Why Vegan and Cruelty-Free Shampoo Matters

Fact: At Utilis, we really, really love our animals. So much so, that we often have a few four-legged friends roaming around our office throughout the day (and yes, it’s every bit as wonderful as you’d imagine it is). When you’re animal-lovers like us, it isn’t enough to just have a pet-friendly office, which is why we took the steps to become a 100% vegan and cruelty-free brand.

 If you’re not sure what that means for your hair or why it matters, we’re breaking it all down in one quick, easy, and animal-friendly guide to cruelty-free shampoo and hair care products.

What Makes a Product Vegan?

It’s simple, really — vegan products are those that do not contain any animal ingredients or animal byproducts. When dealing with beauty products specifically, that means ingredients like beeswax, honey, collagen, lanolin, gelatin, keratin, and animal-derived biotin are never used. To determine if a product is vegan, start by scanning the label and packaging for popular animal-derived ingredients.

Fortunately, for every animal-derived ingredient that’s used in beauty products, there’s also a safe, animal-friendly alternative that’s just as effective. That means shopping for vegan products is now easier than ever, so there’s really no excuse not to. It just takes a bit of knowledge and effort to make sure you understand what’s really in (and not in) a product.

Why Does Cruelty-Free Shampoo Matter to Us?

Utilis not only abstains from using animal ingredients and animal by-products in our formulas, but we also do not test on animals at any stage of product development. The result is effective, high-quality products that you can feel good about using.

From the start of our brand, we’ve focused on being clean and ethical in everything we do. For many hair care brands, that can seem limiting. But for us, it’s a necessity. We are always up for the challenge of improving our products and are committed to providing the best vegan, sulfate-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and cruelty-free shampoo, conditioner, and hairstyling products to help you feel better about what you’re putting (and not putting) on your body.

At Utilis, we pride ourselves on allowing your hair to live its best life. We want to help enhance natural hair textures, preserve color-treated hair, and fight off the effects of frizzy and dry hair with ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, and shea butter.

All of our hair care (and skin care and body care) products have zero animal ingredients and are never tested on animals. So whether you’re looking for shine-enhancing hair serum for glass-like locks, moisturizing shampoo to hydrate heat-damaged strands, or a co-wash for frizz-free coily and curly hair, Utilis is here for it.

Utilis Shampoo with Saw Palmetto & Argan Oil

Saw palmetto improved hair quality raised total hair count and increased hair density in people with hair loss. Argan oil contains compounds called phenols. These, along with antioxidants strengthen hair follicles and promote cell production on the scalp. The vitamins in this oil promote a healthy scalp which in turn, not only promotes hair growth but also makes sure that the new hair strands are thicker and healthier.
