The Rise Of Vegan Beauty Products
It’s no surprise to say that veganism is fast becoming one of the biggest (if not the biggest) lifestyle changes. As we’re typing this, we’re wondering “why didn’t it happen sooner?” but it’s better late than never… 🙂
Many articles have been written surrounding veganism and vegan lifestyles, with many of them being negative, however in 2018, we saw a big rise in people transitioning to a vegan lifestyle.
In this article, we won’t be focusing too much on vegans and vegan lifestyles but what we will say is that together – a difference is being made for the world we live in.
Last year was one of the biggest years for vegans in the UK and it’s estimated that there are over three and a half million people who are vegan in the UK with a prediction being made that we’ll see over 700% growth over the next two years – proving that veganism isn’t just a trend.
Thanks to the power of social media, we’re all able to do our own research and this has allowed many of us to uncover the truth about the beauty industry.
Some of the leading beauty brands on the market not only use harsh chemicals in products which are used by millions of people daily, there’s also the major factor of animal testing which is sadly still ongoing around the world.
Did you know that there are certain animal fats which are used in the development of eyeshadows?
Did you know that crushed beetles can be used in red lipsticks for the colouring?
Take a step back and think – is this really necessary? I think for most of us, the answer is “no”.
Here at Vegan Beauty Brands, we’re not here to judge. We understand that many people will have simply not thought about the process or paid attention to the products out there on the market and you know what – that’s OK!
If you’re reading this – now is the time to think about your body and the products you’re using.
Is it time for a change?
Are Vegan Beauty Products More Expensive?
Yes and No.
Really, this all depends on the quality of the ingredients which are being used and whilst you may be able to pick up some great vegan beauty products on the high-street, we recommend taking a look at the ingredients being used and the blend of formulations to ensure you’re getting the very best quality.
For example, here at Vegan Beauty Brands, we avoid Palm Oil – at all costs!
Despite the publicity surrounding the ingredient in the Christmas Iceland Advert, some of the biggest brands still use it, especially in their lipsticks as it holds on to the colour well but when you hear about the destruction caused from retrieving Palm Oil and how harmful it is…. we’ll give it a miss, thanks!
