With society becoming increasingly more health conscious, consumers are looking beyond just vegan food products and wanting beauty options that aren’t just good for them but also the environment. Vegan skin care is becoming increasingly popular in the skincare market and for great reasons.
Vegan skincare is free of animal products and animal byproducts. Vegan skincare also does not utilize animal testing, making it cruelty-free. If you’ve been looking for the best vegan skincare products that are good for your skin, the environment, and ecosystem, keep reading.
Why choose vegan skin care?
A major reason to choose vegan skin products is to avoid supporting companies that harm animals and to avoid using animal products in your skincare. Vegan skin solutions can be enriched with vitamins, natural minerals, and botanicals that makes them highly effective to use on the skin. Non-vegan products can be harmful to those with sensitive skin and can cause irritation.
Using products with animal ingredients can also be harmful to the environment. Animal agriculture is one of the largest contributors to man-made greenhouse gas emissions and is also one of the main causes of water and air pollution.
DERMA E Vegan Clean Beauty Solutions
DERMA E specializes in 100% vegan, cruelty-free skin care. We create eco-ethical products that aren't limited to what’s inside our jars and bottles but extends to the packaging itself.
We take pride in using only the highest-quality ingredients in our vegan beauty products. We don’t use harmful substances such as parabens, petrolatum, sodium lauryl sulfates, mineral oil or artificial colors, and we ensure our formulas are free of soy, gluten, and GMOs. By using exceptional vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients, we strive to ensure you get a healthy-looking complexion.
We also strive to create a healthier planet through our products. We do that through the skin care we create, and we are proud of our formulations that emphasize natural ingredients. For instance, our sunscreens feature minerals such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, not the dangerous chemicals that have been found to damage coral reefs. We source the finest vitamins, botanicals and other ingredients, all of which we clearly state on our product labels.
Also, in products that contain fragrance, we use only natural ones, not chemical versions that can contaminate our water supply and the air we breathe as well as can be harmful to the skin. We only use necessary preservatives that have passed stringent standards for safety, and we use them in small percentages in our formulations so that they are not irritating to the skin. And, we never use animal byproducts or test on animals.
Our Vegan Beauty Product Packaging
Our packaging also reflects these same environmentally friendly standards. Many cosmetic and skin care products come packaged in plastic bottles, jars, tubes or compacts that value style over substance. They may look shiny and flashy, but once you get past the glitz and it’s time to throw the empty container away, you’re left with packaging that just sits in a landfill for years and years, causing long-lasting ecological damage to our planet.
At DERMA E, we take our passion for sustainability and invest in making packaging where the components are recyclable. The only exceptions to that are our facial wipes that are completely biodegradable and then our foil packs which are not biodegradable. With these efforts, we want to model responsible stewardship of our planet’s resources.
When it comes to crafting our products and their packaging, we also keep sustainability at the forefront. For more than 10 years, our manufacturing facility has used wind-generated power. By offsetting all of our conventional energy use with purchases of wind energy certificates, we reduce our environmental footprint while at the same time helping to offset carbon dioxide emissions.
Plus, by supporting a U.S.-based producer of wind power, we play our part in creating a strong marketplace for renewable energy, which also benefits the environment while supporting the American economy.
We want to make a positive difference as a company, not just by giving you healthier-looking skin and a healthier world, but also by supporting those organizations that exist to help others and do good in their communities, whether local or global in scale. DERMA E has supported a wide variety of initiatives, including Keep America Beautiful, World Wildlife Fund, Vitamin Angels, Heal the Bay, Project Paraguay and the Special Olympics: Ventura County.
When you use DERMA E vegan beauty products, you, too, are playing an active role in preserving our planet’s precious resources. Avoiding skin care products packaged in cheap, disposable bottles that use harmful chemical ingredients is good for everyone.
Our company’s roots are in a Southern California health food store, and our ethos and mission haven’t changed over the years. We are committed to our responsibility—to our customers and to our earth—to offer only the best products. These are what we call our “reasons to believe,” and once you try DERMA E skin care, you will become a believer, too.
The best weekly vegan skin care routine
The best vegan skin care routine starts with cleansing the skin. To thoroughly cleanse the skin, cleanse in an upward circular motion. You can use a cleansing brush, facial cleansing pads, wash cloth, or your clean hands. Apply your favorite DERMA E cleanser and remove any dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin.
Next, you want to exfoliate once every week or biweekly depending on your skin type. Our Microdermabrasion scrub formulated with dead sea salt and citrus oils works to remove surface dead skin cells while helping to maintain an even complexion.
After exfoliating, apply your favorite DERMA E face mask once a week or biweekly. Our plant-based ingredients and dermatologist recommended formulas work to purge pores of deeply rooted toxins, while the exfoliating properties remove any micropollutants.
Once your mask is thoroughly rinsed, it’s time to tone your skin with one of our highly effective toners. Toning helps to restore your acid mantle layer after cleansing as well as works to prepare the skin for serums and moisturizers.
Add your DERMA E serum once your toner has set in. Apply in an upward circular motion for optimal results. Once your serum has set into the skin, you can apply a complementing DERMA E Moisturizer to achieve essential skin hydration.
