Why is the Daily Exfoliant Cleanser not vegan like other SkinKick products?
SkinKick’s founder, Matty, is a chemical engineer who is strongly opposed to using harsh chemicals and toxins on the skin. Caviar extract is the safest way to exfoliate the skin without using harmful acids. Vegan mentor Tarah Herrera reached out to us in search for an explanation. This is what our founder shared with her:
Our Daily Exfoliant Cleanser isn’t vegan because of one ingredient that is very important to clear skin: caviar extract. Most skincare and beauty companies use harsh chemicals, such as salicylic acid, in their products to exfoliate or remove dead skin cells. “Why should I care”, you ask. Well, these same acids dry out your skin and strip the sebum layer, damaging your skin’s natural barrier.
At Skinkick, we do everything to protect your natural skin barrier because it guards your skin from unwanted bacteria and pollution. Unlike harmful acids, SkinKick uses a super gentle natural enzyme extracted from caviar to break the bond holding the dead skin cells onto the new skin cells. Every day, 4% of your skin cells die. If they aren’t removed each day, they will prevent your skincare products from being absorbed uniformly. SkinKick’s caviar extract is gentle enough that you can exfoliate twice a day to remove those dead skin cells without destroying the natural sebum layer. It is also happens to be natural and ethically sourced like the rest of our ingredients! This is why it is part of our “secret sauce” that prepares your skin for blemish relief and skin renewal.
Are you concerned about this ingredient being absorbed into your body? We looked into it! Our team studied absorption rates for different size molecules and concluded that the caviar extract used in our Daily Exfoliant Cleanser does NOT make it from the top of your skin into your gut. To demonstrate, try running a simple test: put sugar on your skin and soak it. Do you get a sugar buzz? If not, you may conclude that such a large molecule is not getting absorbed into your body.
With our mission to help the largest number of people kick their blemishes and breakouts to the curb naturally, we ultimately decided to include this powerful yet gentle extract. Although our Daily Exfoliant Cleanser isn’t vegan, it is cruelty-free, drug-free, toxin-free and 99% natural like our other products. At SkinKick, we deliver natural, safe and effective products that leave your skin clear, refreshed and glowing. We believe everyone deserves to be clear and confident!
