Due to growing awareness around animal cruelty, vegan cosmetics has become a new trend. We all want to look our best whilst respecting the environment, and thankfully, there’s a number of companies that offer a sustainable solution. Rock Candy is one of these brands, offering a range of cruelty-free products so you can look and feel great.
All certified cruelty-free companies will ensure that none of their products have been tested on animals. Vegan cosmetics also do not contain any animal products such as shellac, glycerine (animal fat) and animal hair.
Rock Candy, amongst other vegan brands, is part of the Leaping Bunny program. This program provides an official certification that the company is cruelty-free and does not contain animal products. So you can browse Rock Candy’s luxurious collection and know that no animals have been harmed to make your favorite products.
Why is Veganism a Sustainable Trend?
We’ve all rocked a number of trends in the past: flared jeans, plaid shirts and neon eyeshadow amongst others. The difference with the vegan trend, however, is that it has a lasting effect that benefits the planet.
When we pick up shampoos and creams, we rarely look at ingredients. They must be safe, right? The truth in most cases is that they aren’t.
In fact, over 70% of cosmetics contains palm oil, which is harvested in countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia. Animals are forced out of their natural homes to make way for more palm trees. Companies are devastating our natural resources to feed an unsustainable demand.
Some major makeup brands are still testing on animals, despite the evidence that this doesn’t lead to better quality products. With new technology available, we do not need to safeguard our products by testing them on animals.
Most can be tested in labs on human skin cells and tissue, which provide more accurate results as to how they will affect us when we use them. In some cases, human volunteers can be used to trial products before they are sold. Sounds a lot better than testing on animals, right?
What’s more, is that plastic and synthetic materials have crept into cosmetics as a cheaper option to natural ingredients. While they aren’t inherently dangerous, applying chemicals and toxic material on the skin isn’t exactly good for us.
This is why Rock Candy is committed to providing fresh, exotic ingredients without any of the unnatural stuff. We don’t need to keep damaging the planet and its animal inhabitants when there are other options available. Switching to our ethical products means you can take a (literal) breath of fresh air.
Why Should I Choose Rock Candy?
By now, you must have realized that the current cosmetics market has no future. But we do. We can’t carry on using unsustainable methods to obtain ingredients.
There are many vegan brands available, but Rock Candy offers a natural, luxury finish. Being mindful of where your products come from doesn’t mean you are compromising quality. Rock Candy proves that the best ingredients come from utilizing nature, and not from devastating it.
