I’m not Vegan, what does it matter if my products are?

Some of us might not think much of it, especially if we are not vegan or vegetarian ourselves. But here is why Vegan products are so important to keep in mind the next time your reach out for that cream/soap/product at your local store.

We are all familiar with our colorful recycling bins, the blue and the green…but how many of us are familiar with the red recycling bins? not as many as should be. Here is what you need to know:

“The majority of tissue processed comes from slaughterhouses, but also includes restaurant grease and butcher shop trimmings, expired meat from grocery stores, the carcasses of euthanized and dead animals from animal shelters, zoos and veterinarians. This material can include the fatty tissue, bones, and offal, as well as entire carcasses of animals condemned at slaughterhouses, and those that have died on farms, in transit, etc. The most common animal sources are beef, pork, sheep, and poultry. 

Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Rendering can refer to any processing of animal products into more useful materials, or more narrowly to the rendering of whole animal fatty tissue into purified fats like lard or tallow. Rendering can be carried out on an industrial, farm, or kitchen scale.”

What does Animal Rendering have to do with your daily consumables? Because the Red Bin content is then boiled until a white foam forms, that foam is collected and sold off to Cosmetic companies in an attempt to reduce recycling costs. So to put it simply – When we apply our creams/ soaps/ cosmetics on, what we are also applying is recycled rendered animals directly on our skin, on a daily basis without being aware of the consequences.

As I mentioned in my last post, one significant phrase that I feel so important to share is: “What you put on your skin, goes into your body, through every major organ, ten times more than anything you put in your mouth”. So we just got to ask one thing: If something is too dangerous for me to eat….how can it be sold back to me for use on my skin?

This is where the importance of Vegan products comes into the picture. When buying products, it is so important to learn about the ingredients on the back and understand what has been put in and what we will be putting on. It goes without saying to also look for the “Animal Cruelty Free” / “Not Tested on Animals” symbol.

“What’s In It For Me?”

Getting under the surface of your daily products

.

What do we really put on when using every day consumables such as face wash, toner, moisturizer, shampoo, soap ect.? Do you know the answers? if you’re not sure, remember this and stay tuned to this blog section:

.

What we put on our skin, absorbs through every major organ in our body ten times more than what we put in our stomach.”

Working as an international Makeup Artist for the past six years, my clients always ask me;  “Which product would you suggest for my skin?”  “Which product is good?”  and the answers, of course, vary as the people who ask. But- a few basics remain the same- we all deserve product safety and benefits without harmful consequences.

.

After attending some very inspiration expert lectures, I’ve decided to dedicated a blog section specifically for the subject of skin care and consumable product knowledge. I’ll also be regularly hosting FREE get-togethers for those who are interested to know more (including cosmetics) and also explore amazing work opportunities in my Health & Wellness business.
