You might be aware of the reasons why people prefer to eat a vegan diet; they believe it is better for their health. It is healthier for the environment, and it is less harsh to animals than meat and dairy products.
Whether or not you agree with all of that, you may not be ready or willing to make a significant lifestyle shift. However, if you want to be more conscious about the products you buy and use on your body, which can seep into your system through your skin, switching to vegan skincare is a simple and effective way to go.
Many animal byproducts are found in everyday skincare and cosmetics, which you may not be aware of. Without understanding what to look for, it's difficult to recognize them by name. Here's why we think vegan skincare is worth try!
What is Vegan Skincare?
To be clear, just because something is labelled "vegan" doesn't imply it's cruelty-free. Nothing in that tube, jar, or bottle should be made from an animal byproduct, according to vegan standards.
In the end, whether you're a vegan or vegan-adjacent customer, look for products that are both vegan and cruelty-free (as side note, "certified organic" does not imply that a product is vegan, cruelty-free, or even effective).
Rich in Vitamins and Antioxidants
Another advantage of vegan skincare products is that substances derived from plants often include more vitamin goodness. Not only that, but antioxidants, minerals, and natural oils help in the repair and maintenance of smooth skin. This will prolong the appearance and feel of your skin.
Vegan Skincare is Affordable for All Skin Types
Because of the recent increase in demand for vegan beauty products, there is now a wide range of options available for everyone (it also means that thanks to supply and demand, you can get vegan skincare for a lower price).
Looking for a moisturizer that won't clog your pores or cause acne breakout? There's no need for animal products when you have a lotion with anti-inflammatory antioxidants from seed oils and some probiotics to balance out the skin's microbiome.
Going Vegan Friendly Helps the Environment
They say nature knows the best. It's only fair that we reciprocate since it takes such good care of us. Best vegan products are also 100% natural and organic. This means they don't harm the environment after they've been used; instead, they break down into non-harmful components and are reused by the environment.
Products like our coffee scrubs, moisturizers, and cleansers help to keep ingredients out of landfills, giving you not only a deep glow but also the satisfaction of knowing that the world is a little bit better.
Vegan Products are Kinder to Your Skin
Vegan products aren't just good for animals; they're also better for your hair and skin. Much of what we put on our skin is absorbed into the body, which is a little-known fact. If the thought of rubbing uric acid (derived from cows) into your pores doesn't make you shudder, know that the alternatives are far gentler and better for sensitive skin. Vegan skincare products are less likely to contain ingredients that cause irritation or allergies.
If you had said the word "vegan" ten years ago, you would have received a wide range of confused and dismissive responses. Fortunately, the benefits of veganism are becoming more apparent every day. The sun is only just rising on a natural, cruelty-free world, as people become more socially aware and health-conscious.
