Our Favorite Vegan Facial Cleansers

We’ve tried a lot of vegan facial cleansers and we’ve loved quite a bit of them. But, some of the products stand out for us as superior to the others. Often it’s because of the scent and sometimes it’s because of the texture of the cleanser. Once in a while, we come across a face soap that foams up nicely, and one that leaves our skin feeling super clean and hydrated. We love milky (not animal milk, no way!) cleansers and foaming gel cleansers alike, so our favorites include both of these types of products.

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.

For many people, the process of shaving involves the use of many products, including a shaving cream, razors, brushes, and an after-shave oil or moisturizer.

3 Great All-Natural Vegan Soap Bars

A beautiful, and great-smelling, bar of soap can add so much joy to a bathroom or kitchen. We love having vegan and cruelty-free bar soaps in our soap dishes so much that, sometimes, we take up to 20 minutes examining the selection of aromatic and gorgeous bars in our local health store just to pick out the most perfect one. Usually, we find a handful of soaps that we could easily buy on the spot. So, we’ve found that what works best for us is simply choosing one that calls to us, either because of the scent or color (moisturizing ingredients). Then, we enjoy that bar until it’s a little sliver that we can’t handle anymore and set out to purchase another amazing one. Continue reading [...]

Pyur Vegan Skincare for Mamas and Babies

When it comes to choosing pure skincare for moms and babies, vegans sometimes face a challenge. There are not always tons of options for gentle and cruelty-free skincare for sensitive skin when we’re searching in retail stores. Which means soon-to-be, and current moms, often have to turn to online sources for vegan creams, washes, and treatments. Because this is what we’re use to, we went looking on the web for some vegan and cruelty-free products that mamas and their babies could feel good about using.

Natracare Feminine Hygiene Products

We’ve been thinking about feminine hygiene products lately because we were surprised to find out that many companies who make these products test them on animals. It’s beyond our imagination why a business would harm an animal in the process of making tampons and pads for women. We think it’s a no brainer that a company producing feminine hygiene products would create them out of safe ingredients, like certified organic cotton or other non-toxic materials, so that there would be no need to test for safety on animals.

In our search for a line of feminine hygiene products that we could use and still keep our ethics, we found Maxim.

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 [...]

NCLA Vegan Nail Polishes

Looking for some great vegan nail polishes? We were. We know its still winter where we live, and our toes are usually bundled up in our warmest boots.

Which means, we need to keep a stock of incredible vegan nail polishes in our bathroom. So, we thought we’d search for some cruelty-free polishes that come in a range of beautiful colors. Even though we already have a fair amount of vegan nail lacquers lining our shelves right now, it’s always fun to find a new shade and in our recent search we found many.

While you’re trying to get your child healthy, you can turn to the following vegan and cruelty-free products to soothe your little one’s skin. Continue reading [...]

Vegan and Cruelty-Free Bottom Balms for Babies

If you’ve ever tried to treat a baby’s diaper rash, you know that if you put the wrong product on it, things are going to get a lot more painful for your little one.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Vegan Nipple Butter

If you’ve ever breastfed, or tried to, you probably know the feeling of cracked, chaffed nipples. It’s one of pain, whenever clothes rub against the breasts or even if they’re just exposed to air. It’s a hurt that’s often worsened by water hitting the nipples in the shower or the continual sucking from baby. Even though mothers will usually live through any experience for their child, relief that can come to the nipples when breastfeeding is typically well-received. If you’re seeking comfort from sore nipples due to breastfeeding, we have a vegan and cruelty-free remedy that you may want to check out. We recently discovered Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Nipple Butter. This natural nipple balm is safe for babies and it brings mamas some much-needed healing. Continue reading [...]

Vegan Cuticle Creams

As you search for vegan beauty products, do you ever look for vegan cuticle cream? We love a good cuticle cream, but shamefully, they’re difficult to find in vegan versions. We think cuticle creams do a great job of moisturizing and loosening our cuticles so they can be clipped away for more attractive nails. So, we’re always thrilled to find cruelty-free options. 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 Stretch Mark Creams

Sometimes life is hard on a body. It presents twists and turns, ups and down, that come in the form of babies, extra weight gained due to stress, and even challenging growth spurts. We’re not saying that we would necessarily do without any of these experiences, because we know that with change comes great people, lessons, and moments. But, we do sometimes wish we could limit the lines on our bodies that serve as hash marks for various milestones in life. We’re perfectly content keeping mental tally marks beyond minimal markings. If you have a few stretch marks, as we do, that you’d like to see fade away even slightly, or if you’re anticipating a time in your life when stretch marks could turn your body into a permanent score card, you can use the following vegan stretch mark creams and oils. Continue reading [...]

