Complete List of 100% Vegan Makeup & Skincare Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.


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 the brands on this list are all 100% vegan and intend to always be vegan! I hope with this list, you’ll get to discover from all the awesome and growing vegan makeup and beauty brands!

    Hihi! Thanks for this incredibly helpful list! Just letting you know Habit is also a great vegan nail polish brand!

    I love this list and I love your blog! Evolvh and Mad Hippie are two of my favorite brands, but I do know they aren’t 100% vegan, more like 98% vegan (I had the unpleasant experience of buying non-vegan products from them in the past). The Mad Hippie sunscreen is their only non-vegan product, because it does include beeswax. Likewise, Evolvh also uses beeswax in a couple of their styling products. I really hope they’ll consider reformulating in the future! Much love <3!

    Have you heard of the EWG? Products that are 100% vegan and cruelty free don’t necessarily mean they would get a low toxicity score from the EWG.

    Hey Vicky,

    I really, really love your list!! Just out of curiosity, are The Body Shop & Lush not included because they are not totally vegan?

      I also forgot – from this list (and through your own experience), what brands would you recommend overall in terms of value/results? I’m quite new to vegan beauty and want to look into what others feel is def worth getting 🙂

      Yes! Exactly!! =) Lush and The Body Shop are cruelty-free (not tested on animals) but since SOME of their products are not vegan, they’re not included on this list!

      Correct. On the website, The Body Shop says that they are 100% vegetarian, not vegan. The Lush as well uses some animal products, mainly milk or honey, in some of their products. Luckily with Lush is that they are pretty transparent as to what is vegan and what isn’t.

    i thank you a million times for this list! Sephora started selling STELLAR a brand that claims to be Vegan but I can’t find any mention of it in any vegan brand lists … I am wondering if you have heard of or from this brand.

      Jane Iredale is cruelty-free (not tested on animals) however not ALL of Jane Iredale products are considered vegan as they do use beeswax and carmine in some of their products. For a list of Jane Iredale vegan products, check out this post here: https://ethicalelephant.com/jane-iredale-vegan/

      I haven’t heard of the other companies you mentioned so I’ll look into them! Thanks for the suggestions!
