All About Vegan Skin Care

Why Is Vegan Skin Care Important?

When most people hear the word vegan, they think of a diet void of hamburgers and hot dogs. However, vegan doesn’t only apply to food. Skin care products that are vegan are made without the use of animal ingredients or byproducts. This usually means vegan skin care products are mild, natural, and bring nourishment to the skin. Additionally, they contain loads of healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. So, even if you’re not a dietary vegan, you may still want to consider vegan skin care. Read on to find out why.

No Harsh Chemicals

Vegan skin care and beauty products usually contain no harmful or harsh chemicals. This is important especially for those with sensitive skin or skin that is prone to irritation. Because your skin absorbs nearly 60% of the products applied to it, harmful chemicals such as sulfates, phthalates, parabens or preservatives found in non-vegan products can make their way into your body and may cause adverse effects. Using vegan beauty products avoids using harsh chemicals.

No Animal Cruelty

Many skin care and beauty products source ingredients from animals. The process used to obtain these ingredients is not often safe or kind to animals. Beyond, some companies test their products on animals—including chimps, rabbits, mice, and more—and this can cause animals to be exposed to harmful chemicals and conditions. Vegan products avoid animal-cruelty by utilizing ingredients found in nature, like fruits, herbs, and botanicals. So if you’re striving to live a cruelty-free lifestyle, you’ll definitely want to update your skin care routine to only include natural vegan products.

Natural Ingredients

Many people are now paying more attention to what’s in the products they use every day, and for good reason: because our skin is absorbent, the chemicals we use on the outside may affect us on the inside. Vegan skin care and beauty products are natural and minimal. They contain pure ingredients like fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, and other botanicals. These ingredients are full of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that may be beneficial for skin and overall health.

Ensuring A Healthy Environment

Gentle plant-based formulas are not only kind to your skin, but they’re also kind to the earth. The ingredients used to formulate vegan beauty products are often thoughtfully and sustainably harvested, with the goal of ensuring a healthy environment in mind. Vegan skin care aims to create a better planet by obtaining natural ingredients from local and sustainable agriculture and to keep this legacy going for a healthier future.

Healthier Skin Outcomes

We believe vegan products are simply better for your skin. The natural ingredients infuse your skin with healthy nutrients, and over time, using vegan products may produce healthier skin. You may even notice that your skin looks softer, smoother, and more youthful after using vegan skin care products than it ever has.
