“everyone” has a story … including Scot and his buddy Barney of EO Products

29 Jul

Barney EO 1 We’re back from vacation and back to guest blogs and weekly giveaways and announcing a few winners from the last couple of weeks so… for our first order of business…. Scot Mills of EO Products and the everyone Brand makes his contribution as our CFC weekly guest blogger!  Go Scot….

“Why Cruelty Free EO?
I have to say that while I love the fact that EO products are clean, luxurious and effective, it is as much due to my best friend Barney that I am as enthusiastic about this company as I am.
Let me explain: Barney is a 10lb Toy Fox Terrier. He came from the Marin County CA SPCA, where my wife and I found him amongst a horde of Chihuahuas, which the Humane Society folks had mistaken him for. He looked very out of place amongst their yapping enthusiasm, and his demeanor was one of “I’ll come to the front of the cage if I really have to, but as tired as I am of these roommates and their non-stop yapping, I still don’t want to be led on either!” We really felt that he needed a better place to live.
Long story short, we ended up adopting him, and there is no possible way for either my wife or I to regret it – Barney is the best!
However, when he was turned into the SPCA close to a year earlier, Barney had been found in Novato, Ca, with his little knees so badly out of alignment that he had to drag his hind-quarters around, and he had little or no use of his legs due to his genetic deformity. He had also been abused, and it appeared that he had been born into an environment in which he was not well liked or cared for, and he had been abandoned to wander the streets. Kids had been mean to him (we can tell by his reaction to most kids), and he was very skittish and submissive after all he’d been through.
The SPCA was good enough to pay for the surgery to fix his knees, and he spent about 6 months rehabilitating in San Quentin Prison with their Prisoner Care program; and by the time we found him and brought him to his new home, he was a bit wobbly, but up and around, and beginning to find his confidence as well.
Now here’s the thing which I can’t figure out: Barney is the sweetest, most loving and affectionate little best friend anyone could ever want. He looks at you with those soulful brown eyes, and his little tail wags hello, and it is impossible not to want to scratch his head and tell him how happy he makes you.
Did I mention he says “Orp!” when he yawns?
So how in the world could anyone have been mean to him? How could that have been possible?
Unfortunately, there are those in this world who do not understand that our four-legged friends deserve a pain-free existence; including some manufactures of health and beauty aids, who feel that torturing a defenseless bunny is a fantastic way to find out if a product is safe for humans!
This is but one of the many reasons that EO is a favorite in the industry: A Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Non GMO Zero-Waste B Corporation, which makes some of the most luxurious, effective, all natural and botanical products available. We use only the finest essential oil blends and food-based elements to generate aromas – NEVER any laboratory generated, overpowering and lingering fragrances; only real, clean plant-based elements – and all manufactured right here in the Marin County – never outsourced/never tested on animals – good for you, good for our furry friends, good for our environment….enjoy!”

 

Scot, what an amazing story in so many different ways!  Thank you for sharing with us and reminding us how good people can be!

Interview with Product of the Year Winner! (Guest Blog)

16 Jul
productofyear

Le Savonnier Marseillais

 

Happy July 21st!

We’ve been honored with yet another guest blogger.  This time from our friends at the Vintage Soap Factory!  Co-Founder Elizabeth Attie took a few minutes to do an interview with us!  (We’ve tried this product and love it by the way!)

What would you like readers to know about your company and the Le Savonnier Marseillais brand?

The Vintage Soap Factory is a manufacturer of traditional soaps dedicated to always producing 100% natural pure olive oil soaps. We have perfected an ancient process for modern times.
The idea was born with one simple goal — to provide the finest quality natural soap for household and personal use, the latter for all skin types after being aware of the importance of true natural products. We use only superior olive oil sourced from the finest of regions.

Your Le Savonnier Marseillais All-Purpose Soap was honored with a People’s Choice Award as being among the breakout products of 2014. Tell us a little about the product. What has winning the award meant?

It was very exciting for us to be voted Product of the Year in the liquid soap category and featured in Parade magazine. The liquid soap is the finest product line we have to offer, and is everything you need to clean all your washable surfaces. There is no need for an arsenal of cleaners when one all-purpose soap can clean your countertops, dishes, windows, floors, laundry,upholstery and more. Its main ingredients — 100% olive oil for streak-free cleaning and other essential oils, which have antifungal and disinfectant properties — are selected for their
reputed benefits for home and skin. It’s a potent yet gentle formula that is safe for you and your family and also protects the health of our rivers, streams and oceans.

