Transitioning To An All-Vegan Skincare Routine Is Easier Than You Thinkby | July 09, 2019
Veganism has been on the rise for well over a decade, but the idea of turning vegan extends well beyond just diet. It’s more of a lifestyle to be honest. Abstaining from animal-derived food products including dairy and eggs is a not-so-easy, stellar start; but to further assimilate this practice we need to take a good look at all the other things we use on a daily basis that are laden with animal products—like all those skincare products that dot the front of your beauty cabinet.
For long, the beauty industry tested their products on animals and included several animal-derived ingredients in their formulas to boot. However, the ever-growing consciousness of current-day consumers has placed organic, cruelty-free, and animal-friendly practices as a top priority. A few years ago, companies who solely relied on ethical, plant-based vegan ingredients were scarce. Fast forward to present day and you’d be shocked to know how easy it actually is to transition to a completely vegan skincare regime given the beauty industry’s persistent attempts at finding its way around the antiquated route and dedicating research and resources to hone in this new trend of vegan skincare.
If you’re tilting towards switching to a vegan way of life, at least where your skin is concerned, keep an eye out for ingredients such as beeswax, collagen, tallow, carmine, elastin, and lanolin; and look out for the leaping bunny stamp which symbolises that the product has not been tested on animals.
Most people believe that transitioning to vegan skincare is an exhausting process, but we’re here to assure you that it’s actually ridiculously simple. Even if you’re having a hard time convincing yourself to give up meat and seafood, you might actually find it a lot easier to replace the products in your beauty arsenal. And to further entice you, not only are vegan formulas usually organic and concocted from skin-loving ingredients that are efficacious, but they’re also kind to the environment.
