If there’s anything spreading faster than hummus on our crackers, it has to be why vegan and cruelty-free beauty is better than any other kind there is.
Increasingly, skincare and makeup personal beauty consumers have been “making the switch” to vegan products replacing the non-vegan and non-cruelty-free alternatives in their vanities. #WorldVeganDay on November 1 was just a glimpse into how many “conscious” consumers are on the rise!
And why not? There are sooooo many benefits of vegan and cruelty-free beauty that are good not just for the environment or our fur babies but also for your skin.
If you haven’t made the switch yet or need a little bit of re-affirming in case you already have, you’ve landed at just the right place!
1. Less skin scare, more skin care
To replace animal-sourced ingredients that have been used for years and years before plant-based ingredients claimed supremacy, lots of exploration, search and innovation had to be put in. This is a sign your skincare or makeup has been studied and experimented with before it’s released as safe to use for you.
2. Your skin’s a nature-lover
When your mind can’t process the complex chemicals on the ingredient list, imagine what your skin is going to go through? Vegan and cruelty-free ingredients like plant-based oils and fragrances are your reason to break up with their counterparts. Naturally-derived ingredients could do wonders for your skin—they absorb more, react less.
Fun fact - Our multipurpose Play Stix are made with 5 plant-based super oils: Avocado, Argan, Marula, Almond and Jojoba that make them oh-so-blendable and creamy? Safe for use anywhere on the face and body too!
3. Veganise and save lives
When you #MakeTheSwitch, you contribute to saving 100,000-200,000 animals including rabbits, hamsters, marine life and beyond annually that are exploited by the beauty industry. NO KIDDING! Imagine receiving a “Thank you” in the form of a better world for our furry friends that you saved? THAT. FEEING. IS. SOMETHING. ELSE!
Did you know? Boss Lady Cosmetic was born vegan and cruelty-free! So everything you shop from us is a small effort to save furry lives. We recommend switching to vegan beauty brushes too!
4. You’re saving your skin too
By adding makeup and skincare with vegan and cruelty-free ingredients you’re actually doing your skin a favour. These ingredients often come with anti-ageing and other healing skin-benefits like treating dryness with natural moisture, protecting sensitive skin from itchiness and rashes among other goodness. Try it to believe it!
5. Captain Planet could be your middle name
Just like you’re contributing to reducing carbon footprint with vegan diet, you’re contributing to reducing beauty industry’s carbon footprint by rejecting non-vegan and non-cruelty-free products and pressurising brands to #MakeTheSwitch and ultimately work towards saving the environment too.
Like Boss Lady Cosmetic, vegan beauty brands are often conscious of their other impacts on the environment and hence, may come in biodegradable or recyclable packaging to cut out plastic waste.
Here go our top 5 but what’s your reason to adopt more conscious and #MakeTheSwitch? Let us know!
