In speaking with my vegetarian friends I’ve learned that most animal lovers don’t know that most cheese is made with animal rennet, that Loreal is one of the biggest make-up/hair color offenders when it comes to animal testing and that many alcoholic beverages are filtered through bone char.
I wonder how many vegetarians and vegans know that condoms are made with casein, which is derived from milk? And that Trojans, the most popular brand of condoms in the USA were made by Church and Dwight — a company known for it’s unethical animal testing!
Well, single ladies and gentleman who care about animals can rejoice in that Glyde condoms are completely ethical, cruelty free and 100 percent vegan! The product contains no animal by-products and is certified vegan. Glyde condoms have never been tested on animals. (By that they mean animals weren’t harmed in lab tests in order to create the product, not that the condom was tested by putting it on an animal. I’m not trying to be funny, just thorough in my explanation.)
Glyde condoms are also paraben free and odorless. They are a fair trade product.
Some are also flavored for safe oral sex. But Glyde doesn’t use cheap chemical concoctions. They are high grade and sugar free, using organic fruit and nut extracts to create strawberry, vanilla and other flavors.
So, to all my readers who are still playing the field and want to play it safe — please use Glyde Condoms. The lab rats and cows will love you for it!
Luscious Zuzu Luxe Make-up! (Photo swiped from their website)
The other night I must have written 10 negative reviews on Yelp because good product and good service is such a rarity.
Well I finally have something positive to say about something — Gabriel Cosmetics Zuzu Luxe line: 100 percent natural ingredients, hypo-allergenic, vegan ingredients, doesn’t test on animals.
I’ve used these products for years and felt it was high time I contact them to let them know their product is loved and adored!
With “FAN MAIL” in the subject line — here is my letter to them:
Hello,I just want to say how extremely pleased I am with your Zuzu products (mascara, eye shadow, eye liner). Over the past few years I developed eye allergies and your products are the only ones I can wear with confidence that my eyes will feel perfectly GOOD!
I used to buy your products at Whole Foods, but they do not offer good customer service (bad management, nasty cashiers) so I stopped going there. I couldn’t find your products anywhere and tried other hypo-allergenic brands that don’t test on animals (some costing twice as much) and was so disappointed, as my eyes teared, burned, itched and hurt.
Then I found your website and ordered online. I got my mascara within days of ordering! I can’t express enough how pleased I am with not only your product, but your speed-of-lightning fast service!
God bless you and may you have many more years of continued business! Expect more online ordering from me soon!
As a side note, I’d like to add, that when you order things online, you sometimes get little samples. They sent me a sample of lip gloss along with my order, which was really nice.
Below I’ve listed their website if you want to order some goodies (and have a good conscious that you are buying something that they didn’t have to put painful liquid drops in bunnies eyes to see if it works because that is just not necessary!)
