When people think vegan they immediately think only of food. Another often overlooked aspect are the beauty, cosmetics, and house hold cleaners you bring into your home and use on your body daily. Today I’m sharing WHY cruelty free products are so important. I didn’t ‘get it’ for a while after making the food changes myself, so I want to bring you all the information so don’t have to waste time like I did.

I’m sharing what really happens in animal testing (it’s not just lab rats…), what alternatives are available to animal testing & how reliable they are, what ingredients are hidden in your favorite products (hint: bat poo is in most mascaras!!), and what you can do to avoid this cruel reality. Plus I answer the ever popular question of ‘should I throw everything away and start over?’
