We entirely respect and honor those in the endurance athlete space who are vegan and use this lifestyle for personal choices, to help our planet, or to be healthy. At Zealios, we support anyone and everyone who laces up, clips in, puts their swim cap on, or gets outside. It's not up to us to tell you how to do it!
But if you do live a vegan lifestyle, it may require a bit more research and due diligence to determine if the products you're putting on your skin are vegan. The great news for Zealios fans? Our products are vegan AND cruelty-free. We NEVER test on animals!
Because we aim to have naturally derived ingredients in our products, this makes us an easy choice for vegan triathletes, runners, swimmers, cyclists, and hikers. And for those who are not living a vegan lifestyle (which is 100% OK!) it is still important to evaluate what is absorbed through your skin from the products you use. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and everything from lotion to sunscreen to body wash gets absorbed. Though these may be trace amounts, they add up with each product use. You can slather and scrub without worry when using Zealios products because they are vegan and include ingredients that you can pronounce.
