Everyone is talking about vegan cosmetics and skincare. What is it? Is it important? Is it important for redheads specifically? A cosmetic or skincare item can be classified as vegan if it does not contain any animal-derived ingredients or animal byproducts. But, there is so much more to it and we’re here to break it all down.
Vegan beauty = no testing on animals
Yes, if a product is marked “vegan”, it means animal testing was not done. Sadly, lab animals are kept in tiny cages and beauty companies test their products on the animals. The animals live in fear and usually euthanized after testing has been completed. Not only is animal testing cruel, but it’s also outdated, senseless and extremely sad. One of the most rewarding benefits of switching to vegan beauty products is having the ability to save hundreds of animals’ lives. If everyone switched to cruelty-free products, millions (or even billions) of animals could be spared each year.
Does vegan beauty mean “cruelty-free”?
Many people get “vegan” and “cruelty-free” mixed up when it comes to talking about cosmetics, and while most vegan products are also cruelty-free, they technically don’t have to be. A vegan product contains no animal ingredients, a cruelty-free product isn’t tested on animals.
Vegan beauty = cleaner ingredients
Besides having environmental benefits, using vegan products can also be better for your skin and body. Vegan products are often much cleaner and have fewer harmful ingredients than non-vegan products. For redheads with sensitive skin, this can be the key to finding something that will be safe for your skin.
