While discussing veganism, most of us immediately think about the food that comes from killing animals. But what about the cosmetics that we put on our skins? Did you notice that our skin absorbs 60% of the products we spread on it? (Team Puristry, February 27, 2018)
Another study found that we absorb 100% of fragrance ingredients!
Now isn’t it scary?
Many of the beauty merchandises that we apply on our skins are full of toxins, substances, synthetic and processed and also contains animal by-products.
Luckily, the demand for vegan makeup is on a rise and it comes as a rescue for those who want to stay away from such brutality.
In case you are trying to make an informed decision about what you put into your body, here are the reasons you should switch to the vegan beauty products.
- 100% cruelty-free: No animals are harmed while creating vegan beauty products. Moreover, they are not tested on animals. Various brands like HAUTO even don’t buy raw ingredients from vendors who do so. If you don’t support animal slaughter and cruelty, the best way to stop it is to discontinue buying the products that contribute to the issue. This thought alone can give you peace of mind.
Made of natural ingredients: Majority of vegan beauty products use natural ingredients. We at HAUTO use highest quality materials sourced from around the world, like seaweed, essential oils, chamomile, soybean extracts, Aloe Vera, natural oils, such as coconut, argan, and rosehip. Vegan products believe in protecting human beings, animals and the mother earth. Such natural ingredients don’t harm your skin in any way and work wonders for it. In fact, many such products use only natural oils, plant-based vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Like the way you feel better when eating natural food, your skin also thrives if it is being fed vegan products.
No dead animal by-products: Did you know that many brands use dead insect extracts, beeswax, lanolin (which is the grease from sheep’s wool, uric acid extracted from cows, carmine (a red color from crushed cochineal insects) and other like substances for their beauty products? The vegan make-ups are free of all and you don’t have to worry about coating your face with dead animal by-products anymore.
Free from harmful chemicals: As vegan products don’t contain any chemicals, they are completely safe for skin and hair. They also lower the chances of getting skin problems and skin diseases like allergies, rashes, acne, and eczema.
Higher-quality: Such cosmetics are composed of all-natural ingredients. We all have experienced that natural beauty products offer the best quality, last longer and apply to the skin smoothly compared to their non-vegan counterparts.
- Good for the earth: By deciding to use vegan makeup, you also contribute towards saving the planet. Vegan companies often use recycled products for their packaging.
When you are supporting a brand that doesn’t use harsh substances, puts a stop to animal testing or animal by-products, you can shop guilt free. Moreover, your skin is definitely going to benefit from the natural ingredients and you will be also happy knowing that you are giving back for a worthwhile situation and also caring for the environment.
