Why Do Beauty Influencers Opt for Vegan Makeup and Skincare

Embracing veganism does not only mean cutting out animal-based food products; it also means being aware of the clothes you wear, the drinks you drink, and the beauty and makeup products you use daily. What does makeup have to do with going vegan, you may ask? Well, all the vegan and organic cosmetic products have been made from chemical-free ingredients, the method of processing is way cleaner and thus, more environmentally friendly, as it doesn’t affect the nature or the animal world around us. So, because they are green and eco-friendly, more and more celebrities, such as Drew Barrymore, Julia Roberts, Jessica Alba and others, choose vegan and organic makeup. Let’s take a look at the advantages of using such skincare and beauty products.

Avoiding animal-tested products

It’s a well-known fact that many of the leading beauty companies test all their products on animals. Most of the
time people care but fail to do anything about it, thus helping those specific companies grow and become even
bigger. Vegan and organic beauty companies, like Kora Organics, are 100% cruelty-free, as these products are
tested on human volunteers. Going with natural feminine hygiene products that are not tested on animals,
makeup and skincare products, you stand against animal exploitation that’s very much present in the beauty
industry. The animals are usually locked up, poisoned, or even killed, yet they should not endure all of that
things to make someone’s face pretty.

Avoiding animal-based ingredients

Take a look at the ingredient list of the cream you have next to you. If you look closely and do a bit of research,
you will probably see that all of the cosmetic products contain animal-based ingredients. These products can
include beeswax, dead insect extracts and uric acid of cows, horses and other animals. Since all of these
ingredients can be easily replaced with other, plant-based ingredients, you should make an effort to turn to
cruelty-free beauty products. Vegan and organic beauty and skincare products do not contain ingredients that
are in any way harmful for the animals.

Making your skin healthier and younger

The fact that vegan and organic skincare is better for your skin is not such a well-known fact. These products
contain fewer artificial chemicals and fewer ingredients in general, which helps your skin look more natural and
fresh. Many of the chemical ingredients used in the regular beauty products are nothing but fillers, and since
they harm the environment, they can harm your skin as well. Choosing the latter ones will only make your skin
used to the artificial ingredients, and once you stop using them, you will see how much your skin deteriorated.
Choosing vegan powder, natural vegan or organic eyeshadow or facial cream, even going for a high-quality
vegan toothpaste will not only save you money (since they tend to be cheaper) but also help your body in the
long run.Also, there are many homemade recipes for great skincare products. Not only that you’ll have most of
the ingredients in your kitchen, but you’ll also know exactly what you put on your skin.

Thinking about the packaging

Beauty veganism

It is not only about excluding animal-based products and ingredients from your makeup and skincare arsenal.
It’s about going green all the way, and because of that, the packaging is also very important. Organic and vegan
products and accessories come with sustainable, eco-friendly packaging made from recycled materials. So,
if you decide to go with this kind of beauty products, be sure that you won’t be only helping animals, but also
the environment we’re trying so hard to save.

See? This is why many beauty vloggers, such as Kristen Leanne and Teri Miyahira, choose the vegan type of
makeup. So, if you think you can’t contour yourself without the regular beauty products, you’re wrong.
Take a look at their tutorials and you will see that not only is it better for the environment, but it’s also cheaper.
