The term 'vegan' is no longer solely associated with dietary choices alone, as the popularity of vegan skincare continues to grow within the natural beauty industry.
As well as choosing to remove meat and dairy from your diet, choosing skincare free of animal ingredients, which can be harsh on sensitive skin, is healthier for you and the environment.
Main Benefits of Vegan Skincare:
Our skin absorbs over 50% of the products we apply to it so it is important to make sure that our skincare is not made up of harmful chemicals, toxins, and preservatives.
Vegan skincare products contain plant-based, skin-nourishing antioxidants and nutrients that repair and hydrate the skin.
Just like our bodies, our skin prefers natural ingredients.
Kinder for Animals
Vegan skincare products do not contain animal products and in most cases, vegan products even avoid animal by-products that are ethically sourced. However, you should be aware that not all cruelty-free products are vegan, as many may still contain milk, honey, or lanolin.
So, be sure to check for both vegan and cruelty-free distinctions when making your next beauty purchase.
Vegan skincare has a positive impact on sustainability and pollution which is all based around farming and livestock.
Avoid nasty hidden animal by-products and reduce gas emissions, water usage and harmful land clearing by choosing the natural, environmentally friendly alternative.
Good for Your Health
Switching to vegan skincare is not only better for your skin, you will find it is also better for your health.
By limiting your daily exposure to harsh artificial ingredients, which when absorbed can cause varying health issues, vegan products provide improved wellbeing in the long term and also assist your body in the natural production of collagen, a protein that promotes skin elasticity.
Applied daily and over time, the vitamins and minerals in vegan skincare products will be noticeably beneficial and will not only provide the natural choice for your skin, but at the same time, you will be helping to sustain the planet.
