The latest studies of the cosmetic market show a clear trend for vegan cosmetics. What is the reason for this trend?
Vegan beauty products are produced without harm to animals (i.e. cruelty-free) and they also don’t contain any animal ingredients, animal by-products or animal-derived products. Common animal ingredients used in skincare include beeswax, lanolin or uric acid from cows.
The truth is, without animal ingredients, it is possible to develop high quality and effective products. the plant-derived ingredients in many vegan formulas contain enough vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to repair and hydrate the skin. These ingredients include vitamins A, C and E, natural oils, such as coconut, argan and rosehip, algae, soybean extracts, hemp seed extracts and so on. These ingredients are as, if not more effective, than their synthetic counterparts, since they are closer to their natural state and this is one of the main reason why this kind of comstics are growing and growing.
