Since our humble beginnings in 2005, White Witch® has held the ethics of veganism close to our hearts. "Harm None" being our motto; helping others to make the best choices in skincare while keeping the planet safe; going 100% vegan just felt like the right thing to do.
It only took a few small changes and we were there. I'm not saying it wasn't a challenge to make the shift, it definitely was.
After hours of research and sourcing to find some new organically certified and ethically harvested ingredients we were ready.
The most interesting replacement we made was: Honey with lemon balm.
'Honey Plant' or "Bee Balm" is another name for Lemon Balm, so called because of it's ability to attract bees.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) is a super herb for skin. It was believed by the Greeks to be the Elixir of Life for good reason. The herb touts antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties as well as being full of antioxidants, tannins and flavonoids. It made sense that it would be perfect substitute for honey and it is.
We hope you will enjoy the changes that we made. It really does feel much better now. White Witch® is registered with The Vegan Society.
