The number of people choosing to follow a vegan diet is steadily on the rise in the United States, with about 3% of Americans adhering to a vegan eating plan. But in addition to veganism in their food choices, an increasing number of people are choosing to live a completely vegan lifestyle. That is, they seek out products that have no animal products or byproducts. This includes vegan skincare products.
At Fountain of Youth Skincare, we are committed to supporting a vegan lifestyle. All of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Not only is it obvious that this is better for animals, we know that it is better for your skin, too.
Why You Should Make the Switch to Vegan Skincare
As veganism rises and gains traction in all consumer markets, here are five reasons to choose vegan skincare lines for your beauty products.
1. They are better for sensitive and condition-prone skin.
If you have skin that tends to break out or react to products, then you are likely to find relief with all natural vegan skincare choices. Animal products tend to irritate sensitive skin, exacerbating any issues you make have and making it difficult for your skin to heal. From acne to sun damage, vegan products can help promote healing and restoration.
Fountain of Youth’s vegan organic Green Tea Moisturizer provides just such healing for your damaged or sensitive skin. With nut butters, shea butter, and soothing green tea, this product will make your skin feel amazingly soft and silky. And it does all of that with cruelty-free vegan ingredients that won’t irritate your skin.
2. They protect your whole body.
Your body absorbs about 60% of what you apply to your skin. Unlike ingredients you ingest, which your body filters through the kidneys and liver before allowing them into your blood, products absorbed through your skin go directly into the bloodstream.
Many people have sensitivities to animal products, and this absorption can lead to inflammatory responses in the body. Aside from any topical irritation that may occur, your whole body can suffer systemic problems as well. Switching to vegan skincare lines will avoid these troublesome and even dangerous reactions.
3. They are better for the earth.
Vegan skincare companies generally seek to provide a sustainable Earth-friendly product. From the ingredients to the packaging, these lines aim to create as little impact as possible on the Earth.
At Fountain of Youth, our small batch vegan skincare line is organic and all natural. We use locally sourced farm-grown ingredients whenever possible. And we only partner with like-minded retailers to sell our products. No giant chain stores for us! All of our items are made in the USA, and we support our local economy and ecology in our processes.
4. They are affordable.
It used to be that vegan beauty products were only for the wealthy. They were so expensive that it put them financially out of reach for many consumers. That reality is changing.
Research shows that those with incomes under $30,000 per year are the most likely to want to live a vegan lifestyle, and now many great products fit any budget.
As consumers demand vegan skincare lines at an increasing rate, makers are finding it more cost-effective to produce them. Now it truly is affordable to support ethical, vegan choices in your skincare regimen.
With samples of many of our products starting at just $2.00, FOY makes it extra affordable to try our high-quality vegan items. From cleansers to toners to masques and more, we have you covered, safely and naturally.
5. They are kind to animals. Obviously.
This should go without saying, but vegan products are kind to critters. Big or small, animals remain safe when you choose to shop vegan for your skincare needs. Fountain of Youth’s 100% vegan products are organic and all natural. They contain no animal products or byproducts.
The commitment to veganism is one of our guiding tenets at FOY, and we know you will appreciate it too. It allows you to shop with confidence for safe, healthy, conscientious products for your skin. When it comes to your skin’s health and beauty, there is no need to compromise your ethics and morals. Vegan skincare is rising for a reason. And we are confident that it’s here to stay.
