Vegan beauty products are free of animal-derived ingredients. They exclude all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation. Vegan ingredients are solely plant-based, avoiding all animal byproducts. Exclusions include meat (fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs and honey.
Furthermore, it's also not tested on animals. Veganism has become a lifestyle choice for many people. Reasons include animal welfare, environmental concerns or health choices.
Many skincare lines include animal products. Examples of this include lanolin (derived from sheep’s wool), beeswax, carmine (a red colour crushed from cochineal insects) and uric acids (from cows). Instead, vegans opt for products that are made of animal alternatives. Items such as vegetables, fruits, soy, nuts and seeds are all considered vegan.
Why choose vegan beauty products?
There are a variety of benefits from using vegan labelled products. On top of not harming any animals, the ingredients are mostly natural and less harmful for your skin. Animal products can be harsh and clog pores. This is due to the fats and oils found in the proteins.
Plant-derived ingredients have more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to repair and rehydrate the skin. Natural oils such as Coconut, Argan and Rosehip are rich in vitamin A, C and E. Additionally, these ingredients are highly nourishing and offer added moisture.
Skin is your largest organ so it's important to be mindful of what you use on it. Ingredients found in products are absorbed by the skin and go straight into the bloodstream. Absorption of synthetic ingredients can cause negative side effects.
Vegan products are often considered to be better for sensitive skin. This is one of the many reasons more companies are making a shift to vegan-friendly products.
