Natural Feast Vegan Pies

Natural Feast has introduced three decadent wheat-, gluten-, and soy-free vegan pies. You will savor every bite of plump fruit in their Blueberry, the crumb topping crowning their Apple, or the unimaginably rich cocoa flavor of their Chocolate Mousse. And, just in case none of those appeals to you, Natural Feast also offers vegan pie crusts that will cut a few steps in making your favorite instead.

Max Green Alchemy Lotions

When it comes to cruelty-free, 100 percent-plant-ingredient personal care products, you would be hard-pressed to find richer or more luxurious lotions than Max Green Alchemy’s line. Their unscented Naked Rescue Cream will help to moisturize that itchy winter skin, and their anti-fungal Sole Rescue Foot Balm yields a fresh cedarwood and clove aroma as it soothes sore limbs. Plus, Southerners and snowbirds will find sunburn relief in MGA’s lightly-scented Sun Rescue Cream.
