You don’t need to be vegan to buy vegan skincare products. You might just want to avoid putting crushed cochineals on your skin! Being vegan isn’t just about avoiding animal products in the food you eat. Veganism is a way of living your life without exploiting animal suffering or cruelty. This can be in the food you eat, the clothes you wear and the products you buy. Sometimes it can be a minefield checking labels and decoding what the ingredients actually are.
Non-vegan Ingredients to Avoid
- Cera Alba – Beeswax
- Carmine – Crushed cochineals
- Casein – Cows Milk
- Collagen – Animal tissue
- Glycerine – Animal Fat
- Keratin – Hair & Horn
- Lanolin – Sheep wool
- Shellac – Insects
- Squalene – Sharks Liver Oil
- Steric Acid – Fat derived from animals
- Tallow – Animal Fat
However, to make this more confusing many ingredients above can be vegan and are called by the same name?!! This is why we only sell vegan products from trusted suppliers. With that in mind here’s our top pick for vegan skincare products we use ourselves and love.
