The Biggest Benefits of Vegan Skincare

Have you ever shopped for facial cleansers or body wash and seen a sunflower symbol on a bottle or tube? It’s a small mark, but a significant one that shows your commitment to a sustainable, green future—it’s the mark of a vegan product. Read on to discover the benefits of vegan skincare.

What Is Involved in Vegan Skincare?

Most people assume that all skincare products are vegan, but that’s simply untrue. From face washes to lotions, serums to masks, animal products are in almost every skincare product we buy. Vegan products are created without animal-derived ingredients, to keep the skin clean without harming living things.

Why Vegan Skin Products Are a Better Choice

At Lemon & Beaker, we know that vegan skincare isn’t just good for the planet—it’s good for us, too. Our products offer a range of benefits that leave you feeling clean, refreshed, and confident in your choices.

  • They protect animals. While vegan skincare benefits animals, we take things a little further. Our products are vegan and cruelty-free, so you can buy them knowing you’re creating a better world for animals.
  • They’re better for your skin. Lemon & Beaker products are kind to the planet, but they’re great for your skin, too. Most of the things we put on our skin—including lotions, creams, and cleansers—are absorbed into our bodies, which makes good choices more important than ever. Our vegan alternatives contain fewer ingredients that tend to irritate sensitive skin.
  • These products are full of antioxidants and vitamins. Another advantage of vegan skincare products is that plant-derived ingredients contain beneficial compounds. Minerals, vitamins, natural oils, and antioxidants repair and soften skin, keeping it feeling and looking fresh.
  • They protect the environment. The best vegan skincare products are organic and natural, which means they break down into inert components that are harmlessly absorbed by the land and water.

When you buy our products, you’re not just helping your skin—you’re helping make the world a better place.

Buying Vegan Skincare Products: What to Look for and What to Avoid

Most skincare ingredients come from plants or animals. Because animal-derived components need less processing, they’re a popular choice among skincare companies. When shopping, avoid ingredients like cetyl alcohol, biotin, gelatin, and keratin, all of which come from animals. With natural, effective alternatives like Irish moss and agar from seaweed, there’s no reason to buy animal-derived skincare products.

What’s the Difference Between Vegan and Cruelty-Free Skincare?

While many products are vegan, they’re not necessarily cruelty-free—which means they’ve undergone animal testing. We admit that ‘100% vegan’ labeling can be misleading, and that’s why we’ve gone through the additional step of having all our products certified by PETA. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, and we hope your skin will be as clean as our reputation.

The Future of Vegan Skincare Looks Bright

If you’d asked for vegan products 20 years ago, you may have been met with surprise or even derision—but that’s thankfully no longer the case. The benefits of a plant-based lifestyle are becoming more evident by the day, shaping the future of skincare. As we become more health-conscious and socially aware in our purchase decisions, we can help to shape a vegan, cruelty-free world. Browse our product selection online or find a retailer near you.
