  1. You know it’s a good day when finance meets our faces! Such an amazing breakdown of the “clean beauty” industry, with attention to the nuances of “cruelty free” and misleading packaging/labeling. Thank you for bringing these to light!!

  2. Love how so many vegans, or people who think they are focused on sustainability or being kind to animals don’t even consider workers or production or labor rights just because the majority of those producing all goods and all food are underpaid and overworked and are often also people of color or from former colonial holdings who haven’t been given any kind of reparations.

  3. I’ve been shopping animal cruelty-free for almost a decade now (which feels crazy to say) and one of the first hard lessons you learn is that companies love to greenwash and trick consumers, especially the ones that mean well. After being burned many times, I’ve learned to only trust either Leaping Bunny or Logical Harmony or both. Their research and certifications are the most thorough by far.

    The tricky verbiage brands use to mislead consumers already makes me furious, but companies claiming a formula is “vegan” when the company itself isn’t even cruelty free makes me feel like Hades in that scene of a Hercules when he’s so angry his hair bursts into a massive blazing fire 🤬That’s NOT VEGAN, it is plant-based 😑

    ETA: the PETA certification means literally *nothing*. Companies just pay to be put on their list and PETA does absolutely nothing to confirm it. Never ever trust any logo on packaging unless it is the genuine Leaping Bunny

  4. I feel like it would be great to have your sister on Financial confessions! I'm so interested in the financial side of homesteading and why people choose that lifestyle!

  5. the term i like to use is: simple ingredients. especially if youre supporting small or local brands, it can be pretty easy to find things with only a few ingredients in them and all only things i would be comfortable consuming (like in my mouth) since everything we put on our skin is absorbed into our body just as food is

  6. Can you do a follow up vid about wasting money on “non gmo” foods? I suggest the documentary “Science Moms” as a good starting point for research. (Plus I know the filmmaker, so I’d be happy to put you in touch).

  7. Loved the video! Side note- that shirt is incredible where is it from? Such a classic piece I’ve been looking for something like it for foreverrrrrr

  8. It's not the animals they test the BS on, but our wallets. The best example is the whey proteins which they charge a pretty buck for, but there's a local store here where if you buy local cheese or milk, you get that stuff for free. I had grandparents who grew their own food and had cows for milking. It taught me that the only 100% clean and trustworthy products/ce is the one you grow yourself. But who has time for that, right? hahaha

  9. I agree that “natural” isn’t always better, but sometimes it works pretty well (for me)! And the price tag is not always crazy, in fact some products are on-par with drug store prices. So I do a mix of both-natural products and lab-tested products.

  10. thank you. ive been saying this. these labels are created by companies who simply want to take advantage of the fact that most people are uneducated about basic science topics. you just said it more tactfully

  11. A few years ago (and even now) everyone was obsessed with coconut oil, so coconut oil made its way into everything especially skin care and hygiene products. Well my skin HATES coconut oil and I had a massive flare up of seborrheic dermatitis which I had to treat with topical steroids and rx creams. I actively read every single label to purge coconut oil (and surfactants made from coconut oil) from my products. Flare up is gone.

  12. If you want to know about sulfites, here is goes (I worked for almost 9 years in a liquor store where we sold a ton of wine, and I read up a lot on the subject). Sulfites are a preservative that is usually added to wine to keep it from spoiling. It's also something that is naturally produced by the yeast during fermentation.

    First, two myths about sulfites:

    1. They don't put them in the wine that they sell in Europe.
    2. It causes headaches.

    For the first one, it isn't that they don't add sulfites for the wines sold in Europe. It's that unlike in the US, wine sold in Europe doesn't require the phrase "Contains sulfites" on the label because it's such a standard practice in the industry that you should just assume that the winemakers added sulfites unless it specifically says they didn't.

    The reason why wines sold in the US has "Contains sulfites" on the label is because back in the 1970s, when the salad bars first became popular, it was a common practice to spray the stuff in the salad bar with a lot of sulfites to keep it fresh. This caused problems for people with asthma, and in an overreaction to this, they passed a law saying that if you don't list ingredients, you have to mention if your product contains sulfites.

    As for the medical effects, sulfites can cause reactions in people who have asthma or who have a sulfite sensitivity or allergy (the latter group being estimated at about 1% of the population). When there is a reaction due to sulfites, it's typically in the form of breathing problems. The symptoms do not include headache.

    If you are going to say "But I get headaches when I drink red wine! It must be the sulfites!", well, then…

    Do you get headaches from white wine? No? White wines tend to have higher dosages of sulfites because red wines have tannin, which also helps preserve wine (and I think also react with the sulfites to decrease the sulfite dosage. We used to sell a brand of "Organic wine" (which doesn't have added sulfites, unlike ones that say "Made with organic grapes.") and if you looked on the bottles you'd notice that the white ones would say "Contains only naturally occurring sulfites" while the red ones will say "No detectable sulfites." Also, due to the lack of tannins in white, winemakers tend to add more sulfites for its preservative effect.

    Also, do you get headaches if you eat dried fruit? A serving of most dried fruit will have five times the amount of sulfites.

    The problem is that people would drink red wine, get a headache (there is actually a term called "Red Wine Headache"), look on the label, see "Contains sulfites" and then say "Hey, it must be the sulfites!" No, it's complicated due partly to a person's personal chemistry (one person might get a headache from one red wine but not another, while a second would get a headache from the second, but not the first). It's thought that the most likely culprit for the headaches is the histamines that naturally occur in wine as well as the alcohol (in general red wines tend have higher alcohol than whites, although there are exceptions, obviously).
