Discover all our vegan skincare products.

Remember when the vegan lifestyle was something only overly health-conscious people were obsessed about? Yea, not anymore.

Veganism has made its way into our lives in several forms, namely vegan skincare, as a solution to take care of both our health and the planet. Discover the benefits of using vegan cosmetics and how to find the best ones out there.

What is vegan skincare?

Just as its name implies, vegan skincare refers to beauty products that do not contain any animal ingredients or by-products. Therefore, even traditional ingredients like beeswax, honey, carmine, lanolin, and animal-based collagen and keratin aren’t used. At all.1

According to PETA, a vegan product contains no animal ingredients. This means it’s free from ingredients made from animal fur, skin, bones or meat, and contains no egg or milk products.

For example, many skin cleansers contain stearic acid, which can be made from animal fatty acids. And many beauty products contain beeswax, an ingredient made by our friends, the bees.2

Is vegan skincare good for you?

If they’re free of ingredients of concern according to EWG, they absolutely are. When vegan cosmetics mostly rely on plant-based ingredients, they can provide your skin with bountiful vitamins and antioxidant properties only nature can offer.

The benefits of a vegan skincare routine

  1. Gentler on your skin

    We all know that our skin absorbs a significant amount of chemicals we encounter every day.3> So why add more by lathering your body with ingredients of concern? When a vegan skincare routine includes EWG VERIFIED™ products, it contains fewer ingredients of concern that could irritate the skin, aggravate any current skin conditions, and even cause harm to other parts of your body.

    However, just because something is vegan, it doesn’t mean you can’t be allergic to it. If you have especially sensitive skin, make sure you opt for dermatologically tested vegan care.

  2. Animal-approved

    Because they don’t use animal ingredients or by-products, vegan cosmetics tend to be better for wildlife.

  3. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants

    Did your parents always tell you to eat your veggies? Well, that’s because plant-based foods often have a plethora of nutritious goodness to offer, and it’s the same with plant-based skincare.

  4. Kinder to the planet

    The goal is always to protect our beautiful planet, and brands that offer vegan skincare tend to want that as much as you do. In fact, researchers at Oxford University said veganism is the single biggest way to improve your environmental impact, reducing your food carbon’s footprint by up to 73%.4 Because they use less harsh chemicals and help fight against deforestation due to the clear-cutting of trees to make room for animal grazing fields, vegan cosmetics are the most eco-conscious beauty product choice one can make.

How to find vegan skincare

It’s mostly about being careful as to not confuse this with other labels on products that could contain animal-derived.

  • Organic – The product was grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or any genetically modified organisms.
  • Natural - The product does not contain anything artificial or synthetic.

To find 100% vegan cosmetics, search the PETA database that contains more than 5,900 vegan companies that don’t test on animals. ALL ATTITUDE™ feature the PETA Beauty without Bunnies logo. Plus, our home and body care products are 100% vegan!

Next time you shop or use one of your favourite products, look out for the PETA Beauty without Bunnies logo.

You can also use the YUKA mobile app, which scans food and cosmetics products for clear information on their impact on health. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) also provides a database called Skin Deep to help consumers choose healthy body products. Based on EWG studies, it allows you to search online for over 70,000 products on the market to find out how they rate in toxicity and regulatory databases.

  • It’s the only way you can be sure the products do not contain any animal-derived raw materials (including honey and beeswax)
