Have you thought about switching from non-vegan skin-care products to vegan ones? That’s a choice you won’t regret! Choosing vegan skin-care products can help improve your skin and the world around you. It’s an amazing two-for-one deal.
But we understand that the thought of using new, unfamiliar products on your skin is daunting. If you’re still on the fence about switching, here’s why you should make the switch to vegan skin-care products. Don’t fear vegan skin-care products—embrace them!
Eco-Friendly and No-Cruelty
Because vegan skin-care products don’t contain animal-based ingredients, you won’t find animal fat, shark liver, or other unusual ingredients in your lotions and creams. Most vegan products are also completely cruelty-free. You can rest assured knowing that making your skin-care products didn’t harm any animals.
Vegan products are also more beneficial to the environment than non-vegan ones because they are more sustainably sourced. Animals take more resources to care for (space, food, water, etc.) compared to plants, making non-vegan products more taxing on the environment. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, start with your skin-care routine!
No Questionable Ingredients
What ingredients are on the labels of your current skin-care products? Can you pronounce the names of the ingredients? Probably not. Do you even know what most of them are? Again, probably not. Another reason you should make the switch to vegan skin-care products is that you won’t have to worry about unhealthy and unsafe ingredients of questionable origins.
Vegan skin-care products usually have fewer ingredients than non-vegan ones. The ingredients are also ones you know. There’s nothing more relieving than looking at the label on your skin-care products and realizing you understand what you’re rubbing on your skin.
Natural ingredients that contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are highly beneficial to your skin. For example, aloe vera has anti-inflammatory properties, lavender oil can be anti-bacterial and may help prevent breakouts, and dandelion root is known to stimulate collagen production. Can the ingredients in your current skin-care products do that?
Gentle on Skin
Vegan products are usually gentler on the skin when compared to skin-care products made from synthetic materials. A lot of non-vegan products contain harsh and unsafe ingredients such as polyethylene glycol (PEGs), ethanolamine, and oxybenzone, potentially doing more harm to your skin and overall health than good.
If you notice that a lot of skin-care products with animal or synthetically derived ingredients are too harsh for your skin, using products with naturally derived ingredients may help cut down on irritation or even eliminate it completely. For people with conditions that make the skin extra-sensitive, such as psoriasis, vegan products offer great solutions that can potentially reduce inflammation, irritation, and other symptoms.
