Vegan and Cruelty-Free Sunburn Remedies – Moisturizers and Mists

The weather has been warming up and the sun has been a bit more intense over the last month or so, which means we’ve had to watch how much time we spend outdoors.

Vegan Toothpaste Roundup

Did you know that some toothpaste isn’t vegan? It’s weird to think that toothpaste would contain animal ingredients or be tested on animals. But, it’s a fact that most conventional toothpastes do involve animals in their formulation in some way. Sometimes, these toothpastes contain glycerin from animal fat, which is unfortunate because this ingredient can easily be sourced from plants. Also, many of these toothpastes have flavorings that come from animals. Continue reading [...]

Are Your Razors Vegan?

Did you know that some razors are not vegan? We didn’t, until we started doing a bit of research on vegan and cruelty-free shaving products. If you’re currently shaving with a razor that has any kind of gel strip, or moisturizing, strip on it, your razor may not be vegan. Many of these razors’ strips contain animal ingredients or contain ingredients that are tested on animals. Some companies, like Gillette (a Proctor & Gamble company), sell razors that contain animal ingredients and ingredients tested on animals. Continue reading [...]

Vegan Dental Floss

Did you know that not all dental floss is vegan? We didn’t, up until a few years ago. It seems absurd to us that a dental floss would have animal products in it or be tested on animals. How do you even test dental floss on an animal? Forget it, we don’t want to know. We just want to hear about more companies that are making vegan and cruelty-free flosses. It seems easy enough to us to leave animals out of the dental floss equation. Their lives are more important than our flossing needs, and we can create floss that doesn’t have animals in it. Enough said. Continue reading [...]

Natural Vegan Mouthwashes

Vegans often find it hard to believe that a product one would think should be animal free actually isn’t. Many times, a product you’d assume was vegan and cruelty fee contains weird animal ingredients or it’s for some reason been tested animals. We ran into this situation when searching for mouthwash. We thought we’d find a lot of simple, animal-free solutions made with antibacterial and refreshing plant essences. These ingredients are all we thought was needed to keep the mouth fresh and clean. But, when it was time to buy our mouthwash, we saw less than a handful of suitable products for a vegan and compassionate person. We should mention that we were also looking for an all-natural mouthwash. But still, we were surprised at the lack of choices in our local store. It seems so silly to us to have to designate a mouthwash as vegan, but since we must, the following are the standout vegan products that you can buy in your local Whole Foods market. Continue reading [...]

Natural, Vegan, and Cruelty-Free Diaper Wipes

Finding an all-natural diaper wipe that’s gentle on your baby’s bottom is sometimes hard. Finding a natural baby wipe that’s also vegan, and cruelty-free, can be especially difficult. Babies’ skin is extremely sensitive, which means it makes sense to only put gentle, natural products on it. We wish this made sense to more companies. And, we wish that these companies realized that animals are also sensitive. Animals don’t like having their parts being used in products, like wipes, and they don’t want to be tested on so that a baby’s buns can be cleaned. Thankfully, there are some companies that make natural and vegan diaper wipes that keep everyone happy. We love them because they make babies’, animals’, and parents’ needs as a priority. We thought you might love them too. Continue reading [...]
vegan foot soak

Vegan Foot Soaks

Sometimes, it can seem like summer is the hardest season on feet. Summer begs one to either go barefoot or to wear flip-flops, which exposes feet and does a real number on them. But, when fall and winter come around, feet are bound up in boots and in closed-toe shoes. Which means they’re often neglected. So, if you’re like us, you may find that you’re in need of a good, comforting, and softening foot soak all year long. Thankfully, there are some amazing vegan and cruelty-free foot soaks out there that you can dip your feet into, so that all stress feet are under floats away. Continue reading [...]

Ask Aveda to Stop Supporting Cruelty to Roosters by the Feather Hair Extensions Industry

We were dismayed when the feather hair extension craze began. While we knew that the way that the feathers were harvested would likely fly under the radar for awhile, we also knew that it wouldn’t be long until the truth finally started to circulate. Many people mistakenly believe that the feathers fall naturally off of the bird, but sadly, this is just not true. Continue reading [...]

Five Natural Beauty Product Companies that are Owned by Big Corporations Who are not Cruelty Free or Environmentally Ethical

Did you know that it is not uncommon for natural beauty product companies to be owned by big corporations who are not cruelty free or environmentally ethical? According to the Nutrition Business Journal, consumers in the US spent over $8 billion on natural and organic personal care products in 2010, including vegan, cruelty-free beauty products. This constitutes a 6% increase in sales over the year before. Needless to say, large corporations have been sitting up and taking note of the fact that consumers are trending towards healthier and organic beauty products, and are quickly snapping up small natural beauty product companies to stake their claim in a portion of these profits. Continue reading [...]

Pirouette Professional Cruelty-Free, Vegan Makeup Brushes

We absolutely love it when we come across vegan, cruelty-free makeup brushes. We are often surprised when we find companies that boast about their vegan cosmetics, but then sell makeup brushes that contain animal fur. Many people believe that the fur is simply cut off of the animal, but in many cases it is fur that is considered too poor quality for clothing. In cases when it is simply trimmed off of the animal, such as horse hair tools, there is no reliable way of knowing the life that the animals lead. Continue reading [...]
