What is Vegan Makeup? What does makeup that is vegan mean? A vegan is someone who chooses not to use animal foods, dairy, eggs or anything that comes from an animal. So when the makeup is created, there is nothing that comes from an animal. This cruelty-free, chemical-free makeup is perfect for anyone, but especially for those with sensitive skin, skin irritations, rosacea, or allergies.
Vegan makeup also means that the makeup will be really good for your skin. Many times ingredients can harm not only the skin, but your health, because the skin absorbs everything. This means that anything that you apply, like foundation, mineral powder, bronzing powder or moisturizer, is absorbed into the skin. If a product like mineral powder contains an irritant, like bismuth oxychloride, it will not only irritate the skin, but cause acne and breakouts.
Also, you should know that there are many words like natural or pure makeup that sound like they are good for you. Some products may be okay, while others are not. Educating you on ingredients and why certain products are better is part of our belief in helping you not only have great skin, but look fabulous. From our own vegan makeup line, Bella Reina Cosmetics, to other cosmetic lines, we want to make sure that you apply only the most healthy, highest quality products. As a result of making sure that products are good for the skin, vegan makeup is not only animal-free, but also free from harmful toxins that are commonly used in other makeup.
Vegan friendly makeup is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, paraben-free, talc-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, dye-free, gluten-free and does not contain bismuth oxycholoride. Other ingredients missing from vegan makeup include mineral oils, phthalates, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate. On all of our products you will note that we have a legend which will let you know that the product is Vegan, Kosher, Cruelty-Free, Gluten-Free, Natural, or Mineral.
