Is vegan skincare good for sensitive skin?
Aside from the fact that veganism has wonderful health benefits and works to protect the lives of animals, adopting a vegan lifestyle also has significant flow on benefits to our environment - reducing pollution, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and saving water.
Although adopting a vegan lifestyle has ample benefits, you definitely don’t need to be vegan to reap the benefits of plant-based natural skincare, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Due to an increase in harsh environmental aggressors like pollution, sun damage and the chemicals found in many mass produced products, skin sensitivity is on the rise. As a result, more and more people are suffering from sensitive skin and inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
The key to avoiding skin sensitivity is to avoid these aggressors - including irritating ingredients in the beauty and skincare products you use. The most common skin irritants are alcohol, fragrance, and mineral oil*. This is why many people with sensitive skin benefit from adopting a natural, plant-based or vegan skincare routine.
Many skin issues including acne, eczema, rosacea, dryness, and sensitive skin are also thought to be connected to a damaged skin barrier. The best way to protect your skin barrier is through hydration. This means drinking your two litres a day (*reaches for drink bottle*) and incorporating skincare products into your daily routine that are formulated to lock in hydration and moisturise the skin's surface to prevent water loss.
