It’s 2019 and ethical consumerism is all the buzz this year! Consumers like you and me are doing our research, and demanding products that deliver results while doing good for the world. So it’s no surprise that veganism is boomin! When we hear the word vegan, we usually think of diet... but it can be much more than that. For many, becoming vegan means no longer consuming, purchasing, or using any products that contain animal derivatives, including skincare and beauty products. Keep reading to learn more and to find out which 8 vegan brands we are loving in 2019!
So, what does vegan really mean when we talk about skincare and beauty products?
Vegan products are those that are free from any animal derivatives or by products.
What common ingredients are non-vegan?
Whether you are looking for vegan products or not, we believe it is important to know what you are purchasing and putting on your body! Honey, beeswax, lactic acid derived from milk, collagen derived from fish, gelatin, lanolin, stearic acid are all common ingredients to look out for if you are trying to avoid animal products.
What are the benefits of using Vegan products?
Some of our fav vegan brands choose ingredients that deliver effective results, packed full of plant-derived vitamins and nutrients. Vegan products are formulated without impacting the life of any animals. Our advice when it comes to purchasing anything is always to do your research, be aware, and stay true to you!
