Your guide to vegan skincare products

Your guide to the best vegan skincare products Australia has to offer

How do you know you are ‘buying right’? If you value quality skin products and you want to make better choices, this guide has all the answers. 

What are vegan skincare products? 

Strictly speaking, vegan skincare is made from ingredients which are not derived from animals or animal by-products. 

You may assume your skin cream or makeup would never be made from animals but the reality is quite surprising. Skin products have used animal-based ingredients for many years. This includes soap made with whale blubber, makeup made from crushed up beetles and mink oil in moisturiser. 

The ‘no animal testing’/cruelty free movement pushed for cosmetics and beauty products developed without the need to harm animals. However, this didn’t necessarily mean no animal products were used to make them. Now, planet-conscious buyers are asking for products that include no animal-harming ingredients in the no-harm promise. 

When you see ‘vegan skincare’, the promise may ensure the product has no ingredients like beeswax, milk or sheep’s lanolin. 

Why choose vegan skincare?

The obvious benefit of buying vegan is knowing no animals have been harmed so you can have healthier skin. This will leave you feeling better about your purchases because they align with your values.

Even if you’re not too concerned about animal well-being, keep in mind that farming plants are better for the environment than farming animals. As shared by PETA, seven football fields’ worth of land is bulldozed every minute. This creates room for farmed animals and the crops that feed them. By choosing vegan, you are contributing to more sustainable life on planet earth. 

The other value is for your skin. Generally speaking, vegan skincare products contain fewer ingredients than their non-vegan counterparts. The benefits of this are especially noticed in sensitive skin because there are fewer ingredients to potentially react to. 

From there, it’s all about plants. These miracles of nature are abundant in nutrients that your skin loves. Think revitalising Vitamin C from Quandong, natural Mastic to calm skin redness and irritation, and nature’s superior moisturiser Olive Squalene

Vegan skincare gives your skin the opportunity to replenish itself with nutrients that hydrate and add elasticity.
