Did you know that the average woman in the US uses 168 chemicals in their personal care every day, and up to 60% of what we put on our skin are absorbed into our bloodstream? There's more - up to 89% of personal care/beauty ingredients in the US have not been evaluated by the FDA.
With such lax regulations on beauty and skincare products, it is all the more important that as consumers we make informed and smart choices when we shop. After all, it is our body; it is our health and well-being.
It is with this in mind that Justine Lassoff and Katie Bogue Miller founded Love Goodly, a socially conscious bi-monthly subscription box that delivers only the best cruelty-free, organic, non-GMO, eco-friendly and vegan brands at a great price. With each purchase, Love Goodly gives back to a cause. It has partnered with Farm Sanctuary, Cure Cervical Cancer, and Beagle Freedom Project, with the mission to promote compassion for animals and care for the planet.
Each box contains four to five mostly full size products, ranging from beauty and skincare products, style or home accessories, to healthy snacks and wellness items. Customers are guaranteed great value, since the value of each box is over two times the price. With a Love Goodly subscription, anyone can easily discover nontoxic beauty, eco lifestyle and products that are good for both the body and the planet.
Each brand and product in the box and online store is carefully selected to ensure they are nontoxic and safe. By labelling every item with attributes such as “Gluten Free”, “Vegan”, and “Sustainable Production”, Love Goodly has made it extremely customer-friendly, with causes important to each customer easily identifiable. The company even has a list of banned ingredients, including parabens and phthalates, to ensure that every one of the items from the selected brands are cruelty-free and safe.
For example, its LVX Nail Lacquer is the only luxury, high-fashion, seven toxin-free premium nail lacquer on the market. So in addition to producing a smooth, chip-resistant finish and high shine, LVX provides a vegan, non-toxic and cruelty free alternative to traditional nail lacquers. Other socially and environmentally conscious brands include Blissoma, Pacifica, and Hurraw.
