Falling under the responsible makeup movement, vegan products acknowledge that today’s beauty devotees are more conscious than ever – and we’re not just talking about the effect creams, powders and everything in-between have on their skin. These consumers are concerned about the impact the product has on the world as a whole, too.
In the same way these women would avoid wearing real fur, leather and animal hide, and avoid consuming meat, milk and other animal derivatives, they want to use makeup that is considered friendly to animals.
Vegan cosmetics have been specifically formulated then to be free of any animal-derived ingredients. So, no beeswax, honey, lanolin (which comes from sheep), egg derivatives, other animal fats and acids, or even dead insect extracts, all of which may stem from the exploitation of living creatures. Synthetic and/or plant-derived ingredients are used in their place.
A commitment to greater awareness and responsible decision-making admittedly doesn’t make life easy. Fortunately, you don’t have to agonise over vegan-friendly choices at the makeup counter. Not anymore.
There are an ever-growing number of vegan makeup options available. One of the most notable is Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow, that enables you to get your glitter on with seven easy-blending and long-lasting shades. One of the major concerns people have about vegan products is that they don’t work as well as traditional makeup formulations. However, Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow proves you don’t have to sacrifice efficacy and pigment punch by going vegan. It lets you sparkle and feel more beautiful, inside and out.
Urban Decay and other makeup brands now have entire vegan-friendly ranges and identify these products as such. Look for the labelling, and you can more easily live according to the principles of Compassionate Beauty.
