Behind the Brands: Kat Von D Beauty

She is known as a famed tattoo artist, but Kat Von D changed the game with her vegan and cruelty-free makeup line, Kat Von D Beauty. Her most popular Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a favorite with makeup artists, celebrities, bloggers and influencers, and makeup lovers everywhere. We are so excited to feature the shade Lovecraft in our June/July box – in addition to being vegan and cruelty-free, we were thrilled to discover the new formulation of the lipstick is also toxin-free!

We had the chance to chat with Kat about what inspired her to go vegan and what she loves about her BFF (and our guest curator!) Skully Smith

What inspired you to go vegan?
After watching the documentary, Forks Over Knives, the connection between what we put in our bodies and our health really hit home with me.  I had been a vegetarian for years prior to watching that film, but after that, I dropped eggs and dairy right away and have never looked back. But it wasn’t until I learned about the thousands of ways we exploit animals on a daily basis, that I really became vegan for reasons outside myself.  I encourage everyone to watch the documentary, Earthlings, to really get a grasp on what we as human beings are doing to the animals and to the environment.

What made you decide to re-formulate your Kat Von D Beauty line to be vegan and cruelty-free?

When I first created KvD Beauty ten years ago, I was not vegan at that time. Hell, I wasn’t even sober yet! So it was only natural that the more I learned about veganism, the more I needed the ingredients in my beauty products to align with my morals. And yes, it took a lot of work, a bit of money and patience, but it was well worth it!

We love that you support Farm Sanctuary like we do! What is it like volunteering at their sanctuaries?

Volunteering at Farm Sanctuary is truly a selfish act for me, considering how much joy it brings me. Being able to spend time with these lucky animals who have survived the tortures of factory farming and animal abuse gives me a certain amount of hope. As an animal activist, I find it vital to be able to see the other side of the harsh truth out there – and it’s a perfect place for people like me, who somehow became so disconnected with the human and non-human animal connection.

What is your favorite vegan restaurant?

Crossroads in Los Angeles.  Hands down.  I could eat there forever and die happy.

Three words to describe yourself?

Trying my best.

How do you stay balanced in your life?

Hm. I wish I truly knew balance, but in all honesty I think its my instability that makes it possible for me to do so much.  I think being as hyper sensitive and obsessively passionate about creativity makes it extremely difficult to balance relationships and socializing in general. I tend to be the happiest in my solitude.

What is your daily morning routine?

My daily routine varies depending on what projects I’m working on or my travel schedule.  But for the most part I wake up quite early, cuddle cats in bed before working out and breakfast, and then dive straight into whatever the day may offer.

You are friends with our guest curator Skully Smith, what’s your favorite thing about her?

I love Skully for many reasons – but one of the things I admire the most is her ability to be a modern day representation of a vegan.  No offense to the stereotypical vegan out there who likes to eat granola and wear hemp Birkenstocks, but I myself, am a modern vegan. And I think its important to show the world that standing up for animals doesn’t mean sacrificing ones personal style, and Skully makes being vegan sexy as fuck.

“Toxin Free Treats: Cleaning Up the Beauty Game”

LOVEGOODLY-box-beauty-2_200901

“‘I’ve been a long time fan and friend of Justine Lassoff who has a history of successful exits in the LA market, specifically in the eco/beauty/wellness space. Her most recent on-trend undertaking, LOVE GOODLY, with business partner Katie Bogue Miller is making women sit up and take notice of what’s in the products they put on their bodies every single day.

I must admit, I still use Bath & Body Works (I’m a cucumber melon fiend), but after sitting down with this dynamic duo, I think it’s time to clean house and clean up my beauty game.'”

Guest Editor: Suzi, Founder & Blogger of Gurl Gone Green

This month’s Guest Editor is Suzi from Gurl Gone Green. She talks about her nontoxic beauty and skincare journey, her inspiration, and her favorite food (p.s. you can find a recipe in our blog here!).

DSC06637-1

Why did you become a natural blogger?

After reading a book called No More Dirty Looks, I realized what was in my products was anything but pretty and I needed to make the switch. I had already switched over to clean eating, so this was the next step towards a natural lifestyle. I knew I wanted to share what I had learned with others in hopes that they to would transition to a toxic free life.

How do you balance your career with being a mom?

