Veganism is on the rise, having seen a 500% increase in veganism since 2014, more and more people are adopting a plant-based lifestyle each year. This has caused the vegan beauty market to boom, with a huge selection of animal-free products available. With World Vegan Day coming up on the 1st November, we’ve made a list of the must-have vegan products on SkinStore.

What Is Veganism?

Veganism is a way of living that does not incorporate any animal products in to the diet or lifestyle – including beauty products.

This includes common ingredients, such as:

  • Honey
  • Beeswax
  • Lanoin
  • Collagen
  • Carmine
  • Cholesterol
  • Gelatin
  • Squalene
  • Keratin

What Is World Vegan Day?

World vegan day is an annual event used to raise awareness of veganism. Celebrated on the 1st November each year, it’s used as a day to highlight the benefits and reasoning behind a plant-based lifestyle, including the health benefits, environmental benefits and how it benefits the animals.

Our Favorite Vegan Products

The Face Mask

The AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask is rich in energizing minerals and purifying mud which have come directly from the Dead Sea. This vegan mask works to deeply cleanse through the surface skin cells to draw out imperfections and impurities, giving your skin a radiant, silky-smooth finish.

Simply apply an even layer over your face and leave it to work its magic for two minutes.

The Eye Treatment

The Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Eye Treatment is our favorite vegan eye treatment. The blend of Wild Rose Oil, Yeast, Ruscus and HorseChestnutExtracts work to brighten dark circles and reduce the appearance of under eye wrinkles.

You’ll be left with a truly brighter, more youthful looking under-eye area.
