Standout Vegan Beauty Products from Mineral Fusion

We love finding vegan and cruelty-free companies that we can easily and conveniently buy from. Mineral Fusion is one of those companies we were thrilled to find, because it makes a nice range of products that you can find at most Whole Foods Markets and other health markets (where you can also shop for vegan and cruelty-free food). Mineral Fusion’s makeup, skincare products, and nail polishes (and polish removers) are amazing because they keep animals safe, are made with natural ingredients for your good health, and cost about the same or less as the most well-known high-end beauty and skin care products. The following are some of the Mineral Fusion products that we’re loving right now and that we think stand out among the sea of makeup and skincare products on the market right now: Continue reading [...]
