OTBC Vegan Body Scrubs

Selecting a cruelty-free vegan body scrub that both exfoliates excellently and moisturizes magnificently…but without harsh chemicals, preservatives, dyes, and fragrances and produced by a company that is making a conscious effort to respect the environment… can often seem impossible.

The same can be said about most cosmetic and skincare product.

But there are a few things to keep in mind as you shop..


First of all, look for the Leaping Bunny Certification or the PETA Cruelty-Free Certification stampedon the back of the product next to the ingredient list.

Next avoid products that contain animal by-products, such as…

  • Beta Carotene
  • Biotin
  • Carbamide
  • Cetyl Alcohol
  • Collagen
  • Glycerin
  • Lauric Acid
  • Myristic Acid
  • Oleic Acid
  • Palmitic Acid
  • Stearic Acid

Finally check product labels for any other concerns you might have…such as silicones, preservatives, artificial dyes, fake fragrances, gluten, and GMOs.
