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.
We usually need to apply cream to our hands at least 2 or 3 times a day. So, we went on the hunt for some vegan and cruelty-free hand creams that offered a lot of value for our dollar. We found some amazing ones. And guess what? We found vegan and cruelty-free hand creams that used organic plants as ingredients. Continue reading [...]

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. Oh, and photos of other furry friends too.
And, if it shows all of these animals joyfully playing together, getting along like everyone on earth should.

Most men’s deodorants on the market not only contain extremely harmful ingredients for humans, they’re made in ways that hurt animals. Your typical men’s deodorant contains some animal ingredients and it’s tested on animals. Not good, in as far as we’re concerned.

Which is why we’ve come up with a list of some cruelty-free, safe-ingredient men’s deodorants that we think you should try (or you should buy for the man in your life). Continue reading [...]

As we mentioned last week, We’re starting a new “best of” series. The "best of" series features our favorite vegan beauty products in each category. Last week we featured our favorite skin serum, this week we're featuring our favorite moisturizer, Prtty Peaushun skin tightening lotion.
“Prtty Peaushun” (pronounced, simply, “pretty potion”) skin tightening lotion has a raw, vegan ingredients list that is drool-worthy: arnica, calendula flower, and green tea (anti-inflammatory ingredients), Blue Vervain Leaf (relieves muscle aches and pains), and Allantoin (promotes natural production of collagen/elastin).

Many health-conscious consumers are always There's no denying that hot weather brings more sweat.

We happened upon Petal Fresh Organics vegan and cruelty-free beauty products by accident.

While we love our organic beauty products, the common downside is that they are often pricier since the ingredients are high quality and made in smaller batches. Continue reading [...]
Half of being beautiful, if not more, is being healthy. Vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty products like cosmetics and perfume can only take you so far; having healthy and beautiful skin and hair is just as important, if not more so.

Where many products of this type incorporate harsh ingredients like petroleum. Elemental Herbs makes products that have the desired effects of petroleum-based products, such as locking in moisture, without the negative side-effects. Continue reading [...]

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.
