Update your skincare regimen this summer with our top 10 vegan beauty products. Moving to vegan beauty products means less cruelty to animals and healthier products on your skin.
Shopping beauty products can be quite hard, but if you’re looking for cruelty-free skin care, then things can get tough easily! Luckily, the beauty industry is keeping up with the ever-growing demand for vegan beauty products.
What Are Vegan Beauty Products?
When a beauty product is vegan that means it does not contain animal-derived or any animal ingredients at all. This also includes beeswax, collagen, carmine, cholesterol, honey, lanolin, gelatin and others. The term vegan is not regulated, so some think that vegan also means that a product is not tested on animals, that’s not necessarily true, it’s just noting a product does not contain animal ingredients. You will have to check to brand if it’s also cruelty-free.
These are our top 10 vegan beauty products for your best summer skin!
