It’s time for an introduction. My name’s Magdalena Och and I’ve created OchVegan because I believe in a mindful and sustainable lifestyle. At some point, Remi became my partner in crime, amazingly helpful, and motivating. Our soaps are 100% vegan, made using only plant-based oils and butter, essential oils and botanicals, and then packed with minimalistic paper band An important note – you don’t have to be vegan to use our soaps! We hope you’ll enjoy our stories shared here and will discover the beautiful process of mindful baths.
Our mission is to promote veganism. Phew, that was easy! But we’re happy to get into more depth. Toiletry products had been invented to help us keep up with daily hygiene and then to improve the quality of our lives. But never at the cost of causing any harm. We profoundly believe that all the cosmetic companies share the same values, but maybe they are not perceived in the same way. To us, something labelled ‘healthy’, is expected to help us feel better in some way and must not exploit the Earth. At Och Vegan, we make sure that our planet stays beautiful and healthy, too.
It’s about the entire process of how we make and package our soaps and cosmetics. Firstly, we test them on ourselves. Brave? Nah, we know that what we put inside is safe and mostly edible. We go for wholesome ingredients, not settling for cheap substitutes. We firmly refuse to use any plastic. And even though it’s hard sometimes to find alternatives, we make it happen. We also believe that our products are cheaper than mainstream cosmetics. Although you might have to pay a bit more to buy our products, that will be it. We don’t hide any costs that would steadily increase our debt to Nature. That’s why we’re vegan and sustainable. For ours and our descendants’ happy lives!
with lots of love
Magdalena & Remi (and Psylo, the doggo!)
