#5for5: Shopping for Sensational Soap

Taking care of yourself is important, but so is taking care of our planet. So often name brand soap uses harmful chemicals as well as employing cruel and unnecessary animal testing procedures in development of their products and ingredients.

Here are a few great places we found to purchase cruelty-free soaps in the Lower Mainland:

ENCHANTED MEADOW

SoGa Soap is a proudly Canadian, 100% vegan, and certified crueltyfree shop that sells soaps, bath bombs, mineral salts, lotions, and much more. They are based out in two locations: Vancouver, BC and Winnipeg, MB. The rise of SOGA soap began when the owner suffered from poor kidney function which resulted in extremely dry skin, and in that was a solution: handmade soap.

So if you are interested in not only cruelty-free soaps, you can now also come down to their store, and learn how to make it yourself (how great is that!).
