Whether you’re a committed vegan or want to discover more natural products, there’s a wealth of plant-powered beauty brands to choose from, as Katie Wright reveals

Veganism has seen a huge surge over the last decade, with nearly 550,000 people now saying they follow a dairy and meat-free diet, compared with 150,000 in 2006, according to The Vegan Society. But when it comes to beauty products do you know what’s vegan-friendly? Beeswax and honey are obviously creature-derived, but did you know collagen and retinol often are too?

The good news is, there are plenty of vegan brands and products that are just as effective as their mainstream counterparts. 


1. Green Goodness

New from award-winning hair salon Gielly Green comes the Boutique Collection, a range of paraben and fragrance-free vegan products, including the Nourishing Repair Shampoo (£19) which uses sea buckthorn oil and Dead Sea minerals, and the Argan Ultime (£31), a 100% argan oil treatment for hair and body.

2. Natural Nourishment

Botanical brand Arbonne’s antioxidant-packed Arbonne Intelligence Nourishing Facial Oil (£59) can be used like a serum to boost your moisturising routine. The brand is also well-known for its high-quality vegan make-up. Try the new It’s All In The Eyes Shadow Duos (£32 each), for long-lasting everyday shades.

3. Cult and Cruelty-Free

Cult make-up fave Illamasqua.com has recently received PETA accreditation and stocks more than 300 vegan products, including their bestselling Skin Base Foundation (£32.50), and Precision Gel Liner in Infinity (£20).

4. Quench Your Skin’s Thirst

Dr Howard Murad brings decades of dermatology expertise to his eponymous brand, using natural and vegan products wherever possible. His innovative new Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence (£59.50) utilises Mexican blue agave leaf to help the skin retain moisture, plus a blend of plumping watermelon, apple and lentil extracts.

5. For Your Sensitive Side

Skincere is a 100% natural range of five skincare products that are soya, wheat, gluten, dairy and nut free. Ideal for sensitive skin, the Cream Cleanser (£19.99), gently removes make-up, while the coconut oil soothes and hydrates.

6. Unmask Your Potential

The Body Shop’s Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask (£15) is vegan, and uses the vitamin C-rich Brazilian acai fruit to revitalize your complexion.

7. Tinted Love

For a wide range of vegan-friendly hair dyes in natural shades try Tints of Nature, which makes more than 30 permanent dyes from platinum blonde to black. Tints Of Nature Soft Copper Blonde Permanent Hair Colour (£9.95).
