Luxury and animal cruelty don’t mix
We all want smooth, hydrated, glowing skin. Vegan skincare makes that happen -- without sacrificing animals’ well-being.
The skincare industry is one of the biggest contributors to animal cruelty. Every year over 27,000 animals are still being abused to create the products you use daily. Skincare and beauty brands that test on animals and use animal by-products in their self-care products ignore this reality, all at the expense of innocent lives.
There are thousands of proven safe and beneficial ingredients already at our disposal. Animal testing is redundant, unnecessary, and cruel.
Plus, our skin doesn’t even react the same way as the defenseless creatures they test on -- products that might be safe for animals aren’t necessarily safe for us, and vice versa.
Ditch the cruelty and live your values with self-care that cares for others. Your decision isn’t just best for the planet, it’s the best for you, too. Understanding what is vegan skincare is the first step towards changing the skincare industry one plant-based product at a time. Here’s why.
What is vegan skincare?
Vegan skincare is removing animal testing and animal-derived ingredients from any type of skincare product. Vegan skincare normally comes from plant-based ingredients that do not harm any living being in the process of being made.
What's the difference between vegan and non vegan skincare?
The main difference is testing on animals or having 100% cruelty free products. Vegan skincare products do not contain any animal by-products.
Is vegan skincare better for your skin?
Absolutely! Since vegan products are not made from animals or go through processes that require harsh chemicals, using plant-based vegan skincare products can do wonders for your skin. Your skin will absorb non-toxic ingredients.
Benefits of vegan skincare
1. Natural ingredients aren’t harsh on your skin
Vegan botanical products skip the use of animal fats and colorants, instead harnessing the power of plants to accomplish the same skincare goals - but better.
Fatty acids and oils that come from seeds, plants, and algae won’t irritate your skin. Pure essential oils can be too strong when highly concentrated, but high-quality skincare products temper their potency with carrier oils to deliver their beneficial effects the right way (check with your dermatologist however, if you have sensitive skin).
Vegan products imbue your skin with powerful hydration and nutrients, while ditching the chemicals and detrimental processes that non-vegan or synthetic products rely on. Better for you, better for the animals, better for your skin - there’s a lot to love.
2. Veganism is good for the planet
Going vegan is hard - but changing your eating habits isn’t the only way to make an impact. Taking your veganism from food to skincare helps cut down on the pollution created by animal agriculture.
Animal agriculture is the worst emitter of pollutants and greenhouse gases, to the point where it actually causes direct health problems and even deaths for those who live near farms -- not to mention the water inefficiencies, monoculture farmland, transportation pollution, and disproportionate land use.
3. Going vegan is good for healthier skin
Curating a plant-based diet is a first step, but combining it with the power of plants can manifest endless benefits for nourishing soft, healthy skin.
Our skin is our biggest organ, and it’s only natural to take care of it with vitamin rich botanicals.
The vitamin levels in vegan serums flood your skin with goodness at first contact, and you’ll see the benefits in days. Pamper yourself, and get that Vitamin E, C, or D!
4. You help stop animal testing in the skincare industry
Did you know that “cruelty-free” labelling still allows for animal products? How can something be cruelty-free if an animal suffered to make it?
Animals are part of our world, so no product on Earth should come at the cost of any harm to them. Often we take things for granted and just because animals don’t have the same intellectual ability as us humans doesn’t mean we should take advantage or exploit their lives.
We are all part of a sacred circle of life, and we must treat each living being with respect. Each life on earth has its own natural purpose, so let’s let nature be natural.
