We live in a world where most products are processed and artificial. Many beauty products are tested on animals and contain ingredients derived from animals. There is good news for animal lovers, though! There are many labels that are cruelty free and, best of all, vegan! You can now look good and feel great about the beauty products you’re using.
Lush Cosmetics is a beauty brand with a main focus on organic and vegetarian products. Some of their products are vegan, such as the skin tints and lipsticks. Not vegan, but cruelty-free, are only a few of their foundations. The most common ingredients found in vegan Lush products are Organic Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil, Cupuaçu Butter, and Rose Petal Infusion. Jojoba Oil is a natural antibacterial and is very moisturising, but it can irritate the skin. Many times, to reverse the irritating effects, Jojoba Oil is diluted with Almond Oil. Almond Oil is hypoallergenic and very mild on the skin. Almond Oil contains Vitamin E and acts as a natural SPF; It protects your skin from the sun’s damaging rays while healing already damaged skin. Cupuaçu Butter is the vegan equivalent to Lanolin. It smooths the skin and improves elasticity. Both Cupuaçu Butter and Rose Petal Infusion promote moisture retention. Most, but not all, of Lush Cosmetics’ products contain these ingredients which help your skin look healthy and beautiful. Though not all of their beauty products are vegan, most of them are. They are, however, all cruelty-free.
The All Natural Face
The All Natural Face is another vegan beauty brand. This line of cosmetics uses only pure and vegan ingredients. As stated on their website, they do not use talc, carmine, or dyes in their makeup products. Although they create mineral products more than anything, they do also offer cream foundation compacts, pressed powder, and an assortment of eyeshadow/eyeliner crayons. As well as makeup, they have an array of brushes and sponge applicators. All of their vegan brushes have bamboo handles and synthetic bristles. The All Natural Face is also a cruelty-free beauty brand. They only test on humans; Not on animals.
