What constitutes K-Beauty vegan skincare?
It's important to note that just because it's labelled cruelty-free doesn't mean it's vegan. When it comes to Korean beauty, it's usually both!
As of 2018, testing skincare and makeup on animals has been banned in Korea, so most brands, including AROMATICA, KLAIRS and I'M FROM, are 100% cruelty-free. While most makeup and skincare brands featured on our online store are cruelty-free, not every brand offers vegan skincare products, so always read the label!
When a soothing skin cream or serum is 'vegan', it means none of the ingredients listed originates from an animal, including animal by-products or animal-derived products. Instead, everything comes from plants. So if you're looking to opt-out of animal ingredients and go 'al natural' with your daily morning and night routine, vegan skincare is the way to go.
Vegan Cosmetics and Skincare: Why They're Better for You
Vegan cosmetics are actually better for your skin compared to those made with synthetic ingredients and animal by-products. So what difference does it make to go with all plant-based ingredients?
Vegan skincare products aren't just kinder to animals. They're often more forgiving to a variety of different skin types. Vegan products often feature fewer ingredients, which means fewer nasties irritating our complexion and a brighter, glowing complexion in the long run.
Eliminating animal products daily skincare routine means eliminating the synthetic ingredients proven to aggravate your skin, especially over sensitive skin or any other clinical skin condition. Meanwhile, plant extracts are a primary natural source of skincare goodies, including vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, essential to nourish, protect, and hydrate the skin. So it's worth doing some research to ensure you're only using non-toxic ingredients on your precious skin.
Since nature takes such good care of our skin, it's only fair that we give back too. The best vegan skin products are always 100% natural, meaning that they don't harm the environment after use and break down into non-harmful compounds and are reused in their new surroundings.
