Franklin & Whitman Oak Lane Mask Demo #MaskMonday

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

I love trying out new face masks and have been having a lot of fun sharing face mask demos with you. The Franklin & Whitman Oak Lane Mask is made from clay, cocoa, charcoal, and turmeric and claims to leave your skin feeling radiant and renewed. But does it work? Find out in this video! Franklin & Whitman is not only cruelty-free and vegan, but they also donate 5% of their sales to dog rescue organizations. I think it’s great to see brands give back. This is especially impressive to me because it’s from their sales, not profits. Founder Chris Cieri was just on the Katie Dalebout podcast, where he talked a lot about the history of the company and their mission. I highly suggest listening to it. Is Frankin & Whitman Cruelty-Free? Yes. Franklin & Whitman is cruelty-free, and all of their products are also vegan. They are on the Logical Harmony Cruelty-Free Brand List. Is the Franklin & Whitman Oak Lane Mask vegan? Yes. The Franklin & Whitman Oak Lane Mask is vegan. It is free from any animal and animal derived ingredients.

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Makeup Brushes

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

Many Logical Harmony readers ask for help finding cruelty-free makeup brushes. For many people who transition to a cruelty-free beauty routine, switching to cruelty-free makeup brushes is often one of the last steps. So many makeup brushes are made from animal fur or animal hair. While some brands do claim that it is ethically sourced, the truth is that they often don’t know where the fur is sourced from. Just like with false lashes, many animal hair makeup brushes are bi-products of the factory farming or fur industries. While most cruelty-free consumers do focus on avoiding animal testing, many also avoid makeup brushes that are not synthetic. That’s why I decided to create this guide to cruelty-free makeup brushes. There are so many vegan makeup brushes out there to try. All the brands listed do make vegan makeup brushes but may make some non-vegan brushes as well. What are Cruelty-Free Makeup Brushes? Cruelty-free makeup brushes are made from synthetic fibers. They are not made from animal fur or animal hair. Can brands that are cruelty-free make makeup brushes from animal fur or animal hair? Yes. Because the term “cruelty-free” refers to animal testing, brands that do not test on animals can make makeup […]

The Truth Behind May Contain Ingredient Lists

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

One of the most common questions that I get is asking what the May Contain Ingredient Lists on products mean. I get at least a handful of emails each week from confused readers who don’t understand why a product that claims to be vegan has “may contain carmine” or “may contain beeswax” listed on the packaging. Does this mean the product isn’t vegan? Does it contain carmine, beeswax, or other ingredients? This is something I have talked to many brands about. In this post, I share the three common reasons why brands put May Contain Ingredient Lists on their packaging. This is the most recent update of a post I originally published on August 19, 2015. What do may contain ingredient lists mean? Often times after a list of ingredients, you will see “may contain” followed by another list of various ingredients. This is very common on the packaging for cosmetics. Especially for products that contain a variety of shades. There are a few different things that may contain ingredient lists mean, and those will be explained in this post. 1. The brand wants to use one ingredient list for all shades of a product, even if not all of the shades […]
