Ve­gan

Simply You Living - - Beauty -

Ve­gan is syn­ony­mous with the terms plant-based and nat­u­ral, with an­i­mal wel­fare be­ing para­mount. A prod­uct that is ve­gan should not con­tain any an­i­mal or an­i­mal-de­rived in­gre­di­ents such as honey, beeswax, lano­lin, col­la­gen, al­bu­men, carmine, choles­terol or gelatin. Strictly speak­ing, a ‘ve­gan’ prod­uct should also be free from an­i­mal test­ing, but be­cause the term is not reg­u­lated, it’s of­ten used sim­ply to state that it doesn’t con­tain an­i­mal in­gre­di­ents.

Pure­ol­ogy Clean Vol­ume Sham­poo, $41 and Con­di­tioner, $44: The 100 per cent ve­gan for­mula in this range is in­fused with nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents to help boost vol­ume. Aloe water helps hair re­tain mois­ture, pro­vides body and ab­sorbs oil, while soy pro­tein for­ti­fies the hair, adding lus­tre and pro­tect­ing against en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors.

Ethique Pep­per­mint & Teatree

Foot Balm Bar, $20: All Ethique prod­ucts are free from nas­ties such as palm oil, parabens, an­i­mal prod­ucts, pe­tro­leum by-prod­ucts and in­gre­di­ents that form ni­trosamines or diox­ins. They also have no fillers, con­tain no plas­tic and are 100 per cent cru­elty free and ve­gan.
