Vegan Skincare is forever evolving and has been become a highly demanded requirement for consumers. ‘Vegan’ defines products that do not contain any animal derived ingredients. This goes as far as ingredients such as honey, beeswax and goats’ milk to name a few. There are currently 1.5 million vegans in the UK, estimated to be 3.5 million by the end of 2021. Whilst some may not practice a vegan diet, more and more people are investing in vegan skincare products. This is due to the incredible benefits and a way of implementing an eco-friendlier lifestyle.

This is the perfect facial cream for those with dry and sensitive skin. It soothes and heals damaged skin, leaving your skin protected with its renewed barrier of regenerated skin cells. It easily absorbs into your skin and balances moisture levels for dry skin. If your skin requires extra hydration, you should apply this moisturiser onto your skin whilst it is still damp.
In our previous blog post we recommended that you gently blot your face dry after showering/bathing. This will retain moisture in your skin and will effectively absorb your skincare products.

This face oil will easily absorb into your skin, we recommend applying it after you have moisturised your face.
