Soya Free Beauty Products and Cosmetics
At Beautyologie we feature some of the best soya-free beauty brands and products.
How are soy products made?
Soy products are made from soybeans. The high demand for soybeans and products made with soy is having a negative impact on our environment. As demand increases, huge areas of natural land are converted into soy plantations, causing wide-scale deforestation and other devastating effects.
Almost all soy is genetically modified (GMO). Its genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. There is nothing natural about it.
Do products made from soy cause allergies?
Topical soy allergies are common enough to have their own diagnosis- Soy Contact Dermatitis. Soy contact dermatitis occurs when the skin reacts negatively to soy, causing swelling, itching, and redness, and even pain.
What is Tocopherol?
Another name for Vitamin E is Tocopherol. Tocopherol is a fat-soluble nutrient that is found in nuts, seeds, and some vegetable and seed oils. It is sourced from sunflower seeds, soy, and wheat germ. GMO soy based tocopherol is the most commonly used tocopherol on the beauty and cosmetics market.