 

Oh man, this is a hard question! It’s a challenge for sure. For me it’s about taking advantage of nap times, and at night when they’re sleeping. My husband is so great and will take the girls when I need to get something done. We always say we’re a team and I fully believe it. He helps me with a lot of the technical aspect of blogging, which is huge! I think overall planning is key. If I don’t plan things out, then I set myself up for failure.

What one piece of advice do you have for new bloggers?

I would say just be consistent and write from your passion. It’s easy to get focused on what everyone else is doing but I would just focus on what you want to do, then you’ll be effective. Don’t try to be something you’re not. Just be you, that’s what people love as corny as it may sound.

Why is nontoxic beauty and skincare so important to you?

I know firsthand the toxins lurking in the beauty industry. Being a cosmetologist I’ve seen it in hair products, skincare and makeup. It’s important because if we don’t advocate for cleaner products, then this is what my daughter’s are going to grow up using. It’s about making this world safer for the next generation. Knowing that I did my part to help protect my girls and others against toxins is a great feeling.

Who inspires you?

My brother. He is the first person that really challenged me to take my health seriously and helped me switch over to eating clean. Then he raised the bar and challenged me to look into cleaner beauty products. I’m so thankful for his passion to live life to the fullest, because it’s caused me to challenge myself!

What is your morning routine?

I go to the gym with my sister-workout for an hour. I always listen to a podcast while working out-me time. Come home, shower, wash my face, brush my teeth, do my makeup, blow dry my hair and then feed my youngest daughter(7 months). Then I make a smoothie for myself.

How did you decide to start a podcast?

I love listening to podcasts! Really that’s what started me thinking I should start one. I just really love learning as much as a I can and getting other people’s perspectives. I thought what better way than to start a podcast and share all of the nuggets with my audience. Plus, it’s totally different than writing and thought it might be nice to have something in a new format.

What is the most challenging about being a blogger?

One word that comes to mind is juggling. You’re constantly being pulled in a lot of directions. I could spend a day just responding to e-mails alone! Then you have new content you want to create, plus be consistent on social media, people want to interview you, you need to get new photos taken, update your website…etc. There’s just a lot of constant juggling happening. I’ve become an avid list maker-helps a ton!

What is the most rewarding thing?

Getting e-mails or messages telling you how your blog has changed someone’s life and how they’ve switched over their products. People will tell me how much the podcast has helped them. It makes it all worth it and so rewarding. It’s what it’s all about.

Instagram @ Cafe Gratitude

What is your favorite food? drink? restaurant? place to vacation?
Mexican is definitely my fave. Give me some chips and guac and I’m good! I’m a lover of sparkling water-add some lemon or lime makes it even better. My favorite restaurant is definitely Cafe Gratitude even though we don’t have one where I live. Every time I go to L.A. I have to hit it up-so good! Hawaii is definitely my favorite vacation spot-nothing beats the beach.

What one (or 3) words best describes you?

Passionate, driven, consistent

We hope you enjoyed reading about one of our favorite women in vegan lifestyle. Thank you for visiting the LOVE GOODLY blog, where we promote a cruelty-free and nontoxic lifestyle!

Behind the Brand: Interview with 100% Pure Founder

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 3.16.12 PM

100% Pure is one of our favorite beauty brands (we featured two products in our April/May box!), so we hopped at the chance to ask Susie Wang, 100% Pure’s cofounder and chief creative officer, the following questions. As a beauty product innovator and cruelty free advocate bringing us organic and clean beauty, Susie leaves us very inspired!

You are a leader in the clean beauty space, how long have you been around?

I first entered the beauty industry in 2000 because when I was a freshman at UC Berkeley, I bought a vitamin C serum that oxidized and I figured out how to stabilize vitamins from oxidizing in skincare. I patented my invention which attracted the attention of 3 of the largest cosmetic companies which recruited me to work for them. I began working with these 3 large cosmetic brands on their technology, innovation and their formulas. After working with them for 5 years, I learned about all the toxins in cosmetics which inspired me to start 100% PURE.

Why is it important to have a cruelty free brand?

I have a passion to help animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals. I am currently working on helping to find ways to end the Yulin festival in China. For now, I’m supporting Yang XiaoYun in China who goes to the festival to buy the dogs (IG @friendsofyang) By supporting 100% PURE, it gives us the resources to end animal cruelty and to keep doing good for people.

