Vegan Skincare Demystified

Vegan Skincare Demystified

These days society is demanding more and more honesty about what goes into (food) and onto (cosmetics and skincare) their bodies.

One of the products of this movement is vegan skincare. What does it entail? Similar to food in vegan diets, vegan skincare products contain no animal ingredients and are not tested on animals. Animal products are common ingredients in skincare. Some of them include:  

  • Honey
  • Silk
  • Beeswax
  • Lanolin
  • Keratin
  • Elastin
  • Collagen

 

You might be confused if your vegan skincare products contain some of these ingredients. Don't panic. There are ways to produce them synthetically while remaining vegan.

But why is vegan skincare so popular? Not only are vegan skincare products kinder to animals, but they're also gentler on the skin. It's important to those who use vegan hair and skincare products that the ingredients are pure, such as plant-based ingredients, natural minerals, and vitamins rather than harsh chemicals and animal products that irritate the skin. 

Unfortunately, certain unscrupulous vegan skincare product brands test their products on animals. We've got some good news, though! All of our Sole Toscana products are vegan and cruelty-free. Rest assured that our serum moisturizerand ALL of other products are made with certified organic, plant-based materials that are soothing and nourishing to your skin and 100% Vegan!

 

With love,
