“Beauty is health,” or so the saying goes. The truth is, vegan makeup and skincare are not just helpful to animals, Mother Nature, and our skin; they’re better for our overall health too. Dipika Gupta is a Canada-based luxury vegan ready-to-wear designer with a line of vegan cosmetics currently residing in Montreal. With a South Asian vegetarian background, she focuses on developing sustainable and ethical fashion and beauty products – promising a paraben-free and cruelty-free skincare experience, offering a wide range of skincare solutions to customers worldwide.
Studies have found that the average woman puts up to 515 synthetic chemicals in her body daily without even knowing it. Dipika says that these chemicals can penetrate deep into our pores, upsetting our bodies’ natural balance and causing health problems.
She suggests that moving to vegan skincare and makeup means you cut back on the harsh artificial ingredients that our skin gets exposed to on a daily basis; this way, you can also look forward to better health in the long term. Dipika’s beauty brand KAVI KAVI personifies her vegetarian ideology. You are what you eat, so eating eco-friendly can positively influence your health and the environment you live in.
This lack of hidden pollutants in vegan makeup and skincare products makes them gentler on our skin, our largest and most sensitive organ. Dipika makes it simple to understand for everyone, saying,” vegan cosmetics contain far fewer ingredients than the regular items you see on cosmetic shelves. It makes them ideal for people with sensitive skin.”
A perfect example is makeup brushes, whose bristles come from exotic sources such as horse, pony, goat, and mink fur. Anyone who is allergic to animal hair knows instantly that something is wrong with the brush because it becomes uncomfortable to use. Thankfully, Dipika offers a complete range of synthetic makeup brushes, and she has come a long way, thanks to R and D (research and development). Most cannot tell the difference between the non-vegan and vegan versions. They also have sustainably sourced wooden handles.
Deeply rooted in North Indian culture, Dipika’s strong heritage infuses traditional healing practices through guilt-free organic produce. She has an advantage over competitors because her fashion and skincare products are a fusion of South Asian and North American traditions and values. She’s focused on taking KAVI KAVI one step further by transforming it into an international all-inclusive brand, resonating with customers of all ages, genders, and ethnicities.
