A Makeup That Also Makes You Beautiful on The Inside

Being a vegan can be hard, as finding vegan products used in everyday life, such as soap, toothpaste, makeup etc. can be a real challenge. Women, whether they are vegans, vegetarians or have conventional eating habits, like to wear makeup every day. However, it is to not easy to find products that do not use animal-based ingredients! Even though some companies avoid using animal-based ingredients in their products, opting for mineral makeup and natural organic cosmetics, they test their products on animals, which is cruel and against vegan philosophy. Most of the time, customers are not aware of these experiments and it is difficult to find out if a specific organic product came into contact with animals at any stage of its production or distribution. Thus, it is important to make sure the product is 100% vegan and in order to do that, we can consult the website of the nonprofit vegan.org, an organization that certifies vegan products.

A vegan woman who wears vegan makeup will definitely not only be beautiful on the outside but also on the inside. As a vegan, I feel committed to share any information that I have in order to help women make the right choices when it comes to their beauty products. Hence, I have listed three links below where vegans can buy vegan makeup:

http://www.urbandecay.com/vegan.cfm: This is pretty much the best of all websites I could find as the products do not contain any ingredients of animal origin. In addition, ​​the packaging is made of recycled material and the printing ink used is made from soy beans.

http://www.tartecosmetics.com/tarte-shop-vegan-cosmetics: This one is also very good and very complete; it offers all of the products a woman needs in a makeup bag.

http://www.ebay.comand http://www.mercadolibre.com: In some countries, vegan makeup is not common at all which makes it almost impossible to find it. But people can buy it through websites such as Ebay or Mercadolibre where vendors ship their products to customers all over the world.

It is important to remember that even natural organic cosmetics and mineral makeup need to be consumed sparingly. A high global consumption will increase shipping which leads to higher emissions of carbon dioxide, as long as fossil fuels are the main source of energy in use. Besides, the excessive use of certain ingredients leads to the depletion of natural resources and thus the destruction of the environment which endangers many species and their habitats.

    I am definitely going to check out these websites because actually, consumers don't have any idea whatsoever about the ingredients contained in conventional makeup. I bet these products are better for your skin too.

    "wow this is great, I loved your content. A lot of vegan newbies do not know about all those things and what is being hidden by companies regarding the ingredients of products. So it`s very important to talk about it. Very well done!"

    Just a note: Some of Urban Decay's products DO contain animal products. Their eye shadows and lipsticks in the red and purple hues contain carmine - crushed beetles. Their website does state the use of carmine, but many unaware consumers may not realize what it is. Check out my article for details http://www.theflamingvegan.com/view-post/Carmine-The-Hidden-Ingredient

    Nice article, however, you have forgotten Arbonne International which has been making holistic, vegan skincare and cosmetics since 1976. Swiss formulated but made right here in the USA (Irvine, CA). Why don't you do a review of their products and what they stand for? Great company and great products! Check them out! www.arbonne.com Thanks! HK
