Letter From Our Founder



Veganism is about more than diet... it’s about avoiding animal products and ingredients in all areas of your life. The last decade has seen a food revolution, and the same is true for skincare and beauty products. You've demanded transparency, understanding, and, most importantly, safety... and I am dedicated to ensure that my products exemplify those things.

The skincare fast-food equivalents are on their way out ... because we want to make better choices, not just for ourselves, but for our planet. This global change in mindset has created a completely new sector of skincare: vegan products. But... not all vegan products are the same.

Did you know there were animal products in your skincare? I don't blame you if you didn't. When you start to look, you'll be surprised just how many animal products are found in skincare, cosmetics, and nail polishes.

Many traditional skincare ingredients are derived from animals. Do you recognize any of the following?
  • Beeswax
  • Collagen
  • Keratin
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Squalene
  • Lanolin
  • Stearic acid
  • Elastin
  • Honey
  • Silk

Don't panic if you're vegan and you see ingredients you've been using. Some of these ingredients can come from more than one source. Hyaluronic acid, for example, can be extracted from rooster combs OR created via bacterial fermentation.

Other ingredients on this list have no non-animal alternative. Lanolin, for example is a wax taken from the wool of a sheep. Lanolin is known to help skin retain hydration. If lanolin is in a skincare product, the product can't be vegan-friendly (although it could qualify as cruelty-free).

So, what is the Vegan Skincare Difference?

Vegan-friendly skincare eliminates all animal-derived ingredients. In other words, vegan skincare is made from plants and minerals, as well as safe synthetically created ingredients.

If you want to completely avoid animal products in your skincare, look for any of these three independent certification stamps typically found on “vetted” vegan beauty products:

  • PETA offers two stamps: 'cruelty-free' and 'vegan'.
  • The Vegan Society
  • Choose Cruelty Free 

Just as you'd see a vegan 'V' on a plant-based dinner, you'll also see a bunny symbol or plant symbol on a vegan-friendly skincare product. Not all vegan brands or products bear these stamps, but if you want to pick 100% vegan skincare quickly, the stamps offer a shortcut to whether they are or aren’t.

I understand that shopping for vegan skincare can be a time-consuming task, so I created “I Am Earth” - making it not only easy to find everything you need and trust in one product line, but also... and equally important... very affordable.

Happy Shopping

Why Vegan Skincare Matters


Why Vegan Skincare Matters

1. It Benefits All Skin Types

Because they do not use animal testing, vegan and cruelty-free skincare products contain natural and organic ingredients. These are much more gentle on the skin, rather than harsh artificial chemical ingredients that are usually found in commercial skincare products. Also, because vegan skincare tends to be more gentler on the skin, these products can be excellent choices for people with chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

2. Anti-Aging Powers

Natural vegan skincare ingredients can provide the best anti-aging skincare results. A combination of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and botanical extracts can help rejuvenate the skin and give you a healthy glow.

3. Good for Mother Nature

Animal cruelty is a huge concern when using animal-based product, but there are more ways these products can harm us. Furthermore, the industries that produce the product can also have negative effects on the environment, such as pollution and deforestation. By switching to vegan skincare products that do not contain animal by-products, you can have radiant skin and make a difference.

4. Plants Can Help Your Skin Without Side Effects

Vegan skincare is made of plant-based ingredients that can help to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin without any harsh chemicals.
