Vegan cosmetic products are usually better for your skin, but you need to understand why every brand is designed differently, and some companies use the word vegan loosely. When you buy Berla Beauty vegan makeup, you are buying something that was not tested on animals, because when we say vegan, we mean it. Cruelty free and ethically made in small batches is our standard.
Vegan products that you use for skincare and make up can be used every day just like other cosmetics. Even better, vegan products by Berla Beauty are much easier to use because they have natural products that do not irritate your skin. When you are using vegan makeup every day, you can wash it off easily. Our products contain NO pesticides and are made with hypoallergenic ingredients. The vegan products you buy will come off when you wash your face, and you will avoid issues with your skin in the morning due to our calming formulas. Many ladies have redness or swelling on their face even after washing the night before. You avoid that because everything comes off when you wash vegan and natural cosmetics.
Our vegan products do not have the chemicals that irritate your skin. Plus, you do not smell the chemical odors that will make the makeup unpleasant, because we simply only deal with non-toxic ingredients! It is simple for you to use vegan cosmetics every day because you are not offended by the smell. This is a good way to avoid problems with your makeup, and you cannot have an offensive odor on your skin. This is especially important when you are using skincare products all over your body.
Our skin absorbs up to 60% of the products we apply to it – it’s a scary thought if those products are synthetic, processed and full of preservatives, chemicals and toxins. If you’re going to clean up your diet for the same reasons, why not make your beauty cabinet healthier too? Vegan cosmetics are much better for your skin, and they will not cause irritation or swelling that other cosmetic products you use. You could even use these products when you want to live the vegan lifestyle. You can use these products on your kids if needed, and you can wash them off easily. Plus, there are no animal products that cause natural reactions! You can get products that are not tested on animals, and you are doing something good for the planet. At Berla Beauty we plan each product around ethically sourced vegan products, for you and for the planet.
Common animal ingredients used in skincare include beeswax, lanolin (which is the grease from sheep’s wool – it’s hard to un-think that thought!), carmine (a red colour from crushed cochineal insects) and uric acid from cows. Vegan formulas are sometimes given a hard time – are they as effective as non-vegan products? Are they more expensive? Do they have as long a shelf life? Berla Beauty cosmetics are tested to be effective, sustainable, ethical and of course, vegan. The truth is, without animal ingredients, vegan products are actually better for your skin, especially if you’re someone with sensitive or condition-prone skin. Animal ingredients can be harsh and clog pores, so we made our vegan products a soothing alternative.
What’s more, the plant-derived ingredients in our vegan formulas contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to repair and hydrate the skin. You feel far healthier if you eat foods in their natural state – and the same logic applies to skincare. Your skin will thrive off being fed natural, vegan ingredients. These ingredients include vitamins A, C and E, natural oils, such as coconut, argan and rosehip, algae, soybean extracts, hemp seed extracts, Camu Camu berry and so on. These ingredients are as, if not more effective, than their synthetic counterparts, since they are closer to their natural state. The terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are our favorite words, aside from vegan. Berla Beauty is paraben free, and gluten free just to top off all the goodness we offer.
Additionally, when products are absorbed by the skin, they go straight into the bloodstream. (When you ingest something, it goes through the kidneys and liver before the bloodstream – a natural filtration and detoxification process). Over time, the absorption of non-vegan ingredients can potentially cause negative side effects, and not just to your skin. Say goodbye to sensitive skin issues with Berla Beauty, say hello to helping the planet along with helping your skin.
