Vegan skincare is all the rage lately, but with so many different brands out there, it can be challenging to narrow it down to make the best choice. In terms of practical and ethical skincare, nothing compares to WOW Skin Science.
What Is Vegan Skincare?
Vegan skincare is skincare that does not contain animal ingredients, animal by-products, or other animal-derived ingredients. We know what you’re thinking... what kinds of animal ingredients would even be in your skincare products in the first place? As it turns out, these ingredients are more common than you’d think.
Take squalene, for example. Squalene is commonly used in moisturizers for its anti-aging effects. However, squalene is extracted from shark liver oil and is not vegan-friendly.
Other examples include collagen and elastin that are extracted from animal tissues, bones, skins, and ligaments. Again, these products may have great anti-aging benefits at the cost of animal lives.
The good news is that alternative ingredients are often vegan-friendly and just as effective as their non-vegan counterparts.
Why Should You Choose Vegan Skincare?
Now that you know a bit more about vegan skincare, you’re probably wondering why you should choose these types of products. After all, you already have an established skincare routine with products that you like. Why would you want to change that?
Here are some of the reasons why you should choose vegan skincare:
Better for Animals
First of all, vegan skincare products are better for animals. Using animal-derived ingredients may involve the killing of animals -- or at the very least harming them for parts. When you take a stand against these kinds of practices, you can effectively lower the demand for these products and save animals in the process.
Better for You
Second of all, vegan skincare products often contain alternative ingredients that are more beneficial to you and your skin. Vegan skincare brands are likely to embrace more natural ingredients instead of harsh and synthetic ingredients.
These gentle and natural ingredients are better for your skin and your overall health -- this is especially true if you struggle with sensitive skin that’s easily irritated.
Better for the Environment
Finally, vegan skincare products are better for the environment. Generally speaking, the practices involved in animal cruelty aren’t good for the environment.
Furthermore, many vegan brands are committed to eco-friendly business practices by using recyclable packaging materials and the ethical sourcing of ingredients.
We Are More Than Just Vegan
While one of our main tenets is veganism, we go beyond this to become an ethical and sustainable brand that you can feel good purchasing from. Check out some of our other principles:
In addition to being vegan-friendly, we are also proudly cruelty-free. We believe that you can’t truly be vegan without being cruelty-free which is why we never test on animals. You can rest assured that no animals are being harmed by your beauty products.
We do not utilize any harmful synthetic ingredients in any of our products. We believe that natural ingredients can be just as effective.
As a result, we use natural ingredients that have been used for personal care for thousands of years. We scour the world in search of the highest quality plant extracts and potent formulations for natural products that are just as effective as their artificial counterparts.
Our brand has deep roots in the magical Himalayas. Our quality bioactives are all sourced from this incredible region.

What We Offer
Now that you know more about what we stand for in general let’s talk about what types of products we specifically offer. We go beyond just skincare to hair care, men’s care, and essential oils.
Getting all of your personal care products from an ethical and reputable brand is easy, thanks to WOW Skin Science.
Skin Care Products
We offer a wide range of vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and cruelty-free skincare products. Our wide range of products can help address a variety of different skincare concerns and skin types.
Specifically, we offer face washes, mist tonics, body washes, body moisturizers, body scrubs, face masks, face serums, and face moisturizers.
If you have oily skin and are dealing with stubborn blemishes, we have the perfect skincare routine for you. You can begin with our Activated Charcoal Foaming Face Wash, move on to our Hyaluronic Acid Water Gel Moisturizer, and finish with our Activated Charcoal Face Mask to help eliminate any leftover blemishes.
If you have dull or hyperpigmented skin, you should use a different approach. You can begin with our Ubtan Foaming Face Wash, move on to our Ubtan Face and Body Scrub, and finish with our Vitamin C Face Serum. This will help to effectively exfoliate your skin and lighten any remaining dark spots for an even skin tone.
If you have dry or aging skin, we have the proper regimen for you. You can begin with our Aloe Vera Face Wash, move on to our Hyaluronic Acid Water Gel Moisturizer. Finish with our Vitamin C Face Serum to quench dry and aging skin and effectively fill in unsightly fine lines and wrinkles.
Hair Care Products
Now that your skin is taken care of, it’s time to talk about your hair. Many mainstream hair care products contain harsh ingredients that could be stripping and damaging your hair.
Instead, take a more natural approach with our hair care products. Specifically, we offer shampoos, conditioners, hair oils, hair masks, and leave-in treatments.
If your hair is constantly heavy, oily, and packed with build-up, you need to take a more natural approach. Specifically, apple cider vinegar can be used to gently and naturally clarify your hair to remove build-up from previous hair products.
If you’re struggling with hair breakage or hair fall, you need the right products to help you get your hair back. You can begin with our Coconut Milk Shampoo, follow with our Coconut Milk Conditioner, and finish up with our Castor Oil to strengthen our existing hair and promote the regrowth of any hair you have lost.
Finally, if you’re dealing with frizzy and otherwise unruly hair, you need to take a nourishing approach. You can use our Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner Pack before using our Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask for Dry and Damaged Hair. These products will nourish, smooth, and strengthen your hair while providing a beautiful gloss and shine.
Men’s Care Products
Skin care and hair care aren’t just for women, so we created a line specifically for men. We offer 2-in-1 shampoo and body wash sets in several different formulas with intoxicating and long-lasting natural fragrances. No matter which formula you choose, your hair and skin will thank you for taking a more natural approach.
Finally, we offer essential oils that are 100% therapeutic grade that you can use for aromatherapy, massage, inhalation, and more. These tiny bottles are jam-packed with health and mind benefits.
Some of our favorites include jasmine, frankincense, patchouli, ylang-ylang, lemon, rose otto, tea tree, eucalyptus, sweet orange, and cedarwood -- but check them all out to see what they offer.
