Veganuary: Discover the Fun of Plant-Based Beauty
Let’s start 2024 off right, with Veganuary! Over the years, vegan skincare has become more and more popular - and for good reason! In this article, we will be speaking about the rise of plant-based beauty and how you can get involved this Veganuary.
The Rise of Plant-Based Beauty
To see January out, let’s talk about the rise of plant-based beauty and how it’s been taking over the makeup and skincare industry. Plant-based products emerged as a response to ethical concerns about how the beauty industry was run. This movement gained massive momentum in the late 20th century, leading to a shift in perceptions toward animal testing and animal-derived ingredients. Since then, vegan beauty has really taken the spotlight, and many consumers opt for cruelty-free alternatives.
The Hemsley Organics Cruelty-Free Message
Here at Hemsley Organics, we understand the new vegan beauty products. We are committed to creating organic, natural ingredients and have a clear dedication to cruelty-free practices - we embody the essence of Veganuary all year round. Our range of products have been designed to provide a harmonious blend of quality, Reiki-blessed skincare and ethics, inviting everyone to indulge in self-care without compromising on their important values.
The Benefits of Plant-Based Beauty
There are many, many benefits to choosing plant-based beauty products. Firstly, vegan skincare tends to use all natural ingredients which are highly beneficial to your complexion. For example, in our Smooth & Hydrate Cream Cleanser, we include a range of beneficial ingredients that all come from the planet - take coconut oil, one of our primary ingredients. Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and will also work to dissolve dirt, sebum and any other impurities that you may have on your skin. It also naturally includes vitamin C and can brighten your complexion from the first use.
As mentioned above, here at Hemsley Organics, we also prioritise cruelty-free practices. As well as opting for all natural, and vegan ingredients, plant-based skincare should also be about how those products are made. We ethically-source all our ingredients and understand the origin of what goes into our skincare range.
Not only that, but our outer packaging is also 100% recyclable and biodegradable. The electricity utilised in their production originates directly from British wind farms, courtesy of Orsted renewable energy. Our packaging is exceptionally sustainable, employing a water-based coating and vegetable-based inks.
