Vegan body lotion to moisturize your skin.

Taking care of your skin is essential in the cold weather months. The colder temperatures and heated indoors can dry out your skin and make moisturizing a must.

There are a myriad of natural skin care products that contain organic plant-based and mineral ingredients but it doesn’t necessarily mean that these products can be used by vegans. While many people think that this lifestyle is just about eating plant-based foods, it’s also about not using or wearing any products that are derived from animals including beeswax, lanolin, honey, and pearl powder, according to mindbodygreen.

Today, with the growing popularity of veganism, it is easier to find body lotions and other skin care products that are safe for vegans to use but not all are labeled. Rather than constantly scanning ingredients, check out these seven vegan body lotions that will keep your skin hydrated and healthy all winter long.