NakedIIretouchedWhat is the most fun part of your business?

The most fun part is creating the healthiest products for women and supporting animal based charities.

What is the most challenging part of your business?

I’m always working on innovation and technology so the most challenging part of what I do is finding improved / healthier ways to make an even better formula, delivery system, packaging, etc.

Juicy Matte Lipsticks

Which of your products is your favorite?

I am currently loving our 100% PURE BB cream and 100% PURE’s Lip and cheek tint. And every single night, I use the 100% PURE Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm.

What is the importance of being 100% Pure to you?

When I walk into a cosmetics store, I feel there should be warning signs in the store and warning labels on the products just as there’s a warning label on tobacco products because most cosmetics contain a ton of toxins that are dangerous and unhealthy for our health and skin. 100% PURE products give you even better results you expect from cosmetics but without the toxins that’s in most other products so there’s no reason why you wouldn’t ant to use 100% Pure.

susiewang (4 of 8)

What is your daily routine (or first thing you do in the morning)?

Kiss my puppies good morning and say a short prayer to thank God for my life. I then jump out of bed for a quick workout and then eat a vegan coconut yogurt with berries and granola. Then I go to work. Usual lunch for me is tofu mushroom soup or a kale salad. Afterwards, I either meet up with a friend, go on a date or spend the evening by myself in a spa or at home reading or watching a movie. For dinner, I mostly eat soup or another salad. During the weekend is when I indulge in whatever I want to eat but during the week, I keep my diet simple and light.

One word that best describes you?

Grateful

We hope you enjoyed reading about one of our favorite vegan beauty and skincare brands. Thank you for visiting the LOVE GOODLY blog, where we promote a cruelty-free and nontoxic lifestyle!

Behind the Brand: One Love Organics

olo-lg-logo

Our coveted Earth Month box is a hit with press, bloggers, and influencers — and they cannot stop raving about the Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum included inside each box! We wanted to know more about the One Love Organics brand and the woman behind it – introducing founder Suzanne LeRoux and what inspired her to start one of vegan beauty and skincare’s top brands.

What inspired you to start One Love Organics?

I have always believed in the power of a well-executed beauty ritual and in the healing power of nature. I was born and raised on a farm in Georgia, where my pharmacist dad taught me the value of combining science and nature to create a holistic approach to health and beauty. Throughout college and law school, I relied on the grounding power of my self-care ritual to boost my physical and mental wellbeing. I loved it so much that I embarked on formal studies in aromatherapy, herbology, and cosmetic chemistry while practicing law full time. After having my sons, my commitment to health and wellness deepened and I was inspired to create clean products that were effective, luxurious, elegant, and supported a healthy lifestyle. My husband, Chase, encouraged me to put my appreciation of nature, analytical abilities, and serious love of a good serum to use to develop the brand.

What is the most fun part of your business?

Making skincare! Unlike most beauty brands, we formulate, manufacture, and package everything ourselves at our small but high tech lab on St. Simons Island –a barrier island off the coast of Georgia where we have lived for over 16 years.

What is the most challenging part of your business?

Making skincare! It took a full year to learn how to best manufacture our products, find the right location, equipment and staff. But what seemed like a daunting task in the beginning has proven to be our smartest business decision. We are not dependent upon the business acumen of a third-party lab. We can ensure that each batch meets our very high expectations. And we have created much-needed jobs in our local community.  We also earned the license to manufacture natural and organic cosmetics under ECOCERT ® standards. One Love Organics now owns the only ECOCERT® licensed manufacturing facility for natural and organic cosmetics in the state of Georgia and is 1 of only 10 such facilities licensed in the United States.

Which of your products is your favorite? 

website_ss_1

The first product I created and one of One Love Organics’ bestseller:  Skin Savior Balm. The ultimate multi-tasker, Skin Savior removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin, moisturizes, illuminates and even turns mineral powder into a glowing foundation treatment. It’s my desert island product!

What is the importance of clean (nontoxic) beauty to you? 

