You may recognize the vegan movement as socially aware and health conscious but still not have a full understanding on the benefits. This can make it difficult to explain the importance of it to your clients and customers!
Between vegan, organic, natural and cruelty free it's hard to know the difference. But each of these terms represent different messages in the skincare industry.
Ingredients sourced from nature
Ingredients are made without pesticides, GMOS, or chemical additives
Ingredients sourced from plants. No animal ingredients, no animal derived products or animal by products
Products that aren’t tested on animals, but can still contain animal based ingredients
Free from ingredients associated with toxic response in humans
So what does this mean and what are the benefits of using vegan skincare ingredients?
Vegan skin care ingredients are natural, minimal, and nourishing, so they’re less likely to lead to irritation or other issues that can come along with chemicals, animal ingredients, or other additives
It is well known that going vegan is beneficial for animals but animals aren't the only ones reaping benefits. Our skin absorbs every ingredient we put on it. Vegan skincare products generally contain less irritant prone ingredients which is good news for all skin conditions!
Plants are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, therefore so are plant based ingredients. These antioxidants help reduce inflammation, prevent environmental damage, and repair your skin!
All in all, plant based is the way to go to achieve that all around glow and build that antioxidant reservoir to defend against free radicals!!
