According to a statistical report by NPD Group published in March 2018, the sale of vegan beauty products in the United Kingdom has grown by a whopping 38% in the last 12 months! Therefore, it would help you to stay informed on a revolution that started as a decision to not let “eating meat” be a human-nature or a survival-essential.
Let us help you navigate through this practice, which started as a movement and is now being widely made a part of many people’s daily routine.
So, what are vegan products?
Started as a movement to minimize and stop the consumption of animal-derived products, veganism has spread to the fashion and beauty industry as well. Vegan beauty products are products that do not contain any animal or animal-derived ingredients and have not been tested on animals. But since the cruelty-free part is not regulated, products tested on animals but not sourced from animals are also considered vegan. Hence a cruelty-free product does not necessarily mean it is vegan and vice versa.
Why should you choose to switch to vegan products?
Every contribution matters and every choice we make leaves an impact, which is why by doing something as minuscule as shopping for vegan beauty products, you are positively contributing in two significant ways:
Vegan products do not comprise of any animal or animal-derived ingredients and therefore you are helping to promote a healthier lifestyle and helping animals live their lives without any fear and without enduring any cruelty in slaughterhouses.
The packaging materials of vegan products are also recycled and eco-friendly. So vegan products not only save animals, but they also contribute to a healthier environment.
Vegan products contain considerably lesser ingredients than non-vegan products, which is why they are not harsh on the hair and skin and are especially beneficial for people with sensitive and troublesome skin.
Vegan beauty products, contrary to popular belief, also have long-lasting effects on the skin, as most began products are natural. They help in reducing skin issues, such as premature aging signs on the face, hyperpigmentation, and scars, as they do not contain harsh chemicals.
