Vegan beauty products are free of animal derived ingredients and seek to exclude all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation. Vegan ingredients are solely plant-based, avoiding all animal products such as meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs and honey. It is also not tested on animals.

Veganism has become a lifestyle choice for many people who are more conscious and concerned about the welfare of animals and the environment. They acknowledge that animals are also sentient beings and want to avoid harming them. Many skincare products include animal products such as lanolin (derived from sheep’s wool), beeswax, carmine (a red colour crushed from cochineal insects) and uric acids (from cows). Instead, vegans opt for food and products that are made of animal alternatives such as vegetables, fruits, soy, nuts and seeds.

Why choose vegan beauty products?

There are a variety of benefits from using products that are vegan. 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. 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. These ingredients are highly nourishing and more effective in their natural state rather than synthetic.

Since the skin is the largest organ of your body, it is important to be mindful of what you put on it. Products are absorbed by the skin and go straight into the blood stream. Absorption of non-vegan and synthetic ingredients can cause negative side effects in the long run. Vegan products are more beneficial for your skin, especially if you have sensitive or condition-prone skin. More and more companies are being more aware of this shift to veganism and are making their products vegan, which means more affordable and cost-effective options will be readily available to everyone.
