Create The Looks You Want With
Vegan Beauty Products
The big difference between vegan beauty products and other products is the animal ingredients. They do not necessarily perform any better or worse and they may or may not contain the most natural or safest ingredients but for someone who does not want any animals harmed for their beauty products it is the only way to go.
You would shop for products that do not contain animal ingredients the same way you shop for any other safe, natural skin care by knowing about the ingredients that are used. You will just have additional items to consider.
Animal ingredients are quite common in all of our personal care products. Beeswax, lanolin and collagen and some color additives are a few of the more commonly used ingredients in skincare and cosmetics. Unless you know which ingredients come from animals it is not always easy to tell. See
animal ingredients. for more info
Vegan certification makes it easier to find companies that don't
use animal ingredients additionally look for companies like Aubrey Organics that clearly let you know which products
are vegan and which aren't. The term cruelty free may also be used but this is something I would check up on to make sure that they are referring to animal ingredients and not animal testing.
Checklist For Shopping For Any Product
Finding the best skincare whether it's vegan or not is always important. You should expect your products to be:
Natural, organic if possible.
Without animal testing.
Without animal ingredients.
Made by companies who are environmentally responsible.
Always a plus, some ingredients sourced fair trade.
The companies below are a few that can claim to meet most if not all of these requirements. They have found that you don't need to use animal ingredients to work well and help you look your best.

What About At The Salon?
I know whenever I go to the salon I am told about all the wonderful products they use. It seems salon quality products are different somehow. Presumably better. The ones I have seen have not contained the safest ingredients but that and an interest in animal friendly products is starting to change. It's good to see that stylists now have more natural options available to them and for us who buy their products from the salon.
The companies below provide more natural, vegan products. Ask your stylist about them. They can be ordered through Planet Beauty:
