January Vs. Veganuary

There’s a reason to try vegan this January. Reduce the suffering of billions of animals. Help our planet. Discover exciting, delicious food and beauty products. Best of all feel fantastic!

What exactly is Veganuary?

Founded in 2013, non-profit charity called Veganuary set up the Veganuary pledge. Most noteworthy, they’re dedicated to changing public attitudes and behaviours of animal use in products – They also provide information and the practical support their followers need. Their mission – To inspire hundreds of thousands of people to try a vegan diet for the month of January.  It’s known worldwide both in the food and beauty industry!

We’re not just talking food anymore, we’re bringing the latest trend into the world of Shop Skincare!

Why choose to go vegan?

Most certainly, it’s a love of animals, that’s the catalyst. It seems like some people want to feel better about themselves and the impact they make on the world. While, others would like to set themselves a challenge, so many combine Veganuary with their ‘New Year’s Resolutions. Veganism is now so much more than the food we put on our plates. Inspired to embrace a more ethical lifestyle, even more of us are now taking on the challenge. We’re replacing our regular beauty products with vegan alternatives. Full of natural ingredients and free from animal cruelty, there are plenty of products to make you look and feel fantastic without the guilt.
