Wow Today my international publication with @jutemagazine turns 4 years!!!!Holy Cow ๐Ÿฎ Where has time gone??๐Ÿ™ˆThank you Facebook memories for reminding me๐Ÿ˜นโ™ฅ๏ธ {Magazine: @jutemagazine Vol.VIIIpart2 ๐Ÿ“ธPhotography: @snapsstudio ๐ŸŽจMUAH: @muatonyyanez (myUncle)

๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธModel: @creestaaal @veganmakeupshare } {Just A Little Note: @tartecosmetics Is a ๐ŸฐCruelty-Free Brand certified by @peta Let it be noted that Tarte Cosmeticsโ€™s Parent company is KOSร‰ a Japanese PC who does test on animals. Although Tarte itself does not sell their products in the Chinese market where Animal Testing is required. I personally stopped supporting Tarte once the Acquirement happened because unfortunately the brand and PC couldnโ€™t answer my questions and as you can see I was a huge customer which unfortunately for them made me withdraw my support from their products๐Ÿ’”

If a brand cannot answer their own customers questions/concerns regarding their Acquirement in my Personal opinion that just sucks!We live in a capitalist world&unfortunately most brands will continue to sell out to the same PC we are boycotting.Whether it be food, makeup&clothing.Yes itโ€™s very frustrating!Its a Catch-22(โ€œa dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions.โ€)

For the animals we are trying help.

I say support your indie brands& truly Cruelty-Free&Vegan brands first&if you want to make our lifestyle accessible4everyone else then you can support the others if you want.Progress over perfection.Do whatever you can.We all have different situations happening inour lives}

Zabana Essentials Glow Stick

Zabana Essentials Vegan🌱 & Cruelty-Free 🐰
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! Iโ€™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.

Vegan Shaving

Shaving

image

Today I decided I wanted to shave !
Its now Spring but out here it feels like summer!!!โ˜€
I believe that anyone can do what they feel is right for their self’s.
You can shave if you want or you  can choose just not to shave because its your body and your choice.
Hair on your body is natural and shouldn’t be seen as its dirty or gross.
Everyone has hair on their body.
Some people get their hair shaved, Trimmed or lasered off and some grrrls and dudes keep their hair.
Its your choice your bodyโœŠ
Today I used 100Percent Pure’s
Seaweed Grapefruit Shaving cream!
Omfg it smelled bomb!
It was absolutely easy to use and left my legs feeling so soft after shaving them!

I definitely recommend this shaving cream it has been the best one I have ever tried!!!!!

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 Consumers๐Ÿ‘.
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! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
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 this๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ.
I will be updating this post to see if it can reach my hair goals!.

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.๐Ÿ‘Ž 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.
