Veganism And Vegan Cosmetics

What is veganism?

The term “vegetarian” was coined in 1944 by a small group of vegetarians who broke away from the Leicester Botanic Society in England to form the Vegan Society.

Like vegetarians, in addition to remembering meat, they choose not to consume dairy, eggs, or other products of animal origin.

The term “vegan” was chosen by combining the first and last letters of “vegetarian.”

Veganism is currently defined as a way of life that excludes the exploitation and cruelty of all kinds of animals, whether for food, clothing or any other purpose.

Why is it important?

By choosing only plant-based products, you will get rid of harmful chemicals and harsh cosmetics and reduce your chances of developing skin problems like rashes, allergies, eczema, acne, dermatitis and other skin diseases.

Vegan beauty products are never tested on animals and are therefore completely cruel. The animals used in the experiments are not only kept in small cages and subjected to inhumane conditions, but they are also rigorously tested.

Vegan products are free from beeswax, collagen, gelatin, honey, carmine, cholesterol and other animal derived ingredients.

The Humane Society International estimates that 100,000-200,000 animals suffer and die annually from cosmetic tests. In these tests, animals have chemicals in their throat, in their eyes, and on their shaved skin to document their reaction to ensure safe human use. These tests determine whether these products cause common diseases or health risks, such as cancer or birth defects.

Carmine is a red pigment often used in lipstick, blush, eye shadow, and other cosmetics. It is also widely used in food and drink, especially bright red items (think ruby ​​juice and curry at the supermarket!). It is made from the red dye of an infected female cochineal bug.

Glucosamine – This skin care ingredient is believed to prevent, tone, and help skin tone. It is found in the exoskeleton of many animals, but chicken bone marrow appears to be an excellent source of glucosamine for the cosmetic sector.

Ambergris is also known as whale vomit. This gray, floating, fecal-smelling mass is a secretion of a sperm whale. Oh my God, it really sold it, right? Some perfume manufacturers still use it to “fix” the smell of perfume.

Placenta Protein – This protein really says it all, right? The placenta of the animal is extracted from the uterus of animals in abattoirs and appears to be widely used in skin care products. It appears to be used as a moisturizer, which means that it is used to draw moisture to the upper layers of the skin.

 

They also perform lethal dose tests, in which animals are forced to swallow a large amount of the chemicals to see what dose can cause the death. These tests can cause severe pain, malaise, blindness, eye swelling, skin ulcers and bleeding, internal bleeding, organ damage, birth defects, convulsions and even death of the animal.

Choosing vegan products is also a good excuse to think more about what we buy and take a more liberal and simple approach. By purchasing only the items we need, we are more likely to reduce waste, make our little one more mindful and waste our resources less.

We work on the concept of vegan and cruelty free our products are neither made from animal by products nor are tested on animals as we have a strict policy again animal cruelty.

Serein as a brand is 100% vegan as it doesn’t not use any animal by product.
