Instagram is beaming with posts of #veganuary and we have finally caught on. We all know a plant based diet can do wonders for our health, while help us save our planet, one vegan burger at a time. Talk about win-win! This got us thinking, why not extend the same policies to our beauty products as well. Animal testing is cruel; there is not a single reason to justify poor animals being harmed for the sake of vanity. Now, there are a ton of amazing cruelty-free products in the market to replace the chemical laden ones that are tested on animals, we’ll do you one better. We bring you 5 vegan beauty brands with a soul.