Tarte Cosmetics Vegan Makeup

Tarte cosmetics began with one woman’s quest for vegan beauty products that were made with pure ingredients. Tarte owner and CEO, Maureen Kelly, wanted to find makeup that was gorgeous and effective, but that didn’t contain yucky, unhealthy ingredients. She searched many department stores and found a few vegan makeup offering clean products, but she was disappointed in the not-very-luxurious packaging of these items. She, like many other women, want their entire beauty experience to be beautiful, and she didn’t want to have to hide her makeup. Continue reading [...]

Vegan Makeup for Less than $10

We don’t want to let a budget stop you from getting your hands on vegan beauty products, so we put together a list of some amazing cruelty-free concealers and eyeshadows that will cost you less than $10 each. The products on our list do not contain any animal ingredients and they’re not made using animal testing. The companies that manufacture these cruelty-free products are able to make a commitment to animals’ rights while keeping prices reasonable. We think that more brands should do this. It’s horrible to hear about the dozens of makeup companies that are still testing on animals and using parts of their bodies in beauty products, especially when we know there is another way. Continue reading [...]

Super-Moisturizing Vegan Lip Balms for Winter

Does the winter weather have your lips in a perpetual state of dryness? It’s been doing numbers on our lips, which is why we looked for some super-moisturizing vegan lip balms to keep in our purse (or pocket) throughout the season. It’s no fun to have chapped lips. Especially when you’re trying to look pretty (with a nice vegan lipstick) at a holiday party or when you’re thinking about giving your sweetie a holiday smooch. Lips should be soft and supple and kissable. They shouldn’t hurt, and they shouldn’t be cracked and flaky. 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 [...]

Vegan and Organic Hand Creams

Hands are parts of the body that seem to need moisturizing on a constant basis. Maybe it’s because we wash them often or perhaps it’s due to the fact that they’re exposed to the elements more than other areas on our bodies.

Meow Meow Tweet

Meow Meow Tweet Vegan Skin Care

You can be pretty sure that a company loves animals if it calls itself Meow Meow Tweet. And, if it puts cute pictures of kitties and feathered friends on its product labels.

We love the whimsical nature, with a serious message, that’s displayed all over the Meow Meow Tweet packaging. We adore how precious little creatures are depicted just meowing and tweeting around, without a care in the world, because that’s what we wish for animal and bird friends. Meow Meow Tweet’s stance on veganism and kindness to animals is clear the minute you look at the brand’s soaps as well as its body care, facial care, and baby products.

5 Natural Vegan Oils for the Body You Should Know About

If you’re looking for natural, vegan skin care products, some of the best are pure essential oils. Essential oils are usually single-oil or multi-oil products that are just that: oil.

Mini At-Home Spa Treatment? Try These Vegan Cruety-Free Facial Peel Products

Sometimes it seems like the only way to get rid of old and damaged skin on the face is to give it a peel. But, many of the facial peels on the market are more damaging then effective. And, most of them contain animal ingredients or were tested on animals. So, often, instead of doing something good for the face, peels do great harm all around. We think that’s not so great. But, there’s hope for those of us who like to use a facial peel to perk up tired skin or get ride of skin spots. There are some amazing natural, and cruelty-free, facial peels that are available online or in some natural stores. Continue reading [...]

Top Vegan Deodorants for Men

Most men’s deodorants on the market not only contain extremely harmful ingredients for humans, they’re made in ways that hurt animals.

Cruelty-Free Beauty Brush

Cruelty-Free Beauty Brushes

Many people don’t know that beauty brushes sold to apply powder, blush, and eye shadow are often made with animal hair. Animals, as you probably know, didn’t willingly give up their hair to make a brush. It was taken from them and turned into a beauty brush, one that’s probably being touted as “the best” or better than one with synthetic bristles. We’re not too happy with this fact. We want to encourage you to choose synthetic options the next time you go shopping for makeup brushes. We would love for you to help us build up the market for cruelty-free beauty brushes, so that animals can keep their hair and we can benefit too. Continue reading [...]

