6 Summer Essentials for Cruelty Free Living

Cruelty-free living is not just about eating plant-based food. It should encompass every aspect of our lifestyle, from the sunscreen we use to the bags that we carry.


And since it’s the peak of Summer, wanted to make it extra easy for you to enjoy this bright and sunny season with our collection of cruelty-free lifestyle must-haves.


So it’s time to make those Summer plans and stock up on this season’s favorites. 


What’s the best thing about summer? It’s hitting the waves and laying out on the beach, of course. The bad part? Having to endure the damaging rays of the sun. 


Protect your skin with this Summer essential! This Sheer Tinted Facial Sunscreen features the recommended SPF level of 30 to shield your skin from harmful UVB rays. It’s packed with loads of anti-oxidants and vitamin C, plus anti-aging hyaluronic acid.


Lightweight and non-greasy enough for daily use, it’ll give you the confidence to face scorching Summer days! 



Even with loads of sunscreen, the Summer heat can get pretty intense and still get to your skin. Especially if you spent a full day out in the sun.


For rejuvenating parched skin, nothing is as soothing as the After Sun Soothing Aloe Gel. Its fast absorbing formula contains a fresh mix of Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Witch Hazel, Arnica and Eucalyptus Oil. It will moisturize the driest skin in no time!


What's more, it's free of parabens, phthalates, and other animal-derived products. Dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic makes it suitable for any skin type. 



Get your skin Summer ready with this refreshing body scrub that will leave it smooth and moisturized, perfect for showing off at the beach!


The BKIND Coffee and Peppermint Body Scrub contains organic and fair-trade coffee that acts as an excellent exfoliant, helping firm up your skin and improving blood circulation. In addition, it also has stretch mark erasing and anti-aging capabilities for a younger looking you!


Other wonderful goodies in this body scrub include sea salt for naturally detoxifying skin, castor oil for moisturizing, and peppermint oil for a fresh, cooling scent.



The Chrissie Straw Bag is your quintessential summer bag. The clean vegan leather finish is guaranteed to make a statement and is an excellent complement to the flowy, airy outfits that define Summer.


The Chrissie is roomy enough so you can bring all your essentials along with you. An interior pocket can keep your cell phone nice and safe, while a vegan leather strap makes for comfortable carrying. This is bound to be your go-to bag this Summer!



The Summer heat and humidity can make it hard to stay fresh all day, especially when travelling or laying at the beach. Having your period on those days can be a real hassle.


Feel confident even on your period with the Organicup Organic Menstrual Cup. No need to mess around with tampons or pads that can leave an icky feeling. You can go up to 12 hours without emptying the cup, which means less stress and public bathroom mess. This menstrual cup is completely leak-free, vegan-friendly, and organic. Plus, it reduces your risk for toxic shock syndrome, which is a dangerous health hazard.


And best of all? It’s completely reusable. So zero waste and more savings!



Nothing says Summer quite like smoothie bowls! Fill up your blender with fruits like mangos and bananas, top with a few berries, and you have yourself the perfect refreshing snack.


And what better way to serve a tropical concoction than in these 100% natural Coconut Bowls! Completely handmade from reclaimed coconut, each features its own shape, pattern, and color for an altogether one-of-a-kind piece.


These are the perfect eco-friendly bowls for any vegan, for any season.
