Laundry Products

Asda

Their eco range is clearly labelled vegan.

Aldi

The eco range is not sold all the time. The more we ask for it, they might consider selling it all the time. Includes toilet cleaner and washing up liquid. Don’t see why they went to the trouble of having a made for Aldi label if they are not going to sell it all year. There own brand standard range is not tested on animals, but contains animal ingredients, so unfortunately is not vegan.

Co-op

If it says ‘no animal testing’ AND ‘no animal ingredients’, it’s vegan. The only household products I have found that are not animal-friendly are the fabric conditioners, but do double check everything just in case.

Dri-Pak Ltd

12/08/15 “Our products are suitable for vegans. The old original flakes were not as they were made from tallow but we closed the flake plant last December and the new Liquid Flakes are made from sunflower oil
Dri-Pak have never tested products or ingredients on animals or commissioned a third party to carry out tests. Ingredients have not been tested on animals by our suppliers since 1998. Yes we do pack Wilko liquid soap flakes and their soda. We supply Wilko with soda crystals, liquid soda, liquid soap flakes, white vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, dishwasher salt and water softener in powder and tablet form. The only difference between Wilko label is the label all production processes and ingredients are the same and from the same sources.”

They have a wide range of cleaning products and I think they are all vegan.

Since a change of testing policy in 2017 we can now list them. Most products are vegan. I think its only one of the washing up liquids that contains whey.
