About Us

"It took me 8 hours of research to find an animal-free medication for a patient. We needed to solve this."

Co-Founder & CEO Sachin A. Shah, PharmD, FACC, FAHA

VeganMed was founded in 2018 by Dr. Sachin A. Shah. He was inspired by the challenges he faced while helping patients find animal-free medications. These experiences led to the creation of VeganMed. We are a company dedicated to assisting consumers and healthcare providers in identifying medications, supplements, and other health products that are free from animal-derived ingredients.

Our Mission

We are on a mission to create a world where medications and supplements are free from animal-derived ingredients. 


Together, we strive to create a safer, kinder and more inclusive world. 


Safer because some people can have a life-threatening allergic reaction due to the animal-derived ingredients (e.g. alpha-gal allergy) in their medications.

Kinder because the use and abuse of animals is not needed to produce health products. Animal-free is better for the climate too!  

Inclusive because over 50% of the world has a religious or dietary reason for not consuming an animal-derived product; their voice should matter.   


We will achieve this mission by: 

  1. Certifying products as animal-free

  2. Informing consumers and empowering them to choose animal-free products only

Our Values

We believe the highest attainable standard of health is a fundamental right of every living being.

We believe in transparency and strive to provide clear and comprehensive information about product labeling.

We believe in providing the most  accurate and scientific information to empower and guide optimal health.

​We are committed to the inclusivity of  diverse communities, including but not limited to, individuals with dietary preferences, religious considerations, concerns for animal and environmental welfare, and those with health related limitations.

We believe in people over profit.
