These days, it seems like more and more people are committing to a vegan lifestyle. Among the more high-profile are former President Bill Clinton, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and ex-heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson. But what exactly is veganism and how do vegan sunless tanning products fit in?
Veganism is typically associated with diets in which individuals abstain from using animal (or animal-derived) products of any kind, including milk, meat, eggs, cheese and even honey. The philosophy underlying this practice – that animals are sentient beings rather than marketable commodities – also underlies the lifestyle choices that many people who identify as vegan make. In other words, someone who eats a vegan diet will more than likely oppose using animal products of any kind.
This is important to know because many skincare products contain fats that come from animals that have been slaughtered for their meat. Following is a list of some of the most common animal products you will find in many moisturizers and face creams:
glycerin (derived from collagen)
lanolin (derived from sheep’s wool)
stearic acid (derived from animal fat)
lactic acid (derived from animal milk)
allantoin (derived from cow’s urine)
