Why Choose Vegan Products?

We all have that one friend. You know the one I'm talking about, right? The friend that doesn't partake in cooking night and gives a little stink eye when anyone at the table orders a steak. The "vegan." We commonly label people based on their habits and lifestyle choices. Some choose to be meat eaters, some are vegetarians and some are full blown vegan. To most people, vegans are a different breed. Usually tooth picks in size, these people walk around in our obese society unscathed by calories. What makes this lifestyle so appealing? Well for starters, the vegan lifestyle contains absolutely no exploitation of animals in any form. Yes, this does include your leather pumps. Vegans avoid wool, leather and even honey. Eating vegan means avoiding all animal products and bi-products. More importantly, it means examining your makeup drawer and over the counter products. Living a vegan lifestyle means no animal ingredients are in any of your shampoos, lotions and even nail polish. At Be Natural Organics, we think it is important that your products are cruelty free. What exactly does "cruelty free" mean? Factory farms in America are dismal and depressing representations of how we treat those who can't speak. Animals are forced to live in atrocious conditions while countless animals needlessly die because they can't keep up with the rate that we force them to produce eggs, milk and even their own meat. If you don't want any part of this industry, you've come to the right place! It is hard to make the switch and many ridicule this decision that "goes against the norm." Luckily, there are many products to choose from that make the transition easy. We offer many lotions, cleaners and scrubs that contain no animal bi-products whatsoever. Our natural ingredients will sooth and nourish your skin and won't harm any animals in the process! So whether you want to make the switch to vegan or just dabble in cruelty free products, we hope you find exactly what you need to suit your lifestyle!
