Embracing Vegan Beauty: Ethical and Eco-Friendly Skincare Brands for Conscious Consumers

If we go back a decade, the beauty and skincare industries, in literal terms, were all about animal slaughter. For years, the skincare industry has used animal by-products, which are deemed harmful to both our skin and the planet. With the advent of veganism (thanks to millennials), many emerging brands have started making vegan skin care products with plant-based ingredients. If you are a conscious consumer and want to go vegan on your skin, read this article.

Imagine smearing gallons of animal carcasses onto your skin. Along with the whereabouts of its purity, the fact that an animal has to die for it to be drawn out is heartbreaking. It is difficult to find skincare products without animal by-products. As a matter of fact, you can even find one sitting on your bathroom shelf! To avoid this, go vegan on your skin, as they’re full of goodness and no animal brutality!

Imagine if I had declared the idea of going vegan 10 years ago and received a thousand pairs of confused, questioning stares. Over the years, along with being health-conscious, we’ve become aware of the harm that the cosmetic and skincare industries are inflicting upon the environment.

If you ask me, is going vegan worth it (and also dumping my malignant faux leather jacket)? Well, if you care for your health and the earth at the same time (which should be necessary), it is. It definitely is! A faithful vegan lifestyle can promote an ethical approach to your diet as well as your lifestyle.

Throughout the years, the vegan revolution has crawled down from diet, clothes, and now skin. Vegan skin care products are plant-based and don’t use ingredients from animals or animal by-products like meat, tallow, dairy, eggs, beeswax, honey, and many others.

Men, it’s time to take a stance and switch to a better skincare brand that would hate to harm these innocent beings.

If you want to switch to a vegan skincare routine, here are some skincare brands promoting veganism:
