What is Natural Vegan?
Natural Vegan is the greenest health and wellness company in the world. Natural Vegan creates personal care and beauty products so natural you could eat them - cruelty free and certified vegan - with permaculture grown organic ingredients. The magic of these products starts with hand picked ingredients on the teams 160 acre solar, wind and micro-hydro powered farm and ends with handmade small batch production, 100% biodegradable and nature friendly packaging.
FYI these products are natural enough to eat but they are not made for taste... so eating them is probably not a great idea. But you can watch us do it! [VIDEO BELOW] (they really weren't that bad)
[MAKE SURE YOU WATCH OUR ANIMAL RESCUE VIDEO IN THE ABOUT US SECTION TOO!]
Why Natural Vegan?
Natural Vegan solves the industry's top issues... and more.
People think the products that they're using are natural, they think natural products need to be expensive, and they spend too much time looking for them. Vegan brands are even more difficult to find and the majority of those in the cruelty-free community admit to settling for non-vegan products AND unnatural. Almost no consumers think about the importance of using all natural biodegradable products and their impact as they go directly back into the environmental life-cycle.
Statistics are pulled from Statista.com and a study of the top 30 brands in each category as per what our current customers were using. This is a percentage of the ingredients in traditional brands and products that advertise as 'natural', that are chemicals, chemical-based and/or synthetics.
Companies, whether manufacturing in-house or overseas, with profit as their bottom line, use chemicals to increase shelf life, provide effects such as foaming, scents, and colour, and as an inexpensive replacement for natural ingredients.
Natural Vegan is completely natural. Jaymie and Hannah demonstrate often by eating our own products (they may not taste good, well, some of them do, but we don't make them for eating so we don't recommend you eat them lol). All of Natural Vegan's products contain No Chemical Ingredients, Formaldehyde Free, Dye Free, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, No Foaming agents, No Unnatural Fragrances (only Pure Essential Oil), and free of any crap that shouldn't be consumed by our bodies.
Your skin and external extremities are your largest surface area, the largest organ in your body. What you soak up enters your body equally as easy as what you eat, so it should be natural.
We have purchased 160 acres in the Okanagan, BC, Canada. This is a an entirely off-grid permaculture farm. We grow, hand pick, and process the majority of our own ingredients.
Why is permaculture important? Permaculture is a system of farming that works with nature rather than against it. This means it keeps the soil healthy, it keeps and improves habitat for animals and insects, sometime, in our case even uses natural water reservoirs. Permaculture uses the genius of nature to deter bugs by placing pest-deterring plants next to pest-attracting plants, for example, so absolutely no pesticides or chemicals or anything of the sort is every sprayed onto or used in the growing process.
Here is some of our ingredients compared to 'natural' competitors, randomly selected out of the top 3 products of each type used by a group of 826 customers prior to finding Natural Vegan. Red test represents chemical, synthetic or animal derived ingredients (most of the red are chemical-based).
How does Natural Vegan do it?
Average brands can't do this because 1, they follow traditional trends in the way they formulate their products, trends that have become unhealthy unnatural and even poisonous; 2, they care too much about profit and trade natural ingredients for cheaper alternatives; 3, they need shelf life.
#3 is a big one. Even if a traditional company wanted to be completely natural their business model would not allow it. A product that's sitting on a shelf or in inventory in a store, not to mention time in the warehouse after large batches have been processed, are going to need a chemical-based preservative.
In contrast, Natural Vegan uses a monthly subscription based business model that allows for on-target small batch production, and a fresh product shipped to your door or to your local health food store or healthy cafe.
Subscriptions can be easily managed on our app.

What People Are Saying About Natural Vegan
We have tested and reviewed out products with over 600 people. Here's what some of them have to say.
“WOW. I honestly cannot believe how clean the products are! I am so happy to have been connected to your brand, I cannot wait to help bring awareness to the awesome things you guys are doing!”
“I am so happy, I know you will go far with this, your products are fantastic.”
“Natural Vegan couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re in need of a brand that caters to our needs with a minimal environmental footprint. Natural Vegan makes it easy.”
"I am impressed, very impressed that a person with limited life experience can be so far ahead of most 40 year olds. Jaymie and Hannah are focussed, driven and organized. I congratulate them on being who they are and understanding that passion and accountability are keys to happiness in business. I have been doing this for 20 years and these two are the future of natural health. Their generation is thinking way outside the box and they are a perfect example of that and I love it!”
“It’s amazing and rare to see an organization have such high standards for their product. The Natural Vegan team goes to crazy lengths to achieve their vision and it has clearly paid off.”
“Wow. Just wow. Let me start off by expressing my admiration for the lengths you've gone to create a product with such high standards. It's very evident that your motivations are outside of just making a profit and are legitimately centred on producing a product that is high quality and done so by creating the least harm possible. Thank you for the time and energy you have put into making Natural Vegan.”

Natural Vegan is the greenest health and wellness company in the world. Why?
This is not a matter of one initiative but the outcome of many, the outcome of taking responsibility for the health of our highly valued clientele and the planet.
This team lives sustainably, grows sustainably, sources sustainably, packages sustainably, operates sustainably, and create products that biodegrade. These products go far beyond conventional standards of natural and vegan and into a class of their own.
Here's some more of our initiatives:
The entire business, all products and packaging have been designed from the ground up. We use a combination of bamboo, sugarcane, hemp paper, and biodegradable cardboard; however, for some products there is not yet a 100% consumer friendly biodegradable option so we have chosen to use spout bags when necessary as they are over 90% less plastic than traditional bottles. We will also have a recycling program.
We continue to invest and obsess over creating the worlds first 100% biodegradable consumer friendly solution to take the place of traditional plastic bottles.
Natural Vegan's farm is the Largest Sustainability land zone in North America. Educational programs will be offered to the public on alternative energy, permaculture farming, natural living, and animal welfare.
This is soon to be the Largest Animal Sanctuary in Canada.
About the Natural Vegan Team:
"I've grown up on the outskirts of Vancouver, always tending to start my own businesses - the count is at about 5 since the time I was 13. I'm now 22 years old, I've been to university for several subjects including electrical and physics. I've worked in the tech industry the past 3 years for some notable companies, Shopify for example, and I've managed a telecommunications SaaS business with annual revenue of 10 million dollars. After all those years and experiences with profiteers and business with lack of purpose I up and sold or shut down my businesses, quit my job, sold everything I own, and decided to start the greenest health and wellness company in the world."
"I grew up on the Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada, but moved to the Vancouver Area 10 years ago. I’ve been vegan for 2.5 years and in that time, my boyfriend and I have rescued a handicapped pig, a handicapped pitbull, a former stray cat, two hens, one rooster, and many pet rats. Since then, I’ve become very passionate about living a healthy, vegan lifestyle and want to help others live the same way, which led me here, starting a company that's going to set ethical standards for all others."

Risks and challenges
We've face our biggest challenges yet. Our biggest challenge thus far has been the development of products that are both natural and vegan. It is somewhat easier to create a truly natural product and a truly vegan product, but to do them both proved very difficult.
We've created all our own biodegradable packaging, we've tested samples rigorously on over 600 people and we know we're ready.
The only thing we need now is the money to make the order. We have come to an agreement with our suppliers that if we can prove the campaign is going to be successful they promise to manufacture and ship our packaging express so we can get it to you by Christmas.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
