The health benefits of vegan skin care, along with the ethical reasons, is why the global trend of rejecting chemical-filled health, beauty and skincare products for plant-based, vegan, natural and organic alternatives continues to grow. As a plant-based, vegan, natural and organic skincare range right in on the crest of the wave of this movement let’s take a look at why specifically vegan skincare is a thriving sector and why some experts think this healthier switch could change the skincare and beauty industry for good.
Anti-Ageing Health Benefits
The trick to anti-aging is among other things primarily vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and hydration. Your skin absorbs up to 60% of the skincare products you apply to it. Without animal ingredients, vegan products are better for your skin, especially if you’re someone with sensitive or condition-prone skin. Ingredients sourced from animals can be harsh, so vegan products are a soothing alternative. The hydration aspect of anti-aging is one of the many reasons olive squalene features so often in our vegan skincare range. Olive squalene hydrates while locking in essential moisture. Squalene is a mega-moisture molecule that helps hydrate your skin.
Plant-derived ingredients in many vegan formulas contain more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which may help to repair and hydrate your skin to a deeper level. As your mind and body feel healthier when eating healthy food so will your skin. Applying plant-based, vegan, natural and organic skin care will also help your skin thrive and glow with healthiness. Your skin absorbs these vegan ingredients, and they go straight into the bloodstream. Preservatives, toxins and chemicals can be very irritating for your body and skin.
According to one of Google’s Beauty Trends Report, 2017 was the year that vegan skin care made its mark. It seems that not only are we more aware of not sourcing ingredients from animals we are also interested in the effects components to have on our bodies, environment and health. However, don’t confuse vegan with cruelty-free, there is a difference. Our social media platforms are forever being flooded with stunning models and beauty bloggers joining this chemical-free movement, and they have a strong influence on our consumers.
California touted as one of America’s healthiest state, introduced a Personal Care Products Safety Act, a bill to strengthen regulation of ingredients in personal care products. Increasing evidence is showing that some ingredients in skin care products may be linked to a range of health conditions. Studies suggest that there may be a link between parabens and phthalates with an increased risk of breast cancer.
Entirely avoiding sulphates, petrochemicals, parabens and phthalates is the name of the health benefits game of using vegan skincare. While established luxury skincare brand Estée Lauder is even switching from using potentially harmful ingredients to natural ingredients so are many other skincare ranges.
