Vegan Skincare: Why It Matters

From big brands to small ones, more and more are choosing to cut back on the harm they're doing to animals and the planet. Often people wonder if vegan formulas are as effective as non-vegan products. The truth is, without animal ingredients, vegan products can benefit your skin even more so than non-vegan skincare, especially if you have sensitive skin. Some of our favorite private label vegan skincare ingredients include seabuckthorn oil, rosehip seed oil, algae, panthenol, botanical hyaluronic acid, and more. These ingredients are as, if not more effective than their synthetic counterparts since they are closer to their natural state. In this blog, our resident esthetician breaks down everything you need to know about vegan skincare and why it might be the best choice for your business.

The Difference Between Cruelty-free & Vegan Skincare

What's the difference between cruelty-free and vegan skincare? Just because something is labeled cruelty-free does not mean it's vegan. If something is vegan, that means that none of the ingredients originated with an animal. Vegan products use ingredients sourced from plants, no animal ingredients, animal by-products, or animal-derived products. Cruelty-free, on the other hand, refers to products that do not test on animals. Cruelty-free products can still contain animal products such as lanolin, beeswax, honey, and other animals products. 

The Benefits of Vegan Skincare

There are good reasons why vegan skincare is one of the fastest-growing areas in the beauty industry. Consumers are looking for healthier and cleaner skincare products that are kind to their skin and the planet. Here are our top three reasons to consider starting a vegan skincare line:

You get to enjoy a clear conscience when using your favorite skincare products while contributing towards a safer world for animals. The bottom line is that vegan skincare products are better for animals. 

Vegan skincare products generally contain fewer ingredients that are less likely to bother any skin conditions. 

Another benefit of vegan skincare formulas is that the ingredients taken from plants often bring bundles of antioxidants, minerals, and natural oils to soothe and improve your skin's appearance. The skin absorbs whatever ingredients are in the beauty products we use. So it's crucial to choose those ingredients wisely. 

From soothing and moisturizing your skin, all the way to keeping animals from harm and being eco-friendly, vegan skincare offers a plethora of remarkable advantages for your customers and your skincare business!
