If youโ€™re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒปโœจ

๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.
๐ŸŒผ you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s a seasonal subscription so youโ€™ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
๐ŸŒผ do good while looking good โ€” partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

Cruelty-Free & Vegan Hair Product Brands

Cruelty-Free and Vegan Hair Brands

When I was switching all my products to cruelty-free, I was disappointed to learn that some of my favorite hair product brands like Organix, John Frieda, and Tresemme test on animals!

But I quickly discovered a new range of cruelty-free hair product brands and surprisingly, most of them had a full line of vegan haircare products! Finding cruelty-free and vegan shampoo/conditioner was rather easy but when it came to looking for vegan hairspray, mousse, gel, hair masks, and other hair treatments, required more effort. If you’re looking for some cruelty-free hair products of your own, you can start by looking at some of the shampoos and conditioners over at Reviewing This! You can find products like Malin and Goetz Peppermint over there that you may find yourself interested in.

To save you hours of research, here’s a list of 10 cruelty-free and vegan hair product brands! If you want more options for vegan shampoo/conditioners, check the list at the very bottom of this post!

Cruelty-Free & Vegan-Friendly Hair Product Brands

The following cruelty-free brands offer several vegan hair products including shampoo, conditioner, hair styling and treatment products. Please note some of the brands mentioned below are not entirely 100% Vegan, but I made sure to only include brands that have at least several vegan hair products.

Andalou Naturals (100% Vegetarian) Hair Products

Andalou Naturals (100% Vegetarian)

Almost all of Andalou Naturals’ shampoo, conditioners, hair spray, and balms are vegan with the exception of their Argan & Sweet Orange shampoo & conditioner which contains Manuka honey.

Available Online, Amazon, iHerb, Well.ca

Aubrey Organics Hair Products

Aubrey Organics

I would say about 75% of Aubrey Organics’ hair products are Vegan. Some of their non-vegan products may contain lactalbumin (a milk protein), glycoprotein (derived from oyster shells), lanolin, or egg protein. Aubrey Organics offer several Vegan shampoo, conditioners, hair gel, mousse, hairsprays, and treatments.. they also offer trial/travel size too!

Available Online, Amazon, iHerb, Well.ca

DermOrganic (100% Vegan) Hair Product Brands

DermOrganic (100% Vegan)

DermOrganic vegan hair products are frequently used at professional salons. Even better, all DermOrganic shampoos, conditioners, treatments, hairspray, styling gel, and everything else are 100% Vegan!

Available Online, Amazon

Desert Essence Hair Product Brand

Desert Essence (100% Vegetarian)

Desert Essence has countless shampoo and conditioners that’ll help moisturize, strengthen, clean, or protect your locks! They now also have some vegan-friendly hair styling products. Desert Essence uses small amounts of honey and beeswax in some of their products so be sure to read the list of ingredients before buying.

Available Online, Amazon, iHerb, Well.ca

EVOLVh (100% Vegan) Hair Product Brand

EVOLVh

Some of EVOLVh salon quality hair products are vegan-friendly! You’ll also be happy to hear that all of EVOLVh products are made using 90% or higher organic ingredients. You can find just about anything to help keep your tresses healthy and happy!

Giovanni (100% Vegetarian) Hair Product Brand

Giovanni (100% Vegetarian)

Almost all of Giovanni hair products are vegan with the exception of their Magnetic product line which contains lactoferrin. Giovanni has one of the largest selection of salon quality vegan hair products! I’ve tried half a dozen of their products to date and I’ve loved each one.

Available Online, Amazon, iHerb, Well.ca

LUSH Hair Products

LUSH (100% Vegetarian)

Most of LUSH shampoo, conditioners, and hair treatments are Vegan with a few exceptions that contain honey, beeswax, and free range eggs. I especially love the idea of their Shampoo bars!

Available Online

Pacifica (100% Vegan) Hair Products

Pacifica (100% Vegan)

Paul Mitchell

Paul Mitchell is a cruelty-free professional salon hair product brand and I was pleasantly surprised to learn most of Paul Mitchell hair products are vegan! You can easily spot which ones are vegan on their website when viewing each specific product page.

Yarok (100% Vegan) Hair Products

Yarok (100% Vegan)

Yarok hair products are all vegan and includes a variety of shampoo, conditioners, treatments, and styling products. Yarok also primarily uses certified organic ingredients so they’re definitely a fab option for consumers wanting a vegan and greener selection!

    I live in Australia and use Nature’s Organics shampoo & conditioner, plus hand soap and body wash. They are 100% vegan and cruelty free, plus better for the environment because of the recyclable bottle and the fact that it is rainwater safe etc.
