Let’s bring Veganuary to the bathroom!
Here are 4 easy steps to spice up the challenge by choosing vegan and cruelty-free products in your bathroom:
1 - Look for the bunny!
As weird as it can sound, some additives used in the cosmetic field might be derived from animals and so are not necessarily vegan. Also, as you are certainly aware, a lot of products go through animal testing. It gives you a little taste on how controversial some chemicals used must be, to require animal testing before reaching our shops’ shelfs.
So hair we go …. when choosing a body wash, shampoo or conditioner, look for the bunny! Those cute rabbit labels indicated vegan & cruelty-free products.
It usually comes as a trio with being vegan, natural, and eco-friendly! Safer for your health, for the animals and the planet. Because your body (and the bunnies) worth it!
2. Switch to a vegan & cruelty-free toothpaste!
Your toothpaste might be also fooling you, too. You don't need to be a superhero to help save the planet. It can be as simple as brushing your teeth with a vegan & cruelty-free toothpaste brand.
If you worry about the taste, don’t, give it a try with NOICE toothpaste that is vegan, cruelty-free, organic & refillable. It’ll leave your with a minty fresh breath and offers a complete oral care!
So you’ll be going vegan and getting all of that minty taste without all of the waste. Two birds, one stone. But let’s not throw stones at birds, that wouldn’t be very nice.
3. Don’t pick the razor!
To use with care! If you look closer to your usual razor brand you will discover that lubrification strip might be made from animal fat.
To bring Veganuary to your bathroom, we have a solution! Switch to a safety razor, trendy, handy and will look fabulous in your bathroom right by NOICE toothpaste bottle.
The beauty of it, in addition of smooth cheeks or sleek legs, your will be also be savings tons of plastic razors from a lifetime in landfills.
4. Ditch the fabric softener!
Who says the vegan lifestyle should stay in the kitchen? It can definitely spill over to the laundry room. So next time you’re washing your t-shirts, remember that not all fabric softeners are vegan-friendly.
The culprit here is dihydrogenated tallow dimethyl ammonium chloride, or in basic English, animal fat extracted from cows and sheep. But maybe this is getting too technical here… would you prefer to impress your mother-in-law?
We’ve got a DIY fabric softener just for you.
Roll up your sleeves and get a:
A jar or glass bottle
Essential oil (lavender, lemon, citrus)
After you’ve got your ingredients:
Fill your jar or bottle with white vinegar
Add about 30 drops of essential oil
Voila! Grab your all natural fabric softener next time you’re doing laundry
