I don't know if you've noticed but here at F&N, we gravitate towards people who hand make their products. This extends from not only the dry goods but to our beauty products as well. Almost all of the products in the bathroom have been made to order with love by its purveyors. How cool is that?
This includes our new vanity occupant, Meow Meow Tweet. I know it seems like we carry a ton of stuff from Brooklyn, and it's true, but there's just so much good stuff there!!!!!!!! And this line is most certainly one of them. We are super stoked to be a stockist. They approach all of their products like it's a culinary treat (obvs our ears are perked) by starting with a scent combination. Each concoction is carefully mixed by hand to produce the perfect aroma and healthful benefits, resulting in uniquely therapeutic and aromatic products.
All their goods are made with organic plant oils and butters, steam distilled and cold-pressed essential oils, and organic and wildcrafted botanicals. They use absolutely no animal products. It's completely VEGAN! No carmine, no beeswax, no honey, no palm oil, no lanolin, no tallow. Nothing but the goodness produced by plants. And have we mentioned the scents are INSANELY DELICIOUS! Yes, delicious.
And like our previous Product Feature with Raaka Chocolate, even their packaging is sustainable. They use only glass containers and biodegradable labels. Plus their designs are rad. Jeff, one of the founders, does the illustrations and Tara, another founder, does the graphic design and patterns. Together they create Meow Meow Tweet.
