We all know converting to the vegan life is easier said than done. However, there is one category that will make taking the leap into veganism easier than ever! It’s no secret that vegan skincare has been the latest buzz term in the beauty world. The continuous rise in demand evidently shows that vegan beauty is not a temporary trend and is here to stay.
One of the most popular beauty treatments offered as a vegan alternative is collagen and is available in various forms, such as supplements and skin serums. Collagen can be consumed to treat different concerns, such as skin and hair – but what exactly is it? Is vegan collagen as effective as non-vegan collagen?
Our bodies naturally produce collagen, which is responsible for our skin’s strength, elasticity, and suppleness. Unfortunately, natural collagen begins declining in our mid-20s, which explains the various forms of collagen offered on the market.
Collagen is typically derived from marine sources. However, many beauty brands have transitioned to plant-based alternatives for ethical reasons. If vegan collagen is just as effective as animal collagen, why not convert?
Benefits of Collagen
Collagen helps to promote collagen synthesis and moisture retention - it works as a great humectant to bind and hold water to skin for enhanced moisturization. While plumping the skin to fill lines and wrinkles, this intensive ingredient boosts elasticity and firmness to rejuvenate for younger looking skin. As collagen primarily works to improve skin hydration, it fortifies the skin barrier to protect from free radical damage.
Vegan Collagen – Taking the Vegan Beauty Pledge
Meet Sonage Skincare’s final piece to taking the vegan pledge! After 18 months of R&D, we have reformulated our Collagen Boosting Serum to contain all plant-sourced ingredients. Our plant-based collagen is a new innovative technology created by binding together rice amino acids, soy protein and baboab adansonia. These key ingredients result in a complex that provides an organic compound similar to animal-derived collagen in function and sensory profile.
As of March 2021, Sonage Collagen Boosting Serum is 100% vegan, certified by the American Vegetarian Association (AVA). Our products only consist of sustainable plant-based formulas to help make informed choices and confident selections.
