If you aren't sure what vegan skincare is, you aren't alone! Vegan is a term you usually hear when talking about diet. As we have become more focused on living a clean lifestyle & are more aware of ingredients in the products we use, veganism has become more popular. Veganism is defined by the Vegan Society as; " a philosophy & way of living which seeks to exclude-as far as is possible & practicable-all forms of exploitation of, & cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose; & is by extension, promotes the development & use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, & the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly(meat) or partly(dairy/eggs) from animals."
So what does this mean in terms of skincare products? It means that a product that is truly vegan will not contain any ingredient from or derived from an animal, & they will not test their products on animals. When you use a skincare product that is vegan, you are getting a fully natural product packed full of great ingredients that come straight from nature & are full of essential nutrients.
The benefits of using vegan skincare are that they are; full of nourishing ingredients, protect your skin from environmental pollutants, & are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. Another benefit of vegan skincare products are that the ingredients are taken from plants which contain more vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, & natural oils which all help in repairing & maintaining healthy skin.
Bay Harbor Beauty products are all cruelty-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, paraben-free, formaldehyde-free, & free from artificial colors. Although all of our products are not vegan, we do have enough of a vegan selection to meet your needs.
