Veganism is a way of life that excludes all consumption and exploitation of animals in all aspects of daily life. It is not just a matter of not consuming animal products such as meat, fish, honey and milk among others. But it also means rejecting all forms ofanimal exploitation such as fur and leather production or entertainment such as in circuses and zoos.
Even today, veganism has taken a big step forward by proposing more and more vegan cosmetic products that do not contain any animal products and are not tested on animals. This is a more animal-friendly approach that also allows you to have a beauty makeover, so why not discover it?
Vegan Beauty: the principle
A new trend in the world of beauty is currently vegan cosmetics. A desire to make oneself beautiful and maintain one's well-being in a more natural and ethical way. That's right! The entire Vegan cosmetic range, from make-up, nail polish and shampoo to toothpaste, does not contain any ingredients or materials of animal origin.
In short, vegan cosmetics exclude all milk, honey, animal collagen, keratin, guanine, carmine and any other product of animal origin.
But to be labelled Vegan, products must not have been tested on animals during the entire manufacturing process, from ingredients to finishing.
Benefits of switching to vegan cosmetics
Opting to use this type of cosmetics means becoming more eco-friendly and environmentally friendly, and in particular to ensure the protection of animals.
Becoming a fan of vegan cosmetics would therefore be first and foremost a matter of sorting out one's beauty and well-being products, most of which contain ingredients that are not very respectful of the skin and theenvironment, as is the case with parabens and silicones.
Studies have shown that these ingredients cause endocrine disruption. The best choice would therefore be to exchange them for vegan products, more natural care products whose benefits are no longer in question.
Becoming a vegan is also about adopting vegan beauty routines, such as make-up removal, which you can do easily with water and washable microfibre make-up remover wipes. For deep skin hydration, a mixture of cocoa butter and organic baobab oil is perfect.
Some reference labels for vegan cosmetics
To recognize a vegan product, you must first learn to read the labels to know what is vegan or not in the ingredients. However, the easiest way to do this is to buy products from a brand that is labelled vegan.
