Wines and lagers

Vegan wine

To complete the Christmas fun and games, why not indulge in a case of our vegan organic wine, cider or lager - or share with friends? We have a delicious sampler case, a fine wine selection, and a fruit wine case. Each contains 12 bottles. We also have organic sparkling cider and organic Pinkus special lager, not to mention shimmering champagne.

None of our drinks contains any animal products. See the online shop for our full list of available items.

Beauty Without Cruelty cosmetics - because they're worth it!

Beauty Without Cruelty cosmetics

We are delighted to bring you the complete range of Beauty Without Cruelty cosmetics, which are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Since 1998 no licences have been issued by the Home Office for testing cosmetics ingredients and products on animals in the UK. However, elsewhere in the world, cosmetic companies continue to test new concoctions on animals. These products can then be sold here. Labelling is often deliberately misleading and even products which claim to be 'not tested on animals' could fail the cruelty-free test. Although the finished product might not have been tested on animals, the individual ingredients may have been.

It's never been simpler to look gorgeous and keep your conscience clear! These prettily-packaged, fragrance-free products all carry the BUAV's Humane Cosmetics Standard 'bunny logo' - the only true guarantee that 'not tested on animals' means just that.

Please see the online shop for the complete range of products and colours. We regret that for reasons of hygiene, cosmetics and toiletries cannot be exchanged.

Make a splash

New vegan toiletries

If you're still stuck for a gift for a special person, then we have a wonderful new range of toiletries designed with men in mind, but which are also gorgeous for women.

  • Woodspice Shampoo and matching Woodspice Body Wash
    Both have a rich woody fragrance combined with bergamot, fennel and rosemary to create a spicy floral aroma of precious woods and oak moss.

  • The Amber Shampoo and Amber Body Wash
    A fresh citrus fragrance, combined with spicy herbs, cedar leaf and mint.

The body washes are suitable for bath or shower and contain witch-hazel, calendula and arnica extracts, while the shampoos contain rosemary extract and jojoba oil. All are kind and gentle to the skin. Body Wash £3.85, Shampoo £3.00.

Apples and Oranges CD

A different gift idea for all your animal-friendly friends is a new music CD by American singer Bob Pyle. This is a country-style mix of old-time string-band music and humorous lyrics, creating an album with a message of social relevance concerning the foods we eat. The 12 tracks include A Farewell to McDonald's, A World Made out of Spam, Petunia the Pig and Factory Style - which recounts the life of factory-farmed animals. These extremely catchy songs are full of wit and humour. A real treat. £11.75
