Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
_
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options πŸ’œ

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence

Complete List of 100% Vegan Makeup & Skincare Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

LAST UPDATED: JUNE 8, 2019

A complete and updated list of 100% Vegan beauty brands!

What does it mean to be on this Vegan list?

First, companies must agree to never test their products or ingredients on animals and that includes refraining from selling their products in mainland China where compulsory animal testing is required for all imported cosmetics. Secondly, brands included on this list must only offer vegan products! Which means absolutely no animal ingredients or by-products are used —in any of their products!

Some cruelty-free brands make claims that none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals and that most of their products are vegan with a few exceptions of products that contain beeswax, honey, or animal hair in their makeup brushes.

Don’t get me wrong – it’s great they have vegan options, but there are some other brands that make sure 100% of their products are entirely vegan. These 100% vegan beauty brands are the ones that we want to especially highlight in this list.

Why support these Vegan brands?

If given the option, I’d rather buy from a company that is 100% vegan over a brand claiming, “90% of our products are vegan” and that’s because (1) My support proves that consumers care and see value in an all-vegan company 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!

100% Vegan Makeup

Some makeup brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal products found in makeup include carmine, beeswax, pearl powder, animal-derived fatty acids, and animal hair used for makeup brushes. The following vegan makeup brands do not test on animals and do not use any animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products.


100% Vegan Skincare Brands

Some skincare brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some animal products commonly found in skincare include lanolin, beeswax, royal jelly, honey, collagen, silk amino acids, snail mucin, milk-derivatives, and squalene from fish liver oil.

Below is a list of vegan skincare brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products. Brands listed here offer a range of skincare products for face & body, personal care products, and bath & body care products.


100% Vegan Hair Care Brands

Some hair care brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal ingredients found in hair care products include keratin, biotin and silk amino acids.

Below is a list of vegan hair care brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products. Brands listed here offer a range of hair products from shampoo, conditioners, hair treatments, styling products, hair dye, and hair accessories.


100% Vegan Nail Polish Brands

Some nail polish brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal ingredients found in nail polish and nail care products include guanine, shellac, pearl-derivatives, keratin, and biotin.

Below is a list of nail polish brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products.


100% Vegan Brushes & Tools

Some makeup brush brands claim to be “cruelty-free” yet use natural animal hair bristles for their brushes. Although companies claim this process is done in a cruelty-free manner and the animals are not harmed, we do not support the practice of taking an animals’ fur in order to make makeup brushes. Below is a list of vegan makeup brush brands that agree with us by only offering makeup brushes made with synthetic bristles.


100% Vegan Beauty Boxes

Discover new cruelty-free and vegan beauty products by subscribing to one of the following monthly or quarterly beauty boxes! Some cruelty-free beauty boxes only include products from brands that don’t test on animals and are not always vegan. However, this list of vegan beauty boxes makes sure to only and always include products that are both not tested on animals and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products!


100% Vegan Fragrance Brands

The following vegan fragrance brands do not test on animals and do not use any animal-derived ingredients or by-products in their perfumes or any of their other products.

    This was definately helpful! Im a massive fan of vegan products that are cruelty-free! Im currently ordering the nightcream by Virginic as they happen to be a booming organic company apparently. Definately worth checking them out if youre a fan of one or two of those brands! πŸ™‚

    Hi Vicky,
    Can you look into the brand of “BeautyCounter” and let me know if it is vegan and animal cruelty free?
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi! I thought Zoya was vegan?

    • Vicky Ly
      September 24, 2018

      Hi Patricia,
      Zoya’s nail polish are 100% vegan but I believe some of their lipsticks contain beeswax or carmine so I’m unable to list them as being a 100% vegan brand.

    Are Juice Beauty and Cover FX vegan and cruelty free?

    • Lulu
      August 30, 2018

      Oh, I just saw that Juice Beauty uses beeswax in some products. Cover FX is vegan and cruelty free according to their site!

        August 31, 2018

        Hey Lulu,
        You’re correct about Juice Beauty.. they don’t test on animals but they do have a small number of products that contain beeswax.

        Thank you for letting me know that COVER FX is now 100% vegan! I’ll add them to the list. They previously had 2 products that weren’t considered vegan but I’m happy to see that they have discontinued those products now =) YAY.
