A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

Charities Fighting Against Animal Testing

This post may contain affiliate links.


Going cruelty-free is one of the easiest and effective ways to combating the horrors of animals used for product testing. By saying NO to products and companies that test on animals, we are being a voice for the millions of animals that are routinely blinded, poisoned, and killed each year.

We all deserve a pat on the back for sticking with it and for taking that extra step to look for the Leaping Bunny logo but we also have to thank all of the wonderful and courageous charities that have gone above and beyond for making some serious progress in our fight against animal testing!

These charities have worked to change laws to ban animal testing around the world; educated consumers and raised awareness about animal testing; worked tirelessly with companies to help them move away from animal testing; developed alternatives to animal testing; rescued animals used in labs and giving them a new home.

We hope you will support these incredible organizations by donating, signing their campaign petition or e-newsletter, following them on Facebook and Twitter, sharing their initiatives & resources, and whatever else is equivalent to a standing ovation!

    I whole heartedly believe no animal should be used in any research.

β€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.”― Marc Bekoff
