Following a vegan lifestyle doesn’t need to end with food. It can also expand to vegan skincare. What does it mean? In a nutshell, vegan cosmetics are products that are free from any animal-derived ingredients.
In other words, they do not contain any animal by-products or ingredients. From snail mucin, propolis, lanolin to cholesterol, squalene, these are some of the ingredients that should not be included in beauty products and cosmetics.

How can You tell if a product is vegan?

Certificates and also detailed ingredients list will tell you all information you need. Also, familiarize yourself with animal-derived ingredients and check the ingredients list to ensure you are buying the products you want.

Vegan products are not automatically cruelty-free and vice versa. Vegan products also do not guarantee that they have not been tested on animals. The good news is that as confirmed by the brands all our products are cruelty-free.

What are the benefits on your skin?

Usually natural and/ or organic vegan skincare products tend to be gentler on the skin. They also tend to contain less ingredients which means their application is reducing the risk of an allergic reaction. Moreover, they will be suitable for problematic skin types. If you have extra sensitive, easily irritated, and allergy-prone skin, you may enjoy natural and vegan cosmetics.

In addition, they tend to be richer in vitamins and minerals. They will keep your skin looking and feeling fresh for longer.
