So its been a while since our last Blog. Quite a lot has happened over the last few months! For those of you who don't know us personally, we have moved from Yorkshire to Hampshire which has been quite the change for the family and the adjustment has taken a little time!
So the big questions people have been asking: Why Vegan?
Our answer: Why Not?
When we started out as a company we always knew we wanted to be cruelty free from the start. We were already eco-friendly and very much against animal testing. Our oils were, by nature, already Vegan but we used beeswax in the balm thinking it was the best natural product we could find.
Over the past few months we've seen a shift not just in our friends but in the whole country; the topic causing that tilt? Veganism.
Our eldest daughter first got us thinking, in that way children do, when she declared she was going to be a vegetarian. She told us that the animals didn't want to be killed for our dinner so she would no longer be consuming them. When she gave up milk and turned to Soya, it was a real lightbulb moment for us. Seeing the ease at which she switched from dairy to plant-based made us realise there are alternatives out there for everything; so why not make our products fully animal free?
So we went to work in that way engineers and creatives do; one of us making a bucket-load of lists and endless research and the other sticking pretty bits of paper to the wall as a living mood board and progress chart.
And we're proud to say... after alot of blood, sweat and tears (all human) we did it! Introducing our Vegan Beard balm! It was worth every moment.
So if you would like to get a piece of the action for yourself or a loved one, head on over to our store to check out your ticket to cruelty free beard nirvana.
