Going vegan is a lifestyle choice that only some people can successfully go through with ease. It might be tough being vegan at first, but it certainly has its benefits to your health. However, people almost automatically associate it with food when in truth, it covers everything else including make-up.

Make-up has been cruelty-free for a long time and now some brands take it a step further by producing vegan cosmetic products for the specific demographic. You are probably wondering “how is vegan make-up… vegan?” Well, allow us to break it down for you to understand more about vegan cosmetics.

1.    100% animal-free

As the name applies, vegan make-up is 100% animal-free. Nothing at all that involves these innocent earthly creatures are used for your own personal cosmetic routine. It might come as a shock to you that some products use dead animal by-products like extracts from insects on your make-up. But when it comes to vegan cosmetics, there will not be any animals used even in the slightest sense.

 

2.    Uses only natural ingredients

Instead, everything is done naturally with floral ingredients to preserve our wildlife and save our planets. Not only that, it is effective towards sensitive skin as it does not contain doubtful and harmful chemicals which are often found on non-vegan cosmetic products. Truth be told, strictly using natural ingredients brings a positive change to both the environment and your skin.

 

3.    Contains more vitamins

Make-up products that contain animal ingredients are known to be harsh on skin as it causes irritation and can easily clog your pores. Vegan make-up on the other hand enhances your skin to bring you that glow that you always wanted. This is because the plant-derived ingredients contain more antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins than non-vegan cosmetic products which will nourish and protect your skin. Vitamins A, C, and E are the usual suspects, natural oils and seed extracts are found in vegan products too.
