The Boy Scout motto of "always be prepared" definitely rings true for a well-stocked first aid kit. Every household should maintain a complete kit with bandages and unexpired medications to be prepared for any emergency. When you are looking for animal-free options for your kit, count on our VeganMed experts to do the legwork for you! Below are four of our favorite animal-free first aid products, but be sure to check out our complete collection on our online marketplace.
Curoxen First Aid Ointment
This ointment acts to prevent infection and speed healing for cuts, scrapes, burns, and blisters. Curoxen's ointment, made from natural ingredients, will not lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant super bugs.
Ingredients: olive extract, calendula, oxygenated olive oil, pure essential oil (lavender)
After Bite Advanced Formula
This bug bite relief uses baking soda and ammonia to neutralize the pH of the bite, relieving symptoms of itchiness, pain, and swelling. Throw After Bite in your purse, keep it in the medicine cabinet, or add it to your camping gear for itch relief when you need it most; the convenient applicator pen makes application and storage easy.
