One of the great things about making your own handmade skin and hair care products is that you can control what is or isn't inside them. Vegan skin and hair care products can be hard to find when shopping at big box stores. Ingredient labels can be confusing, and it can be hard to feel confident about the products you are purchasing.
By creating your own products, you can be completely certain that they are free of animal ingredients or byproducts. In fact, it's surprisingly easy to avoid using animal ingredients in most skin and hair care formulations. Vegetable Waxes, such as Candelilla and Carnauba Wax offer vegan friendly alternatives to Beeswax. Vegetable Oils and Butters are now almost always used in place of animal based lipids.
The following recipes are a selection of vegan friendly choices from the Natural Beauty Workshop. Have fun creating your own, homemade vegan skin and hair care products!
