Healthy, glowing skin undeniably plays a vital role in our self-esteem. Skincare is important, but doing it consciously can be more rewarding —to ensure that you're not hurting any animals as you indulge in your skincare regimen.
Why Vegan Skincare Is Good?
It uses only plant-derived ingredients and makes sure that no animals are harm during the product's production. How good is that?
PETA defines Vegan as the refusal to use products made with animal ingredients. Along with this, you might have also encountered Cruelty-Free the label—stating no animal testing was done for their ingredients or finished products.
More consumers are starting to get conscious and involved making sure no harm is involved to any living creatures and wholly to the environment. In recent years, consumer activism has played a vital role in moving cosmetic companies to provide vegan and cruelty-free options to their consumers. There has been an increased in demand for vegan cosmetics since 2013, and the trend is set for the long-term.
If you've been wanting to switch to a friendly alternative for your skincare, but don't know where to begin, fret not. The 9-Neko Editorial is here to help you find the best Australia-made vegan skincare products you can check to help you with your switch.
