The skincare and cosmetics industry has come under a lot of scrutiny due to the unnecessary testing on animals that has taken place in the name of beauty.
Think about it this way for a moment…the very products that have been designed for us to look and feel good, have had the complete opposite effect on animals such as rabbits, mice, and chimpanzees.
But finding the perfect organic skincare for your needs may not be an easy task, we know that. There are so many choices - where do you possibly begin?
We’d like to encourage you to explore an alternative to mainstream skincare and instead take a look at a different option that can solve many problems we currently face in the beauty industry -- vegan friendly skincare.
Below we’ll take a look at the advantages of vegan skincare and hope this information helps you make the decision to make the switch.
What Are The Advantages Of Using Vegan Skincare And Does It Work?
Did you know that our skin absorbs up to 60% of what we put on it?
Yes, this means that if you’re applying skincare formulated with chemicals to your skin, those toxins are being absorbed directly into your system. Even though you may see quick results from this skincare, you may be causing irreversible damage in the future.
On the other hand, vegan skincare is packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals which work to nourish your skin long term. Plants have been used for centuries to treat many skin issues including chamomile to soothe, jojoba for acne relief, olive leaf for hydration and rose hip for skin regeneration - to name a few of course!
You’ve heard the saying “prevention is better than a cure” and this certainly rings true for your skin.
The advantages don’t stop there…
When choosing to use vegan skincare products, you’re choosing a lifestyle that benefits not only yourself, but the environment as well.
Companies that create vegan friendly skincare are typically much more inclined to do their part for the environment as well when it comes to the packaging. It wouldn’t make much sense to have clean skincare that are then packaged in bottles and boxes that hurt the environment. This is why we only use “biodegradable natural ingredients, recyclable glass, PET packaging, corn starch packing beads, eco-energy for our office and responsible printing and energy efficient printing processes and LDPE recyclable padded satchels.”
Another big advantage of using vegan skincare is that typically it is not tested on animals. Again, it would be contradictory for a company selling vegan skincare to possibly hurt animals by testing on them.
We firmly stand for cruelty-free products and only export to countries that also comply with NO ANIMAL TESTING.
How Do I Get Started With Vegan Skincare?
Getting started with a new skin care regime can seem like a daunting task, but it’s also a very exciting time as well since you are setting yourself up for beautiful skin for the rest of your life!
