theBalm Cosmetics Vegan Product List 2015


theBalm Cosmetics offers a range of makeup products and Cruelty-free Kitty has verified that theBalm is indeed cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are ever tested on animals. I reached out to the company asking if they had a list of their products that were vegan-friendly and did not contain any animal ingredients or by-products.

*Update (Oct 6, 2016): I try my best to keep all my posts and lists up-to-date as possible and have been trying to get an updated vegan product list from theBalm for some time now. I just received a response from one of their reps explaining how they’re working on updating their vegan product list.

I’ve decided to keep this list up on my blog in the meantime but please be aware that some ingredients may have changed since this list was provided to me.

I know that some of theBalm products contain beeswax and carmine so those are two animal-derived ingredients you should be on the look-out for. If you have any information on an updated list, please contact me at info@ethicalelephant.com =)

Below is a list of theBalm cosmetics‘ vegan products:

    Hi there! Thx for this post, it is very helpful :”D I know this is a new product but I just wanna ask, do you have any updated info about their new product, Even Steven Foundation from The Balm, is it a vegan product? I have seen many reviews that this foundation is so damn cool. Thx for your response πŸ™‚

    Hey Vicky! Do you know what doesn’t make the other TheBalm mascaras vegan? I checked the ingredient list and I don’t see any difference. Thanks for you help!

    Just found this via google and am so, so glad! I have been using the tinted moisturiser for like 2 years now and I am so glad to hear it’s vegan. Been slowly switching out my old products to more natural ones but it’s nice to know that my current stuff is vegan in the mean time. (I’m the slowest vegan transition-er ever. I haven’t ate an animal product in years but my stuff? still transitioning ever so slowly.)

      Glad you found this helpful! I’m still waiting to hear back from theBalm for an updated list of their vegan products as I like to keep all of these lists up-to-date as possible! But whenever you’re in doubt about whether something is vegan… you can definitely email the company and ask! =) it can be a little time consuming but totally worth it in the end to know that the products you choose to buy don’t hurt animals =)

      Keep going girl! I was just like you.. where it was super easy for me to cut out animal products in my diet but switching all my beauty products out to cruelty-free/vegan alternatives took months.. even years! It’s definitely not a race.. just gotta do it at your own pace (ha! that rhymes!)

    So do their regular pallets like the Balm Voyage pallet have animal derived ingredients?

    All colours selection of Read My Lips are vegan products? Would like to try out their lipgloss!

      I believe so! This vegan list was provided by theBalm and I just checked out the ingredients for Read My Lips and carmine (the red pigment from crushed insects) wasn’t listed, and it wasn’t listed in the “may contain” section too.

      If you want to make sure, feel free to email them asking if a particular color is vegan.. they are usually very good with responding back! =)

    Are the Cindy-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer vegan too?

    • Vicky Ly
      February 9, 2016

      No, unfortunately Cindy-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer both include an ingredient called Carmine which is derived from crushed insects (More on carmine here: http://bit.ly/1XUc7iv)

      and therefore both products from theBalm are NOT vegan.

      Hope that helps, Kim =)

    This is a great post! Some of my favorites from theBalm are the Mary-Lou Manizer and Put a Lid On It, and I actually just did a review of the INSTAIN Blushes over on my blog. Thanks for doing this research!
