How to go from Non-Vegan to Vegan Skincare?

Switching from non-vegan to vegan skincare? Here's a beginner's guide:


1. Start Slow 

Don't feel like you need to overhaul your entire skincare routine all at once. Instead, take it step by step. Begin by replacing one or two of your staple products (daily moisturizer or face wash) with vegan alternatives. This will allow you to get used to the new formulas and see how your skin responds before making more significant changes.


2. Research Vegan Brands

Not all vegan skincare brands are created equal. For instance, Muldream caters to youngsters living in urban cities while 7 Journeys caters to those with sensitive skin. Take the time to research different companies, read reviews, and understand their ingredient lists and production methods. Look for brands that are transparent about their vegan and cruelty-free certifications, as well as those that use high-quality, plant-based ingredients.


3. Pay Attention to Ingredient Lists

When transitioning to vegan skincare, it's important to carefully check the ingredient lists of the products you're considering. Avoid products that contain animal-derived ingredients like beeswax, lanolin, or collagen. Instead, look for vegan alternatives such as plant-based waxes, vegetable glycerin, and plant-based oils.


4. Introduce Products Gradually

When you do start introducing new vegan products, do so gradually. Sudden changes in your skincare routine can sometimes cause skin irritation or breakouts, especially if your skin is sensitive. Introduce one new product at a time, and give your skin a few weeks to adjust before adding another.


5. Seek Advice from Experts

If you're unsure about which vegan products to try or how to best transition your routine, don't hesitate to seek advice from skincare experts or dermatologists. They can provide personalized recommendations based on your skin type and concerns, helping you make the switch to vegan skincare seamlessly. Struggling to see what skincare works for you?

Transitioning to vegan skincare may take some time and experimentation, but don't get discouraged. It's important to be patient and persistent, as your skin may need time to adapt to the new formulations. Trust the process, and you'll be rewarded with healthier, more radiant skin.



Remember, the journey to vegan skincare is a personal one, and what works for someone else may not necessarily work for you. By following these tips and being attentive to your skin's needs, you can make a successful and rewarding transition to a more ethical and sustainable skincare routine.