Do natural products really clean?
There is a common misconception that green doesn’t clean. Any one cleaning product — green or conventional and used in small amounts and with proper ventilation — probably won’t make you ill. The problem is that most people use multiple cleaning products. Repeated exposure to the chemicals in these products can add up. On the surface, they appear to be great at what they are designed to do — repelling dirt, dust and grime with nothing more than a spritz and some elbow grease. Unfortunately, these often contain toxins that shouldn’t come into contact with the most absorbent tissue in our bodies. Many of these ingredients are the same compounds you are working to eliminate from your furniture, beauty routine and laundry processes. If they don’t have a place in your living room, medicine cabinet or closet, they shouldn’t be in your cleaning supplies.

 

Who are your key customers? Why do they buy your products?

The move toward natural, organic and healthy products is not a fad but a societal shift that is poised to grow to $226 billion by 2018, with an annual growth rate of 8.6%. This translates into key trends identified for the coming year, which include:

•The health and wellness consumer: The healthy movement is spreading across all demographic groups, differentiated by lifestyles, behaviors, attitudes and beliefs about health and wellness. Consumers are looking for natural ingredients at a price point that is attractive.

•Convenience and accessibility: There is a demand for products that permit people to make eco-friendly decisions and conveniently carry them out.

•Labeling transparency: Consumers are asking for transparency with regard to product labels, claims and certifications, including Leaping Bunny, non-GMO and organic.

•Our core demographic: A female between the age of 25 and 50 concerned with her family’s health, who cares about indoor and outdoor environments and values natural ingredients in products even when they are not the least expensive alternative.

 

Thank you so much Elizabeth!  We are so thrilled to have  you and your brand represented at Cruelty Free Consumer.com!

Congrats to you as well on your “Product of the Year” win!

We now carry this on our site!  We love it… did we already mention that!?

Naturally Fun Products…A lip treat unlike any other…. Crazy Rumors!

7 Jul
crazy rumors july 2014

Lip Balms!

 

Crazy Rumors…. Is one of the first companies we started working with in 2011! We are so happy to be partnered with this amazing brand…. they are fun and offer a fantastic product… (As it says in their tagline… naturally fun products!)

Fun for my girls too as they are always wanting to try the latest “Flavor’ … the biggest challenge is teaching a 2.5 year old not to roll it (the lip balm) all the way up!  Oh… the lessons!!!!

So yes…Crazy Rumors is our featured company this week! Learn about them and what they do for the animals as well! You’ll find them at Crueltyfreeconsumer.com. They also have received tons of national media & press coverage!

Here we go! Thanks to Edie for her story contribution below to our blog!!!
“Crazy Rumors was a concept my husband Brian and I came up with while hanging out in a local coffee/tea house what seemed like ages ago (2003). We loved the look and feel it evoked, and thought how much fun it would be to take these elements and incorporate them into an awesome product! That was the birth of our first babies (before the kitties) Perk and Brew – our coffee and tea flavored lip balms!

Did you know before making our first batch of balms, we experimented with soap making. It was a bit messy, but the Tangerine Oatmeal soap was just awesome!
Maybe we’ll try it again one day! :)

The love of our packaging, branding and design, and of course formulation and flavoring is why our customers keep coming back for more! Our products are unique by incorporating fun and fresh into the natural realm. Today, we have grown from 12 flavors to over 40! Some of our awesomely unique flavors include: Sweet Thai Tea, Red Velvet Cake and even a vegan Honey (we call Bee My Honey) We even have a beautiful line of Hawaiian inspired line of lip colors! Our high quality, super moisturizing ingredients make our products fabulous. We only use the best of the best plant based all natural, non – GMO and vegan ingredients. We’ve had the same customers carry our products since day one, and we’re super proud of it!

Thanks for checking us out! (Smooches! Edie & Brian)”

Edie, Brian thank you again for your partnership! We are so thrilled to be able to offer the Crazy Rumors brand to our Cruelty Free Consumers!

Oh by the way… since we know all of you are following us… you can probably assume what comes next… YES!  A  Crazy Rumors giveaway!  Watch next week for details!

“A love of animals is a requirement”

2 Jul

 

New Brand!  Makeup coming soon!

New Brand! Makeup coming soon!

