About Zabana Essentials:

image

Welcome! My name is Shanell Edwards, I am the founder of Zabana Essentials (Pronounced: Zab-Ana Essentials), located in San Diego, California. It is my mission to offer Pure 100% Natural & Vegan Cosmetics. Zabana Essentials got its start when I began my quest to find affordable natural-hypoallergenic bath and body products that would not irritate my sensitive skin. I was a college graduate, attempting to start my career in the workforce and was on a tight budget like many and found it difficult to afford many of the well-known natural products on the retail shelves. After reading labels and realizing that I had some of the natural ingredients already in my kitchen, I decided to begin researching and experimenting and found the answers to my quest were right at my fingertips.
It is now my goal to offer affordable Natural – Vegan – Human Friendly – Cruelty Free Cosmetics that are not only nurturing for the skin, but enjoyable, attractive, and smell great! I’d like to be able to reach consumers who may not fit the stereotypical natural products consumer of the past, but people just like me. People who are seeking healthy, non-intimidating alternatives, for their everyday lifestyle.
  What does Zabana Mean?!?!?!
I often hear “What does Zabana mean?”, “That’s a unique name.” Zabana means Savannah in the Native American Taino dialect. What is special about a Zabana to us? A Zabana is a grassy plain eco-system that may contain an abundance of herbaceous plants that lend benefits to us humans. For centuries therapeutic oils have been extracted from natural plant matter to promote good health and well-being. All Zabana Essentials products are of plant derived origin, and every formulation we use the essence of herbs, whether it be through the use of dry herbs or essential oils, herbal or vegetable based body oils and butters. I believe it is vital that we use the nutrients provided to us by mother earth, as we can find an abundance of benefits using what has been provided to us.

Eight years ago I started buying Ion products from my local Sally’s Beauty Supply.
I was soo amazed that five years into it Ion started labeling which products are Vegan friendly which makes it a lot easier for us the Vegan Consumers👏.
I immediately started supporting all their Vegan options and seriously Ion has helped me keep my hair! I’ve gone through lots of color hair changes and damages from extream bleaching to get my hair super white to going back brunette for jobs.
Ion vegan friendly products have saved my hair! 👌
Today I decided to check out my local Sally’s Beauty Supply store and to my amazement Ion now has Cool blonde shampoo and conditioner!!!!!! I am solo excited because its like the purple shampoo! It brightens and tones White, silver, and blonde hair!!!!! Its Vegan and Cruelty-free and Paraben free as well! This should be a game changer for me and I’m definitely super excited about this💖💖💖💖🎉👏👌.
I will be updating this post to see if it can reach my hair goals!.

In this Editorial MuaTonyyanez used Ion color solutions Firm Hold Shaping hair spray! Not only was it not sticky yucky like some hairsprays or super hard crunchy it was the perfect hairspray ever that I have used!👌

From this new email update :

I have gotten that this company does not know where there ingredients are gotten from…

And they said ” Finish product may not be tested on animals” May not??? Do they just not know? There is definitely miscommunication between there representatives.👎 Unfortunately because of this email I will no longer support Ion Products. I will finish using my products and find ones that align with my beliefs.

Vegan Police Shop
      About
     Eighteen years ago, I made a life changing decision which opened up a whole new world to me . I saw everything in a different way and physically felt less weighed down by the world. I went vegan, and to be honest, I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know how to cook, I didn’t understand nutrition and I had never set foot in a health food store. Despite all of this,  I was feeling better than I ever . Early on, my family doctor had told me “If you continue eating like this, you are going to end up in the hospital” . It was hard to hear but only because I knew she was wrong. Here I am now, a healthy and happy 36 year old with an amazing vegan family of my own . I let the way I felt determine what I knew was right for me. Over the years , this feeling has been constantly reaffirmed by countless studies. A vegan diet is optimal for a healthy body, the planet and obviously, the animals.   It is my belief that humans are natural herbivores and although we are able to consume the bodies and milk of animals, it is by all means not the optimal way for us to live . My goal is to help get the message out there. Hence the title, The VeganPolice shop.     All of the items in our shop are screen printed, by hand in our little studio in Canada. We live in a little town in coastal British Columbia. We make our own buttons, shoot our on screens and mix our own colors. We only use eco-friendly water-based inks.     Vegan Police combines my two passions in life. Fighting for the animals,  and art. When I am not drawing and printing, I am spending time with my little ones ; hiking in the mountains and cooking food. This is a family effort and I thank you sooo much for letting me do what I love and supporting vegan business. Go vegan for better world !! xo

There are no cons to these shirts.
Note: I will be updating this post when I get more Vegan police shop merch ❤

Creestaaal Sanchez is an inspirational second generation Latina resident of Moreno Valley, California. She decided to go vegan almost 7 years ago and she has never looked back. It was difficult for her to transition to veganism because of her family’s disapproval of her decision, until today they don’t approve that she doesn’t eat “meat.” Latino food is laden with meat and animal products. I know so because I am Latina too. I also know that family plays a huge role in our culture. It’s hard when your family doesn’t want to listen to your reasons and instead judges and makes fun of you because you don’t want to eat animals anymore.I think that Creestaaal’s resilience and her own experience with her family inspired her to launch Hispanic Vegans of Instagram(@hispanicvegansofig). She created a space where she promotes cruelty-free Latino recipes to prove that it’s possible for Latinos to eat our traditional foods without harming animals.Besides her endless work to help more animals by raising awareness about veganism within the Latino community, Creestaaal has rescued countless animals, her most recent rescued is a hen named Blondie. I know her calling in animal rescue work has caused some financial hardships, but her passion towards the animals is stronger than a vet bill. When I am down due to all the injustices that take place in this planet, I think about Creestaaal and the work she does. Her passion energizes me, her ability to take care of seven dogs, being a regular at animal rights protests in Southern California and more are my spark to keep fighting for the animals, and social justice.Note: Creestaaal is a published model and also runs a vegan makeup sharing instagram ( @VeganmakeupShare ), a vegan gardening instagram,( @TheVegangardener ) and she has a facebook fan page.
