We recently bought natural snacks and drinks from Bubble Goods, a website that curates up-and-coming healthy food brands. All products sold on Bubble are free from artificial ingredients, preservatives, and trans fats. It's the perfect place to discover natural food products you can trust, from creamy sesame butter to crunchy chili sauce. See also: Thrive Market review
Bubble Goods calls itself "The Most Transparent Food Marketplace." Like your local natural health food grocer, it's a place where you can trust that the products on the shelves are made with natural ingredients — and where you can almost certainly expect to stumble upon something new, interesting, and delicious. It's easy to browse by category, search products directly, and take your time looking at ingredient labels. Then, your order is shipped quickly to your door. We recently took a closer look at this cool site to show you what to expect and some of the best things to buy.
What you can buy at Bubble Goods Like competitors such as Thrive Market, Bubble Goods is pretty tightly curated. First, it only sells food, drinks, and vitamins and supplements. Every single product goes through a strict approval process where the ingredient list goes under a microscope. Bubble has a list of allowed and restricted ingredients; on the "nice" list are things like coconut oil, agave nectar, and monk fruit, in addition to whole fruits, grains, vinegars, probiotics, nuts, and seeds. On the "naughty" list are artificial and refined sugars and sweeteners, artificial dyes, flavor enhancers, bulking agents, preservatives, trans fats, and more. Only after the brand passes the ingredients guidelines, taste tests, and checks for ethical, sustainable sourcing can it be sold on Bubble. The result is a small but strong collection of innovative, creative, and healthy food products. There are snacks, baked goods, sauces and condiments, pasta and rice, tea, coffee, and more. Within each category, you can filter by dietary choices such as paleo or gluten-free, taste, health benefits, and values (e.g. female-founded, BIPOC-founded).
A few intriguing finds we came across: spirulina popcorn, spicy cashew cheese sauce, and hickory smoked biltong. These are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the variety of Bubble's offerings. While I recognized a few brands, like my favorite granola, gr8nola, I was exposed to many more names that I had never seen before, so it was fun to explore all of them on the site. Recognizing that natural foods are often pricey, Bubble has a whole under-$10 section for options that are both delicious and affordable. On the other side of the spectrum, if you want to treat yourself or a loved one to a gift basket of healthy treats, you can check the gift section for themed bundles. How shipping works Keep in mind that Bubble is a marketplace, not a retailer. That means individual brands are shipping their products to you and Bubble is merely streamlining the browsing experience. If you buy products from five different brands, you'll be receiving five separate shipments rather than one master shipment with all your orders. We found it somewhat annoying to receive multiple email notifications and several cardboard packages, but on the bright side, you do only pay one shipping fee (for two-day standard shipping, prices vary based on your delivery address) for the whole order.
The bottom line Despite the shipping process, we still had a great experience with Bubble Goods. You may be able to find the same products on other sites like Amazon, but Bubble makes it easy, not to mention exciting, to discover new favorites. Its product transparency, ease of browsing, and eye for up-and-coming food brands will keep us coming back for more. Bubble provided me and editor Caitlin Petreycik with promo codes to order from the site. Here's what we got and what we thought. Our favorite products from Bubble Goods: Coffee you can make anywhere as long as you have hot water and a cup
Dripkit Colombia El Mirador Light (5-Pack) Product Embed: Product Name: Dripkit Colombia El Mirador Light (5-Pack) Card Type: small https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f5b94570afbe72fb038d1d9&type=small&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I've heard about Dripkit from social media and coffee lovers, so I was excited to see its coffee was available on Bubble. I'm more of a casual coffee drinker so I opted for the light roast, which turned out to be slightly sweet (just how I like it) and aromatic. While it looks like Bubble offers many intriguing coffee options, from mushroom-infused organic coffee to adaptogenic coffee, Dripkit stood out because of its eye-catching branding and clever and portable pourover design. All you have to do is open the sturdy filter and latch it onto your cup, then pour hot water in to create a fresh brew. —Connie Chen, senior reporter A tasty, nut-free alternative to peanut butter
