As Californians, really since the swinging 60s, being healthy, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, drinking smoothies, and buying products that are cruelty free has been big in our culture for decades! So, if you're a full vegan, vegetarian or just considering the benefits of taking the plunge into the all plant 🌱 based lifestyle, or maybe you’re just looking to be more environmentally conscious you’re probably getting ready to embrace the vegan skincare movement. Deciding not to eat meat is one thing, especially now with impossible burgers 🍔 being the new no meat food trend and there are so other many amazing foods to discover that are Vegan friendly, but this shift also means that many popular skincare products and ingredients that are manufactured in big factories and ingredients like carmine, and lanolin, although they can sometimes be sourced organically and sustainably, are no longer options.
Vegan skincare is all about clean pure beauty. We celebrate not using any ingredients that are chemical or produced by man in a factory. We celebrate natural ingredients. Straight from Mother Nature. No preservatives. No fillers. No sulphates. Zero nasties. And using glass zero waste jars that can be reused ♻️ again.
With all the misleading labels and claims out there, we thought it would be helpful to talk about our top 5 reasons why vegan skincare products are the best for healthy glowing skin.
1. Nutrient rich!
Because we use only plant based ingredients, fruit juices, flowers, herbs and flower waters, these ingredients are packed with potent vitamins and minerals the best that Mother Nature provides! Nothing compares to the dense nutrient rich goodness natural ingredients provide.
2. Zero chemicals, zero fillers, zero nasties
Because we don’t substitute our ingredients with chemically manufactured ingredients we let our 100% plant based nutrients do their magic. They’re not diluted down or processed in any way.
