Vegan or Animal cruelty free?

In general, a lot of the products we use may be considered, animal cruelty-free and not vegan. That being said, The main difference between the two is easy to understand. Firstly, Vegan Skincare rejects all ingredients sourced from Animals. Whereas animal-cruelty free allows few animal-derived ingredients with the exception of being taken ethically. 

! It’s also safe to point, that some ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid can be sourced from non-animals (I.e Synthetically) making it Vegan.

Here are some Popular Skincare Ingredients that are NOT vegan:

  • Snail Mucin
  • Beeswax
  • Honey
  • Propolis
  • Squalene
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Stearic Acid
  • Caprylic Acid
  • Collagen
  • Lanolin
  • Keratin
bestkbeauty.com

Benefits of vegan skincare products?

Most of us understand that Vegan Skincare helps protect animals, but What other benefits can we get by switching to Vegan Skincare?

  • Better for the skin

To start, one of the most important benefits is that ultimately Vegan Skincare is better for our skin. Not only are we less likely to be exposed to potentially irritating additives but, there are a ton of nutrients and goodies to be found in Nature.

  • Better for the Planet

Secondly, Vegan skincare does a lot less damage to the environment. Unlike Ingredients found in Vegan Skincare, Animal-derived Ingredients take a lot more time to be processed. And, more processing means more harmful greenhouse gasses. In fact, animal agriculture is the main cause of deforestation and pollution, so cutting back wherever you can (Whether it be food or skincare) is essential. 

Vegan Korean Skincare Certifications?
