In today’s fast-paced beauty industry, women are growing more and more aware of the products they are using. Alongside the horde of new environmentally-friendly brands, comes another phenomenon that is gaining momentum: the rise of vegan products. Many brands, both new and established, are responding to a higher demand for natural products, free of animal-based ingredients yet still of great quality. We have compiled a list of our favourite vegan and absolutely cruelty-free brands, which we believe are worth trying.
Chantecaille: widely recognized as a luxury skincare brand within the industry, Chantecaille do not test their products on animals and aim to raise of awareness of environmental issues. They use natural botanicals to create fantastic products, and therefore prove just how efficient vegan products are.
