Vegan Beauty Products

Ingredients in beauty products can be downright ugly. Crushed insects in lipstick? Pig fat in soap? No thank you. If you’re looking for beauty products that steer clear of animal involvement, check out our vegan recommendations below:

Makeup

Love True Natural - Try the “Veganista” True Beauty box and get 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free make-up wrapped up in a pretty box and delivered to your door, monthly. True Beauty kindly sent us a sample, and we were very pleased with what was inside: full size ethical makeup for eyes, lips and skin in a variety of darling spring shades. It would make an excellent gift (read: Mother’s Day) to a lovely woman or to yourself! Browse all vegan products from Love True Natural by clicking here.

Hair Care

Alba - I love the way my hair feels and smells when I use Alba’s mangoo shampoo. I also love that I’m avoiding sulfates and parabens. Win, win.

LUSH - Conditioner often contains lanolin, a substance derived from sheep’s wool, but LUSH’s Veganese conditioner uses agar seawood gel instead. Veganese also contains rosemary, lavender and lemon oil, which make it smell divine. Click here for a review to see if it would work well with your hair.

LUSH has a number of vegan products that they are clearly marked on the site with helpful reviews of each product. But read the shampoo labels carefully, as many contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate, an ingredient that can cause skin and eye irritation.

 

Lotion

Pangea – Pangea products are organic, fair trade and cruelty-free. Try the vegan and gluten-free brown sugar cocoa butter body polish.

 

 

It’s always a good idea to check your beauty product labels and know what you are putting on your skin, hair or face. Click here for 7 personal care product ingredients to avoid and check out PETA’s comprehensive list of animal-derived ingredients.

And if you want to be really sure about what you put on your skin, make your own personal care products! Try 11 One-Ingredient DIY Face Masks.
