Why You Should Consider Switching to Vegan Shampoo

People become vegans for a variety of reasons. For most, preventing animal cruelty is their goal. Others seek the health benefits of a vegan diet high in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods. A few simply hate plants with a burning passion and seek vengeance for all of the asparagus they were forced to eat as children (not really…but maybe!).

For those devoted to animal wellbeing (or to the punishment of all plants,) veganism isn’t just a diet. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a commitment to removing animal products from every area of their lives. Just as they wouldn’t consider eating a steak or a block of cheese, they try to avoid animal byproducts in their clothing (just say “no” to leather) and everywhere else they’re found. That includes personal care products.

But here’s the thing. In the same way that many people enjoy the benefits of a vegan diet even if they don’t entirely subscribe to the underlying philosophy, people can enjoy the benefits of vegan shampoo and other personal care products without calling themselves vegan. Because there’s far more to vegan products than the fact that they’re cruelty-free. They’re also better for your hair and skin. Happy Cappy products provide the perfect example.

Happy Cappy Does More Than Just Vegan Shampoo

We take our commitment to people and animals very seriously. We’re officially recognized as a vetted-vegan business and a vegan-friendly brand by vKind, the online community dedicated to helping vegans find brands aligned with their values. That means our offerings meet stringent formulation, testing, and safety guidelines.

Our full product line is formulated vegan to the highest standards. We offer vegan shampoo in two varieties. Our daily shampoo and body wash is a gentle daily cleanser that’s free of harsh chemicals. In fact, 95% of our ingredients have natural, plant-based origins. For infants and children suffering from seborrheic dermatitis, our cruelty-free, chemical-free medicated shampoo and body wash gently and effectively eliminates the flaking, scaling, and redness associated with seborrheic dermatitis without causing irritation. Older people can also find relief with our medicated shampoo that soothes  teenage dandruff, adult seborrheic dermatitis, and fungal acne. We have a vegan shampoo for every need.

But your hair won’t have all the fun. We care for your skin, too. Our baby eczema cream is a clinically-tested moisturizing cream that protects and restores the skin’s delicate moisture barrier. Or for a more holistic approach, try our daily skin regimen for irritated skin that includes moisturizing cream and more to keep your skin healthy and glowing, all without irritants like fragrances, dyes, alcohol, sulfates, phthalates, and parabens. 

Because with vegan shampoo and other personal care products, what isn’t included is just as important as what is. Happy Cappy derives nearly all of our ingredients from plants, never includes animal byproducts, and never uses animals for testing. And we leave out all of the harsh chemicals that can be murder on people with sensitivities. Instead of beating up your skin, go after a worthy target…those fiendish plants and vegetables that taunted you growing up. Use them for your benefit (who are we kidding…we can’t stay mad out our chlorophyll-wielding brethren.)

Why Make the Switch to Vegan Shampoo?

Because it’s a better product. For one, it works just as well as non-vegan options without the questionable animal practices that sometimes come along for the ride. The vegan philosophy requires manufacturers to be more intentional about what they put in their products. That means each ingredient is weighed and measured. If it doesn’t promote human and animal wellbeing, it isn’t included. 

What you’re left with, particularly with Happy Cappy, are products designed to clean effectively without harsh chemicals and without stripping protective oils or damaging the skin’s moisture barrier. vKind approves, animals everywhere approve, and your family will, too.
