One ingredient Dove frequently uses that could come from animal sources is glycerin, a type of sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in animals, plants, and petroleum.
We only pick ingredients that do a job like no other and that we have individually assessed to be safe. We find natural ingredients that offer the levels of care for skin and hair which you expect from a Dove product.
