Vegan products are becoming more popular with an increasing amount of people opting for a plant-based lifestyle. It is the future of skincare and rightfully so. Vegan beauty has been proven to be beneficial to your skin and to the environment.
Consumers are increasingly becoming aware of the detrimental effects non-vegan beauty products are having to your skin, body and to the environment.
What is Vegan Beauty?
Vegan Products are created with plant-based ingredients and are free of any animal derived ingredients. This is including ingredients such as beeswax, honey and collagen to name a few.
Benefits of Vegan Cosmetics?
As vegan beauty products are made from naturally sourced organic ingredients, they tend to be gentler on your skin. This means that if you are more prone to sensitive/irritated skin you are less likely to have an allergic reaction to the ingredients.
You are also guaranteed to not be contributing to the waste of mass produced non-vegan products. Being kind to your skin with these products is a simple way to help with looking after our environment. Think of yourselves as a modern day eco warrior. Making a significant impact on the world can start with being conscious about the products you use on your skin.
Furthermore, vegan beauty products are kind to animals and for the most part are not tested on animals. Which leads us to the difference between vegan and cruelty-free products.
What is the difference between ‘Vegan’ Products and ‘Cruelty-Free’ Products?
It’s easy to assume that vegan products aren’t tested on animals. This predominantly is the case, but isn’t 100% with every vegan beauty brand. Nevertheless, here at Lief Essentials we can guarantee that all of our products are 100% Vegan and 100% cruelty free. We take pride in offering brands that use ingredients that are ethically sourced.
Vegan Products are safer for your body
It has been proven that animal-based ingredients take longer to break down in your body, even up to years. This poses your body at risk of having liver issues. Toxins being broken down and safely removed from your body are a vital process of the functioning of your liver.
Look, we get it! Choosing a completely plant-based way of life may seem daunting to the average person considering to take on the vegan lifestyle. This also includes those that have the ‘flexitarian’ approach to their lifestyle. Regardless, we certainly aren’t here to pass any judgements. We are on a mission to educate you about our amazing brands and what they have to offer for your skin. You are in the right place if you are intrigued to learn more
