Proper skin care extends beyond the skin on your face -- your body deserves some TLC, too! Give the skin on your body the same love and attention by upgrading to a vegan body wash.
Why Is A Vegan Body Wash Better?
Your skin absorbs whatever is applied to it. Think about all the products you actually put on your body, including skincare, body lotion, soaps, etc. Have you considered how these products may contain harmful synthetics, harsh chemicals, and toxins?
Vegan products are produced without using animal-derived ingredients, making them a gentler and safer alternative, especially for those with sensitive skin. Instead, these products are developed with plant-based formulas that contain more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which help repair and nourish the skin from the inside out.
Be more mindful of all products in your daily skincare routine. We tend to pay more attention to what we use on our faces, but body care products are of equal importance. Level up your skin care game by switching to a vegan body wash so you can indulge yet still get squeaky clean.
What To Look For In A Vegan Body Wash
Looking for skincare products that get the job done without sacrificing the health of your skin can be a struggle, and body washes are no exception. The right vegan body wash will not only wash away dirt, sweat, and oil, but will also leave your skin moisturized, bright, and balanced. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you use a vegan body wash that’s also fragrance-free since artificial fragrances can irritate the skin. Here are some things to look for when shopping for a vegan body wash:
Opt for a body wash made with ingredients you actually recognize. Many plant-based ingredients do wonders for the skin:
- Citrus: Fresh citrus, including orange, lemon, tangerine, mandarin, and grapefruit provides anti-irritant and soothing properties. These antioxidant-rich fruits revitalize, brighten, soften, and smooth skin
- Chamomile: has anti-inflammatory properties, cleans ick and oil out of pores while soothing skin
- Apple: antioxidant-rich, helps tighten and tone, and is a natural astringent that can help reduce the appearance of pore size
- Floralux: our signature ingredient created from a chlorophyll-copper blend that helps reduce redness and hyperpigmentation, even skin tone and texture, and nourish skin from the inside out
There are plenty of vegan body washes that can help save you from dry, parched skin, which is particularly critical during the colder months. For deeper hydration, look for body washes made with moisture-rich ingredients like aloe vera and natural oils like olive and shea.
To ensure your skin isn’t vulnerable to dryness, avoid showering or bathing with water that’s too warm or hot. Keep the water temperature lukewarm so that your skin isn’t stripped of its natural oils, which can cause uncomfortable dryness. Pat yourself dry rather than rubbing your towel all over body, then immediately apply a hydrating lotion to help lock in all the moisture.
If you’re still using body washes that contain microbeads, it’s time to get your act together! Ditch the microbeads for a more eco-friendly option. Our Sudsy body wash contains biodegradable jojoba granules that dissolve as they moisturize and gently exfoliate the skin. With Sudsy, you can lather up with pure plant perfection!
If pairing your body wash with a loofah, wash cloth, brush, or any other shower tool, keep in mind that these can be breeding grounds for bacteria if kept in the shower, so they should be replaced on a frequent basis.
For Blemish Control
If you struggle with chest or back acne or other breakouts on your body, look for a vegan body wash that contains acne-fighting ingredients like tea tree or salicylic acid. Salicylic acid helps disrupt breakout cycles by exfoliating skin and deep-cleaning pores while tea tree has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties to help battle blemishes.
