Why animal products? What is Cruelty Free?
There is sometimes a push against using animal products of any kind in products. Why do we incorporate Goat’s Milk, Beeswax and Silk in many products? Perhaps you are wondering, what is the difference between “cruelty free” and non cruelty free?
Why animal products?
The use of animal products must be done with good stewardship in mind. We are to care for the life of animals and not be cruel. But that doesn’t mean not use products that come from animals. The fact of the matter is animal products are often the very best choice in certain circumstances, and most do not interfere in any way with the natural life of the animal.
The only exception to that in the products we use is Tallow. This soap does not contain Tallow. A few do because it is so close to human skin it is a great soap ingredient and great for troubled skin.
A commonly misunderstood animal ingredient is Lanolin. It is sometimes confused as an animal fat, when in fact it comes from the wool of the sheep. Is sheering a sheep cruel? No! Actually not sheering the sheep would be cruel to the animal, as the wool is heavy and would be matted. The use of animal products is a complicated matter at best. We aim for good stewardship in everything here, including the judicious use of animal products. However, if you have questions or concerns please feel free to email us your questions!
Clothing requires the use of regular silk as it has to have long fibers to weave into cloth. “Cruelty Free” silk, however, is gathered in forests after the insects emerge from the cocoon. The hole God’s little creature leaves as it eats its way out of the cocoon, by nature, cuts the long silk thread, making it unusable for clothing. However, that makes it perfectly usable in cosmetics, as it is incorporated in tiny particles.
Why Cruelty Free?
Here at Spero Soaps, it’s a matter of good stewardship. It is a good use of our natural resources to use what God provides for us! However, when “cruelty free” is used, the insects live and produce offspring. Their offspring will then produce more silk.
We are called to be good stewards of the earth. Good stewardship does involve making sure whatever you are farming does not suffer needlessly at your hands.
