Naked – Intensive Care Conditioner

Hej på er!

För ett tag sedan tipsade fina Anna om märket Naked 🙂 . Naked har många veganvänliga produkter och på baksidan står det oftast tydligt om produkten är helt vegansk eller ej. Gillar det!
Så här skriver de om ingredienser:

Naked contains no animal derived ingredients so is suitable for vegetarians.

A few products do contain animal by-products i.e. milk, honey and beeswax but we do highlight these as not suitable for Vegans on our published ingredients lists on our website.We also don’t believe in testing on Bambi, Lassie, Skippy or any other animal – not any of our ingredients, not our final product (although our founder’s dog once had an Angelica bubble bath courtesy of her kids!) We operate a Fixed Cut Off policy dating from 2000.

De här produkterna är INTE veganska:

We’re a friendly bunch ourselves so we try to ensure this is reflected in our products. All our products are suitable for vegetarians and most are vegan friendly. The products that are not suitable for vegans are:

  • Coco de Mer Body Butter
  • Smooth Silky Shampoo
  • Shine Hydrating Shampoo
  • Shine Hydrating Conditioner
  • Colour Protection Conditioner
  • Volume Body Building Conditioner
  • Heat Defender Heat Protection Spray
  • Mama Stretch Mark Cream

Fixed cut off date från år 2000 innebär att de inte köpt djurtestade ingredienser sedan år 2000. Ni kan läsa mer om det här. Så här skriver de också om varför de inte är märkta med “Leaping Bunny”-loggan:

The BUAV (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) charge a fee to use the bunny logo and this is quite considerable for a small brand like Naked. We are proud to offer natural products at affordable prices, and we never test on animals.

Naked använder tyvärr Palmolja och skriver så här om det:

Palm oil and palm oil derivatives are extremely common ingredients in toiletries, in fact they are almost impossible to avoid. Everyone uses it, from the big guys to the little guys. Naked recognises that the cultivation of Palm oil can have an environmental impact on eco-sensitive areas. Our suppliers are working with The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) which enables manufacturers to purchase ‘palm oil certificates’ for sustainable, responsibly sourced palm oil or ‘green palm’. As manufacturers generally purchase ingredients which contain palm oil, they may not have traceability on where the oil is from. The RSPO provides a way that manufacturers can ‘offset’ the purchase of other palm oils and contribute to the work of the RSPO in promoting sustainability.We are delighted to confirm that in partnership with our key suppliers, Naked has purchased green palm certificates to offset more than 12 months of our requirements for palm oil in our products.This is a small step, but we think it’s in the right direction!

Med andra ord så köper de “grön” och vänligare palmolja, men problemet är att palmolja egentligen aldrig är bra för miljön. Bra att veta dock!

Deras produkter finns att köpa på Apotek Hjärtat, vilket är kul eftersom det är mer lättillgängligt! Jag har nu testat deras Intensive Care Conditioner som är veganvänlig och den passar även med balsammetoden. Jag tycker att balsamet var bra, gav fukt till håret och funkade även bra som tvättbalsam! Produkterna kostar inte mycket heller och balsamet kostar 69 kr 🙂 .

Hi guys!

A while back gorgeous Anna told me about Naked 🙂 . Naked has a lot of vegan friendly products and it’s clearly written on the back of the products if it’s suitable for vegans or not. Great!
This is what they say about their ingredients:  

Naked contains no animal derived ingredients so is suitable for vegetarians.

A few products do contain animal by-products i.e. milk, honey and beeswax but we do highlight these as not suitable for Vegans on our published ingredients lists on our website.We also don’t believe in testing on Bambi, Lassie, Skippy or any other animal – not any of our ingredients, not our final product (although our founder’s dog once had an Angelica bubble bath courtesy of her kids!)

These products are NOT vegan:

  • Mama Stretch Mark Cream

Fixed cut off policy from 2000 means that they haven’t bought any animal tested ingredients since the year 2000. You can read more about the Fixed cut off date policy here. This is what they say about why they’re not branded with the “Leaping Bunny” logo:

Unfortunately Naked uses ingredients derived from palm oil, this is what they say about it:

Palm oil and palm oil derivatives are extremely common ingredients in toiletries, in fact they are almost impossible to avoid. Everyone uses it, from the big guys to the little guys.

In other words, they only buy “green” palm oil. The problem is that palm oil can never be kind to the environment. But it’s good to know.

Their products are pretty easy to find in Sweden and are sold at the pharmacies “Apotek Hjärtat” (with a heart logo). I’ve tried their Intensive Care Conditioner which is vegan friendly and you can also use it as a washing conditioner if you’re into “no poo” (no shampoo). I like this conditioner; it’s moisurizing without being too heavy and also works well as a washing conditioner! 🙂
