Giovanni Vegan Product List

Giovanni is certified cruelty-free by both Leaping Bunny and PETA and I’m so happy to confirm that almost all of their products are vegan-friendly and do not contain any animal ingredients or by-products.

Giovanni is most notably known for their haircare products but they also have an extensive product line for both face and body care products. Giovanni carries cruelty-free and vegan face and body wash, lotions, scrubs, and even shaving cream.

I recently emailed the company to confirm if the statement found on their website’s FAQ about whether their products are vegan is up-to-date and received the following response:

Dear Vicky,ย 

Thank you for your interest in Giovanniยฎ products.

The below statement is up to date and accurate.

All our products are vegan except our Magnetic shampoo, conditioner, power treatment, styling gel and styling wax which contains lactoferrin, and our Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub which contains honey.

Basically, in addition to their hot chocolate sugar body scrub, everything from their Magnetic line isย not vegan and should be avoided. You can easily tell their Magnetic haircare products from the rest of the products because the packaging and containers are red.

From the date of this post, everything else from Giovanni is considered vegan-friendly! I am really looking forward to trying their Wellness System haircare products!

Have you tried any of Giovanni’s products before or do you have any recommendations?

    Hi Vicky — I bought a tube of Giovanni’s 2chic conditioner a couple weeks ago from the grocery store because I’ve used some of their products before and am familiar with the vegan statement on their website. I took a closer look at the conditioner when I got home (I never remember to bring my reading glasses to the grocery store) and it says, “100% vegetarian.” Hmmm. I emailed them to ask what is the difference between vegan and vegetarian according to them, and said I was familiar with their vegan statement. I haven’t heard back yet and will write to them again. When I do get an answer, I’ll let you know what they say. I just found your blog today and love it! Am following you on FB. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kate

      Hey Kate! So glad to hear you found my blog! =) Yah, I’ve noticed the same thing that Giovanni products are labelled as “100% vegetarian” although the ingredients look like they are also vegan.

      I tracked down my old email inquiry to them and I brought up the same issue but worded it differently than you did and they reassured me that everything of theirs was vegan except their magnetic line. But I’m actually interested in what they will say to your question about how they define the difference between vegan and vegetarian. Please let me know what they end up saying! =) and as always, feel free to send any other inquiries directly to me at vicky@ethicalelephant.com

      Thanks Kate for reading! =)

        Vicky,

        For the record, “vegan” is a trademarked term owned by a vegan society somewhere. Is it possible that some companies could spring for the term “vegetarian” over “vegan” in order to avoid paying a royalty?

          Hey Matt,

          I didn’t know you could trademark a term like “vegan”. I know that the Vegan Society first coined and made up the the term “vegan” but I don’t believe they own the rights to it.

          Is it possible that you mean Vegan Society has a “vegan trademark logo” with the sunflower coming out of the “V”? I know that you can trademark logos.

          If you have any sources that say Vegan Society has trademarked the term “vegan”, I’d love to look into it =)

      I also would like to know why they don’t say Vegan on their product vs. them saying vegetarian, as there is a difference. I would think companies would want to put Vegan down if their product truly is.

What do you think?
