The Gnarly Whale Peppermint Green Tea Toner Review

The Gnarly Whale Peppermint Green Tea Toner Review

During the winter, my skin kind of freaks out a little bit. I get dry patches and sometimes the occasional blemish. Because of this, I try to stick to a very basic and very regular skin care routine. The Gnarly Whale reached out to me about their new green tea toners. When I read the product description for this toner from The Gnarly Whale, it stated that it could provided a clearer, brighter complexion but was still good for sensitive skin. The Peppermint Grean Tea Toner sounded like it was exactly what my skin needed.

An Exclusive Q&A About Animal Testing with Seventh Generation

An Exclusive Q&A About Animal Testing with Seventh Generation



A couple of months ago a few animal rights organizations published articles claiming that Seventh Generation, long known for being a cruelty free and vegan friendly brand, was supporting an act that would increase animal testing in the United States. The articles claimed that this was true because Seventh Generation was funding a grassroots organization that supported an act that would increase animal testing. The news spread like wildfire and many turned it into a statement that Seventh Generation was testing on animals themselves.

When I first heard about the issue, I reached out to Seventh Generation immediately. PETA and PCRM were both saying some confusing things about their political involvement and I was shocked to hear that such an animal friendly brand would have that involvement. Their CEO agreed to answer some very specific questions I had about their animal testing stance and views on animal testing in general.

It is untrue that the Seventh Generation animal testing stance has changed. The brand is still certified as cruelty free by Logical Harmony and Leaping Bunny. What surprised me most was the amount of outdated information and miscommunication being shared around this issue. Even by usually trustworthy sources.

This news may be old to some, but I was even more shocked to find out that the loose ends were never tied up in this issue and a lot of people were unaware of the outcome. Continue reading to view the full Q&A.

Vegan Beauty Low-Down - Beauty from the Inside

I personally believe that beauty is more than the makeup you wear or how you style your hair. Beauty is a lifestyle. The things that you consume and how you treat your body can have a big impact on your appearance, attitude, and health. Treating yourself right in all aspects in incredibly important. While we would all ideally be getting all the nutrients we need from the foods we consume, sometimes we need some extra help.

My regular Vegan Beauty Low-Down column in most recent issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine talks about the best supplements that can help your beauty routine. It features items from R.L. Linden & Co, Sibu Beauty, Perfect Fit by Tone It Up, and Aloha.
