The vegan beauty industry is now more mainstream than niche, proving it’s possible to have products that are not only effective but also ethical.
Here are six of our favourite vegan beauty products right now for lips, nails and everything in between. Go ahead, treat yourself!
1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Combining the longevity of a lipstick, with the application of a gloss, OCC Lip Tars should be a must-have in every beauty bag. The combined infusion of hemp oil, peppermint oil and vitamin E mean they’re super comfortable on the lips, but do not sacrifice in pigment. With an array of hues to choose, you’ll have a hard time picking just one.

Very few hair care companies can say all of their products meet 100 per cent vegan requirements, are free of alcohol, paraben, sulfates and work beautifully as well. Well, Yarok can certainly say all of the above. This leave-in conditioner is particularly a winner, and is designed to seal split ends, tame frizz, add shine and protect from further damage. You’ll love it as much as we do!
