Complete List of 100% Vegan Makeup & Skincare Brands

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!

    Do you have a list of cleaning products you would recommend?

    I just wanted to make you aware, that the some ads that are shown in your website are from maybelline. As this is a cruelty free blog, I though you would want cruelty free brands in your ads.

      Hi Pao, Thanks for the comment. Some of the ads on my website are displayed using Google Adsense and I don’t have control over the ads that users see, similar to the ads that show before you watch a Youtube video. It’s based off of each users browser history so although I try my best to flag and remove ads from non-cruelty-free companies from showing up on my website, I see something different from what you and others will see.

      So you may have visited a website similar to Maybelline and Google Adsense thought you might be interested in seeing a similar ad.

      I am working on transitioning my website so that I don’t have to use Google Adsense and therefore no one will have to see an ad from a non-cruelty-free company on my site again! But it’s unfortunately taking me some time to get there.

      It’s just me running the site so the small amount I make from Google Adsense helps to cover the costs of maintaining and keeping my website up and running, otherwise this would be coming out of my own pocket and I wouldn’t be able to personally afford it.

      I appreciate your feedback and will take it into account as I’m working on transitioning off of display ads!

    Hi Vicky,

    Have you researched into any MLM companies? Just wondering why you don’t have Arbonne listed on your 100% Vegan brand list? They are certified vegan AND cruelty free!

      Hi Ashley,
      Great question.. I get asked this a lot and so I’m glad I get to address it here! =)
      I don’t mention MLM companies, even if they are cruelty-free and vegan, because I get flooded and overwhelmed with comments and spams from some of their reps. I know most of the reps aren’t like that but I haven’t had a good experience in the past so I’ve chosen not to mention any type of MLM companies on my blog to avoid this.

    hey Vicky, just heard about a brand called Tiger and Taupe, they only have a few lipsticks but still really cute and vegan/cruelty free.
    just thought I’d let you know since they aren’t on this list 🙂 <3

    Thank you so much for this list 😍 🙏🏼 You are amazing! When you say 100% vegan do you also mean NOT owned by a non-cruelty free parent company?
