What skincare brands are vegan?

The production of vegan goods is a rapidly growing industry. People want to know that their products are made ethically and consist of ethically sourced ingredients – and skincare products are no exception. Fortunately, there are a number of brands that only use ethically-sourced vegan ingredients. Vegan skincare brands are abundant, and the number is only increasing.

The brands of vegan-only skincare are too numerous to fit into a single article, so we'd like to showcase some of the brands who have done this especially well.Acure prides itself on being 100% vegan, making products for the skin, body, and hair that are free from animal ingredients. Tree To Tub specializes in skincare and hair care sourced with only vegan ingredients. Superbloom skincare products by Grove are also 100% vegan.

Is vegan skincare better?

One key benefit of vegan skin products is the elimination of many chemical ingredients. This makes them far less likely to irritate the skin. The natural, plant-based ingredients in most vegan skincare products absorb into the pores and often provide a more nutrient-rich treatment to the skin than chemical-based products. And, of course, vegan skincare products keep cruelty out of the ingredient list. If that’s the standard you go by, then there's no question that vegan skincare is the right choice for you.

What is the difference between vegan and cruelty-free?

Vegan and cruelty-free almost always go hand-in-hand. Love for animals and concern for their wellbeing is at the heart of both standards, but vegan and cruelty-free do not mean the same thing.

Vegan means the elimination of any animal-based ingredients. There are varying factions of veganism. For instance, some vegans are fine with beeswax or honey. For purist vegans, if the product comes from an animal in any way, shape, or form, it's off limits and shouldn't be used – regardless of what animal product it is or how it was acquired.

Cruelty-free refers to the elimination of animal testing. Since the inception of the modern cosmetic age, animals were used to test cosmetics for potential negative reactions. Once testing was completed, the animals were disposed of – regardless of the test's outcome. More and more, animal testing is becoming a thing of the past. A product can be cruelty-free but not vegan.