So Monday comes and goes… Tuesday comes (Lost power…ugh!) and goes….(still no power!)  and now it’s Wednesday night… YET… We are still happy to post this weeks blog… from Gourmet Body Treats~  I discovered this Leaping Bunny company awhile back and now am thrilled to make the “formal” introduction and announcement that CFC is now carrying this amazing brand and their products…. MAKEUP INCLUDED!!!  So on to the blog from our friend, Waleska of GMT!

Gourmet Body Treats is a family run cruelty free cosmetics company.
Every product we make is 100% vegan, never tested on animals, and are
all created to have the absolute lowest environmental impact possible.
Gourmet Body Treats has one simple goal – create effective skincare
and cosmetics while also putting common sense ethics at the forefront
of our decision making, at all levels of ingredients sourcing,
production, and packaging.

Gourmet Body Treats is dedicated to the same 3 principles our company
was founded on almost 10 years ago.

1. Always be natural and organic.
In today’s world people are pretty jaded with the term “natural”. It
doesn’t mean anything to the FDA, but it means a lot to us. The owners
of GBT (Gourmet Body Treats) spend close to 40% of every dollar
traveling to the farms that we source our ingredients from ensuring
that the growing practices reflect the term natural. That means that
we never use pesticides and we have a chance to visibly check the that
working conditions at each grower are acceptable.

2. Always work with ingredients that are grown by people who are paid
a living wage, in conditions that are not dangerous or unhealthy.
We believe in the tenets of Fair Trade business, but don’t rely on
anyone but ourselves to ensure that the term applies to our company.
We are members of several Fair Trade Associations, but in recent
months these associations have come under scrutiny. That’s why we’ve
always believed it important to have feet on the ground checking that
if we claim our product is Fair Trade, it stands up to the test.

Always source ingredients from local farmers whenever possible.
We work with small family farms, and the majority of our ingredients
come from Texas, where our company is based. We visit our farms
regularly, and have a great relationship with them! That means
ingredients are fresher & the product is better as a result. Many of
them can’t afford the USDA Organic Certification, and our packaging
reflects that, but please know that all of our ingredients are the
highest quality available!

3. Always remain Vegan, and never test on animals.
Not everyone who works for us is vegan, but a love of animals is a
requirement. We never use any ingredients that contain or are sourced
from animals or insects such as beeswax, honey, lanolin, carmine, etc.
There are billions of plant types in the world, and all of them have
a purpose. Why use an ingredient that might hurt an animal or bug when
you don’t have to!

In addition to this we never test on animals. “Volunteer” is one of
our most prized positions here at Gourmet Body Treats, and we have
people clamoring for a chance to try our newest products!

All of our products are 100% vegan and manufactured on site fresh
daily from our hands to yours. Our customers love our products because
they are safe to use on sensitive skin types and are effective. We’re
popular with a wide variety of people for a number of reasons. Many of
our customers are cancer survivors, and literally can not use anything
else. It’s a big responsibility to deliver quality products that are
safe for these people to use, so we take it very seriously.

 

Thank you so much Gourmet Body Treats.  Again, we are so excited to have you join Cruelty Free Consumer.com…. another fantastic addition!

 

Be watching our social media pages for the GBT giveaway next week and details on how to enter!  I personally can’t wait to get my hands on their Brown Sugar Coffee Scrub!

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! “Our Story”.

23 Jun
The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

 

Hello today!  Welcome to our Monday Guest Blog/Giveaway once again!  This is our 3rd official “Installment”…(We need a better word… writers block)… please throw us a suggestion!

This week our focus is on a newly discovered company and I’m in love!  The products offered by “A Girl’s Gotta Spa!”are absolutely amazing just as Shannon had told us!  We love her story and being a mom myself…. I can certainly relate!

Below is Shannon’s story from A Girl’s Gotta Spa!…

The concept of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! began 9 years ago this October.
I was 31 years old at the time and a mother of 3 sons (with another to be the apple of my eye in the not so distant future.) I had recently left working in the mental health field, which was both rewarding and taxing, and moved from the suburbs of Philadelphia to the rural surroundings of the Pocono Mountains. The idea of taking time for myself was not a foreign concept; however it is typically quite a dichotomy. On the one hand you have people telling you that you need some me time, “Take some time for yourself,” they’d say, “You deserve it.” Then, on the other hand, you have people asking you and accusing you of being selfish for doing so.

I believe you deserve to be pampered.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! ® was built on the belief that your personal well-being should be a priority. A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is a call to action, whether you are young or old, regardless of ethnicity or creed, working in the corporate world or busy raising the next generation of responsible leaders, you deserve to treat yourself daily.
I truly believe this and whether you are worn and withered from your career, your children, your spouse, your friendships, your finances and any other circumstance in your life (the good and the bad), I want you to believe it too.