Seedible Creamy Sesame Butter Product Embed: Product Name: Seedible Creamy Sesame Butter Card Type: small https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f5b94ea19bb5e34e65a787a&type=small&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I went through a big almond butter phase in college, a natural peanut butter phase afterward, and now, it looks like sesame butter is my latest obsession. If you're trying to go nut-free or just want a unique and delicious change for your PB&J sandwiches, oatmeal, and snacks, this sesame butter is the perfect alternative. It has a nutty, toasty flavor and has just a bit of grit to it to remind you this is not your typical, overly processed spread. Yes, it's a bit expensive at $10 a jar, but as an occasional treat and pick-me-up, it does the trick for health-minded gourmands. —Connie Chen, senior reporter Sichuan chili sauce you'll want to put on everything — even ice cream
Fly by Jing Sichuan Chili Crisp Product Embed: Product Name: Fly by Jing Sichuan Chili Crisp Card Type: small https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f5b95ec02495a4833320172&type=small&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Fly by Jing's complex, savory Sichuan Chili Crisp is highly addictive, thanks to its blend of fried chilis, tribute pepper, sesame oil, mushrooms, ginger, seaweed, and more. Yes, it'll burn your tongue like your standard chili sauce, but its multi-layered flavors mean the comedown tastes different every time. So far, I've stirred a spoonful into a bowl of ramen, drizzled it over pizza, and used it to punch up egg sandwiches, and while I haven't added it to ice cream as Bubble suggests, I'm not ruling it out. Pro tip: make sure to dig deep with your spoon to get the chili flakes and spices hiding at the bottom of the jar. —Caitlin Petreycik, editor

I shop at Nuts.com for snacks and pantry items in bulk — even though prices are higher than at Whole Foods, the convenience and breadth of products is undeniable

It also stocks a variety of niche products that aren't available at a typical grocery store, like coconut flour, wheatgrass powder, and even vegan marshmallows. It also offers free shipping for orders of more than $59 and there's a 10% discount for new email subscribers. Read more: A running list of where to buy groceries online when your local store is out of stock Table of Contents Nuts.com is a third-generation, family-owned company that has been selling nuts (obviously), snacks, dried fruit, and other pantry staples for more than 90 years. I placed my first order back in March and have placed three more since then, each time impressed with the vast offerings and quick shipping times. Other team members here have also used Nuts.com and had similar positive experiences too. What is Nuts.com Nuts.com sells more than 3,000 products including artisan, gluten-free, and organic items in a way that's similar to buying in bulk at your local grocery store. Most items come directly from the growers so you can easily buy 1 pound or 10 pounds. A majority of the items are Nuts.com branded, but it does sell products from other brands such as Once Again, Rawmio, and Elmhurst. I'm constantly surprised at how many types of products are available, and that I'm able to do a big bulk of my grocery shopping here. I prefer to buy fresh produce and other groceries in person, so I head to my local market when needed and get meat delivery from my neighborhood butcher. Nuts.com sells a ton: nuts & seeds, dried fruit, cooking, baking, chocolate & sweets, snacks, coffee & tea, superfood powders, and gift items like trays of sweets or dried fruit. If that's too overwhelming, you can also search for organic, gluten-free, raw, and even wholesale. Aside from your basic pantry items, it sells some pretty niche products that may not be available at a typical grocery store such as coconut flour, banana flour, half-popped popcorn in a ton of flavors, wheatgrass powder, activated charcoal, and even vegan marshmallows. There's a wide assortment for anyone who has a specific diet or dietary restrictions. Shipping Orders of $59+ get free shipping, otherwise, shipping is $5.99. My last order was placed on a Monday and the shipment arrived in excellent condition (as did all of my other past orders) on Wednesday. Orders placed before 4 PM EST ship the same business day and those placed on weekends and holidays ship on the first following business day. However, coffees and teas must be ordered before 8 AM EST to ship the same day, according to Nuts.com's website. How prices compare Since Nuts.com buys directly from growers, I was assuming items would be cheaper than buying from a regular grocery store, so I did a little comparison. Nuts.com's unsalted roasted almonds retail for $9.99/lb compared to Whole Foods' in-house 365 brand at $7.99/lb and Woodstock at $7.99/7.5 oz (or around $16/lb). Nuts.com was not the most expensive, but not the cheapest either. Its whole wheat flour is $9.65 for 5 lbs which is a lot more expensive compared to Bob's Red Mill, which sells it for $4.69 for 5 lbs, and King Arthur, which sells the same amount for $5.95. When it comes to snacks, Nuts.com's mini pretzels are $4.99 for a one-pound bag versus Whole Foods' 365 brand, which sells them for $2.49 for a bag of the