Guide to Vegan Shower Gels
Here at Noble Isle, we like to think of the New Year as a chance to make a fresh start. To set New Year resolutions that that are easy to keep, such as the chance to make your life that little bit more planet-friendly.
We don’t think that you should have to compromise on the things you love in order to do your bit for the world around us. We think that planet-friendly products should just be part of the package.
We’re also extremley proud to announce that Noble Isle are the winners of Best Vegan-Friendly Home Fragrance Collection in the Global Vegan Awards 2023 with LuxLife! The award is testament to our commitment to sustainability initiatives as we believe Luxury should never compromise. All of the products at Noble Isle are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, use natural extracts and are made with real perfume.
Here’s our guide to vegan shower gels, Veganuary and everything else you need to know about making conscious choices this 2024.
What is Veganuary?
Veganuary is an annual challenge, started in 2014, promoted by The Vegan Society, that encourages people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January.
It was originally started to alter the public opinion about becoming vegan. It has been phenomenally successful with over 85% of non-vegan participants reducing their consumption of animal products.
How Does Being Vegan Help the Planet?
There have been several studies that demonstrate that if we switched to a vegan diet, we could massively help to reduce carbon emissions. Some studies even suggest that if we all went vegan, we could cut the world’s food related emissions by 68% within 15 years.
Often when we think about veganism, it’s heavily associated with the food we eat but we don’t necessarily think about the products we use on our bodies. We all look to choose products that are cruelty-free but we don’t take the next step to check if the products we’re using are vegan too.
There are many options when you search for ingredients to make bath & body products. Often the vegan options of how certain ingredients are derived are much more expensive so companies opt not to use these. Here at Noble Isle, we love animals. You will have seen many a photo of our founder, Katy Simpson, with her beloved dogs, Hoagie & Slippers. The welfare of animals is extremely important to us.
We always opt for ingredients that come from non-animal sources and we have a rigorous audit process to ensure no cross-contamination anywhere in our manufacturing process. We also manufacture everything ourselves at our factory in Chester.
How Do I Look For Vegan Shower Gel?
A simple way to find a vegan shower gel is to look for the logo from The Vegan Society. We’re currently in the process of seeking our approval and hope to share this with you very soon!
Most liquid shower gels are vegan as they are detergent based whereas hard soaps are created from rendered animal fats.
There are also other ingredients to look out for such as honey, beeswax, lanolin, albumen, carmine and collagen. All are ingredients that can be found in cosmetic products from body creams to shower gels to shampoos and all are non-vegan ingredients.
The Vegan Shower Gel Round-Up
All of our Bath & Shower Gels at Noble Isle are vegan. They contain natural ingredients and extracts sourced from celebrated producers around the British Isles. They are gently foaming, high-quality gels that are all created with real perfume making each experience one to relax in.
We are intensely proud of our range of vegan shower gels. They are all derived of uniquely complex and eclectic fragrances that are created with the same top, heart and base notes you would find in perfume and aftershave.
Here are a few of our favourites:
The Scots Pine Vegan Shower Gel is a fresh, evergreen scent with notes of Fir, Juniper Berries, Violet and Cedarwood, and natural extracts of Scots Pine and Heather.
The Scots Pine Luxury Vegan Shower Gel is designed to take you on an enchanted journey through Scotland’s ancient forests from the comfort of your morning shower. Feel the benefits of the brisk country air and the serenity of nature all before you leave for the office.
It’s everything we want to feel this Veganuary, fresh, green and at one with nature.
Willow Song Vegan Shower Gel an unreservedly romantic fragrance, remindful of floaty green florals of Lily of the Valley, Rose and Ivy blended with mellow woody notes of Cedarwood and Musk.
Unwind with our calming, serene Willow Song Luxury Vegan Shower Gel. Let the soft, poetic florals filter through your home and take you back to tranquil fresh spring mornings. Fill your bathroom with the scents of freshly cut flowers.
Another green, floral scent and the perfect substitute to a freshly bouquet of flowers.
The Greenhouse Vegan Shower Gel, a warm, botanical fragrance reminiscent of an English greenhouse at the height of summer, gathering Bergamot, Honeysuckle, and Jasmine, refreshing hints of Mint and Melon, and the unmistakably earthy scent of Tomato Leaf.
Invigorate your morning with a shower filled with the balmy scents of summer or relax in a luxurious Bubble Bath steeped in fragrance.
The final in our hat trick of green fragrances to bring nature back into the home in the most elegantly fragrant way possible.
