Complete List of 100% Vegan Makeup & Skincare Brands

LAST UPDATED: AUGUST 15, 2017

A complete and updated list of 100% Vegan beauty brands! What does it mean to be on this list?

First, companies must agree to never test their products or ingredients on animals and also, brands included on this list must only offer vegan products! which means absolutely no animal ingredients or derivatives are used —in any of their products!

None of that, “all our products are vegan– with the exception of our animal hair makeup brushes” or “only a small number of our products contain carmine, lanolin, beeswax” bullsh*t! Nope, none of that here!

Why support these vegan brands?

If given the option, I’d rather buy from a company that is 100% vegan over a brand that says “90% of our products are vegan” for two simple reasons, (1) My support proves that consumers care and see value in a vegan brand and (2) it proves to the rest of the world that running a 100% vegan company is totally sustainable and profitable!

I often praise other beauty brands for offering a list of vegan products but these guys on this list started off as a 100% vegan brand and intend to always be vegan! These guys deserve some serious recognition and I hope with this list, you’ll be able to discover from all the awesome and growing vegan makeup and beauty brands!

      Heya Erin! Only some of Tarte products are considered vegan.

      You can find out which ones are vegan here: http://tartecosmetics.com/tarte-shop-vegan-cosmetics

      Since not all of Tarte products are vegan, I’m unable to include them to this list.

      This list only includes brands that carry 100% vegan products, hopefully one day Tarte will make ALL of their products vegan! =)

      Thankfully, it’s a growing list!! I verify each brand’s animal testing policy so it takes a bit of time to get on this list but I hope more and more companies will realize how important it is to keep animals out of our cosmetic products =)

    Hey, great list thank you so much for making it !

    I was just wondering if any of the brands listed here are owned by parent companies that are not vegan or cruelty-free ?

    thanks again (:

      Hey Lily!

      Nope! None of these brands on this list are owned by a parent company that tests on animals =)

    Great list, thank you!

    Is there a reason why Little Ondine isn’t on it? I was through there FAQ I found your website (since they referred to your guide on China’s Animal Testing Laws).

      oh wow, I had no idea they referenced my article on their website! haha I sent them an email to verify their animal testing policy. I’ll update this list if everything checks out, if not then I’ll reply back to this comment with an explanation! Thanks for letting me know =)

    Are morphe eyeshadow palettes vegan ?

    • Vicky Ly
      June 13, 2017

      Sadly No, most of their eyeshadow palettes contain lanolin and therefore are not vegan.

    I thought ELF and L.A. colors were vegan brands?

    • Vicky Ly
      May 29, 2017

      some of ELF’s old makeup brushes that are still available in stores uses animal hair and I haven’t received confirmation on whether their new skincare products are vegan.

      I also haven’t received any information about whether LA Colors products are vegan. I know that the brand is certified cruelty-free by PETA but they don’t have them listed as being a Vegan Company.

    Does this list also make the specification that they do not sell in countries requiring animal testing (such as China?)
    Also, why is LimeCrime not on this list? I’ve done extensive research on them and spoken to them numerous times (I did my senior project on them) and they meet all of the criteria and beyond.

    • Vicky Ly

      I’ve just added Lime Crime to this list! =)

      And if any of these brands sell in stores in Mainland China then I wouldn’t consider them to be cruelty-free or vegan. So none of these vegan brands are selling in countries that require animal testing!

    Thank you for this list! It’s super helpful 🙂

    I noticed that Manic Panic isn’t in your list of 100% vegan hair products. Do they really use animal by-product in their hair dyes? I find it disappointing if they do since they’ve always advertised their products as being vegan 🙁

    • Vicky Ly

      Hi Ann,
      I just received confirmation from Manic Panic and you don’t have to worry, all of their hair dyes are vegan! But unfortunately I can’t add them to this list because some of the other products they carry are not vegan like their lipsticks and other makeup products!

What do you think?
