Is Vegan Skincare Better? 

Vegans are a growing market, with this niche now accounting for 6% of the US population. And following on from the rise of veganism, there’s been an increased focus on vegan skincare products too. And it’s not surprising why; research shows that keeping a balanced diet can significantly improve your skin. In fact, studies have found that eating less meat and more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains improves everything from your complexion to your immune system.  As a result, there are now lots of fantastic skincare products that are also vegan-friendly.

What’s So Great About Vegan Skincare?

Vegan skincare products have a number of benefits. For starters, they have fewer chemicals and additives (ours have none) than non-vegan beauty products. That’s because many mainstream non-vegan popular skincare ingredients are derived from animals.  This can make vegan skincare a great choice for those with allergies. Vegans also want to avoid using animal-based products for ethical reasons, so vegan skincare can also be good for your conscience.  Vegan skincare also tends to be more eco-friendly, as many of these brands use recyclable or biodegradable packaging. Vegan skincare is also often free of parabens and sulfates, which can be damaging to the environment.

If it’s noted as organic, that means the company making it is using certified organic ingredients.  If you’re looking for a more sustainable option, you can use this handy guide to find out what ingredients are allowed in vegan skincare products. You’ll find that you can also choose from plenty of vegan skincare products that include minerals, essential oils, and natural extracts.
