Before we get into the good stuff, let’s talk about vegan beauty products. So, what are they? Vegan products are essentially products that contain no derivatives from animals or living creatures.
Sometimes some natural and organic products can contain animal derivatives, so if you want to go all out with your vegan products look for products containing ingredients such as: beeswax, lanolin (grease from sheep’s wool), and carmine (a natural red color extracted from crushed cochineal insects).
Doesn’t sound appealing yet? (well we don’t blame you, the crushed insects threw us off too). But stay with us, as we have three reasons why you should go vegan with your products:
The saying goes, “the less ingredients found in a product, the healthier it is”. Simple everyday ingredients like soy or green tea provide anti-aging benefits and vitamins.
Dry skin treatment
Argan oil, Moroccan oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and the list goes on and on. These are all natural oils that help reduce eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin.
Protection against the sun
The cardinal rule for any ingredients found in a product is that the closer it is to its natural state, the healthier it is for our body. For example, an extract from grapes (resveratrol) contains antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from UV damage.
Now you’re thinking, where can I get my vegan products in Malaysia? Well, you’re not the only one here actually as one of the biggest issues users who want to try out vegan products is the limited choices as well as availability they face. Thankfully, vegan beauty brands have grown considerably in the past decade.
