Choosing a vegan life with Sönd
The reasons for adopting a vegan lifestyle are varied and differ from person to person, but one thing is certain: more and more people are choosing veganism every day. There are many health benefits to following a vegan lifestyle, not to mention the sense of well-being that comes from consuming more mindfully and ethically.
One of the many reasons for choosing a vegan lifestyle is environmental protection. Industrialised animal farming is a major contributor to environmental degradation. Generally speaking, vegan diets are more sustainable because less water and crops are required. In the long term, making the switch to a vegan diet can be an extremely effective means of reducing our impact on the environment.
The science on plant based diets
These days, much research has been done on the health benefits of plant-based diets. Regular consumption of plant-based foods are considered to be rich essential vitamins and minerals. Adherence to a vegan diet is low in saturated fat, high in dietary fibre and filled with antioxidants, which can reduce our risk of certain health issues such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
Many others adhere to a vegan lifestyle for ethical reasons. Purchasing vegan and cruelty-free products is a simple, yet effective way to take a stand against animal cruelty. Vegan products which have not been tested on animals tend to have more simplistic and natural ingredients. Not only this, but vegan products contain no animal-derived ingredients. Animal right aside, regular use of vegan products is healthier for your skin.
This is why all Sönd products are suitable for vegans. The packaging of Sönd skincare and supplements are almost entirely recyclable, and Sönd products are 100% cruelty free.
Key ingredients used
Silica, the key ingredient in the Sönd line of skincare products is a compound made out of the two most abundant elements in the Earth's crust, silicon and oxygen. Natural, plentiful, and most importantly, ethical.
We all have our own reasons for choosing veganism, and thankfully, adopting a vegan lifestyle is now easier than ever before. By choosing to make more mindful and ethical selections with the products we buy, we can do good while feeling great, inside and out.
