Just as a vegan diet means no consumption of animal products, vegan skincare products contain no animal products or derivatives.
Many people aren’t aware of the extent of inclusion of animal products in cosmetics and skincare, but there are hundreds of potential beauty ingredients derived from animals - such as beeswax and collagen. Some of these are complete no-nos for vegan cosmetics and skincare, but some can be produced in vegan-friendly ways.
Collagen, for example, is traditionally sourced from cows and fish. However, recent research has discovered that it can be created using modified yeast and bacteria, making this version of it vegan.
All of our products at Florena have vegan formulas, and all contain no animal or animal derived ingredients. We are proud to be vegan and make sure we produce our skincare in a responsible and sustainable way.
