Go Vegan on your Skin

If we go back a decade ago, the beauty and skincare industry in literal terms, was all about animal slaughter. For years, the skincare industry has used animal by-products, which are deemed to be harmful, for both our skin and the planet. With the advent of veganism (thanks to the millennials), many emerging brands have started making vegan skin care products with plant-based ingredients. If you are a conscious consumer and want to go vegan on your skin, read this article.

Imagine smearing gallons of animal carcass onto your skin. Along with the whereabouts of its purity, the fact that an animal has to die for it to be drawn out is heart-breaking. It is difficult to find skincare products with no animal by-products. As a matter of fact, you can even find one sitting on your bathroom shelf! To avoid this, go vegan on your skin, as they’re full of goodness and no animal brutality!

Imagine, if I would’ve declared the idea of going vegan 10 years back, I would’ve received a thousand pairs of confused, questioning stares. With the years, along with being health concerned, we’ve become aware about the harm that the cosmetic and skincare industry is inflicting upon the environment.

If you ask me, is going vegan worth it (and also dumping my malignant faux leather jacket)? Well, if you care for your health and Earth at the same time (which should be necessary), it is. It definitely is! A faithful vegan lifestyle can promote an ethical approach to your diet as well as lifestyle. 

Throughout the years, the vegan revolution has crawled down from diet, clothes and now towards skin. Vegan skin care products are plant-based that don’t use ingredients with animal or animal by-products like meat, tallows, dairy, eggs, beeswax, honey and many others. 

Men, it’s time to take a stance and switch to a better skin care brand which would hate to harm these innocent beings. 

If you want to switch to a vegan skincare routine, here are some skincare brands promoting veganism:
