We are proud to say that we stock and use only cruelty free and vegan friendly products within the Butterflies Essential salon, for both hair and beauty.
For us, its wasn’t ever about being shiny and jumping on the bandwagon. It was about making sure the salon is ethical in outlook.
We believe that we can be inclusive of everyone no matter what their views or belief. We believe cruelty free is the way forward.
Veganisms popularity can, in part, be attributed to the rise of Veganuary. Motivated by health, environment and animal welfare concerns, thousands pledge to start the new year following a vegan lifestyle.
For many, the Veganuary experience is so positive that they either become fully vegan or curb their use of non-vegan products.
Animal welfare charities such as Peta and Cruelty Free International have also hugely influenced our increasing interest in vegan beauty.
These charities campaigned for many years to bring about the ban on animal testing in Europe and continue to fight worldwide to end animal exploitation.
We are also currently making small but mighty changes in our makeup kit so by the end of 2020 all the make up we use on photo shoots, and our work as freelance makeup artists at weddings and events will also be cruelty free.
Butterflies will continue to be honest and transparent in how we work and what we believe: small positive changes can lead to significant positive results.
We use the Eleven range of vegan hair care products. These include shampoos, conditioners and styling products.
You can also buy these products direct from us so you can continue to have great hair from day 1. Have a look through the range that we stock and the great news is that many of these also come in useful travel sizes too:
