Earth Day rolls around on April 22nd, and we’re getting the celebration started early with our vegan and cruelty-free collection. As technology continues to advance and the demand for unique, sustainable products grows, we here at Beauty Supply 123 have invested in our planet by investing in vegan and cruelty-free solutions. There’s no better feeling than taking care of yourself while taking care of our planet!
Why should I choose vegan hair care?
The benefits of vegan hair care speak for themselves. Made from natural, certified organic ingredients and processed in sustainability-focused creator spaces, vegan hair products focus on treating the planet as well as you treat your hair.
It’s well-known that harmful chemical ingredients like sulfates can be damaging to our hair, skin, and scalps. On the other hand, vegan and cruelty-free hair care products rely on all-natural ingredients like organic oils and vitamins to nourish our hair and scalps.
What does “cruelty-free” mean?
Another benefit of vegan hair care products is that they don’t use any animal products like milk or animal fats. “Cruelty-free” also means that these products aren’t tested on animals: but how does this practice impact the planet?
Animal testing causes the suffering and death of many animals around the world. You might not consider a shampoo brand to be harmful to animals, but the reason many companies know products are safe for people’s skin is because they test the products on animals like mice, rats, or monkeys first. And unfortunately, organizations that do not use humane practices in animal testing can often contribute to these animals’ pain and suffering. Yeah, that’s pretty awful, right? And it should have nothing to do with our hair care.
In terms of sustainability, cruelty-free products also often contain less synthetic materials, like chemical mixes that could release toxic fumes or runoff into the air, soil, and waterways around a production facility. All in all, vegan and cruelty-free products are not just good for YOU, but good for the world around you.
Alrighty, I’m convinced — how do I get started?
