Vegan fabric protection: Why choosing cruelty free is the future

Vegan fabric protection: Why choosing cruelty free is the future

You've embraced meat-free Monday, you remember to pack your reusable shopping bags, and now you’re looking to take that next step in sustainable living. Switching to vegan and cruelty-free household products is a great way to support ethical brands and eliminate toxic chemicals and other nasties from your home.


Conscious protection: vegan AND cruelty-free

What are vegan and cruelty-free products?
  • Vegan products do not contain any animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients
  • Cruelty-free products are created without any form of animal testing

Beware, vegan products aren’t necessarily cruelty-free and cruelty-free products aren’t necessarily vegan! 


Ingredients to rethink

Making ethical choices about your fabric protector can be difficult. Just like harmful chemicals, animal products are often listed under long, hard to pronounce names. We’re often left with no clue as to what's actually in the bottle.

Here are a few you’ll need to keep your eye out for:
  • Lanolin – A waxy substance from sheep wool
  • Bees wax – A wax made by bees
  • Oleyl Alcohol – An unsaturated fatty oil from fish
  • Caprylic Acid – A fatty acid from milk
  • Tallow – Rendered beef fat

Unfortunately all of these and many other animal products are common ingredients in mainstream fabric protectors.

To help protect and prolong the life of your upholstery, clothing and car interiors the clean way, look instead for protectors that contain no animal products or toxic ingredients. protectME is a vegan and cruelty free stain guard (not to mention eco friendly) that you can feel good about. With no animal products, no animal testing and fully recyclable packaging; you and your family, fur babies included, can enjoy the benefits of a fresh and stain free home, without the ethical concerns. Read our Ingredients and About us pages to find out more about our ethical commitment.


Love for our animal friends

A sterile, indoor laboratory is no place for an animal. Animals are subject to harmful and often fatal experiments, and it’s no surprise more and more people are making the change to support more sustainable brands that have a conscience. Even if you don’t personally follow a vegan or a plant based diet, choosing ethical and local brands is a no brainer.

There are lots of options available when it comes to stain proofing your life, and it can be hard to navigate the labels while you try to make an ethical choice.

With protectME, you can protect with confidence. Our vegan fabric protector is a cruelty free alternative that hasn’t sacrificed quality. The absence of chemicals and animal products doesn’t mean your home is any less protected.

Our water based, vegan stain guard is proven to perform better than traditional fabric sprays in every way: it is more durable, and won’t poison you or our Mother Earth.

Protect your items from day to day wear and little accidents rather than paying for expensive professional cleaning or replacing them every time they get a stain. If you’re on a journey to reduce your waste, you’ll also appreciate that this leads to less household wastage, a greener, more sustainable lifestyle, plus more money in your pocket.

Protect your home with our vegan stain guard and feel confident about reducing your impact on the environment! For more inspiration on how to live a non-toxic life with your family, check out our other articles and follow us on social media.
