The Top Products For Veganuary Beauty

Vegan is the buzzword on everyone’s lips this month, as January 2020 has become known as ‘Veganuary’…

In a cause similar to Movember or Sober October, this means people worldwide are pledging to ditch meat and dairy for the entirety of the month, while also giving their beauty wardrobes a vegan overhaul.

More of us than ever are aware of what’s in our products and where those ingredients come from, and the clean beauty market is set to make around £18.7 billion by 2024. It’s no surprise, then, that brands are capitalising on the demand and some of them are pledging to become completely vegan in the next few years.

Vegan Beauty Products

Vegan products may connote imagery of thick, green creams or vegetable and fruit-laden skincare. In fact, to be classified vegan a product just needs to be ‘cruelty-free’ (i.e. not tested on animals) and mustn’t contain any animal-derived products. Many people don’t realise that a lot of their favourite products are already vegan.

Here’s our pick of some of the best vegan skincare and make-up on the market, and you may be pleasantly surprised which brands have made the cut:
