If you arrived to this article, probably is because you are thinking about vegan cosmetics as a business possibility. You are in the correct place, because we are going to look into the concept and find out if this is a good opportunity or not.
What are vegan cosmetics?
Veganism is an ethical alternative to the consumption of products from animal exploitation, this philosophy is applied to all areas of daily life: food, clothing, personal care, etc. Vegan cosmetics products are like regular cosmetics, but without animal suffering.
Something that is known worldwide is that regular cosmetics companies makes cruel experiments in animals for test their products. In addition, some cosmetics are made with dead animal ingredients. Vegan cosmetics says “you don’t need to kill or hurt animals for make this kind of products”
Why people should prefer vegan cosmetics over the “normal” ones?
Well, the reasons are many. One of them is the European directive from 2013 that establishes the gradual elimination of animal trials in cosmetics. Many other countries have followed this tendency, and are making similar laws in their territories. In the future, it will be easier to make vegan cosmetics that regular ones.
On the other hand, there is an important growth in the interest of people in veganism in general. As a market that is growing, people demand more and more vegan types of products. A niche like cosmetics, so linked with animal cruelty, is a good target for introduce vegan alternatives.
You can see this vegan tendency in this graphic made by the BBC from Google search data that I share with you here:
This niche is also going to grow in the future
However, the BBC graphic that you have seen has relative values. You can see that in 2018 there was more interest in veganism than in 2008. However… how much money is that? I have a graphic for that too, that is made by the people of Statista:
In that graphic you can see a projection of the vegan cosmetics market, worldwide with quantities expressed in billions of dollars. Impressive, right? And this is just for vegan cosmetics!
One good example of business that is doing it today
With this numbers over the table, is very logical to find companies that are introducing new quality products into this growing market.
One of this companies is
Arolab. They have a very beautiful website, with a very clean design, as you can expect from a cosmetics business. As a web developer, I found myself very impressed with how this company created their website.
Arolab especialices in organic premium eco-vegan cosmetics. As you can see in their website, the product are sold individually or in packs, so is suitable for retail market and wholesale. Check their website to find out more!
One more thing: Vegan cosmetics aren’t just a label, is a philosophy
One of the things that captures more my attention with Arolab website is the level of compromise that this people have with the vegan cause. As you can see, all the process are made eco-friendly:
For example, the package is recyclable, the shipping of the products is made in eco-transport… and even the website is in a server with zero impact… and, at the end of the day, this kind of details is what make the people choose this kind of companies.