Pamper: To indulge with every intention, comfort and kindness.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! bath and body line is one that is natural and cruelty free. Nowhere in our mission is there room for animal cruelty of any kind. We’re proud to now be among a prestigious list of beauty companies who also hold this same value with our Leaping Bunny certification.

  • A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is free of sulfates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, synthetic colors and fragrances. Our Energizing Citrus Body Wash and Energizing Citrus Body Lotion are both vegan. Crafted in small batches, the purity and quality of the ingredients will be an elucidation to your dry skin care woes and satiate your senses.
  • Energizing Citrus is an invigorating mix of pink grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange. The fragrance is not overwhelming, but more subtle in the sense that you can clearly distinguish each essential oil as you apply the products. The Body Wash will leave your skin hydrated and silky smooth, while the Body Lotion will leave skin looking and feeling soft and healthy.

So I encourage you, take time for yourself today. Know that you are worth it. Know that you deserve to be pampered.

 

Thank you Shannon, we are so thrilled to be associated with you and your brand!

Next week, you will have the chance to win these 2 products to pamper yourself!  Be watching via Facebook, Twitter and this blog for details as to how to enter!

Bulldog products are body-friendly and don’t contain controversial man-made chemicals such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances. Instead, all Bulldog products are loaded with essential oils and other amazing natural ingredients to deliver superb skincare results.

Bulldog products are never tested on animals and never include ingredients derived from animal sources. The brand is approved as ‘Cruelty Free’ and was rated as the top brand in the UK across both male and female skincare categories in the Ethical Company Organization’s 2012 Good Shopping Guide. Bulldog can be found nationwide in or at CRUELTY FREE CONSUMER.com!

This month Bulldog is urging American men to enhance their natural skincare regimes with the launch of three new specialist products available online at meetthebulldog.com.  As always, these products are purpose built for men using world-class natural ingredients, all delivered with a witty dose of personality on the back of each pack.

Guest Blogger from Andalou Naturals joins CFC (Cruelty Free Consumer) to talk about The Non-GMO Project

6 Feb

Non-GMO from botany to beauty

What are GMOs? GMOs, “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.* Basically, it creates entirely new species that have never existed on the planet before, species that we do not have the science nor history to fully understand. GMOs are prevalent in many common crops used for animal and human consumption including Alfalfa, Canola, Corn, Cotton, Papaya, Soy, Sugar Beets, Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash.
Your right to know. Over the past several years, consumers have started demanding the right to know what’s in their food. In the United States, there are major campaigns underway focused on GMO labeling policies, and many states have assembly bills before their legislatures. Polls show that over 80% of Americans support mandatory labeling of GMOs, and in support of this, just this past March, Whole Foods Market announced that by 2018, all products in Whole Foods US and Canadian stores must be labeled to indicate whether they contain genetically modified organisms. After all, doesn’t it make sense to know what’s in the products we use and consume every day by reading an accurate and truthful label?

How to avoid GMOs? Unfortunately, even though polls consistently show that a significant majority of Americans want to know if the products they’re purchasing contain GMOs, there is an absence of mandatory labeling across the US, and in some cases misinformation about higher grocery costs if labeling is required. The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization created to give consumers the informed choice they deserve. They offer North America’s only third party verification for products produced according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. Look for the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal for GMO avoidance.

non GMO

Why Non-GMO for Personal Care? Crops grown for personal care products and food are from the same farm. Whether topically applied and absorbed through the skin or ingested directly as food, products containing GMOs should be labeled just the same. After all, shouldn’t it be the consumer’s right to choose if they want products containing GMOs or not?

Guest Post by Stacey Kelly Egide, who founded Andalou Naturals® Fruit Stem Cell Science® skin care and hair care. From farm to bottle and botany to beauty, Stacey believes what goes on our body, goes in our body. Andalou Naturals is the first beauty brand to achieve 100% Non-GMO Project verification, and is passionately committed to a meaningful, world-wide policy of No Animal Testing.

Oh Baby!…. (and mom!) Guest blogger from Belly Buttons & Babies featured.

16 Oct

20131016-141608.jpgOur good friend, Fran Loudas, Founder of Belly Buttons & Babies™, has agreed to be one of our first guest bloggers for our new blog series in which we talk to CEO’s, Founders and Influencers of Cruelty Free Companies. (Thank you, Fran!)

