Why use vegan products?
In comparison to commercial skincare products, which contain harsh, artificial chemical ingredients, vegan products are natural, organic — made with the environment in mind — and gentle on the skin. Additionally, organic skincare often works better for people with common chronic conditions, such as acne. Vegan ingredients also provide the best anti-aging skincare results, as they’re chock-full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts that help rejuvenate the
skin and give it a healthy glow. – Lily Kew, founder of Kew Organics
