The Best Vegan Face Care Brands to Shop Now
Vegan face care is a great way to ensure your skin is looking healthy and glowing without harming animals. Luckily, with today’s huge selection of vegan and cruelty-free beauty products, this is now more achievable than ever.
Vegan products are based entirely on plant-derived ingredients, and are typically free from harsh chemicals. They’re also a much more sustainable option, as animal-derived ingredients require a massive amount of water and energy to produce. The good news is, the vast majority of vegan skincare products are just as effective as traditional products containing animal by-products, and will not cause any allergic reactions in most people. However, it is always recommended to carry out a patch test to check how your skin reacts to any new product before use.
So, whether you’re a die-hard Vegan who’s been using only Vegan face products for years or are looking to try some more plant-based products, here are the best Vegan face care brands to shop now.
Veggie beauty brand Heimish is an absolute go-to for natural and cruelty-free skincare, with a line that includes everything from exfoliators to masks and cleanser to moisturizers — plus a few other must-haves in between! Its 100% Vegan Cleansing Oil is a great way to start your morning and gently cleanse your face before applying makeup, while its Green Tea Toner is perfect for locking in any base makeup or as a midday pick-me-up.
Another great option for clean, nourishing and glowing skin is the vegan range from Japanese beauty brand Milk Makeup. This New York-based brand isn’t only known for its coveted makeup, but it also has a whole skincare range that will leave your complexion looking fresh and radiant. Its Vegan Milk Moisturizer, PS34, is a true treat for dry skin — it contains oat milk to calm and argan milk to seal in moisture.
If you’re going all out with your Vegan face care routine, it’s a good idea to invest in a quality serum. And one we love is the Odacite Serum Concentrate, PS40 — it’s packed with a powerhouse blend of plant extracts that are specifically targeted to your skincare needs (i.e. clogged pores or hyperpigmentation).
In a world of ever-changing beauty and skincare trends, it’s important to stay on top of what’s in, what’s out, and how different things might affect your skin. So, be sure to keep up with our blog section for all the latest on your favorite vegan and cruelty-free beauty brands.
It’s worth noting that a “vegan” and a “cruelty-free” product can sometimes be confused with each other — because cruelty-free means the product was never tested on animals, but it could still contain animal-derived ingredients. This is why we recommend checking out our in-depth Cruelty-Free Brand Guide and this handy list of vegan ingredients to avoid. This will help you make the most informed decision when choosing your Vegan face care. Good luck!
