3 Surprising Benefits of Using Plant Based Skincare

November 03, 2019

Plant Based Skincare

Plant-based lifestyles are on the rise, changing everything from our diets to our skincare routines. An increasing number of people are opting for natural, vegan skincare products such as coffee scrubs and salt scrubs in order to obtain healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Whilst plant-based skincare may seem like a trend, research shows there are actually many surprising benefits to using plant-based products as opposed to their animal-based alternatives. Today we present you with three key perks of plant-based skincare.

1. Plant-based skincare is generally safer Safer Skincare

Little regulation regarding mainstream skincare products means that many contain ingredients that are harmful to your skin. These can cause irritation or in severe cases trigger an allergic reaction. On the contrary, plant-based skincare products generally consist of more natural ingredients which are easily identifiable. As a result, you don't have to worry about putting harmful ingredients on your skin. 

Environment2. Plant-based skincare is better for the environment

Opting for plant-based products is better not just for your body but also for the environment. Animal agriculture has been shown to be one of the major sources of climate change and deforestation. As a result, buying products with animal-based ingredients has a negative impact on the planet.

If you really want to reduce your carbon footprint, try to buy from small businesses selling handmade products. Big brands tend to cause a lot of pollution during the manufacturing process. If you buy vegan, natural and handmade you can rest assured your product comes from an ethical business that supports your values.

3. Plant-based skincare can be used to treat a variety of skin conditionsSkin Conditions

The benefits of plant-based products vary depending on the ingredients. However, it is widely agreed upon that natural skincare products can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. These include dry skin, redness and even acne. Plants are rich in natural antioxidants, vitamins and emollients, all of which are known for their exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising properties.


Almost everyone could benefit from a natural plant-based skincare routine. Not only will your skin feel and look healthier but you will be helping look after the Earth too. Making the switch is easy, from exfoliating body scrubs to moisturising lip balm, there's a vegan alternative to everything!
