Artic Fox: The Vegan and Cruelty-Free Brand With a Conscience
Jun. 11, 2020
We are living in a time where companies have a moral obligation to provide so much more to consumers than just a good quality product. Customers are getting clued up on where their products come from and simply expect a lot more. We don’t just want beauty products which meet our aesthetic needs, we want brands with heart! Artic Fox has met that need; on all levels.
Self Expression, caring for animals, self love - these are the core values of the people behind Arctic Fox. Founders and couple Kristen Leanne and Ryan Morgan came up with their beauty brand in 2014, when they discovered there was a gap in the market. They could not find a DIY product that embodied their values and also provided super bold colors that stood out. They decided to dive straight in and develop their own brand, combining all things that they loved. And so Artic Fox was born!
It didn't happen overnight. The duo spent two years researching and developing the perfect formula which could deliver above and beyond consumers needs. This included; strong colors, minimal bleed, no stain on your sinks, long lasting, moisturising and with a heavenly scent. They did all this without any drying alcohols or harsh chemicals. No easy feat!
The result? A loyal following addicted to their mega bright and beautiful hues. Designed to mix and match, you can let your imagination run wild and create your own colors by fusing two or more together. Thanks to their high quality ingredients, Artic Fox products are perfect for frequent use and work to hydrate as well as replenish vibrancy, so you don’t have to worry about ruining your hair.
Their emphasis on individuality and self-acceptance ties in with their wild and out there shades. A strong message is echoed on their facebook page ‘Never be bullied into silence. Never allow others to make your decisions. Accept no one's definition of your life, but live yours and define yourself’. It’s this brand story that has helped them build a loyal community which feels connected to their story and their products.
Artic fox donates 15% of their profits directly to charities which are against animal cruelty. Kristen and Ryan are constantly expanding their efforts to assist animals all over the world. In 2020 they had weeks where they donated up to 100% of their online sales to various non-profit organizations. Living their brand, they would visit the charities themselves and find ways in which the money donated could help most effectively.
One of their best sellers is Arctic Fox Vegan and Cruelty-Free Semi-Permanent Hair Color Dye (4 Fl Oz, AQUAMARINE) retailing at $18.99 which comes in a turquoise shade, delivering pure mermaid vibes. Highly pigmented it works on all shades of hair from pre-bleached to darker brunettes. If you suffer from brassy blonde hair, you can mix it with Purple Rain to have a beautiful rich indigo hue, lasting 4-8 weeks. Their product range is vast, having expanded to cute accessories such as fun stickers, glittery phone cases and rainbow tint sets.

The future is sustainability, eco-friendly, chemical free and cruelty free and Artic Fox are rising to the challenge.
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
