4 Great Reasons to Use Cruelty Free Makeup
Recently, there has been a surge in cruelty free makeup sales. We all want to look our best, and we all deserve to feel our best, so it is little wonder why the beauty and cosmetics industry is currently thriving.
With vegan makeup brands currently expanding and sales doing better than ever, even those that don’t adhere to vegan lifestyles have found themselves being drawn to the world of cruelty free cosmetics.
But just what is it about vegan cosmetics that beauty enthusiasts and everyday men and women alike have fallen in love with? Well, let’s take a look, shall we?
Here’s a look at 4 great reasons to use cruelty free makeup.
Cruelty Free Makeup Ideal for any skin type
One of the first reasons to purchase cruelty free makeup is due to the fact that it is ideal for any skin type.
Lab-made cosmetics often contain harsh chemicals and ingredients which are not suitable for all skin types.
That’s why people with sensitive skin often experience adverse reactions when using certain brands of cosmetics.
Vegan cosmetics are made with natural ingredients that help to moisturize, soften, and cleanse the skin, without putting it at risk or causing an adverse reaction.
That means that, regardless of your skin type, if you use vegan beauty products you are virtually guaranteed to benefit and not need to worry about damaging your skin.
So much to choose from
Okay, realistically speaking, a couple of decades ago you’d struggle to find much variety in terms of vegan cosmetics, other than the absolute basics.
Nowadays, though, things have changed enormously. These days there is an enormous market for cruelty free makeup and as a result, you will be spoilt for choice when topping up your dressing table.
With vegan lipstick, cruelty free lip gloss, eye shadow, eyeliner, foundation, blusher, powder brushes, eye serum, and a whole lot more besides, choosing your ideal vegan makeup selection is now easier than ever.
Simply browse some of the many vegan supermarkets now in operation as you’ll be like a kid in vegan candy store.
They’re cruelty free
As you can probably tell from the name, cruelty free cosmetics are true, well, cruelty free.
This means that they have NOT been tested on animals or any other living beings, and they contain NO animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients.
Furthermore, they have been created ethically, so no human exploitation has taken place either.
Most non-vegan cosmetics either contain animal ingredients including animal fat, fish scales, gelatin, and other disgusting ingredients and/or they have been tested on animals to check whether or not they’re safe.
Vegan cosmetics, though, have none of that so when you buy them you can rest assured that you have made the right choice and have done your part to make the world that little bit kinder.
No adverse reactions
Some cosmetics can cause adverse/allergic reactions in users.
Certain products may leave the skin itchy or flaky, or, could result in your own immune system attacking itself.
Cruelty free cosmetics, though, are made from natural ingredients which means that there is an incredibly low chance of an adverse/allergic reaction taking place.
