Vegan & Cruelty Free - The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is Pairfum Vegan? Cruelty Free?
All your questions answered about every aspect 'Vegan' and 'Cruelty Free' in the Pairfum Collection.
All of Pairfum London's products are 100% Vegan, with one exception: Sachet.
The Pairfum Scented Sachet uses a honeycomb foundation sheet which is made from from pure beeswax only. Beeswax is regarded as an animal product.
We subscribe to the common definition for Vegan.
We can confirm that all of our products are Cruelty Free and subscribe to its common definition.
'Cruelty Free' and 'Vegan' mean two different things!
A product is defined as 'vegan' when it does not contain any animal products or animal-derived ingredients / rawmaterials.
To avoid any doubt, this definition describes the ingredients and not the production process. It is entirely possible that a 'vegan' product was tested on animals!
On the other hand, 'cruelty-free' typically refers to the ingredients, rawmaterials, components and final product NOT having been tested on animals. This definition refers to the 'testing' and not the ingredients.
Consequently, it is possible that a cruelty-free product contains ingredients that are NOT vegan.
The following are or can be animal derived ingredients: honey, beeswax, lanolin, talcum powder, gelatin or collagen.
We would actually like to go a step further: in our opinion the definition of 'cruelty-free' should also include that no animals were used during the production process of the product. In many 3rd world countries, animals are still being abused during the transport or manufacturing of products.
Enjoy the Compliments for Your Fragrance.