Maureen Kelly Sells Formerly Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Company Tarte, to Non-Cruelty-Free Kose, Insults Consumers with Smoke and Mirrors

Tarte vegetarian and cruelty-free cosmetics is no longer cruelty-free after selling out to Kose Cosmetics. Hi, all of you cruelty-free fashionistas, Jess here. I'm a contributing writer to Vegetarian Beauty Products and I'm here because I'm upset. No, I'm furious. Tarte, one of our favorite cosmetic brands to review, has sold out to a bigger company, Kose comsetics, who still tests on animals. They then had the nerve to insult its consumers by trying to distance themselves from their new parent company by saying that Tarte will remain cruelty-free, as if consumers can't figure out that, any dollars that go to Tarte, will ultimately end up in the hands of animal-testing Kose.

Our 5 Favorite Cruelty-Free and Vegan Beauty Tools

We all know that makeup brushes are often made with animal fur, and so we have to be diligent to make sure that the brushes we buy are made of synthetic materials. But just because a beauty tool doesn't have animal fur, doesn't mean that it's cruelty-free. For instance, the Shu Uemura company is famous for, among many other beauty products, their eyelash curler, which has a cult following. But Shu Uemura is owned by L'Oreal, who still tests their products on animals in order to sell to the Chinese market. Luckily, there are many excellent beauty tools that don't come at the cost of compassion. Continue reading [...]

While we understand that the area of animal welfare is always a learning process, this illustrates how important it is to closely read the ingredients list of products you use, despite the claims made by the company.

What Vivisection Is and Its Use in the Cosmetic and Beauty Products Industry

Vivisection is a term that make many shudder, even if they do not know what it means. Vivisection is technically defined as procedures, such as surgical (minor and major) that are performed on living beings, for the purpose of performing experiments. While vivisection, or animal testing, is conducted for many purposes, such as medical procedures and pharmaceuticals, we will be focusing on the use of animal testing in personal care items, such as cosmetics, hygiene products and other general beauty products.

All About the Leaping Bunny Program

As the demand for cruelty-free products became more prevalent, there came an emerging need to create a consistent set of standards by which to measure if a product was in fact truly cruelty free (and we hasten to add that "cruelty free" does not necessarily mean vegan, or even vegetarian, but more on that later). In response to this need for organized standards, eight national animal welfare groups formed an alliance: the American Anti-Vivisection Society, the Animal Alliance of Canada, Beauty Without Cruelty, the Doris Day Animal League, the Humane Society of Canada, the Humane Society of the United States, the MSPCA Center for Laboratory Animal Welfare and the New England Ant-Vivisection Society.

All About Cruelty-free, Vegan and Vegetarian Certifications: What They Mean, and What They Don’t Mean

We write a lot about cruelty-free, vegan and vegetarian certifications when reviewing different beauty products. There are certainly plenty of certifying agencies out there, each one using different factors in determining who gets certified by them, and who doesn’t. While there are many certifying agencies that are well-known both internationally, and nationally, such as the Leaping Bunny program, and PETA’s well known list of cruelty-free companies, each one has standards that vary in strictness.

Gluten Free, Cruelty-Free, Vegan Red Apple Lipstick

GlamNatural Cruelty-Free, Gluten Free and Vegan Makeup

It is National Celiac Awareness Month, so we thought we’d celebrate it by featuring a cruelty-free, vegan makeup that is also gluten free. It stands to reason that those who are intolerant to ingested gluten also don’t want to have gluten on their bodies, but gluten is found as an ingredient in many commercial makeup lines. Even the cleanest, organic makeup can cause skin issues to someone with gluten intolerance if the makeup contains gluten ingredients! Continue reading [...]

Herban Cowboy: Vegan, Cruelty-Free Grooming Products for Men

We thought we’d take an opportunity to review some men’s products since we tend to focus so much on products that are mainly intended for women. As tough as vegan, cruelty-free products can be to find for women, they are even tougher to find for men. We were excited to find out about the Herban Cowboy company, devoted to vegan, cruelty-free products for men. Founders Luke and Lisa started the Herban Cowboy on just a few thousand dollars, working out of their log cabin on a dirt road. The entire line was created in their kitchen, with Luke and Lisa both bottling the products by hand. Continue reading [...]
