You will be no more with the easy to understand VeganCheck Grades.
VeganCheck Grades is a rating system for vegan products, that assigns one of six grades to a product.
The products with a VeganCheck Grade are evaluated by a small team of volunteers and categorized according to their characteristics.
Only the best of the best products get a Grade A+! Not only has the product to be vegan and cruelty-free, but it also can not cotain palm-oil, has to be produced carbon-neutral and with renewable energies, has to have a fair price and much more. A product rated A+ is recommended to buy!
Grade A is the second highest grade and everything from Grade A+ applies, except for the fair price, the usage of renewable energies and an indipendent laboratory analysis if it is a supplement or suppelemental product (e.g. protein shakes). A product rated A is recommended to buy!
Grade B still has high standards, such as not made with palm-oil, no animal-cruelty, the manufacturer is not associated with any other harmful actions, good nutritional value if applicable (foods), proven health-claims if applicable (food and beauty) and proven effect if applicable (beauty). A product rated B is recommended to buy!
Grade C is still an average score. The product has to be made with at least sustainable palm-oil, has to have a good nutritional value if applicable (foods), has to have proven health-claims if applicable (food and beauty) and has to have a proven effect if applicable (beauty). Depending on your standards, you should consider if you want to buy a product rated C.
Grade D is the worst grade a product can get, besides "Not eligible". Products rated with D have to have proven health-claims if applicable (food and beauty) and a proven effect if applicable (beauty). You should generelly consider a better rated option to buy.
All other products are not eligible for evaluation and are not recommended for purchase.
