What are the benefits of Vegan products?
Well, conventional hair products contain animal-sourced Keratin, Biotin, or Silk Amino Acids, all of which come from animals which makes them not Vegan. Similarly traditional nail polishes use three main chemicals; Toluene, Formaldehyde and Phthalates, all of which are known to be harmful with long term use.
Thus, using Vegan products means you’ll both being helping animals by using these Vegan/Cruelty-Free ranges and you’ll be kinder to your skin with the naturally sourced ingredients. There’s plenty of reasons to give Vegan products a go, and below are a couple brand’s thoughts on their Vegan products…

The founder of ORLY, Jeff Pink, has always had the ethos that nail polish should never be harmful, never tested on animals and to be free from the 12-nasties, including formaldehyde, so making sure they only make Vegan nail polish was important to their company. Thus they refuse to use animal derived ingredients in their polishes, and keep their products stylish while keeping away from harmful chemicals!
At Schwarzkopf Professional, they wanted to make sure their new Bonacure Clean Performance products were as healthy for the environment as for your client’s hair, so they created Vegan Keratin, a vegetable alternative to the classical non-vegan hydrolysed Keratin. It's composed of a combination of natural and botanical derived Wheat Amino Acids and Soy Amino Acids as well as Arginine HCL and Serine, both commonly known as the building blocks of hair. It does all that while improving the previous formulas ability to strengthen, reduce frizz and protect the hair!
