You’ve heard all about it - going vegan, cruelty-free products, plant-based diets… But what is it all about and what does it mean for the beauty industry? Well let’s take a look at why is everyone hopping onto this bandwagon and see if #vegan #crueltyfree is even worth it?
Going vegan and cruelty-free does not mean that you have to go sign petitions to preserve animals or fight for animal rights, but it basically means that you have to live your life without consuming any animal products and byproducts. Plus, looking closely at skincare and body-care products, the terms veganism and cruelty free could mean that the products have not been tested on animals nor have animals been used to create such products. However, vegan and cruelty free products tend to be more pricey compared to its counterparts due to the extra research needed to be carried out and also the cost incurred to source out alternative ingredients to the more commonly known animal made ingredients. But on the bright side, paying a little bit more may allow you to reap its benefits - Listed below are the few of many benefits of going vegan and cruelty free.
1. You Get To Preserve The Planet!
Brands that are vegan and cruelty free usually opt for more toxic-free and safe ingredients. This is due to the fact that without the use of animal testing, brands would naturally wish to prevent any sort of harm and allergic reactions to occur on their customers. By using more natural ingredients, we would be causing less harm to the planet when tossing out used skincare and bodycare bottles and containers, as they would not pollute the Earth as much as chemical based products.
2. Vegan and Cruelty Free Products Are Safer!
When you choose to use body-care and skincare products that are cruelty free, you are using products free of harsh chemicals like sulfates, artificial scents and parabens. These safer products have a lower chance of causing any health damaging effects like allergies, inflammation and irritation. Without these awful side effects, your skin’s overall health would be better in the long run and you will definitely feel less stressed about your skin’s condition.
3. You Will Feel More At Peace!
By making the choice to only purchase vegan and cruelty free products, you as an empathetic human being would feel much better about taking care of your skin not at the expense of other lives. Knowing that you made the choice to spend your money at an ethical store, will allow you to know that your purchase is making a difference, and maybe even one day stop animal cruelty fully.
4. Become More Mindful With Your Beauty Choices & Practices!
Learning what brands you buy from would definitely make you more wise when it comes to making decisions and choosing what skincare and body-care products to purchase.
