If you haven’t yet had a chance to peruse your social media feeds this year, you may not be aware that the Veganuary movement is currently taking the world by storm. The movement, which encourages people to try being vegan for the month, is now more popular than ever. While some simply choose to make changes to their dietary habits, others commit to the full vegan lifestyle, abstaining from the purchase or use of goods containing animal-derived substances, particularly within the industries of fashion and cosmetics. Fortunately, minimalist skin care brand Laponie of Scandinavia has recently launched a vegan gel face cream (making some decisions that little bit easier) featuring our advanced colloidal oatmeal, Oat COM, and Virgin Poppy Seed Oil, a natural non-oat derived ingredient.
Oat COM is a key ingredient in our product portfolio. Alongside anti-irritation benefits, it facilitates optimal skin hydration through the formation of a protective barrier effective at reducing water loss from the skin.
In addition to our oat-derived ingredients, we also offer some derived from other natural sources. Virgin Poppy Seed Oil is one of these ingredients and contains sterols, vitamin E, and has a high linoleic acid content, aiding the recovery of skin barrier mechanisms whilst moisturising the skin.
The Face Cream
The Face Cream is a key product within Laponie of Scandinavia’s range of minimalist skin care. CEO and Founder, Kristina, notes that “climate, sleep, food, stress levels, hormones and a myriad of other factors can influence the appearance of skin” so the range is created with lifestyle in mind rather than skin type. A company conscious of sustainability, safety and ethical values, Laponie of Scandinavia’s Face Cream is silicone, mineral oil, alcohol and cruelty free and is packaged predominantly in aluminium.
With the popularity of veganism on the rise, increasing consumer demand for vegan cosmetics must be fulfilled. Here at Oat Cosmetics, our range of ingredients are all vegan and suitable for a variety of cosmetic applications, so if you’re interested in formulating with our natural ingredients contact your local distributor now.
