If you’re a newbie to vegan skin care, then you’re in for a (dairy-free) treat, because vegan beauty is going mainstream. Keep reading to find out what the buzzy movement means for you and your skin, and where we (sk.in) fit in.
the ick factor
A lot of what you put on your skin (up to 60% to be more accurate) is absorbed into your bloodstream. That’s a scary thought when you consider that common animal ingredients found in beauty products include sheep organs, whale vomit, and cow urine. Yum! After a while, the absorption of non-vegan ingredients can have negative side effects. The vegan beauty movement is pushing consumers to check out the ingredients list, and that’s empowering.
it’s cool to be kind
Not only are vegan beauty products free from animal ingredients, but they’re also usually cruelty-free by default. So no animals are harmed in the making of these products. Plus, you’ll feel good about your impact on the environment. Clear conscience = clear skin.
Worried about cost? Vegan beauty is on the rise, so it’s now much easier to find affordable options which are also vegan and cruelty-free. Not only easy on your wallet, but easy on your skin.
linked to good (sk.in) health
We know what you’re thinking: are vegan formulas as effective as non-vegan products? The good news is, yes. Vegan skin care has come a long way. In fact, don’t be surprised if your skin reacts positively to the switch. Research points to a helpful role of plant-based diets in managing some health conditions. Well, the same goes for your skin. Especially if you’re someone with sensitive skin or prone to skin conditions.
so where does sk.in fit into the vegan beauty movement?
At sk.in, we take our vegan status seriously. We’re proud to be recognised by the Vegan Society. Look out for the Vegan Trademark—the authentic standard for products free from animal ingredients and animal testing—on all our serums. When you see the sunflower symbol it means the product is vegan certified and cruelty free.
committed to conscious skincare products
sk.in is proof that all-vegan ingredients can make a powerful difference. Our promise to you is that each sk.in product is free of all nasties, but packed full of potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid that are 100% vegan and never tested on animals. Because the future is vegan, and we are here for it.
