While many people trip over semantics and technicalities, the world of cosmetics is evolving. Many brands are embracing fully vegan and cruelty-free principles.
Mopani Pharmacy is proud to be authorised stockists of quite a few vegan and/ or cruelty free beauty product ranges!
Pureology is a haircare range with shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling aids. They pride themselves on their environment-friendly business practices, as the company takes extraordinary measure to minimise secondary packaging and water use during the manufacturing process. Their products are paraben and mineral oil-free, as well as 100% vegan. None of the products are tested on animals. This high-quality haircare brand boasts sulphate free shampoos and high concentration formulas with leak-proof caps to ensure that your hair retains its colour and moisture, for longer.
Catrice is a cosmetic brand that offers everything from make-up to nail polish and gels. Although not all of their products are fully vegan, none of them are tested on animals. To make sure about which is which, look for labelling on the packaging that would indicate that the product is vegan or cruelty free.
African Extracts Rooibos
This 100% vegan and cruelty free range is one of our favourites. It has skincare products that include face washes, scrubs, lotions, creams, soaps, body butter, oils and more. The ingredients are mostly plant based – and all of them contain Rooibos, one of South Africa’s favourite plants to be used not only for our famous tea, but also in many cosmetic products, due to its powerful antioxidants.
Inoar Vegan Range
This is a haircare brand that is 100% vegan, and cruelty free. They offer shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products for all different hair types as well as sulphate and paraben free options. Inoar is on PETA’s “Caring Company” list, and ensures that their brand is not only sustainable to the environment but actively empowers the communities of women who inspired the range and adheres to social responsibility, during their manufacturing process.
More than 70% of Essence make up and nail products are vegan already and they are hoping to increase this number, going forward. Again, you can find out which products are vegan friendly by looking at labelled packaging, and be rest assured that the line is cruelty free.
Collagen is a beauty ingredient one should not forget to include into your regimen. It is literally part of everything in your body, and basically acts as the glue that keeps everything together. Most collagen supplements are made from animal sources, but Harvest Table has a vegan pea and rice protein powder supplement available. This Vegan Protein Powder contains the same quantity of Glycine and Proline (amino acids needed for natural collagen production) as a normal animal-based collagen. It also has the Bamboo Silica mineral added to boost collagen production and to act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body.
Disclaimer: This is not a collagen supplement but rather a collagen production boost.
