Who wouldn’t choose a fragrance which not only makes them go gaga but also makes them feel the warmth of not harming animals in the process? This is why vegan perfume brands came into the picture.
In a world where a confident and independent woman like yourself tries to use safe and sustainable products. From wearing clothes that are eco-friendly to applying clean makeup. You wouldn’t want to end that ritual by slathering yourself in toxic fragrances, right?
Today, more than ever, more and more people are opting for vegan friendly perfumes. Originally, these were natural scents that were crushed and bottled. However, over time, the process has undergone a dramatic change. The environment and animal welfare are increasingly being considered when people make conscious, clean choices.
What Does Vegan Mean?
For a product to qualify as vegan, it must not contain any animal-derived ingredients and should not be tested on animals. Beeswax or honey are still common ingredients in many perfumes, which makes them vegetarian but not vegan. Musk, milk, ambergris, and civet are among the ingredients that vegan perfumes don’t contain.
It’s a relief to know that there are some brands out there that are pushing the boundaries of what fragrances can do. If it is so good, is it also hard to find? Maybe, but not for you. The following vegan scent brands should be on your radar.
