From soap to nontoxic insect repellent and deodorant cream to a complete facial regime, Meow Meow Tweet is committed to creating pure, all natural, plant and mineral-based formulas. Taking care to thoughtfully source all ingredients for the highest level of efficacy, founders Tara and Jeff infuse each product with beautiful scents that never overpower, and house each product in colourful labels that feature whimsical illustrations by Jeff. Drawing on Tara’s background as a chef, all goods are developed as if they were modern culinary dishes.
With a company name that’s as charming as it is impossible to forget, Meow Meow Tweet was founded in Brooklyn in 2009 by Tara Pelletier and Jeff Kurosaki. The pair possess an innate openness and curiosity that led them to wonder why a gift of handmade goat’s milk soap left their skin feeling so much better than a commercial bar. Together, they set out to learn everything they could about making soap at home. Bolstered by the positive feedback, they went on to found Meow Meow Tweet, named for their two beloved cats and Jeff’s bird.
All products are made with organic, raw plant oils and butters, steam-distilled and cold-pressed essential oils and organic botanicals. Priding themselves on being a vegan brand, they use absolutely no animal-derived ingredients, so all formulas are free of carmine, beeswax, honey, palm oil, lanolin and tallow. A firm belief in taking care of the planet—as well as our skin and ourselves—means that Meow Meow Tweet is committed to using the least amount of plastic packaging. All goods are either packaged in PCW paper, or housed in glass containers.
