The idea for BearEssentials was formed several years ago when Caine became vegan. He found it difficult to ensure he was getting the right amounts of all the nutrients that he needed every day.
So BearEssentials was created as a simple way to make sure that vegans don’t miss out on the vital nutrients that can be a bit harder to obtain. Gummy bears were selected as the ideal form because… well… who doesn’t like gummy bears!
We use a refillable glass jar to store the bears in, and our refill pouches are compostable (these are not only letterbox-friendly, but they also have a smaller carbon pawprint). We secure our jars with recycled paper shreddings – no annoying polystyrene or unnecessary plastic wrappings.
Gemma is our BearEssentials nutritionist that helped to formulate our multivitamin gummy.
Caine founded the company after becoming vegan, to help other vegans meet their daily nutritional targets.
Charlotte is a vegan health blogger and psychology PhD. She also makes sure our Instagram account looks great!
