What Does Cruelty-Free Mean to Us

If you’re a skincare enthusiast like us, you’re familiar with the term ‘cruelty-free’. It’s quickly gaining popularity in the beauty industry as more and more brands — including glowoasis — advocate for the well-being and safety of animals. Of course, though, we all have our own reason for being cruelty-free, and this term represents something different for each of us. To learn our cruelty-free story, keep reading below:

Cruelty-free skincare means creating a safer world for animals

Ever since launching in 2020, everything we’ve done has been led with kindness. Whether that’s showing kindness to our skin, animals or the planet, we genuinely want to make a positive impact on the world around us through our skincare. With The Humane Society reporting that approximately 500,000 animals are harmed or killed globally every year in cosmetic tests, and that only 41 countries internationally have banned animal cosmetic testing, we knew we had to take a strong stance to protect and improve the lives of our furry friends.

Cruelty-free skincare means improving our skin, the lives of animals AND the planet

Why should you choose cruelty-free skincare? Because of all the incredible benefits it offers. For starters, our cruelty-free skincare is better for your skin. Here at glowoasis, we formulate all our skincare products with vegan probiotics. This is our signature ingredient and has been found to calm, protect and hydrate your skin for a younger, healthier-looking complexion. 

Besides our use of vegan probiotics, glowoasis’s cruelty-free skincare is also better for your skin because we don’t use any animal by-products. We’re 100% vegan, 100% of the time. Ingredients that are derived from animals often cause skin irritation and clogged pores. But, with our vegan, cruelty-free skincare, you can feel confident with what you’re applying to your skin. 

Cruelty-free skincare is also better for animals! As we’ve mentioned earlier, switching over to cruelty-free skin care helps save hundreds of thousands of animals’ lives annually. With this approach to skincare, animals won’t be subjected to cosmetic testing, which in turn creates a safer atmosphere for them. 

Last, but certainly not least, cruelty-free skincare helps better the planet. Animal-based beauty tends to cause higher carbon emissions, deforestation, and waste, while vegan, cruelty-free skincare has been proven to lower deforestation and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. Every ingredient in every product is a step in the right direction.

Cruelty-free skincare means never wavering on your commitment

We have never, and will never, waver on our cruelty-free promise.  With glowoasis, you can trust that we won’t test our products or ingredients on animals — including in the foreign markets.  We also won’t partner with any factories that do, and since we’re vegan, we don’t use any animal by-products in our formulas. Our team always uses cruelty-free testing methods to bring you that results-driven, clean skincare you love. 

Together, we have the power to create change and make a difference for our fur-ever friends. Learn more about our My Skin Chooses Compassion campaign here, and don’t forget to begin your cruelty-free journey with us by shopping here.
