Cruelty Free Cleaning!

Cruelty Free Cleaning!

We're all about cleansing here at White Rabbit Skincare - and not just the skin! More and more people are becoming aware of not only the harsh chemicals in certain household products, but also the horrendous animal testing that many big brands still conduct, and therefore are reluctant to use them in their homes.  We thought we'd give you the low down on our favourite bunny-friendly brands, which offer excellent alternatives to household products, and help keep you and your home safe in the knowledge no animals were harmed in the making of your toilet cleaner...

Product Focus: Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water

In a new blog series (and hopefully corresponding Youtube videos!) we are going to discuss each of the products in our range.  First up is the 'funkiest, freshest means of removing your makeup': Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water!  Melanie wanted to develop a product that was just as 'easy' and convenient to use as cleansing wipes, but a lot kinder for your skin (not to mention far more environmentally friendly!). Along with some cotton pads, this is the ideal product to chuck in your gym bag for a pre/post gym freshen up - actress Susie Amy is a fan of...

White Rabbit Turns Two - Thanks To You!

  White Rabbit Skincare is two years old today! When Melanie started out making products (largely for herself) in her kitchen at home some years ago, she could never have imaged that White Rabbit Skincare would progress to where it is today - with so much more to come! The past two years have been a whirlwind of building good foundations and an amazing customer base.  We have attended vegan events such as the Edinburgh Vegan Festival and Vegfest, and have really enjoyed meeting all of you in person and introducing you to the range.  Key highlights include having three products entered into...

The Beard Oil Pledge

We recently had the pleasure of an interview with Bobert Brush, the eccentric founder of The Beard Oil Pledge. Turns out this man has made a pledge to collect every beard oil in the world into one place for the purpose of his giant experiment! As well as relentlessly questioning us about our recipe and inspiration, Bob was keen to do a full review and put our Tea Tree, Rosemary and Lemon beard oil through its paces. Bob’s project has a full charter and complex beard oil review methodology, so we were nervous to see how our recipe held up against the competition!...
