The majority of Izanagi products are vegan, with the exception of certain formulas that contain lanolin and beeswax.

Do the products contain alcohol?

Not all alcohols are created equal, and not all are bad for the skin – each ingredient in Izanagi formulas has been carefully evaluated to ensure it is safe to use.

Please check the ingredient list for each product to find out it contains alcohol and/or alcohol derivatives.
