Did you know many bar soaps contain animal byproducts that come directly from a slaughterhouse? Not only do these byproducts find their way into bar soaps, but they're also in many of the beauty products and cosmetics you apply daily.
With names like tallow, sodium tallowate, stearic acid, and lard just to name a few, animal byproducts are not always easy to identify in a list of ingredients, and let's face it, when was the last time you looked at the ingredient list on your bar soap or mascara anyway?

Read on for a list of vegan-friendly, cruelty-free bath and body products that will make you feel great both figuratively and literally.
