As more people become aware of the influence of pesticides and synthetic ingredients in our environment and health, more women are interested in using vegan skin care products. With increasing demand for vegan skin care products are widely available which may be free of chemical, fully organic, or even vegan.
It is estimated that, during typical skin care, skin, hair, and women's nails come into contact with more than 100 chemicals, many of them are dangerous for health. In one’s life, the average woman will swallow around four lipstick pounds, and lipstick can contains many toxic or carcinogenic substances. Therefore, vegetarian skin care products are more popular today, because awareness will increase.
There are also vegan perfumes, moisturizers and skin care. Vegan and organic cosmetics are free of synthetic dyes and color can be obtained through plants and minerals. They usually have shorter storage life than conventional cosmetics, and must be replaced frequently. Vegan cosmetics are available as foundations, lipstick, eyeliners, and other beautifying products.
Many vegan cosmetics use animal products such as bee and lanolin candles, and vegans, those who avoid fully animal products, must find cosmetics using vegetable oil such as oil palm and shea. Many consumers vegan beauty products enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy along with cleaning and conditioning of their skin and hair.
Aromatherapy is an art of influencing a sense of welfare of a person through the use of essential oils from flowers and spices. Some mixes stimulate while others relax. Many vegan skin care products are available in sets that include bath gels, soap, shampoo and conditioner, scrubs and cologne. Orange, bergamot and cedar have stimulating and refreshing skin effects.
