Vegan Hyaluronic Acid Skincare
Hyaluronic acid is a natural acid found in our bodies that is used to heal and repair skin. It aids in cell proliferation and can hold one thousand times its weight in water. This property of hyaluronic acid makes it a common ingredient in skincare products. Most hyaluronic acids are extracted from animal byproducts to make the serums. Many people however opt for skincare products that do not contain this ingredient, and there are natural animal cruelty free alternatives for the vegan lifestyle, preference for animal cruelty free and not tested on animal products, that still include the benefits of hyaluronic acid
A good Hyaluronic Serum can be a game changer for your skincare routine, and you don’t have to give it up just because you want to follow a healthy vegan lifestyle. By researching the right natural solutions, you can experience the difference of adding this ingredient to your daily routine.
Hyaluronic Acid In Animal Byproducts
Hyaluronic acid is derived from synthetic, plant, and animal byproduct sources. It was first extracted from the combs and eyes of roosters, but has since been extracted from other animals. While this is not common practice, many companies use a variety of sources for hyaluronic acid and many do not advertise it on their packaging. It is important to always look for the vegan or cruelty-free labelling to avoid animal byproducts in your skincare.
Natural Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid can also be derived from plants and from bacterial strains that ferment and produce the acid. Aesthetic Life chooses HA sources that are vegan and cruelty-free. In addition to avoiding products tested on animals, there are several benefits to choosing vegan skincare products. They are more sustainable and often better for the skin than products derived from animal fats. In many cases, hyaluronic acid derived from fermented bacteria is also a more affordable option and you can receive a greater quality product for a comparable price to animal-derived products.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Serums
Because of hyaluronic’s water retention properties and natural skin healing ability, it can dramatically improve the texture, youthfulness, and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin.
