The Ultimate Guide To Buying Vegan Products

After long days at work and stressful weekdays, all anybody wants is to set some time for relaxation and a detox. Often times, our favourite beauty & home products comes in very quirky and  nice to look at packaging but what purpose is there to those factors when you have used up the products? Like what we always remind you of, a zero waste lifestyle is difficult but cutting down on what you already contribute to this big problem creates a massive change in the long run. We have listed our favourite vegan and waste cutting products that are also good for you home, body, and your skin.

Beauty & health is still a priority but the environment can’t always come in second. Check out our favourite brands and the array of items that you can score from them!


Lana PH 

One of our favourites from Lana is their Lash & Brow growth serum. It is made from natural ingredients like castor oil, aloe vera extracts, & a special ingredient called Myristoyl Pentapeptide -17. Reviews have shown how their customers have seen results of a fuller lash and brow set after a week. This naturally formulated product is definitely vegan, cruelty-free, and affordable!



From reusable cotton swabs, gugo shampoo & conditioner, clay masks, and other fun and sustainable products, Matenara is a one-stop-shop for your beauty needs. They have skin care and toiletries nailed down for you. They also have a Tooth Powder in a cute reusable glass bottle so you can get rid of your pesky commercialized toothpaste and its annoying tube packaging.

One of the pioneers of living Zero Waste is Ritual and their Makati store is just a safe haven for clean shopping. Literally. They sell naked borax, detergents, home products, and their liquid hand soap is one of the crowd favourites. Aside from the home essentials that everyone loves, they also have food like Adlai, a sweet Filipino treat called Balikucha, herbs in glass bottles, and other health essentials like their calming smelling salts and their massage oils. Visiting their store is like the Christmas season but sustainable. 


Finn The Label

Last but not the least is one of the most fun because of their cosmetic line. Finn The Label has an all around pallette that has cheek tints, lip tints, a lip balm, and a highlighter in one cute case. They also have refillable lipsticks that you can replenish when you run out. They offer tinted spf for that no make up look and they have shimmer oils all available in their store. Just a plus, all of their raw materials are natural and sourced sustainably and not tested on animals!

There are a lot of stores out there that also offer zero waste products that do not harm the environment, the animals, which also will eventually lead to not harming ourselves. Looking out for our well being is good but looking out for a planet makes everything even better.
