Just stop eating animals. 🐷🐣🐮🌱...

Bite Beauty is now officially 100% vegan! 🌱✨ @bitebeauty recently reformulated all of their products and has removed all animal-derived ingredients and by-products (like lanolin, beeswax, and carmine) from their entire collection. 🙌🏻
.
However, it should be noted that their Lip Lab is not completely vegan, yet! They’re working on making it vegan in the near future. 🌿💖
.
Bite Beauty's Vegan Statement:
.
"Yes, Bite Beauty products are vegan.
.
Our reason to go vegan was simple-we’ve evolved. We can create high-performance formulas without ingredients that come from animals. As we’ve been innovating with superfoods, we’ve learned we can get amazing results that perform on par with-if not better than-formulas that contain animal byproducts.
.
Further, we wanted to create products everyone can love-including people who crave clean, cruelty-free and vegan beauty."

I just finished reading ‘Slave to Fashion’ by @safia_minney 📚 and it has completely changed my perspective on the true cost of cheap clothes. ✨ Definitely a must-read to understanding modern slavery in the fashion industry and the need to support fair trade and ethical brands that are transparent about how their products are made with respect for people and the planet. 🌍🌿
.
"Today, a whole generation of shoppers expect to be able to buy cheap clothing - but these low prices are only possible because of the slavery and exploitation that exist in the fashion supply chain.
.
The price of clothes does not reflect the true cost to the farmers, spinners and weavers, tailors, finishers, quality-control teams and packers who are underpaid and overworked in the race to get the latest fashion items into our stores.
.
Many of them are forced to live and work in shocking conditions.
.
Workers in developing countries are often left helpless by a lack of workplace representation and unions that could speak up for their rights. As a result, we are witnessing a global 'race to the bottom', with developing countries competing against each other to supply the cheapest labor in a bid to attract brands to their factories."

So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

The Best Deals on iHerb (Cruelty-Free & Natural Beauty)

This post may contain affiliate links.

iHerb is a great online marketplace for finding various cruelty-free, vegan, and natural beauty products. I especially love shopping on iHerb for finding natural beauty products that are usually harder to find in-stores in Canada! iHerb also has some unbeatable prices on select products.

But with over 1,000 natural and cruelty-free beauty products to browse through on iHerb, it can get a little overwhelming for finding the best deals.

I’m an avid coupon queen who may or may not use something similar to GetYourCouponCodes to find the best deal so I love finding the best prices and deals on products, so I thought I’d share my personal research of the very best deals on natural, cruelty-free, and vegan beauty products iHerb has to offer! If you want to save more, you can save an additional 10% off your order using the coupon code: FVH641.


Jojoba Oil | Sweet Almond Oil | Grapeseed Oil | Vegetable Glycerine

Now Foods’ Natural Oils

If you’re looking for great prices on natural and 100% pure multi-purpose oils like sweet almond oil (amazing for nourishing skin) or avocado oil (great for your hair), you can save almost 50% off the retail price on an array of Now Foods’ natural products. They also offer organic options, like this certified organic jojoba oil for only $8.76!

You can score a 16 oz bottle of vegetable glycerine for only $5.25 on iHerb, that’s a savings of 47% off! and a jar of Now Foods’ coconut oil is only $5.06!

Facial Cleanser | Clean Face Wash | Replenishing Shampoo | Facial Cleansing Pads

Desert Essence

You can find Desert Essence natural products in most stores including your local grocery store, where they might conveniently run a sale on their products from time to time but on iHerb, I find that they have the best prices on Desert Essence products all year round.

Most of their shampoo and conditioners are price matched on Amazon but as far as the best unbeatable deals that iHerb comes on top of is on the Desert Essence tea tree oil collection. For example, the Replenishing Shampoo is only $5.62 on iHerb vs. $9.08 on Amazon.

Nature’s Gate

If you want more bang for your buck, I highly recommend Nature’s Gate because their cruelty-free and natural personal care products come in a very generous bottle size (18 oz) but their prices are super affordable, so you pay less per oz compared to other brands.

Nature’s Gate products are 25-30% off retail price on iHerb.
