Want to Own a Piece of a Cruelty-Free Company?

Want to Own a Piece of a Cruelty-Free Company?
If you’re a consumer in the cruelty-free beauty space, you’ve come across Petit Vour at least once. They are likely the most well-known and popular cruelty-free beauty box subscription out there. Their online marketplace makes finding cruelty-free beauty products, home goods, and fashions easier than ever. Petit Vour was originally founded in 2012 by Madeline Alcott and Ryan Miner as a beauty subscription box.

We started Petit Vour with the hope of creating a beautiful space that showcased the very best of cruelty-free and vegan beauty. We wanted to make the discovery process super accessible and fun, but also wanted to prove that you don’t need to sacrifice performance or aesthetic when choosing cruelty-free. There are fantastic options and we made it our job to find them.

Petit Vour is known for picking not just cruelty-free brands and vegan products, but also for having really high-quality products that fit current beauty trends. The subscription box model grew quickly and allowed them to expand. It quickly evolved into a large online marketplace for cruelty-free brands carrying Logical Harmony Approved favorites like Au Naturale, 100% Pure, Eye of Horus, Lily Lolo, Ursa Major, OSEA, and many others.

If you’ve been reading Logical Harmony for a long time, you’ll remember when I curated a beauty box with them. Years later, I am still a part of their affiliate program and a customer as well. It’s been really excited to see how it’s changed, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming up next.

As they have grown and evolved over the years, they are now at a point where they are wanting to take the next steps. Through their WeFunder campaign, you have the chance to own a small piece of this quickly growing cruelty-free brand. I was curious about what this campaign meant for Petit Vour as a whole, for the future of the brand, and for those who invested. I figured that if I had these questions, others would as well.

I had a good talk with Petit Vour co-founders Madeline Alcott and Ryan Miner about what this campaign means for Petit Vour, and what it means for those looking to own a piece of this cruelty-free company.

The Ultimate Guide to Help You Go Cruelty-Free

Tips to Go Cruelty-Free

Happy 2019! I hope that you’re all having a wonderful start to the new year! This year more than ever, I’m hearing so many people say that one of their goals is to go cruelty-free. This is amazing! Here on Logical Harmony, through the website, YouTube, and Instagram, I strive to help make being cruelty-free easy. This comes in the form of shopping guides (store, brand, and product specific), sharing new products, Get Ready with Me videos, and more. I like to take a compassionate approach and to encourage everyone no matter where they are. Be sure to check the website often, subscribe on YouTube, and follow on IG to always be in the loop.

2018 was an amazing year for the cruelty-free beauty movement and there were so many major wins for the space. It’s been really exciting and you couldn’t have picked a better time to start your cruelty-free beauty journey. COVERGIRL is now cruelty-free? Heck yeah! Let’s keep seeing these changes in the future! The more brands get on board, the more animals will be saved and the easier being cruelty-free will be for everyone.

When you decide to go cruelty-free, things can be a bit overwhelming at the start. A lot of readers of Logical Harmony are relatively new to cruelty-free and vegan makeup. A lot of you are just starting or are in the process of the transition to cruelty-free makeup. Many readers message and email me asking for tips on how to start the transition. It can be overwhelming to start anything new simply because it can be hard to tell where to start.

I think it’s important to remember that we all went through this process. We all had to start somewhere and we all went through the same things along the way. In this post, I wanted to share my tips to transition to cruelty-free makeup. These are tips that I used in my transition to cruelty-free beauty products and have suggested to others during theirs.
