Ardent Goods is a fabulous company — family-owned, vegetarian, and cruelty-free. They utilize natural ingredients and sustainable packaging materials. Many of their offerings are vegan, and everything on their website is clearly marked and explained, so you know exactly what you’re getting. They offer a host of goodies, from kitchen towels to biscuit cutters, but we’re intrigued by their body care offerings.
Check out Ardent Goods’ website at www.ardentgoods.co. Their Hair and Body Shampoo ($19.00) is a versatile soap bar that cleanses both your tresses and your skin. It comes in two different scents — morning glory and moonflower. This item does contain goat’s milk, so it’s obviously not vegan. But the goat milk is sourced from a family farm where the goats are treated in a humane fashion. These bars are handcrafted, palm oil-free, and formulated with organic, fair trade ingredients.
The Naked Bar Solid Body Butter ($24.00) comes in a recyclable cardboard box. That’s it! No other materials to discard or reuse. This ultra-moisturizing balm is made from shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil, and essential oils. Due to the addition of beeswax, this offering isn’t vegan, either. But, like everything else this company offers, it is vegetarian, and made from pure ingredients that were never tested on animals! It comes in four different scents — jasmine, lavender, rose, and horchata. You might end up buying them all!
If you want a high-quality vegan offering, try the Coconut Lemongrass Vegan Soap ($8.00). It’s especially good for your hands, but can be used anywhere on your body. This soap works up a good lather, all without the use of parabens, synthetic fragrances, and artificial colors. The combined scents of coconut and lemongrass create about the most sensual, intoxicating aroma we can imagine! This item also utilizes minimal packaging — a simple brown wrapper, easy to recycle.
Due to Covid-19, Ardent Goods is offering free shipping with a minimum order of only $22.00! It should be a breeze to spend that amount, because this company has so much wonderful merchandise! Be sure to click on the “gifts” tab, for a vast array of presents for that special vegan or vegetarian, ecologically minded person on your list! You can purchase housewarming, baby, bridal shower, even sympathy gifts. We’re sure you’ll find at least a few items that you, your friends, and/or your family will enjoy. Such a delightful company — we’re glad we discovered it! You will be, too.
