Not all shampoos are created equally. Here are some of the benefits of vegan shampoo that shed more light into why going vegan in your haircare routine can be a great option:
1. No nasties:
Vegan shampoo typically has less harsh ingredients and a more robust list of “free-froms”. For example, our Love Beauty and Planet shampoo collection is sulfate-free and free of manmade chemicals like parabens, silicones and phthalates that could further damage dyed or color-treated hair.
2. Naturally derived ingredients:
Vegan shampoo is more likely to use ingredients that are naturally derived, like essential oils and butter extracts. Love Beauty and Planet uses Coconut Oil, meaning we choose plant actives to work in harmony with our vegan certified ingredients in our products.
Vegan shampoo doesn’t use ingredients derived from animal byproducts. This includes ingredients like beeswax, lanolin, gelatin and keratin. This means that there are more plant-based ingredients in vegan shampoos, which is often better when treating and maintaining your natural hair.
4. Ethical practice:
Vegan shampoo is ethical and kind to the planet. Vegan shampoo is important because it ensures that no animals were harmed in producing the shampoo. Brands that choose to go vegan in their products also tend to choose more environmentally friendly alternatives in its packaging too.
5. Vegan shampoo promotes growth.
It’s not just about being green, but also being a great shampoo that increases hair follicles with essential oils, minerals and naturally derived ingredients.
