VEGAN SKINCARE, BEAUTY & MAKEUP PRODUCTS
Vegan beauty & skincare products are made using 100% plant derived ingredients. This means that vegan products contain no animal derived ingredients or animal by-products such as goats’ milk, honey, beeswax, lanolin, or carmine (red dye made from crushed insects often used in cosmetics and make-up). Animal derived products such as lanolin can cause pores to become clogged leading to pimples and breakouts.
However not all vegan skincare products or vegan makeup products are cruelty-free nor are all cruelty-free products vegan. At Kind to Kin we are passionate advocates of cruelty free beauty and we love all things sustainable and natural. This means that products sourced for the shop are ethically produced, kind to animals and tested only on family and friends.
So, are vegan beauty products and vegan skincare better than their non-counterparts? On the whole, vegan products tend to be mild and gentle formulations that nourish the skin. They are usually made with fewer but more natural ingredients thereby reducing the exposure of chemicals on the skin resulting in less toxins being absorbed into the body. Many vegan beauty and skincare products contain high vitamin, plant-based ingredients which absorb easily into the skin making it ideal choice for people with super sensitive skin that irritate easily. You will find many of the popular natural oils in vegan products such as jojoba, coconut, argan, rosehip, hemp seed oils etc as well as vitamins A, C and E and antioxidants to soothe, calm, repair and hydrate your skin naturally.
