Vegan and Cruelty Free Skin Care | The Benefits and Advantages
Vegan & Cruelty Free Skin Care Products
If there’s one thing we will never do, here at SIBU beauty, is judge your lifestyle choices, whether you are vegan or enjoy sinking your teeth into a juicy steak once in a while, we can all be friends here and accept each other without judgement.
There certainly are some benefits to enjoying a more primarily-plant based diet, not only for our planet but for your health too. In fact, a whopping quarter of millennials identify as vegans or vegetarians!
Either way, regardless of your food choices, you may want to pay more attention to your skincare products, as there truly are major benefits to using vegan and cruelty-free products and we will discuss them with you in this article.
We believe in freedom of choice, and we also believe that it becomes easier to make those choices when presented with proper facts, so let’s dive in!
Are Vegan & Cruelty Free the Same Thing?
Many people get confused here, but no, they are not the same.
A vegan beauty product is one that contains no animal by-products, whereas a cruelty-free product is one that has not been tested on animals. A cruelty-free beauty product may contain animal products and a vegan product may have been tested on animals, although this is rare.
We highly recommend checking out this site if you are confused.
We are PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free so you can feel good about using our products or sharing them with others.
1. Vegan Beauty Products: Better for Your Health & Skin
One of the major benefits of using vegan and cruelty free products is that you’re paying more attention to what you’re putting on your skin and are less likely to use products brimming with toxic ingredients and potentially harmful synthetics.
A percentage of every single thing you apply to your skin ends up in your bloodstream where it may put your health at risk depending on what it is. So when you make the switch you are thinking about your physical health as well as the health of your skin
2. Vegan Beauty Products: Better for Our Planet
The next major perk is that you’re doing something wonderful for both the planet and all living creatures!
Clean beauty products won’t put the environment at risk when they swirl down the drain because they aren’t made using nasty chemicals that pollute the Earth and our waterways, putting wildlife at risk.
Opting for vegan products also means you’re using products that contain no animal products, but when those products are cruelty-free too, it means you are using products that never put our precious animals at risk.
If you have been confused about vegan beauty and whether or not you should make the switch for yourself, then we hope this article has helped to make things a little more clear for you. If you have any questions please do share them with us in the comments!