same size, and Snyders of Hanover, which sells for $3.29. There is no membership program so you just pay for what you buy, no other fees attached. Review of Nuts.com The website is easy to navigate and I love how organized the categories are, making it easy for me to see all that it has to offer. Unfortunately, each time I ordered, there were some items I wanted that were out of stock such as organic sprouted wheat flour, yeast, and whole wheat blueberry bars. Many items are higher in price on Nuts.com, but I'm (usually) able to buy a ton of what I need and from the convenience of my own home on my own time, so the price difference wasn't much of a concern for me. In fact, I usually buy things like roasted almonds, roasted cashews, organic walnuts, Medjool dates, mulberries, goji berries, freeze dried mango, energy squares, pink Himalayan sea salt, whole wheat flour and organic sprouted brown rice, some of which are hard to find in grocery stores, so the availability of hard-to-find items is an advantage. Associate Guides Editor Jen Gushue also uses the site, here's their experience: "I placed a huge order from Nuts.com right around the start of New York City's lockdown. In addition to the several varieties of nuts I ordered for baking and cooking, I also got pretty carried away with snacks — chocolate covered pretzels, dried pineapple, sev, and chana chor garam were particular stand-outs. My order arrived quickly even amid pandemic-related shipping delays. Though costs are a bit high, I was more than willing to pay for the convenience of having these bulk items shipped directly to me, especially during a time when going out in public was a risk, let alone shopping from bulk bins. Everything I've tried so far has been high-quality and has stayed fresh thanks to the resealable bags each item is shipped in. They're good zip-top bags too — none have failed me yet. I'm still working my way through my initial order, but I'll absolutely be placing another one soon. Nuts.com has an incredible variety of nuts, grains, baking ingredients, and, more importantly in my eyes, unique snacks. As I was putting together my initial order, I had to deliberately limit myself because there was so much I wanted to try. On the bright side, it's easy to hit the $59 order minimum needed to get free shipping." Discounts There's a 10% discount for new email subscribers, but it doesn't appear that there are regular promos or discounts on seasonal items like Whole Foods. The bottom line I wish prices were a little cheaper, but being able to order so many items from one site and not having to try to find them at a grocery store made it worth the spend for me. While many of what Nuts.com sells could be available from Amazon and other online markets, the variety of products is so impressive and I've been happy with everything I've tried, so I don't feel the need to go anywhere else.

Serial founder Ning Li previously built 2 multimillion-dollar businesses. Sales at his new cult beauty brand Typology have doubled during the pandemic.
Serial entrepreneur Ning Li founded skincare brand Typology in France and is now launching it in...Serial entrepreneur Ning Li founded skincare brand Typology in France and is now launching it in the UK even as the pandemic bites into consumer spending. Typology joins cult beauty brands such as The Ordinary and The Inkey List in disrupting big, expensive brands with minimalist ingredients, beautiful packaging, and lower prices. Li is the serial founder behind furniture site Made.com and home decor firm MyFab. Typology is backed by French billionaire Xavier Niel, among other investors. Li told Business Insider that international expansion during a pandemic makes sense because marketing is cheaper, and skincare sales are up from consumers under lockdown. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Most founders are looking to hunker down during the pandemic, but serial founder Ning Li is busy expanding. Li is the founder of Typology, a Paris-headquartered beauty brand that taps into the contemporary craze for ethical skincare for well-informed consumers. Li previously cofounded and ran furniture site Made.com, and home decor company MyFab prior to that. Made.com has long been rumored to be on the brink of an IPO, while MyFab was partially sold for $4.3 million. He stepped down as Made.com's CEO in 2016, and spent the next two years dabbling with different projects including, briefly, training as a chef. He founded Typology in 2018 and, while a newcomer to beauty, can boast strong direct-to-consumer credentials. The startup offers beautifully packaged skin serums, oils, and hair care products and is now live in the UK after initially focusing on France and Belgium. Typology undercuts fancy $300 serums and creams Typology's sell is that all its products are vegan and cruelty-free; you can see the (minimalist) key ingredients on the label; and the beautiful bottles fit through your letterbox. It all looks very trendy, with its perfume bottle-like flacons and clear labeling of key ingredient percentages. Anyone who has bought products from brands