If you’re anything like us, January signals not only a perfectly clean slate and promise of a new year but the chance to make resolutions and do better.
Whether you’re doing Veganuary because it’s better for the planet or are just a big believer in animal welfare, veganism isn’t just reserved for what’s on your plate – your beauty bag can get in on the action, too.
K-beauty has come a long way – no longer shrouded in 10-step mystery or formulated with alien-sounding ingredients, countless beauty brands that have cleaned up their act and now exclusively offer high-performance, vegan skincare.
‘There’s been a real shift towards plant-powered formulas and effective, natural ingredients in K-beauty,’ says TONIC15 founder Jin. ‘Extracts like Mugwort and Centella Asiatica have been relied upon for decades to heal, soothe and improve skin in traditional medicine and you’ll find them at the heart of many of the vegan formulas stocked at TONIC15.’
‘There are several reasons why you might want to explore vegan skincare,’ adds Jin. ‘As Korean vegan skincare tends to be formulated with all-natural ingredients, they might make a better option for sensitive skin that finds itself irritated by synthetic ingredients.’
‘Similarly, veganism continues to grow in popularity every year because society is increasingly aware of their personal impact on he earth and believe that that cruelty-free products are generally better for the planet,’ adds Jin.
So, whatever your reason for incorporating more vegan products into your regime, we’re here to hold your hand on your cruelty-free journey. From Cica to Chaga, we’ll shine a spotlight on the powerhouse, plant-based ingredients that are worth putting on your radar this Veganuary and then will serve up some of the best single ingredient products to try out if you haven’t yet..