I created One Love Organics to offer a simpler, cleaner approach to beauty. After the birth of my two sons, who are 20 months apart, I felt an overwhelming need to simplify everything, including my beauty routine. I wanted to get back to the essentials. For me, the essentials needed to be effective, pure, safe for my whole family, of the highest quality and serve multiple purposes to earn a spot on my bathroom counter. For example, I dreamed of a cleanser that was great for my face that I could also use in the tub with my babies. I imagined a moisturizer that worked not only for me, but also my husband and my boys. We focus on a few supreme products, not up-selling a medicine cabinet full of mysterious jars. Women have really responded to and appreciate our honesty. You really don’t need a bunch of “stuff” or chemicals to look great and have a truly effective routine.

What is your daily routine (or first thing you do in the morning)? 

Every morning, I drink water, take my supplements, brush my teeth, turn on my favorite music and jump in the shower. I use a gentle foaming cleanser like our Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser from head to toe then while my skin is still damp, I spritz Gardenia + Tea Body Serum for moisture and I just wrap my towel around me and air dry. Then to get ready, I apply a few drops of my favorite serum, moisturizer and then brush on minerals for a bit of color and SPF coverage. I sprinkle dry shampoo in my hair and I am out of the door!

SuzanneLeRouxHeadshot2016.jpgThree words that best describe you?

Happy, courageous, optimistic.

Who is your lifestyle icon?

My lifestyle icon is not a person per se but rather a philosophy. My husband and I both are dedicated fans of the simple living movement. We read The Simple Living Guide by Janet Luhrs when we first got married and it inspired us to make changes. We learned that living simply is not about being frugal or living on a tight budget. It is not about being a minimalist aesthetic or denying pleasure. Rather, living simply is about being fully aware of the choices you make and the life you live and seeing the relationship between the two. We found there is less clutter. Less debt. Less stress. But also so much more. More joy. More freedom. And much more of the things that really matter. This deliberate approach helped us transition from our unhappy careers as attorneys to creating One Love Organics.

Cruelty-Free and Ethical Handbag Brands

hfsblog

You can find high-quality, vegan and ethical alternatives of so many commonly used products, and handbags are certainly no exception. Choosing between chic and kind is a thing of the past, and if you just know where to look, you really can have it all!

Cruel factory farming is not exclusive to food products – in fact, according to PETA, most leather is often sourced from cows used for beef and milk. This means that many of the animals used for leather goods experience all of the horrors of factory farming conditions and then some.

Our human neighbors can often be subjected to harsh working conditions in handbag factories as well, including those of brands who charge premium prices for “luxury craftsmanship.” In 2012, luxury brand Burberry faced controversy over the working conditions of their factories’ workers in China. High-end brand Mulberry faced similar accusations of ill-treatment and low pay in their Turkish factories in 2015. In many cases, large companies require large batches from overseas factories, and cannot oversee the conditions in which these high quotas are met. However, this does not mean you should not shop from companies that source from countries outside of the US or Europe – on the contrary, goods manufacture is how many people from these countries make their livelihood. It’s therefore recommended to shop with companies with a commitment to ethics, who use small-scale factories.

Finding a vegan, socially-conscious handbag line that has chic and luxurious designs may seem like a tall order, but here are three vegan handbag companies who fit the bill:

Hipsters for Sisters

hfsimg2

On trend with the hottest hands-free fashion, these waist bags are anything but fanny packs. Vegan and made in LA, Hipsters for Sisters not only oversees production, but has lunch chats with their factory workers on the reg. LOVE GOODLY proudly stocks these small-but-mighty bags in our shop!

 

GUNAS New Yorkgunasny

According to their site, “What initially began as an all MADE IN NYC label, has now gone global to source and manufacture bags and shoes using artisan and small-scale ethical manufacturers from countries such as India, South Korea, Mexico, Brazil and Hong Kong.” Though they source from small-scale manufacturers, they have a huge product offering with a wide selection of styles! You can find LOVE GOODLY’S favorites for sale in our shop.

Angela Roi

angelaroiblog.PNG

From totes to wallets to stylish mini satchels, Angela Roi’s vegan accessories are the epitome of classic grace. They are dedicated to animal welfare in every aspect of their production, and are official partners of the ASPCA, donating a flat amount to “help mistreated animals and to convey that fashion doesn’t depend on cruelty.” They are also dedicated to the artisans who bring their designs to life, visiting their factories in South Korea quarterly to inspect working conditions.

With handbags, you are quite literally wearing your heart on your sleeve, and these ethical brands help represent your values without cramping your style.
