VegSource Congratulates Award-winning Vegan Skincare Line

November 11, 2002 -- When Lamas Beauty launched its unique, vegan hair and skin care products about a year and a half ago, we at VegSource took (for us) the unprecedented step of personally endorsing these products. We did this for several reasons -- including the fact that we know the owners of Lamas personally, and recognize that they have the highest integrity imaginable; but most importantly, we honestly believe that Lamas manufactures the very best hair and skin care line currently on the market. And there is something else that is of utmost importance to us and our guests: the entire Lamas Line contains no animal ingredients, and is cruelty free. In other words, the finest skin and hair care products available today also happen to be vegan.

So it is with great pride that we announce that one of our favorite members of the Lamas skin line, the Pro-Vita C Moisturizer SPF 15, has won a highly prestigious and coveted award from Health Magazine.

Here is what one of the judges said about this luscious product:

"A good facial moisturizer should be more than just something you dab on after cleansing and before applying sunscreen. This one fills the bill—in large part because of its one-two punch of potent antioxidants. Like many effective moisturizers, this one contains ingredients like shea butter to lubricate the skin and humectants such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture," says judge [dermatologist] Lisa Donofrio, M.D. But what really impressed her was Pro-Vita C's 10 percent concentration of L-Ascorbic acid (the most stable form of vitamin C, which can be absorbed into the skin without losing its effectiveness). "Vitamin C is one of the best-known ingredients used to fight free radical damage caused by pollution and sun exposure," Donofrio explains. Also included is the antioxidant superoxide dismutase, a promising anti-ager that usually isn't seen in nonprescription skin treatments. This moisturizer's naturopathic ingredients, like arnica and aloe vera, decrease the likelihood of irritation, making it ideal for nearly everyone—even those with sensitive skin, Donofrio adds."


Congatulations to our friends at Lamas Beauty for winning this impressive award, we are so delighted that many other people are discovering what Vegsource guests and staff have known from the very beginning: Lamas Beauty is the best!
