What Does Vegan Skincare Mean

April 17, 2019

Being vegan means more than just avoiding meat and dairy products in your diet, it also means cutting out animal products from every aspect of your life. These days that is easier said than done, with many household products, including fabric softeners and shampoo, containing animal products in one form or another.

The same is true for skincare. Most over the counter skin care products contain animal extracts which makes them unsuitable for use by vegans. But you don’t have to put up with animal products in your daily skincare routine. A wide range of natural skincare products is now available which don’t contain any traces of animal / by-product.

Natural and free from chemicals

Because the skin absorbs 60% of the products we apply to it, many of the chemicals contained in traditional skin care products are consumed by the body. When you look at some of the chemicals and toxins which these products contain that is a scary thought.

By using a natural skincare product, like our Men’s Botanics Face Care range, you can be sure that only natural ingredients such as Cocoa Butter, Sunflower oil and Kakadu Plum extract are absorbed.

These natural products also contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which help to provide nutrients the skin needs. This improves hydration and helps to repair UV damage caused by the sun. And it’s not just vegans who benefit. People with sensitive skin and those who suffer from condition-prone skin will also benefit from switching to a natural animal-free vegan skincare alternative because there are no nasty chemicals to irritate the skin.

What’s the difference between vegan and cruelty-free?

Many people associate vegan products with cruelty-free products but they are not the same thing. To qualify as vegan, a product must not contain any animal-derived ingredients but it may still have been tested on animals. This goes against the reason why people choose to go vegan in the first place, so it is wise to ensure vegan products also qualify as cruelty-free.

At Men’s Botanics we take pride in the fact that all our skincare products are both cruelty-free and suitable for use by vegans. We only use natural plant extracts and proteins which are proven to provide the nutrients needed to create healthy glowing skin. We also promise to never carry out testing on animals.

So now you can get fresh looking skin without going against your vegan principles. Check out our range of natural face scrubs, moisturisers and body wash gels here.