like The Inkey List or The Ordinary will recognize the aesthetic. And as with the competition, the price is another key selling point. Typology's products look high-end without the high-end price tag. For example, a 15ml Typology bottle containing a 0.3% concentration of the anti-aging ingredient retinol costs £14.80 ($18). Browse through the website of cosmetics retailer Space NK however, and a similar 15ml bottle with an unspecified concentration of retinol costs up to £254 in the UK or $300 in the US. Typology can afford to keep its prices low, Li said, because it currently only deals with consumers direct and has no partnerships with physical or online retailers who will take a slice of the sales. Li says his goal is to demystify skincare. The entrepreneur is married to Roxane Varza, a former TechCrunch journalist and coding advocate who runs the biggest startup factory in Europe, France's Station F. The two have a baby girl, and Li was introduced to the mystifying world of cosmetic ingredients when he tried to buy some moisturizing cream for her. "I'm a bit of a control freak as a person," he told Business Insider. "I'm also very skeptical ... one day I was buying a cream for my daughter, who's now two, and I started Googling — you look at the back of a cream and you start reading those long names, and most of the names I don't understand." Mainstream branded cosmetics are not necessarily unsafe — the likes of L'Oreal, P&G, and other major brands have thousands of scientists who spend years working on formulations. But how companies concoct their formulations has not historically been especially transparent, partly because successful formulations are closely guarded trade secrets. That frustrated Li, who went on a learning expedition and discovered that some ingredients don't necessarily provide any long-term benefits. One example is silicone, which can help a cream or product sit smoothly on your skin. A downside to silicone, Li notes, is that it may be toxic for the environment. One Typology product range, Ten, consists of products with ten or fewer ingredients. "It's a very minimalist and pared-back approach to skincare," said Li. Almost all the products are formulated by the company's own chemists and pharmacists and produced in partnership with labs in France. The startup raised a $10 million seed round in 2019 from backers including French telecoms billionaire Xavier Niel and the UK's Firstminute Capital, with most of the money going towards R&D in its first year. For canny beauty fans, Typology's branding and positioning bears similarities to other disruptors and in some instances, its products are more expensive than, say, those offered by The Ordinary. Still, as the hardcore beauty fans on Reddit's r/SkinCareAddiction forum note, competition is good. Expanding in the middle of a pandemic Typology launches in the UK as citizens continue to face furloughs and redundancies, and as the economy plunges into a recession. But the lockdown has caused odd shifts in consumer behavior — makeup sales may be down, but skincare is up. According to a report from UK retailers Waitrose and John Lewis, skincare sales were up 183% through April. Typology has felt the benefit, Li said, saying that orders had doubled since before the crisis. He pointed to Typology Raw, the startup's range of essential oils. "Pre-crisis we used to ship 300 [or] 400 a day," he said. "Now per day we ship over 1,000 Typology Raw products." Since Typology's products fit through the letterbox, he added, the startup has so far been able to ship with France's national post service, which has remained reliable through the pandemic. Another cost saving has been on marketing. The bulk of Typology's customers, Li said, come via word-of-mouth recommendations, but the remaining 20% come through expensive acquisition channels. With economic activity stalling and businesses closing, there are fewer firms bidding for online ad space and driving up the price. There isn't much point paying for online ads if no one can visit your store, or you can't ship products. But Typology, Li said, has been able to take advantage of the cheaper ad space. That, Li said, has given the company runway even as other startups furlough employees, or seek government handouts to survive. "Initially we thought we were going to need more capital," he said. "And the initial business plan was [that] it would be logical to raise a new round at the end of the year. But we are trading now at more than two times than before and costs actually went down. "We're considering, that if the momentum stays, we could be in a situation where we don't need funding ever again because we are self-sustaining. It's too soon to tell ... but we are definitely positioning ourselves to grow aggressively but also profitably." Brent Hoberman, an investor in Typology and the cofounder of Made.com alongside Li pointed to Li's history of building successful direct-to-consumer startups. Made.com, he noted, was built in the wake of the 2008 financial crash, and Typology may replicate its success. "You've got existing businesses and incumbents being a bit deer in the headlights, and when you're younger, smaller, more agile, you can react quicker," he said. "This is a time you can go back to direct online marketing ... suddenly costs have tumbled. It's a moment to seize market share."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid
