The vegan beauty market boom
Recent research suggests that more than 60% of ethically conscious shoppers are turning to vegan beauty products despite not following a vegan lifestyle. And in 2020 alone, of all the vegan products launched in the UK, 82% were vegan beauty products.
Move over tofu, there’s a new kid in town.
Thanks to the growth in the vegan beauty market, we now have the choice to make more conscious decisions about the products we buy and their impact on the environment. We have become more ethically conscious, moving away from products that are tested on animals, that contain toxic chemicals and microplastics. This is one of the reasons why the vegan beauty market is the fastest-growing vegan market. Predictions are that by 2027 it will be worth a staggering £21 billion globally.
But what do we actually mean by vegan beauty products? It means products that use plant-based ingredients, with no animal extracts or animal by-products involved in the manufacturing process.
Why go vegan?
That’s easy. It's impossible to defend the idea that harming animals in the name of beauty is acceptable. So, everyday people are now choosing products that have no animal derivatives in them at all. You want quality beauty products without compromising your principles. This rise in popularity and demand has led to high street beauty chains such as Boots and Superdrug getting on board and seeing a huge growth in sales of their own vegan beauty ranges.
Now there is a vast range of products on this ever-growing market for you to choose from, where natural, ethical alternatives have been sourced to create the products you love, but not to the detriment of any animals, and not compromising on quality. However research suggests that 68% of you are still unsure about what actually constitutes a vegan product and which ingredients are to be avoided at all costs. It’s a minefield. This fact is not helped by confusing labelling.
This is where Bloomtown comes in.
