It goes without saying that there are no animal ingredients in vegan cosmetics. However, that is not the only difference between ‘regular’ and vegan make-up and skin care cosmetics. We have listed the differences and the benefits for you, so from now on you can make a well-considered choice and… know what you’re lubricating.
Vegan cosmetics and skin care generally contains fewer ingredients. That makes your skin happy! The less you put on your face, the better it is for the condition of your skin.
Wrinkles are not combated with chemical substances, but with a good moisture content and vitamins. Vegan products and skin oils are pro in this.
Animal testing free
The third benefit is that vegan cosmetics have not been tested on animals. After all, that is not what the animals were born for, is it?
Better for the environment
By opting for vegan make-up, you are doing your bit for a healthier planet. According to various reports, livestock farming and everything associated with it has the greatest impact on climate change. If you choose products without animal ingredients, then you are not participating.
Even better for your skin
Animal ingredients found in cosmetics can be harmful to your skin. An example is lanolin. This ingredient comes from sheep’s wool and irritates sensitive skin.
Against dry skin
Your dry skin will disappear as soon as you use vegan facial care, as these generally contain much more water. What’s more, botanical ingredients are easily absorbed by the skin, keeping your skin super hydrated all day long.
Also great for sensitive skin
Because there are fewer and often natural ingredients in vegan cosmetics and skin care, your skin is less likely to become irritated. What more does sensitive skin want!
Less oily skin
Thanks to the good hydration of plant-based ingredients, the skin’s greasiness decreases rapidly.
Rich in vitamins
Vegetable make-up and care products are usually high in vitamins. This ensures, depending on
what vitamin, that it:
- counteracts the ageing process of the skin;
- reduces puffiness
- gives your skin a healthy glow.
Vegan care products are – often – equal to more pure and natural ingredients. By reducing or even eliminating the number of chemical ingredients, you keep your body as healthy inside as it is outside.
No animal suffering
You improve the condition of your skin without causing animal suffering. I say: win-win!
Less chance of an allergic reaction
The chance of an allergic reaction is less due to the natural ingredients. To be sure, always test the product on your wrist before applying it to your face. Better safe than sorry.
Save animal lives
There is no animal involved in your make-up article. Isn’t the ‘saving of animal life’ reason enough to choose vegan cosmetics?
Know what you lubricate
Finally, know what you really put on your face and what gets into your skin. Say bye bye to that (chemical) mess and welcome vegan & natural cosmetics. Doesn’t that make you feel nice and clear?