The best dewormer for cats will be determined by the type of intestinal parasite your cat...The best dewormer for cats will be determined by the type of intestinal parasite your cat has, but it should be made with powerful active ingredients in an easy-to-administer formula. Though pricey, Bayer Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer is the best cat dewormer on the market and is recommended by veterinarians for being both safe and reliable. Due to high demand related to the coronavirus pandemic, some retailers are facing shipping delays of 7 to 10 days. We've listed multiple purchase options wherever possible. Would you know if your cat had worms? Your cat might look fine on the outside, but worms can hide inside your pet, silently causing harm. Cornell University veterinarians estimate that as many as 45% of cats have intestinal parasites at any given time. Some of the most common intestinal parasites in cats include roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms. In adult cats, parasite infestations may cause mild to moderate digestive symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea and gas. However, heavy infestations, especially in kittens, can lead to more severe digestive symptoms, weight loss, anemia, malnutrition, and restricted growth. Some intestinal parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, can even infect humans as well as cats. Fortunately, treating your cat for worms is easy and shouldn't require much more than an over-the-counter dewormer. Dewormers for cats come in a variety of different formulas for cats of different ages and to treat different types of parasites. To determine what kind of product you need, you'll have to take your cat to the vet for a physical exam and fecal exam (a stool test that reveals what type of worms your cat is infected with). From there, however, you'll be able to treat your cat quickly and easily at home. Lucky for you, we've done the research to find the best dewormers you can buy. You shouldn't skip a visit to your veterinarian, but once you've determined what kind of worms your cat has, you can use one of the following treatments to get rid of them once and for all. Here are the best cat dewormers you can buy: Best cat dewormer overall: Bayer Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer Best dewormer for kittens: Excel Roundworm De-Wormer for Cats Best tapeworm dewormer: Bayer Tapeworm Dewormer Tablets for Cats Best roundworm dewormer: ProSense Liquid Dewormer for Roundworms Best all-natural dewormer: NaturPet D Wormer for Cats and Dogs Updated on 4/01/2020: Updated prices, formatting, and links. Replaced HomeoPet Feline Wrm Clear Drops with Excel Roundworm De-Wormer for Cats.The best cat dewormer overall Bayer's Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer (praziquantel/pyrantel pamoate) is well worth the cost for its safe and reliable eradication of a wide variety of intestinal parasites. If your cat has more than one type of intestinal parasite, a broad-spectrum dewormer can eradicate multiple types of parasites. Broad-spectrum dewormer products are made with powerful active ingredients to provide quick results. Our top pick for the best cat dewormer overall is Bayer's Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer. Bayer's Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer features two powerful active ingredients: pyrantel pamoate and praziquantel. This dewormer comes in easy-to-administer tablet form and is safe for kittens and cats more than 8 weeks old and ranging from 2 to 16 pounds. Though it is expensive, it may actually save you money if your cat gets frequent intestinal parasite infections or if you find yourself treating multiple cats for worms (for instance, rescue groups treating many cats). Pros: Veterinarian recommended, two active ingredients (pyrantel pamoate and praziquantel), broad-spectrum kills several types of worms, safe and reliable, low risk for side effects Cons: Very expensive to purchase, not for kittens younger than 2 months old or kittens weighing less than 2 pounds, some cats dislike the taste The best dewormer for kittens Excel Roundworm De-Wormer for Cats is a safe and effective roundworm treatment for kittens and cats 6 weeks and older. Intestinal parasites, particularly roundworms, are very common in kittens, which can become infected when nursing from their mother. Our top pick for the best dewormer for kittens is Excel Roundworm De-Wormer for Cats (piperazine). This effective dewormer works to detach roundworms from the lining of the intestine and expel them from the kitten's body. The easy-to-administer liquid contains the active ingredient piperazine, which is approved for treatment of roundworms in cats and kittens 6 weeks and older. This product is not recommended for pregnant or