Kids get eczema for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, something in the diet is causing the rashing and itchiness. At other times, stress or the environment surrounding the child (household cleaners, pesticides on lawns, and detergents) leads to breakouts.
If you have a child who suffers from eczema, it’s best to work with a health professional to determine the cause of the condition. 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 [...]
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. When applying a bottom balm on a baby, you’re going to want to use something that’s super gentle but also protective. You’re going to need to turn to an all-natural bottom balm that will soothe a rash and keep moisture off the bum for a while, so that healing can take place.
Sounds easy, right? Well, it is if you know the right products to choose. Unfortunately, there aren’t a ton of products out there that meet these requirements, as well as another requirement we have for skincare (and you probably do too), which is keeping animals out of the equation.
We searched for some products that are gentle, protective, and cruelty-free so that if you have a hurting baby, you’ll have exactly what you need to make things better for him or her. Continue reading [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

A baby’s skin is so delicate. It needs cleansing and moisturizing products that are super gentle and toxin-free. These types of products are often hard to find in traditional grocery stores and beauty stores.

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.
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. The drawings and text on the products invite you to join a happy, pro-animal movement that could be the norm in the world if we consumers have anything to do with it. Continue reading [...]

Dry, cold winter air can often translate to dry skin. Our faces, especially, can take a beating between dry air, wind, and the daily environmental toxins that seep into our pores. One of the best ways to keep the skin looking fresh is to regularly exfoliate it to slough off dead skin and stimulate the skin to renew itself. Here are 5 of our favorite vegan and cruelty-free facial exfoliators: Continue reading [...]
