Any truth that this is not a vegan product ?
Beeswax is used as a binding agent in many incents.
oh please not Nag Champa or Super hit! please no!!!
I'll curse the day when I find out nag champa isn't vegan. Cause if it isn't ::shakes fist::.
old thread but since we have a lot of "rededicaters" here,
many non US brands use the perfectly logical sunstance of dung.
so: if you don't have a problem with dried poop as the holder for your scent, light up!
It's says in my little book that "incense MAY contain gelatine or other animal substance as a binder", I'd say ask the product maker but it's a bit difficult when Nag Champa (love it!) is made in India...
Indian is likely to be a dhoop (dung) based product. However, it is gathered, not a contained animal situation. so , a very personal calls.
I wouldn't see any problem with dungbased products. We use it in compost.
I doubt theres cruelty involved in the process.
I've read that animal-compost-grown-foods is beginning to be a dilemma for some vegans, as alot of vegans see it, anything that animals have been used to produce in is wrong. I've gone as far as cutting out honey but I don't think I'm gonna go that far...
I'm gonna cut out honey too, but I just don't see the problem with dung personally.
Until I hear that they are injecting cows with something to make them SHIT more... it doesn't bother me
I think thats going way to far... in using nothing that animals produce. If it harms the animal, then yes thats fine dont use it. But If an animal goes and takes a random shit and some guy comes and picks it up and takes it to his incense making place then what harm is in that, the animal isnt hurt, he doesnt care about his shit. If people wanted to use my shit to make incense I would give it to them.
