If you’re like most people, you probably made a few resolutions for the New Year. And if one of them was to go vegan for the month of January (a.k.a. Veganuary), then we’ve got some good (and bad) news for you.
Today, we’re talking about the benefits of veganism and exposing the items in your bathroom cabinet that may not align with your goals. So, grab a coconut latte, put your feet up and let’s take a look at veganism and the skincare industry.
What is Veganuary, and why should you try it?
Veganuary is an increasingly popular movement that encourages people to try going vegan for the month of January. The idea is to give yourself the opportunity to discover the benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle without having to fully commit to it long-term. It’s not only about healthy eating but also about reducing your consumption and impact on the environment.
While some people choose to just focus on their food intake during Veganuary, most use it as a chance to review their purchasing decisions across the board. After all, it’s a bit hypocritical to turn your back on sausages while wearing a new pair of suede shoes. And it’s not just the more obvious animal-related products to watch out for. You’d be shocked at how many animal byproducts make it into seemingly unrelated products, from crisps to beer and even your shaving cream.
Choosing vegan-friendly skincare products
Not all skincare products are created equal. For example, some moisturisers contain lanolin from sheep, while many shaving creams contain animal-based glycerin and stearic acid. Even fragrances aren’t safe, as many are tested on animals.
But it’s not all doom and gloom! As the demand for vegan-friendly products has increased, so have the available options. Look for the “vegan-friendly” logo, or simply take a quick look at the company’s website to learn about its ethics.
Shave guilt-free with Pure Shave
Shaving is a daily activity for many of us, and with Pure Shave’s range of vegan-friendly products, you can do it guilt-free throughout Veganuary (and beyond)! All of our products use high-quality ingredients, none of which are derived from animals.
Our shaving cream and moisturiser utilise plant-based ingredients, such as coconut and sweet almond oil. These oils don’t only nourish and hydrate your skin, but they also produce a smoother, closer shave. We also never test our products on animals, making our skincare products and fragrance 100% suitable for vegans.
And our products aren’t just vegan-friendly; they’re also free of harsh chemicals so that you can use them without fear of irritation or razor burn. Not only that, but our innovative refillable aluminium bottles help to reduce waste by using less packaging than traditional shaving cream.
With a commitment to quality ingredients and sustainability, Pure Shave offers customers an alternative to the high street brands – kinder to your skin and the planet.