It was a spring afternoon in 2010, when my newborn was “napping” that I had the pleasure of speaking with Fran about partnering up together, and having the Belly Buttons & Babies brand join Cruelty Free Consumer.  I remember it well!  Not only was I excited that BBB was a certified cruelty free company….. But Fran was a mom too! (Good for me so she would understand when I had to cut our conversation short…as my sweet precious (cat!) napping baby just woke up and needed some attention and love!)

Belly Buttons & Babies has earned many awards over the years and they offer tremendous products for both mom and baby!  Enjoy her post!
Belly Buttons & Babies makes products for mothers and babies that are produced exclusively from plants and vegetable oils and contain no petroleum by-products or parabens. They are superbly blended and incredibly versatile dual-use products that are extremely safe for mom, baby and the whole family.
Belly Buttons & Babies™ understands that baby’s skin is softer than adults and does not have the same barrier functions as adult skin. Hence our formulations must be mild, yet effective. By using ingredients that are well known to be beneficial to baby’s skin we have developed what we strongly believe to be the purest, safest and most effective baby skincare range available today. Keeping babies natural and chemical-free is our goal.
Natural products from Belly Buttons & Babies soothe delicate skin, are made to heal and protect. Our products are pure and gentle on skin. Luxurious oils and certified organic herbs nurture, while remaining free of the preservatives, artificial fragrances and dyes commonly found in body care products.
• Our promise to you is to bring products that inspire you by being better to yourself.
• Our products care for your skin and your overall well-being.
• Our products are cruelty-free, do not contain additives or artificial colour, are paraben and sulfate free and are made with the most powerful natural, organic and wild crafted ingredients. If you can’t find it in nature, you won’t find it in our products.

Our Philosophy is simple:
Research, test and refine our products.
Our promise to you is to bring products that inspire you by being better to yourself. Our products care for your skin and your overall well-being.
We value consumer input and we take that into account when creating our products.
At Belly Buttons & Babies™, we believe that true beauty comes from within. That’s why we strive to make it simple and affordable for you to nourish yours and your baby’s skin daily with the best nature has to offer.
All of our products are carefully researched and developed to ensure only the finest, most effective botanically based formulas are used.

Again, thank you , Fran!

Changing Seasons, Welcoming Change and what bee’s do…according to a 4 year old

30 Sep
"Look Mommy! The bee is pollinating!"

“Look Mommy! The bee is pollinating!”

Happy Monday!

We enjoyed a beautiful fall Saturday this weekend in Michigan!  We were able to watch Tigers Baseball, take part in the neighborhood cleanup and enjoy a tour of our local nature center… whew… busy, but fun.

We also experienced… “Look mommy!  The bee is pollinating!”

It’s nice seeing the addition of colorful mums to the yard.  It’s also a sad reminder that summer is over when we’re cleaning up beds and pulling out watermelon, pepper, tomato and zucchini plants.

It offers a good lesson for me as well as the girls though and it’s always a treasure to see what “just grows overnight”. (ahh, the magic of being a kid!)  Well, we know what to plant next year!

So, being that it’s now fall and a time for change….Cruelty Free Consumer’s making a small and fun change too!

Starting this month, we will be hosting guest bloggers.  We have a few lined up already from some of our favorite cruelty free companies and organizations.  This also means…. along with great information, product reviews and industry news, we will have gift certificates and sample giveaways!

We are excited and hope you are too.

AND…If you have not heard this yet…. We’ll say it again because we are thrilled to see this happen…

It’s our goal to be the largest online retailer of certified cruelty free products.  We are certainly on our way and in addition to being able to offer all of these brands in one place…. Cruelty Free Consumer can and will give financially back to animal organizations.  www.crueltyfreeconsumer.com/affiliate_info.asp

Tell us… who would you like to hear from and what kinds of products would you like us to review and maybe even give away?

Enjoy the Day Cruelty Free Consumers!

Next Cruelty Free Brand to be added

20 Mar JK-Blog-Banner[1]

I want to hear about your favorite Cruelty Free product and tell me why!  What Leaping Bunny certified brand do you want us to add next to Cruelty Free Consumer.com?  To date, Leaping Bunny has certified over 444 companies! We want to be the place you can purchase any of these brands and we are working hard to make that happen!  Coming soon…By Valenti Organics and Bulldog Natural Skincare! Contact me.  Receive 25% off next order.
