Let’s face it, being Vegan is hard – especially if you depend quite a lot on packaged foods and products. Vegan Products don’t carry special markings as brands aren’t mandated to get their products certified to be Vegan.
Vegetarians have a neat shortcut where they just look for the green dot. However, as Vegans, we often need to spend hours reading through the ingredients list of product after product before tossing it into our shopping basket. When it comes to cosmetics and other types of products, it becomes a whole lot more difficult to decide if a product is Vegan or not.
We’ve been there and felt the pain. So have several thousands before us.
The good news is that there’s a bunch of valuable scattered information and lists about vegan products and brands that are already available online.
These include Vegan Facebook Groups, Whatsapp groups, forum posts, blog articles, youtube videos and other online sources. Constantly saving these posts, screenshoting them for later use and then searching everywhere but not being able to find these old saved posts was a pain by itself.
That’s why we decided to put together this ultimate vegan products available in India list that will be constantly updated on a regular basis. We highly recommend you bookmark this page, send it to your WhatsApp Group and star the message or even better, print a copy to have it handy when you go shopping!
