If you have tried Egg Whites in your home DIY face masks, you know exactly why this ingredient is coveted. The protein in the egg white makes your skin taut, gives you an even skin tone with a gorgeous natural sheen. I particularly love the result with this ingredient during my period when my skin feels dry and dull! It just perks it up.
However, I have received a few requests on recommending a Vegan alternative to Egg White. And if there is a suitable replacement to any animal by product then why not? We at VAUNT are always happy to explore various possibilities and we VAUNT the best.. sorry I couldn't resist the pun :)
