceryl tribehenate, and diisostearate. They responded saying that some of their products contained carmine and lanolin and to send a list of products I was interested in if I wanted the ingredients. Yea, that's not what I asked...

So I responded again saying that I am specifically interested in the ingredients listed above and whether or not they are plant or animal derived. To which they responded, yet again, to send a list of products and item numbers. For the second time, I sent them a list, but specifically stated what ingredient in each product I had a question about. Their response was to send me a list of ingredients for these products (again) and completely ignoring my question

Finally, I sent one last email stating that I already had the ingredients list and that I was trying to find out if certain ingredients were plant or animal derived. I asked if they could provide the information for the ingredients and sent them the list of questionable ingredients once more. This is when they assured me that these ingredients were synthetic or plant derived. I'm happy to hear this, but I wish it hadn't taken so much back and forth to receive this information. With that said, here is my list of vegan (and non) friendly items.

  4. Thank you so much for your time to make this list, it was so helpful! Wish there was a list like this on every cosmetics website. It would make shopping so much easier.