nursing female cats. Pros: Safe and effective treatment for roundworms in cats, easy-to-administer liquid, may be used in young kittens older than 6 weeks, cost-effective dewormer available without a prescription Cons: May not be as effective as pyrantel pamoate (Drontal), does not treat tapeworms or hookworms, not for use in pregnant or nursing females The best tapeworm dewormer for cats Bayer's Tapeworm Dewormer Tablets for Cats are proven to kill tapeworms in a single, easy-to-administer dose. If you notice something in your cat's feces that resembles grains of white rice, or you notice him licking or biting the area under his tail, he could have a tapeworm infestation. Cats contract tapeworms when they ingest an infected adult flea. As the tapeworm grows, segments break off and pass in your cat's stool. Bayer's Tablets are the top choice to tackle tapeworm infestations quickly and safely. These tablets come in a three-pack with each tablet containing 23 milligrams of the active ingredient praziquantel. This ingredient is effective against the most common species of tapeworm, Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis, eliminating them in a single dose. The active ingredient praziquantel works to paralyze and eliminate tapeworms. This tablet can be fed whole or crushed and mixed with food. Because cats can become reinfected by ingesting another flea, effectively eliminating tapeworms requires eradicating fleas from your cat, home and yard in addition to treating the tapeworm infection. Pros: Kills tapeworms within 24 hours, easy-to-administer tablet, powerful active ingredient, no prescription required, comes with three tablets, long-trusted brand name Cons: Some cats may experience diarrhea after taking, not for kittens less than 6 weeks of age The best roundworm dewormer for cats ProSense's Liquid Dewormer for Roundworms (piperazine citrate) is easy to administer and is highly effective against common species of feline roundworms. The most common intestinal parasites seen in cats are roundworms. According to the Companion Animal Parasite Council, more than 25% of cats tested positive for the most common feline roundworm, Toxocara cati. In many cases, cats become infected by eating rodents, feces, or other substances containing roundworm eggs. Kittens infected with roundworms often have a distended abdomen (a potbellied appearance). Roundworms feed on the food your cat eats, which, over time, can contribute to malnutrition so it is important to treat roundworm infections right away. ProSense Liquid Dewormer for Roundworms is safe for use in cats and kittens over 6 weeks of age and weighing at least 2.5 pounds. In addition to the more common Toxocara cati roundworm species, ProSense Liquid Dewormer for Roundworms also kills Toxascaris leonine species roundworms. This liquid formulation is easy to administer and highly palatable for cats. You can feed it directly or mix it with your cat's food. Each teaspoon contains 250 milligrams of the active ingredient piperazine citrate, a tried-and-true treatment for Toxocara cati and Toxascaris leonine roundworms. Pros: Highly effective common roundworms, contains 250 milligrams of piperazine citrate per teaspoon, easy-to-administer liquid, cost-effective option Cons: Not for use in cats and kittens younger than 6 weeks or weighing less than 2.5 pounds, high doses may cause vomiting The best all-natural dewormer for cats Made from all-natural, plant-based ingredients NaturPet D Wormer for Cats and Dogs purports to expel a wide variety of worms from your cat's body while also soothing the digestive system. If you don't like the idea of treating your cat with chemical ingredients, you may want to consider an all-natural dewormer. These products are made with plant-based ingredients to promote digestion, helping purge the parasites from your cat's intestinal tract. Natural dewormers may not work as quickly as chemical dewormers, but they may be used for very small and young kittens that are not older enough or weigh enough to take a drug-based dewormer. Our top pick for the best all-natural dewormer for cats is NaturPet D Wormer for Cats and Dogs. NaturPet D Wormer for Cats and Dogs is can be used for both dogs and cats of all ages and sizes. It is a liquid formulation made with a variety of plant-based ingredients, including wormwood to expel parasites, sage to cleanse the digestive system, black walnut to repel worms, and fennel to soothe the lining of the intestines. With twice-daily doses continued over the course of a week, this product works to expel worms from your cat's body in a safe, gentle, and all-natural way. Pros: Made from all-natural ingredients, works for a variety of intestinal parasites, easy-to-administer liquid, clear dosing instructions, safe for cats and dogs Cons: Doesn't kill worms but flushes them out of the body, higher price per unit than other options, requires twice-daily doses for at least a week Check out our other buying guides for cat owners The best hairball medicine Hairballs are inevitable for cats, and if your feline is extra fluffy, it may be a chronic problem.
