All-vegan body care lines have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and we’re delighted by this trend. It’s no longer necessary to get your cruelty-free shampoo, lotion, and conditioner from the bulk jug at your local co-op. You can purchase high-quality products from a variety of companies, and their numbers are growing larger every day.
Derma-e began in 1984 at a small health food store in California, and expanded to a robust company with an impressive web and retail presence. They offer a wide array of items that appeal to all budgets, hair and skin types. Their website,www.dermae.com, showcases an impressive selection of cleansers, exfoliants, eye creams, serums, shampoos, etc. We recently purchased a tube of their Nourishing Conditioner ($9.99). This creamy concoction is chock-full of apricot seed and argan oils. Provitamin B5 and quinoa provide moisture and add nutrients to your hair. This product is great for everyday use and safe for color-treated hair.
Your face takes the brunt of air pollution and other environmental impurities, so you need a product that is strong enough to exfoliate them away, yet gentle enough to offer nutrients and moisture. Derma-e’s Microdermabrasion Scrub ($32.50) is an award-winning formula, comprised of citrus oil, lime and lemon peel oils, vitamin E, grape seed oil, and dead sea salt. It buffs away dead skin, leaving your face smooth and glowing. Like all of the company’s offerings, this product is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s also soy, gluten and GMO-free, and comes in a recyclable container. A highly-rated, customer favorite!
Your tender hands also receive a lot of punishment from the elements. Soften them with Derma-e’s Vitamin E Lavender and Neroli Therapeutic Moisture Shea Hand Cream ($7.95). The shea butter and vitamin E are enhanced with organic olive fruit oil, cranberry seed oil, jojoba seed oil, green tea Leaf extract, and aloe vera. This vegan, paraben and phthalate-free product works great, even on extremely dry, cracked hands! It penetrates deep into your skin, nourishing and healing it. A little dab is all you need.
Derma-e is generous, offering free shipping on orders over $25. They support humanitarian causes, such as the Special Olympics, Keep America Beautiful, and Vitamin Angels. Most folks are familiar with the first two names, but not necessarily the third. Vitamin Angels offers vitamins to low-income women and children all over the world. Derma-e’s attention to quality and animal preservation is beyond reproach. You really can’t go wrong when you order products from this company. Pick up a few extra as gifts for loved ones!
