Vegan skincare are products formulated without animal or animal-derived products. This means that natural ingredients such as bee venom, beeswax and honey aren’t added to the product. Instead, other plant-based ingredients are used. Think of aloe vera or centella asiatica which are fabulous moisturising agents.
Vegan skincare history
Vegan focused products have gained traction in the korean cosmetics industry as the increased focus on animal rights has impacted the market. Many Korean skincare brands such as Klairs, The Vegan Glow and Pyunkang Yul have turned to fully vegan skincare product lines. Korea was the second Asian country to ban animal testing in 2018. The law stipulates that cosmetics manufacturers should not include animals or ingredients tested on animals in their products. The only exception is if the country the product is exported to requires animal testing. This is not the case for any countries in the EU.
Vegan Korean skincare
Vegan skincare products aren’t just for vegans, they are for anyone who is seeking a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to skincare. Many Koreans adopted the vegan diet, shortly after, the Korean skincare industry followed and manufacturers started to use plant derived products only. The Korean skincare industry's main goal is to replace “fast-food” products (quick acting and aggressive for the skin) that are being sold around the world with long term natural, healthy and sustainable products. This is why they are investing their time and money in research and development of Vegan skincare product lines.
