Sweet Anthem Handmade Perfumes line of perfumes, a gorgeous collection of small batch, handmade fragrances from the PNW that evoke scenes from your favorite literary classics. The story of Juliet, for example, stems from the Shakespearean play (of course!):

A starcross’d love encircled by balmy jasmine sambac flowers, orange blossoms and enchanting spices. Nips of fresh mango and a faintly glimmering sea shore lay the scene and fragrance in fair Verona.

The solid perfumes are beeswax-free and vegan as well, which are on-the-go people should be excited about. Try Phoebe (notes of lavender, maple sugar, and tobacco) and Emily (notes of almond, yuzu, and “honey”), two of our favorites.

Sayblee Darsale‘s handmade and natural hair care products for curls, kinks, coils and frizzy locs in need of some vegan TLC! The hair products also help to promote hair growth and suppress dandruff, another win-win for those of us with dry, itchy scalps or hair in need of stimulation. We bet the lime scent is also to die for. You can buy the haircare online for at-home use or get treated at Sayblee’s Hair Salon in Miami!

We’re excited about all of these and hope you are too!

Salt Way‘s ENTIRE skincare collection, ranging from body oils to bath bombs, salt scrubs and salt soaps. Salt Way’s products are a natural alternative to some bath and skincare items that use sulfates, dyes, and fragrances. Plus, everything contains himalayan salt, which has been getting a lot of positive press over the past few years for being a great skincare (and edible) ingredient. It’s even been reported that bathing in “pink salt” can stimulate your circulation and soothe sore muscles, so grab a bath bomb and get to soakin’.

Willow’s Wonders Cookies, two classic cookie flavors (chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin), free from gluten, dairy, egg, peanuts, and soy! For our gluten-free or nut-allergy vegans, these cookies would be perfect for you! The cookies are now being made in a dedicated allergen-free facility, though for our coconut-sensitive vegans, coconut is an ingredient. Other common allergens, however, won’t be found in these surprisingly-moist gluten-free treats! Vegan, GF, refined sugar-free, Kosher…perfect.

Pleni Naturals is a bath and skin line for baby, toddlers, and children. With wholesome ingredients like fresh raspberries and cucumbers and no toxic ingredients in sight, little vegans will have a blast in the bath–and will be soft and sweet-smelling afterward! Pleni Naturals uses fresh fruits and vegetables to not only soothe the skin, but to also introduce little ones to veggies being, well, fun. Why the focus on these ingredients though? According to founder Allyson,

“Because what we put on our skin goes in our body. And our natural and organic fruit and vegetable ingredients are wholesome, nutritious and packed full of beneficial vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids.”

– THE BROWN CRAYON PROJECT is another great skincare lines for little ones, although it hasn’t launched quite yet! The line, which is all certified, contains bath products, moisturizers and a hair mist. And the best park about the company? The Brown Crayon Project is the first company to make organic products for all the babies of color out there! We can’t wait for the launch and hope the line meets a need that has yet to be met. You can keep up with their progress by signing up to hear about launch news.

We’re excited about all of these and hope you are too!

Soups by Jus by Julie! You could simultaneously beat the summer heat and boost your antioxidant intake with the Roasted Tomato Gazpacho, which sounds amazing and contains ingredients to help your skin glow all summer long. The other soups look great too, and Vegan Action is currently working with Jus by Julie to get their whole product range certified, from juices to “booster shots.

Energy bars and bites by Kiwicha Bar! Made from tasty kiwicha (amaranth), almond butter, dates and other goodies, these little guys will help keep you nourished and ready for the day ahead. They’re also definitely travel and hiker-friendly. Founder Leigh created the bars after trekking through the Peruvian Andes and eating kiwicha to keep her going!

“I trekked for days without access to supermarkets, restaurants or cellular phone service. I crossed the treacherous Salkantay pass at more than 15,000 feet.  My local guide fed me kiwicha. He told me it was the secret food that allowed his ancestors to climb the same mountains centuries before. I brought back what I learned in Peru and made Kiwicha Bar!”

We’re excited about all of these and hope you are too!
