Natio – Mostly Vegan Skin Care, Makeup, Personal Care & Fragrances

Natio have a reasonable range of fantastic vegan friendly products that you can find at just about any Australian retail store or chemist – making them a very accessible product range!  Most of Natio’s range is vegan but there are a few exceptions – such as the lip colour line, some makeup and some skin care products.  Read on for details and to see what they say about their vegan status;

“Natio is accredited by Choose Cruelty Free as seen at www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au. The women’s and men’s skin care, body care and eau de toilette ranges are mostly free of animal by-products. However, vegans please note the Restore 10 Minute Moisturising Mask, Wellness Exfoliating Body Bar, Wellness Bath & Shower Gel, Aromatherapy Skin Nutrition Body Lotion, Orange Blossom Hand Wash and Aromatherapy Paw Paw Lip Balm contain honey and/or beeswax.

Natio’s makeup and nail polish range is also mostly free from animal by-products. However, vegans please note some of our lip products may contain lanolin or beeswax and the Natio Lip Colour in Pretty, Blusher in Rouge Glow, Pressed Powder Bronzer & Enhancer, Mechanical Long Lasting Eye Liner in Graphite and some of our eyeshadows contain carmine. The Cream to Powder Foundation, Lash Definition Mascara, Dramatic Lashes Mascara and the Brow Kit contain beeswax.

You will be pleased to know that Natio’s makeup brushes are made with synthetic hair and our mascara wands are made of synthetic fibres.

Please note this may not be a comprehensive list. To check whether a product is vegan friendly, we always recommend you refer to the ingredient listing on our website.

All ingredients are detailed on our website, so you can quickly see which of our products are vegan friendly. Simply look up the product and click the “All Ingredients” tab. Alternatively, refer to ingredients lists on product packaging and/or attached to the side of the Natio display stand at your local pharmacy or department store. – See more at: http://www.natio.com.au/faqs#sthash.lP0KoNYo.dpuf”

So, it looks like Natio has added a fair few products to their non vegan list since I originally posted this in 2012. Please be sure to take note of the non vegan products listed above.  The rest of Natio’s product lines still look great – here are the categories of products they offer:

For more information on Natio products and where to buy them – visit Natio.com.au

* unfortunately, Natio does use Palm Oil derivatives in some of their products.  They claim to obtain their palm oil from sustainable sources but as most of us know, “sustainable palm oil” is a misnomer.  If you like to avoid Palm Oil, Natio may not be a good brand for you.
