WHY VEGAN SKIN CARE WILL ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY AND HELP YOU LOOK AND FEEL YOUR BEST

  

1. NO HARM TO ANIMALS

Choosing vegan + cruelty free skin care is the only way to ensure no harm to animals was caused during the production or testing of skin care products.

 

2. MORE VITAMINS FOR THE SKIN

Plant derived ingredients contain more water, antioxidants and minerals to nourish and hydrate the skin over most traditional brands.

 

3. CLEAR YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN

The use of ingredients derived from animals causes underlying psychological stress known as cognitive dissonance, where your brain tries to simultaneously reconcile your love of animals on one hand, while  supporting harm to other animal species on the other hand. Scientific studies have shown a link between stress and faster aging skin, and more skin inflammation that causes acne breakouts, psoriasis and rosacea. 

 

4. IT’S BETTER FOR THE PLANET

Animal products are the primary cause of environmental damage, including climate change, water depletion, deforestation and soil erosion.

 

5. LESS SKIN IRRITATION AND INFLAMMATION

Animal-derived ingredients can promote inflammation and can often clog pores and promote acne. Products with plant-derived ingredients and fewer chemicals can be a better choice for those with sensitive and problem skin.

 

6. IMPROVED WELL BEING

You feel much healthier and better overall, living a life more aligned with your personal values. Saving lives and living with purpose and compassion gives you peace of mind and less skin stress.   

 

7. PLANT EXTRACTS FEEL BETTER ON THE SKIN

The thought of applying animal-derived ingredients to your face is enough to make most people feel very uncomfortable. Why would we do this when perfectly good plant-based and synthetic alternatives exist?

 

So it's really good.  What's the catch?

  

 It's difficult to find skin care that does not harm animals.  Most brands use animal-derived ingredients or sell in countries like China where animal testing is required.

So what can you do?

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic acid is a common humectant ingredient in serums and face creams that treats dry skin by drawing in moisture to help maintain skin volume and bounce.  Animal-derived versions are made from the fluid of joints or the protein of umbilical cords.  Acceptable vegan options include synthetic alternatives and plant oils.

 

RETINOL

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A molecule and is a powerhouse antioxidant and skin restoring ingredient often used in evening moisturizers.  Animal-derived versions are made from the liver of cows, pigs and fish.  Acceptable vegan alternatives include synthetic versions and carotene sourced from plants and seeds.

 

GLYCERIN

Glycerin is another common humectant found in moisturizers that works to maintain skin hydration.  Animal-derived versions are made from the fat of animals.  Acceptable vegan alternatives include vegetable glycerin and derivatives of seaweed.

 

SQUALENE

Also called squalane, both are an emollient ingredient commonly found in moisturizers that is similar to natural skin oil.  Animal-derived versions are made from the oil of shark livers.  Acceptable vegan options include vegetable emollients made from the oil of olives, wheat or rice bran.

 

STEARIC ACID

Stearic acid is a common skin replenishing oil and thickener used in many skin creams.  Animal-derived versions are made from the animal fat of cows, pigs and sheep.  Acceptable vegan alternatives are sourced from vegetable fats and coconut fat.

 

LANOLIN

Lanolin is a common skin replenishing oil used in skin care moisturizers, cosmetics and medicines.  Animal-derived versions are made from the oil gland secretions found in sheep wool and are a known allergen.  Acceptable vegan alternatives are made from plant and vegetable oils.

 

LACTIC ACID

Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) used in skin care as an exfoliant to break down material that holds dead skin together allowing it to shed naturally.  Animal-derived versions are made from dairy milk. Acceptable vegan alternatives are made from beet sugar, or glycolic acid made from plant sugars.

 

BEESWAX AND HONEY

Beeswax is a common thickening agent used in face creams, moisturizers, makeup, and lipstick.  Honey is often added to skin care as well.  Animal-derived versions are made from boiling the honeycomb from bee colonies.  Acceptable vegan alternatives are made from vegetable oils and candelilla plants.
