How Vegan Skincare is Revolutionising our Self-care

At Five Dot Botanics, it is our mission to challenge the status quo of the beauty industry by producing minimal ingredient vegan certified skincare. We focus on ingredients that come from plants and we are committed to the revolution against the use of animal products in skincare.

Given the global lock downs we have seen in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are now turning to self-improvement and self-care, including taking a closer look at the ingredients we use. Now is the time to examine our self-care practices, from learning and exercise, to how we look after our skin.

Whether you’re already a vegan or are simply curious about vegan-friendly beauty, vegan skincare products can do a lot for your skin and the world around you. Read on to learn more about some of the ways that natural and vegan skincare can revolutionise our selfcare regimes.

What is Vegan Skincare?

Vegan skincare products do not contain any animal by-products or ingredients. Many cosmetics and toiletries contain animal by-products such as lanolin from sheep, collagen from chicken, carmine from beetles, gelatin from cows and stearic acid from pigs, these animal ingredients are commonly used in lots of leading brands’ skincare products.

The entire Five Dot Botanics skincare range is completely free of animal products and by-products. We focus on using natural plant-based ingredients and using fewer and better ingredients in the products we make. Our products are cruelty-free and involve no animal testing.

Look for Vegan Certification

Five Dot Botanics’ commitment to being a vegan brand extends beyond words, we have been through a rigorous process to ensure that all our products are certified vegan by The Vegan Society. You can find the The Vegan Society logo on all our packaging. If you are looking for vegan products look for the logo as assurance that certain standards have been met.

Gentler on your skin

Our products are botanical and vegan and we are committed to using just five ingredients in any product we make, including extracts from plants, nuts, seeds and flowers. We choose only botanical ingredients that have proven to benefit the skin. In contrast, many skincare products on the market, vegan or otherwise, contain synthetic chemicals that may do more harm than good to your skin and can cause dryness, irritation and increased sensitivity.

Our vegan skincare range is gentle on your skin using ingredients from nature, working in harmony with your body to help repair your skin naturally. As we don’t use synthetic chemical fillers in our products, the result can be happy and healthy looking skin.

Better for your general health

Many conventional skincare products contain synthetic chemicals that you may be looking to avoid. Studies have shown that certain ingredients over time may affect your immune system or disrupt your endocrine systems. The more of these products we use, the more that toxins can accumulate in our body, potentially causing health issues down the line.

Our approach to botanical vegan skincare using minimal ingredients is designed to provide clarity and control over the ingredients that go on your skin.

Kinder to the environment

Our commitment to using fewer and better ingredients in skincare is aimed at reducing the number of resources we use from the planet. By switching to a minimal ingredient vegan skincare regime, you can join the revolution to protect the planet by reducing your personal impact on the environment.
