Here’s some cruelty free, locally made, and stunning style choices for you plant based travelers and fashionistas.
You all may remember cantiq LA being mentioned in my Valentine’s Day post – cantiq LA is a local Los Angeles lingerie brand; the brainchild of designer Chelsea Hughes. Her lingerie is unique, handmade, and comes in a variety of gorgeous colors. I’m obsessed with it!
Chelsea is also releasing a new line of swimwear just in time for those summer pool parties and overseas jaunts that are likely in some of your summer plans. Stay tuned for wet by cantiqLA, coming soon!
The other half of this little collab, Wrenn, is a lovely vegan, cruelty free nail polish brand by Alissa Wrenn Smith. Her “5-free” nail polishes are inspired by the colorful stones featured in the druzy jewelry she makes.
I’m wearing the “Uncorked” color in the photos above.
What is 5-free nail polish?
5-free means that our polishes are NOT made with 5 of the most common and dangerous ingredients found in nail polishes that have been linked to cause cancer: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.
While this does not make 5-free nail polishes “Toxic-Free”, they are a much better alternative to any 3-free or regular nail polishes out there.
For my next pedicure, I’m going to try the “Better off Red” color!
I’m always looking to feature beautiful, unique, vegan/cruelty free brands, and I’m delighted that I can point you all towards small business owners like Chelsea and Alissa who are killing the style game.
Do you have such a brand you’d like to share? Comment below and let me know what I should feature next!
