Being environmentally friendly has been a trend in almost every industry in the past few years. As a result, veganism has been on the rise. Many vegans are concerned about the environmental and ethical issues that come from eating and using animal by-products.
Living according to a vegan diet is easy these days. However, for those that want to live a fully vegan lifestyle the beauty world can be a challenge. A lot of people are surprised to learn that many beauty brands use animal byproducts in their products.
For those who are vegan and are interested in Botox, you may be wondering whether this product is vegan-friendly. The answer isn’t simple.
As a product, Botox is vegan-friendly. However, in order to make sure the product is safe Botox is tested on animals. For many vegans, this would make the product not vegan-friendly.
The good news is that Allergan, the parent company of Botox, has set out to eliminate animal testing by 95% in the next three years. Many cosmetic companies want to phase out animal testing but are required by law to because they’re classified as medical products.
