Being a vegan must be really difficult. That is speculation, of course — I have no personal experience with veganism, but I have tried vegetarianism and other modified diets. It’s hard. I have so much respect for people who choose that lifestyle. One of the tougher parts of veganism must be the elimination of everyday items that contain animal products. I’m not very educated on the topic, but I often find myself surprised there are animal products in things I use, like make-up and soap. Soap! I had no idea.
C% Pure is a new line of vegan soaps from Deva America, the woman behind one of my favorite Etsy shops, Fresh Pastry Stand in Florida. Wrapped in beautifully designed, environment-friendly packaging, these soaps are soy-free, all-natural and free of dyes and artificial fragrances. They’re totally vegan and they’re not tested on animals either.
For now, the soaps come in four scents: citrusy Grove, musky Sea Smoke, ginger Kulfi and vanilla Sweet Bitters. (My money’s on the Sea Smoke!) Be sure to check out the Kickstarter Deva has going right now to bring C% Pure to commercial market! // susannah
