WHAT IS CRUELTY-FREE SKINCARE?
Cruelty-free skincare ensures products are created compassionately, without the products or raw ingredients being tested on animals. Cruelty-free skincare products often lack harsh chemicals that dry out skin, or do more harm than good. Using cruelty-free skincare reduces the potential for irritation, less is more when it comes to ingredients. Cruelty-free skincare is NOT the same as vegan skincare, however, GoodJanes is vegan AND cruelty-free.
BE KIND TO THE PLANET AND YOUR SKIN
In recent years it has become more mainstream to discontinue testing on animals for skincare products. Without animal testing and added unnecessary ingredients, products are created compassionately and safely for human skin. Ingredients used in these products are also obtained without causing unnecessary impacts to the environment since they are typically natural, chemical-free and found not to emit toxins.
CRUELTY-FREE VS. VEGAN PRODUCTS
Cruelty-free skincare is defined as a product that was developed without animal testing on the product or ingredients, while vegan skincare means there are no animal-derived ingredients in the product itself. Vegan skincare forgoes animal-derived ingredients, meaning products are not produced from an animal or an animal byproduct. Traditional ingredients like beeswax, honey, collagen, lanolin and keratin are not used. GoodJanes skincare is proud to be 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
Some vegan and cruelty-free skincare products contain plant-based ingredients, GoodJanes is packed with them. Research has shown the nutrients in plant-based ingredients are good for your skin and offer a range of benefits. Since vegan skincare products typically contain fewer ingredients, it is simpler to understand what you are putting on skin. [more on GoodJanes ingredients]
