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)

If you often find yourself feeling frustrated or overwhelmed with having to read every ingredient label in order to know if a product is vegan, then let me introduce you to OZNaturals!

All of OZNaturals skincare products are both 100% cruelty-free and vegan. This means none of OZNaturals products or vitamin c serum ingredients are tested on animals at any stage of production and also, none of OZNaturals’ products contain any animal-derived ingredients like lanolin, beeswax, or honey!

This ensures that you don’t have to question or think twice about which products are vegan when you shop for OZNaturals skincare products! You’ll also be glad to hear that all of OZNaturals products are made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances, so not only are the animals happy but your skin will be happy too!

OZNaturals Vegan Skincare Review

I had the pleasure to try some of OZNaturals cruelty-free and vegan skincare products and I wanted to share my personal review with you all!

OZNaturals Vitamin C + Sea Hydrating Mask

OZNaturals’ vegan hydrating face mask contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 which claims to improve the look and feel of tired, dry/dehydrated skin while the vitamin C helps to brighten and improve hyperpigmentation.

My impression:

  • obsessed with this vegan face mask!
  • it’s incredibly gentle and even claims to be gentle enough to use everyday
  • a little goes a long way, you literally only need a dime-size amount
  • it’s a gel consistency and feels quite soothing while applying
  • it dries down to a shine so the mask doesn’t harden or crack
  • doesn’t smell like anything at all which I like!
  • I used this 3-4 times at night for a week and I’ve noticed my skin looking more hydrated, clear, and brighter the next morning!

OZNaturals Facial Serums

Both of these OZNaturals’ vegan facial serums contain Vitamin C which provides protection from damaging free radicals and supports the production of collagen. If you’re looking for another great serum to add to your skincare routine, CBD Soothing Serum is becoming quite a popular option.

One contains hyaluronic acid which claims to protect and brighten your skin! And the other contains Alpha Hydroxy acid (AHA) which claims to help promote cell turnover to reveal younger-looking skin.

As you may have guessed, OZNaturals cruelty-free and vegan facial serums are intended to be used to address the many visible signs of aging, which I’m totally on board with!

General impressions of both vegan serums:

  • lightweight serums
  • did not leave an oily or greasy residue, which was ideal for my oily complexion
  • I’ve noticed my dark spots and hyperpigmentation begin to fade just after a week of consistent use
  • very slight sweet citrus scent, barely noticeable after applying
  • both serums did not break me out!

Although both of these OZNaturals facial serums share a lot of similarities.. I did personally prefer the Vitamin C + AHA serum over the Vitamin C serum, for my oily, acne-prone skin type.

My impression comparing the two serums:

  • both absorb quickly, the Vitamin C facial serum was a little sticky whereas the Vitamin C + AHA serum left my face feeling softer and smoother
  • the Vitamin C + AHA serum wears nicely underneath my makeup
  • the Vitamin C facial serum is more runny in texture than the Vitamin C + AHA serum
  • I think the Vitamin C serum works best when used together with OZNaturals’ Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer (mentioned down below)!

OZNaturals Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer

This vegan facial moisturizer from OZNaturals contains vitamin C, coconut oil, sea kelp, and algae extract to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while delivering superior antioxidant and skin repairing benefits.

My impression:

  • lightweight moisturizer
  • leaves my face feeling soft, smooth and not sticky
  • there is a slight scent that reminds me of sea kelp, I find it very pleasant!
  • I used it before bed and my skin felt a lot smoother the next morning
  • didn’t break me out at all, which most moisturizers tend to do for my oily acne-prone skin!

Overall Review of OZNaturals Vegan Skincare

It’s very rare for my skin to be able to handle a bunch of new skincare products to try at once but after a week of testing out these 4 OZNaturals’ vegan products, I was pleasantly surprised my skin did not break out and was even showing results with fading dark spots and a brighter complexion!

I would highly recommend giving OZNaturals’ vegan skincare a try, especially the hydration mask and Vitamin C + AHA face serum!

Have you tried any of OZNaturals skincare products before?
