Why I LOVE Eco Diva Beauty

Do you know what you’re putting onto or into your body!?!?! Well…neither do I!!! One of my MAIN goals for 2015 is educating myself on the products that I use. More importantly, the products that I use on my body on a day to day basis. This is where Eco Diva Beauty comes in. They have done all of the research for me…they’ve hand-picked the best collection of holistically elegant beauty products out there. They offer a wonderful collection of hard to find and LUXURIOUS beauty products…(think Louis Vuitton of purses). They’ve nailed the hammer on the head for me when it come’s to achieving one of my 2015 goals….

If you don’t know Eco Diva Beauty….now you do!!! EVERY single purchase made a portion of the proceeds goes towards caring for the planet…. Think about it, if every brand we use on a daily basis offered something along these lines, maybe our world would be a better place!!! Their high standards don’t stop with ingredients. They look at everything from where the ingredients are harvested, to how the workers who harvest them are treated, and lastly the brands’ integrity and sustainability practices. They’ve done the research so you can shop for non-toxic and eco-friendly beauty products, effortlessly.

Animal-Testing-1

Something so true and so close to my heart is animal abuse. After saving my little noodle from Mexico this past year I started researching the amount of abuse and testing that actually goes on in the world. Specifically beauty testing on animals. More than 100 million animals are poisoned, burned, crippled, and abused in other ways in U.S. labs each year. I completely understand that everyone has different beliefs, but this breaks my heart….It’s crazy to me how little we actually know and how terrible the animals that provide for us get treated.

Animal-Testing-Beagles-China

MY TOP 5 Reasons Why I LOVE Eco Diva Beauty….

  1. They give back to charity with every purchase
  2. They are taking care of the planet – cruelty free and packaged in reusable/recyclable materials
  3. They are empowering and inspiring women to make small changes in all areas of their lives to help the live well and make a positive impact on our planet
  4. They make ECO-FRIENDLY luxurious and cool
  5. You don’t have to sacrifice having nice and pretty things to have safe and non toxic products at Eco diva

One of their strongest beliefs is that over time, when people stop poisoning themselves from the outside in, they will become more beautiful from the inside out. If that’s not heart warmingly beautiful…then I don’t know what is!!!! One change and one step at a time…from everyone!

Some of my FAVORITE products that I’m already addicted to….

    That video was disgusting! Simply awful 🙁 I cant believe how cruel people are. I would love to educate myself better about using products from companies that don’t use animal testing, I wonder if they are some companies like that but that offer a face cream that isn’t $90, maybe more like $45. Jillian, if you know, let me know! 🙂

    I agree!! And although it’s a little bit more expensive I think it’s worth it. It lasts a lot longer then your regular makeup…a little goes a long way!!! AND You are guaranteed that it’s cruelty/animal testing free and it won’t be poisoning your body!!!

    Check out https://www.thehealthandbeautyworld.com/
    They are out of Ontario. Great products and prices!! I use them and ecodiva!

    **Try Soapwalla deodorant. Seriously the only organic/natural one that I have found that really does mask the smell! 🙂

    Jillian, I love you, but if you don’t believe in brands testing on animals, why Is Dior in your favorites and must haves for beauty?

    Hello Jillian, I’m curious if you have heard, tried or know people that have tried Skoah products? I live in calgary where is is relatively dry as you may know and travelling constantly to vancouver and kelowna to visit family so it’s always hard for me to find a good skincare routine that’s natural and not overly expensive. If you have any thoughts on skoah or advice in general I would love to hear it 🙂
    Thank you

    thank you for posting this. i wish we could spread the word even more about animal cruelty & abuse. a few years ago, i started taking inventory of all my beauty & household items and switched to cruelty free brands. it takes time, effort and research, but so worth it!!!

    Thanks so much for this post! i am currently trying to switch offer to all cruelty free beauty products. It’s so refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who is passionate about animals and taking care of them.

    I am so thankful that you have talked about animal testing and going cruelty free. This year I have attempted to go cruelty free with beauty products and household products. I have been successful at everything but contact solution and hair dye from the salon. Please continue to endorse only the brands that are cruelty free!
