Which animal ingredients can be found in cosmetics and makeup?
There are quite a few of them. Ingredients that are clearly derived from animals are, for example, lanolin, honey and beeswax, and, less obviously, retinol, collagen, elastin, keratin and hyaluronic acid. All these additives can thus be derived from animals.
What are alternatives to animal ingredients?
Vegan cosmetics and makeup represent a growing trend. A vegan absolutely does not have to settle for ‘lesser’ products, because perfectly sufficient alternatives can be found for the above ingredients. Collagen in natural products, for example, can be replaced with vegetable oils. In natural cosmetics, hyaluronic acid is often extracted from the myrrh tree, yielding vegetable hyaluronic acid. An alternative to retinol is, for example, carotene from carrots.
Why go for vegan cosmetics and makeup?
Choosing a (partly) vegan assortment in your concept is a particularly clever move in today’s society. You show your consumer that you are responsible, that you care about the world in which we live. By including vegan cosmetics in your range, you will naturally reach an even larger group of consumers.
