Why Vegan skin care is better

Why Vegan SkinCare is Better

We’ve all heard about a vegan diet, however, vegan skincare can seem a little more complicated. For instance, do cruelty-free and vegan mean the same thing? If not, what’s the difference? This can be confusing to many people. In reality these two terms don’t mean the same thing, even though they’re often used interchangeably. One is based on product content and sourcing, while the other is more about the production process.

Let’s learn more about the difference in cruelty free and vegan products and why vegan skincare is the better.

The Difference Between Vegan and Cruelty-free Products

While the terms vegan and cruelty-free may seem like the same thing, they’re actually different. Cruelty-free rmeans the ingredients in the product/the production process in general don’t use animal testing. Vegan means the ingredients in the formula don’t come from animals. Some of the animal byproducts that could be excluded from a vegan skincare product are:

  • Beeswax
  • Carmine
  • Lanolin
  • Shellac
  • Glycerine
  • Casein
  • Animal Hair

There are many more ingredients than those listed. Doing your research can be vital to finding a truly vegan formula.

Benefits of Vegan Skincare

Vegan products rely on ingredients sourced exclusively from the plant kingdom. And even though the idea of veganism might seem relatively modern, people have been using plants for their skin and hair for centuries! Some of these plants include:

  • Lavender
  • Aloe vera
  • Ginger
  • Chamomile
  • Mint
  • Rose

You can find these, and many other wonderful vegan and cruelty free ingredients in virtually every type of skin and hair product. Rose is popular in anti aging formulas, aloe is an all around skincare staple, and lavender is a champion of gentle products for both adults and children.
