It is shocking how many household products we use on a regular basis are not vegan or cruelty-free. Tons of animal-derived ingredients are used in cleaning and personal care products without our knowledge. But Plantie is here to make plant-based shopping easier for you. Just scroll down to find out what might be hiding in your household items and which are the alternatives we love most!

1. Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap

Standard soaps are sometimes sourced from tallow (rendered beef or mutton fat) or other animal fats. Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap is an ideal alternative as it can clean just about everything. Their 18-in-one product comes in a variety of refreshing scents such as sandalwood, citrus, and lavender. Or, if you want to take a more classic route, opt for their unscented variety. Not only does Dr. Bronner’s do right by animals, but they also cultivate fair trade relations with ingredient suppliers, cover 100% of employee health care fees, and invest in zero-waste initiatives in their supply chain. Use this product to clean your floors, do your dishes, or wash your hair!

2. Ecover Dishwasher Tablets

3. My Magic Mud Toothpaste

Shockingly, not all kinds of toothpaste are vegan friendly. Some contain animal-derived glycerin or bee propolis. And not to mention, many companies continue to test on animals. However, My Magic Mud is a safe bet. This company is leaping bunny and vegan certified as well as peanut, gluten, fluoride, and GMO-free, so you do not have to worry where your ingredients are sourced from. Overall, this toothpaste features plant-based charcoal to whiten teeth, xylitol, and coconut oil to support oral hygiene.

Warning: toothpaste becomes black and may be messy, but it is sure to provide lots of laughs.

4. Oneka Shampoo and Conditioner

Popular hair care products can include ingredients such as milk, lanolin, silk, keratin, collagen, honey, and more – none of which are vegan friendly! Seek out bottles that explicitly state that they are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free to ensure your product is 100% plant-based, like Oneka. Not only do they meet those certifications, but their formulation is biodegradable and uses organic wild plants. Oneka is also a B-corporation meaning their company meets a strict set of regulations that positively impact employees, communities, and the environment. Moreover, Oneka leaves your hair feeling cleaner and silkier!
