6 REASONS TO USE VEGAN SKINCARE
1 - You know what you're putting on your skin.
As a society, we have become way more vigilant about reading ingredient lists on food to what we're eating. We should be doing the same with what goes on our skin.
2 - Vegan Skincare products are less toxic.
While this may not be true for every single vegan product out there, for the most part, vegan skincare products contain less toxic chemicals. By using healthier, plant based products, you are reducing the risk of harmful toxins being absorbed into your system. However small amount those ingredients may be, they do build up over time. So the more beneficial ingredients the better.
3 - Plant based products are loaded with antioxidants.
You know all those antioxidants which are supposed to be super good for your skin? Well, they're found in plants! Some great examples are found in our products. They are Organic Camellia Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Jojoba Oil - and many more! Antioxidants have many benefits for your skin, such as protecting you from free-radical damage (anti-aging), toning, and brightening you skin. Bring on the antioxidants!
4 - Vegan products are overall gentler on the skin.
By creating products that are natural and plant based, we're creating something that is beneficial - especially for sensitive skin. Plant based ingredients are gentler on all skin types and less like to cause irritation. Vegan products are often favorites of people with sensitive, allergy-prone skin. In addition to being gentle, the ingredients is nourishing as well.
5 - You won't be harming any animals.
In fact, you will be saving loads of animals! The harmful effects are two folds with animal products. First, are the components that are literally made from animals. It may not be obvious by the name of the ingredients, but many common skincare ingredients such as gelatin, collagen, and retinol are derived from animals. Second, is that vegan products are cruelty free for the most part. At least ours are. When buying vegan skincare, check to see if they are cruelty free. So you can rest assured that you are not harming any furry friends.
6 - Vegan products are better for the environment.
A big reason why many people choose to become vegans is to benefit the environment. The same can be said about vegan beauty. Animal agriculture is a leading factor the contributes to pollution and climate change. By eliminating animal byproducts from skincare, we help reduce the amount of damage that we humans do to the planet. Trust us, mother earth has faced enough damage already!
We hope we've inspired you to try vegan skincare products! Your skin, the animals, and the environments will thank you!
