With regards to our Augeo bases here is the direct response from Solvay (The manufacturer of Augeo).
For the vegan claim - Augeo Crystal is produced from a grade of glycerine that is guaranteed to be animal trace free and Solvay have registered the product with the Vegan Society, the listing can be seen on their website - https://www.vegansociety.com/search/products/s
For the cruelty-free claim – You would have to look into how the product fits into your own definition of cruelty-free. The animal testing that is often quoted for Augeo Clean Multi is toxicity testing conducted on the main component, 2,2-Dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-methanol, for REACH registration in the EU. This testing was requested by the regulatory body in charge of REACH, ECHA, and was necessary to market Augeo into Europe. Solvay apply the 3R Principles (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) to avoid animal testing when possible, however there are some circumstances when alternative scientific methods aren’t suitable. Most chemicals that are REACH registered in Europe will have been animal tested as some point in the past. It’s just the case that because Augeo (2,2-Dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-methanol) is fairly modern chemical designed as a green replacement to traditional solvents, there was no existing toxicity data so testing has been carried out more recently than for some other chemicals on the market. Solvay have worked with Cruelty Free International to clarify the animal testing status of the chemical and were informed that Augeo Crystal / Clean Multi would be suitable for use in Leaping Bunny certified products where the company uses a fixed cut-off date of 1st May 2015 onwards.
