Happy World Vegan Day! Let’s explore the meaning of veganism, as well as some Vegan-safe products and brands on Poptron! From all-natural soap to the best raw vegan snacks in town, we’ve got you covered!
World Vegan Day is upon us, and there’s no better time to learn what it means to go Vegan! While the whole concept may be daunting for the uninitiated, there’s nothing a little bit of self-education won’t fix. Here are some vegan-safe products and brands that will help you find success if you’re planning to make the switch!
What Does It Mean To Live A Vegan Life?
In a nutshell – pun intended – vegans live their lives without using or consuming products that harm or exploit animals. Therefore, vegan-safe products and foods are those that exclude any and all animal products.
What Is The Difference Between A Vegetarian and A Vegan?
While it is general knowledge that vegetarians avoid meat, there are various choices vegetarians may make when making their dietary choices. Some vegetarians avoid meat for religious reasons, and it is then that the rules are hard and fast; however, others who enjoy vegetarian diets do it for health reasons, and it is then that they can choose to opt in and out of certain ingredients. Pescatarians, for example, cut out all meat but fish and seafood, whilst pesco pollo vegetarians eat fish and chicken, but avoid red meat. For this reason, some vegetarians may also consume dairy products, eggs, and honey.
Vegans avoid all animal products, and therefore adhere to a strict diet comprising only food grown from the lush soil of Mother Earth!

Despite her personal opinions, Nicole Ristic’s homemade and hand cut all natural soaps are absolutely beautiful. Whilst she has been known to call her products rather ugly, we at Poptron think they are absolutely striking, with their grainy visual textures pleasantly recalling the fact that they are lovingly hand crafted and made with only the finest ingredients!
Those adhering, or aspiring to a vegan lifestyle can happily and safely utilise her products; made of an assortment of high-quality ingredients including natural oils like coconut, camellia, olive, castor, apricot, and so on, the bars are then further enhanced with the soothing benefits of essential oils. They’re also highly suitable for sensitive skin, and can even help those with skin conditions like eczema!
