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:

Mary-Lou Manizer (Highlighter, Shadow & Primer)
Sexy Mama (Anti Shine Translucent Powder)
Bahama Mama (Bronzer)
Read My Lips (Lip Glosses)
What’s Your Type? (Mascaras)
Schwing (Eyeliner)
INSTAIN (blushes)
balmShelter (tinted moisturizer)
Put a Lid On It (eyeshadow primer)
Stainiac (Lip & Cheek stain)

I'm Vicky! I've been a vegan for 4 years and want to do my small part in making the world a kinder place. When I'm not on my laptop creating or designing, I enjoy running, vegan chocolate chip cookies + ice cream, and the occasional Simpsons marathon.

    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.)

    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!

    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!
