The Importance of Cruelty-Free Skincare
At VOESH, one of our core values is providing cruelty-free spa & skincare products to our customers. This means that we never test on animals or use animal-derived ingredients in any of our product formulas. Our formulas are all vegan and are made with all-natural and organic ingredients! 100% of these formulas are tested and assessed by independent laboratories in Europe to ensure they’re safe and beneficial to use. Our team is devoted to providing vegan, cruelty-free skincare because of the endless benefits to animals, the planet, and your skin. Let’s dive into each of these to learn more.
Every year, approximately 500,000 animals die globally due to cosmetics testing. Animal testing is unnecessary and inhumane, as there are many alternative methods to test cosmetics, like recruiting human volunteers, computer-modeling techniques, and in vitro testing, which utilizes human cells and tissues for testing.
Animals can’t advocate for themselves, which is why we’re so passionate about advocating for them. We love our furry friends, and we want to do everything we can to protect them, especially knowing how many animals suffer due to inhumane testing. You are helping to save and protect animals every time you opt for a cruelty-free brand.
Better for the Planet
Skincare brands that are cruelty-free are more likely to use more natural and organic ingredients that are better for the environment. Our formulas are non-toxic and ethically sourced, and we are devoted to using green chemistry practices in our production. Green chemistry is the science of designing formulas with plant-derived, pure ingredients, instead of with potentially harmful substances. These cruelty-free practices are proven to lower deforestation, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce environmental waste.
Because cruelty-free products like ours don’t contain toxic chemicals, you can ensure they won’t cause any harm rinsing down the drain! Chemical-free ingredients also don’t release toxins into the air, which helps support good air quality.
Great for your Skin
We value transparency, so rest assured that VOESH products are made only with vegan and clean ingredients that are healthy and safe to use on your skin.
Cruelty-free product formulas tend to contain less harmful chemicals, like sulfates and parabens, making them safer to use on your skin. These harsh chemicals can clog pores and dry out skin, especially if you have sensitive skin or any pre-existing conditions. At VOESH, we have a list of banned ingredients you will never see in our formulas:
• No Phthalates
• No Animal-derived ingredients
• No Parabens
• No Mineral Oil
• No PEGs
• No Triclosan
• No Benzophenone
• No Formaldehyde
• No Propylene Glycol
We are always dedicated to using all-natural ingredients to provide the best clean skincare to you! Plus, each product on our website includes a full list of ingredients under the “What’s Inside” section. Take a look at our Shower & Empower Duo as an example.
Thankfully, over 1,000 beauty and cosmetics companies are now certified as “cruelty-free.” Even with many cruelty-free makeup and skincare brands out there, more can still be done. Many animal rights organizations around the world are fighting to end animal testing, and 41 countries now have bans in place on cosmetics animal testing.
When you support cruelty-free skincare brands, they are able to grow and provide more products and resources that don’t harm animals. Make a difference today by supporting those who are dedicated to making a difference!
