In the era of Covid-19, natural disasters and diseases, consciously we start caring more deeply about safety, cleanliness and eco-friendly materials. In particular, it’s more important than ever to look into the components of your intimate products, such as condoms, lubricants, perfume, body wash, shampoo etc. It’s essential for your health and well-being to make sure your daily products won’t harm your body or the environment with the harmful toxins, parabens and pesticides that many are made with.
First thing first, let’s start with the definitions. Eco-friendly means a material or a substance that is better for the environment. Vegan means the absence of animal ingredients, and cruelty-free relates to a product that hasn’t been tested on animals. According to the GlobalData report, for the last three years the percentage of veganism has increased by 600%, which means there is a clear sign of increased acceptance of veganism. For many people, making such a change in daily habits can be quite comprehensive and takes time and effort. As we move towards a cleaner and greener lifestyle, we want to consider paying attention to the recyclability, sustainability and cruelty status of our favorite sex toys, lubricants, condoms and feminine hygiene products.
