When it comes to the copious types of skin care brands that are mission backed, vegan skin care remains top of mind for a variety of reasons. However, just like other types of natural skin care products, vegan skin care brands have varying standards. Some natural skin care brands will still use animal by products such as honey for example.
While other brands refuse to include honey or anything that comes from bees including propolis, bees wax, and bee pollen.
While the majority of brands we carry here at Pretty Well Beauty are vegan. We do have a couple of brands that use ethically sourced honey from bees. We obviously want to be as transparent as possible so that you can make the best decisions for yourself and your personal needs.
Here we have compiled a list of our favorite vegan skin care products from brands we love. We chose these products not only because of their high level of clean and sustainable ingredients, but because they perform well and deliver on their promise. It’s our mission to always offer products that deliver on their promises and these are certainly no exception.
Vegan skin care is not only something we care about, but goes beyond the surface and mimics our values overall. Animals are our responsibility and it is our job to protect them as much as possible. So starting a skin care routine using vegan skin care products is a great and easy step to begin a more conscientious lifestyle.
We have broken down our favorites into different categories. Skin care, Body care, Hair care, and Makeup. You can start small and try incorporating a couple things at a time replacing items as they run out. Or you can go cold turkey like some people do when making a lifestyle change. Whatever you decide, is entirely up to you and what you feel comfortable with.
