It is high time to voice that vegan beauty products are the future.
Vegan beauty products? Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden, explains vegan beauty as “products that are free of any animal byproducts or derivatives.”
Not only are they best for your skin but also cruelty-free goods are not harmful to the environment. Taking into account the critical state of our Mother Nature, it is highly egoistic not to care about the resources we exploit and how we exploit them.
Turning to vegan – or at least vegetarian – diet is great but not enough. To be truly participating in protecting of what is left in the natural world, it is important to mind our day-to-day habits. Today, let’s bring vegan skincare into the focus. Below, you will find five beauty brands that are 100 % vegan and cruelty-free that offer amazing products – worth trying whether you are vegan or not.

Ministerstwo Dobrego Mydła is all vegan and cruelty-free brand. Their products are based on organic and natural ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, unrefined cocoa and shea butter and virgin oils. Except for soaps, MDM offers aromatic bath bombs, rich body butters, oils and body scrubs. Thankfully, the company is shipping their fantastic products to (almost) whole Europe. We highly recommend trying their carrot soap (perfect for mature skin) and plum scrub (wonderfully smoothing formula!)
Arbonne promotes a healthy lifestyle in its all aspects claiming to be “on a green journey for 35 years.” Established in Switzerland, the company has never tested its products on animals. Instead, it invests in pure, botanically based ingredients. Arbonne develops products by combining the best of nature with leading science.

Pacifica is fighting the common misconceptions that all-natural products will not guarantee the same, desired results as their non-vegan, mass-market counterparts.
