It’s World Animal Day, So Let’s Refresh On Why We Formulate Vegan

04 Oct 2022

Youth To The People’s Pro-Grade Vegan formulation philosophy is rooted in efficacious skincare that does good by your skin while being mindful of the planet and everyone who lives on it—that means no animal testing, always cruelty-free, and always vegan.

Our formulas are powered by nutrient-dense, premium superfoods—the kale, yerba mate, and superberries you know and love— and also clinical actives, all for the benefit of your skin’s health and the planet. This means we can create vegan formulas using vegan, lab-made, and biodesigned ingredients that won’t negatively impact our animal friends.

Youth To The People is Skincare For All—our formulas are good for your skin, and our aim is to be good to the world we live in.

Some animal-friendly, vegan, high-tech ingredients you’ll find in Youth To The People products:

Goji Stem Cell
A high-tech ingredient that has the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and firm the look of skin because of the unique way it functions; as with all stem cells, vegan Goji Stem Cell carries signals that, when applied to any other cells (say, the skin cells), will signal for those cells to function optimally. Looking to harness the power of Goji Stem Cell? Find it in the Superberry Dream Eye Cream.

Squalane (with an “a”) is actually a more stable derivative of squalene (the “e” version is non-vegan and sourced from animals, including sharks). We formulate with the “a” version, a sustainable and bio-identical vegan alternative often sourced from olives. You can find squalane (with an “a”!) in the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Oil and the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask.

Most recently, Youth To The People introduced the Polypeptide-121 Future Cream—and you can guess which vegan hero ingredient was biodesigned to mimic a section of human collagen—without using any animal-derived ingredients. Find this innovative and biotech vegan ingredient in the Future Cream.
