Why Choose Vegan Skin Care Products

October 2015

Quality, purity and safety of ingredients are critical components to the effectiveness of skincare products for different skin types.

Naturally, vegan skin care products are the best skin care choice with the purest ingredients that provide longer-lasting results.

Here are a few key benefits of cruelty free and vegan skin care products:

  • Better for sensitive skin and good for all skin types

Cruelty free and vegan skin care products do not use animal testing and generally contain natural and organic ingredients that are gentle on the skin, instead of harsh artificial chemical ingredients that are usually found in commercial skin care products.

For brands that use animal derived ingredients, quality control and source purity can be very hard to establish and many potential health risks can arise. For example, brands that use animal derived ingredients need to check all supply data in order to confirm non-BSE exposed sources of animal derived collagen used in many popular skincare brands — doing this is not always possible as often sources are combined or change based upon availability.

  • Effective anti-aging benefits

Clean and natural vegan skin care ingredients can provide the best anti-aging skin care results. A combination of all-natural antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and botanical extracts can help rejuvenate the skin and give you a healthy glow!

Why Vegan Skin Care & Why Trufora?

100% Vegan skincare

Safe, effective, non-irritating, clean ingredients and pure formulations are the real difference between Trufora and other brands.

By using only vegan ingredients, Trufora is able to guarantee the absolute purity and safety of all of our ingredients and formulations. Your skin, and your conscience, will thank you for it!

Sara Sweeney, CEO and Founder of Truth Aesthetics explains why it's important to make Trufora products 100% vegan & cruelty free:

"It doesn't mean you need to follow a Vegan lifestyle to have this be important to you, it really is understanding what it means to only use products that use pure, effective, safe ingredients — and to be both environmentally and socially conscious. Why would we choose to use products with animal derived ingredients (risking the purity and leading to animal testing, which we should all be against in cosmetics as there is NO reason for it and NO law requiring it in the U.S) when ultimately there is no benefit vs all-vegan ingredients.

The fact that Trufora is Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free is something that I am very proud of and is extremely important to me on a personal level. People in the U.S generally have no idea that the majority of the major companies that make most of the household and personal care products that we use, test those products on animals. There are NO laws requiring these tests. It's a matter of money — it's cheaper and easier to conduct animal testing than it is to test products on human volunteers. All of the Trufora safety testing was done on human volunteers.

Proudly Cruelty-free skincare

What people also have no idea of, is that it isn't only small rodents and rabbits that are tested on — over 65,000 dogs are in the U.S are used for testing. Dogs. As in man's best friend. The majority of these dogs are Beagles and larger hounds. That is where it gets REALLY personal for me. I have three rescue hounds as family pets. They are the sweetest, gentlest, most loving dogs that exist. And their total lack of aggression is the reason that Beagles and hounds are used for testing — they won't attack people no matter what horrific things are done to them. That really breaks my heart, that we could betray these gentle souls like this. It's also why Trufora has sponsored the Beagle Freedom Project's Cruelty Cutter App — BFP is doing an unbelievable job at educating Americans about animal testing and saving as many Beagles and hounds (and other animals) from a horrific life of being tortured.

Know that every time you buy Trufora, and any other product that proudly displays the Leaping Bunny symbol you are supporting cruelty free brands and helping end the animal testing industry — if people stop buying products tested on animals, there will be no reason for animal testing labs to exist."
