Their eco range is clearly labelled vegan.
The eco range is not sold all the time. The more we ask for it, they might consider selling it all the time. Includes toilet cleaner and washing up liquid. Don’t see why they went to the trouble of having a made for Aldi label if they are not going to sell it all year. There own brand standard range is not tested on animals, but contains animal ingredients, so unfortunately is not vegan.
Their whole range is vegan. More pictures to follow
Sold via Ocado and many eco sites.
Great vegan range, available in Oxfam* stores and online).
If it says ‘no animal testing’ AND ‘no animal ingredients’, it’s vegan. The only household products I have found that are not animal-friendly are the fabric conditioners, but do double check everything just in case.
12/08/15 “Our products are suitable for vegans. The old original flakes were not as they were made from tallow but we closed the flake plant last December and the new Liquid Flakes are made from sunflower oil
Dri-Pak have never tested products or ingredients on animals or commissioned a third party to carry out tests. Ingredients have not been tested on animals by our suppliers since 1998. Yes we do pack Wilko liquid soap flakes and their soda. We supply Wilko with soda crystals, liquid soda, liquid soap flakes, white vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, dishwasher salt and water softener in powder and tablet form. The only difference between Wilko label is the label all production processes and ingredients are the same and from the same sources.”

Tesco expert naturally powered non biological laundry powder
“Our Tesco Expert Naturally Powered range is all vegan. Our other Fabric conditioners are not suitable for vegans. Our standard washing powders, gels and laundry capsules are indeed vegan friendly and have been confirmed as having no animal derivative in their manufacturing. (Our own brand value detergent powder, however, is the only detergent we produce that cannot be guaranteed vegan friendly)”
June 2016 – The conditioner may now be discontinued.

Dishwasher Products and Washing Up Liquid
They have a fully range of cleaning products including laundry, dishwaher tablets and washing up liquid. Their full range is vegan and they proudly advertise it. Mainly sold in bargain shops.
Dishwasher tablets too
They have a wide range of cleaning products and I think they are all vegan.
Since a change of testing policy in 2017 we can now list them. Most products are vegan. I think its only one of the washing up liquids that contains whey.
I think the whole Planet Clean range is vegan, not easily found though.
sold in Wilkinsons
For there cleaning products see their vegan list.

Labelled vegan on their website.
Hi. Have recently gone vegan in our house, this article was incredibly helpful. I just wanted to ask, I recently read an article where it said the Ariel washing up powder (Non Bio) is also vegan? Is there any confirmation on this? I also read Bold 2in1 may be vegan? Could someone shed some light on this?
Not just method Helen, Ecover too have sold out to SC Johnson. So both of these companies are now off my shopping list.
