Why Natural Soap is Important to Your Vegan Lifestyle

Why Natural Soap is Important to Your Vegan Lifestyle

Living la vie "vegan" isn't just about saying no to meat and yes to kale smoothies. It's a whole lifestyle; as much about choosing cruelty-free, zero-waste products and supporting ethical businesses as it is about the food on your plate. 


If you're striving to go vegan, your first step might be to trade sausages for seitan and try out every dairy alternative available. Once the food swaps become second nature, you may start to think about what's in your toiletries. Chances are you've been showering with all manner of animal-derived ingredients, palm oil from unsustainable plantations and products tested on cute, fluffy creatures. Sacré bleu! Cue: moral turmoil and a quest to find vegan, cruelty-free toiletries that won't leave your sensitive skin in tatters. 


But help is at hand, animal advocates! While France may not be the first place that springs to mind for anything vegan (after all, it is the land of cheese and wine), here at The Natural French Soap Company, we're blazing a trail for cruelty-free, vegan soaps. We aim to offer traditional Savon de Marseille beauty bars that feel like decadent treats but made with care, not cruelty. 


Not all our soaps are vegan-friendly, but we highlight the ones that are to make it easy for you to shop according to your values. And vegan or not, they're all cruelty-free! As for the eco-friendly angle, our oils are sustainably sourced, and our packaging is plastic-free (from the soap wrappers to the stuffing in our delivery boxes). To us, luxury doesn't mean pointless, careless froufrou; it means keeping things simple and tipping a hat to centuries-old soap-making methods. 


Buy our vegan beauty bars, and the next time you wash your hands, take a shower or luxuriate in a bubbly bath, you can relax knowing your soap isn't compromising your ethics. We'll raise a kale smoothie to that.
