A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

40+ Cruelty-Free and Vegan Nail Polish Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

There’s so many  vegan nail polish options on the market right now that I had to share this growing list with you all! I get super excited when I see this many (40+!) cruelty-free brands that all have vegan options!

In case you’re wondering what animal ingredients are lurking in our nail polish? The answer is fish scales (for that shimmery color) and some nail polish are made with shellac which is a by-product from the lac bug.

There’s absolutely no reason to continue purchasing nail polish from OPI, Essie, Revlon, and Sally Hansen when there’s 40+ cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands available!!

Vegan Nail Polish Brands

Below you will find an updated list of cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands:

Please note: I have confirmed the following brands mentioned below carry vegan nail polish but some brands may also have other product lines that are not all vegan like nail treatments, lipsticks, perfume, lotions. Brands that carry only vegan products is noted with (100% vegan).

      Hi Kayla,
      Thanks for the suggestions! I’m still waiting to hear back from Bio Seaweed and Bio Sculpture to confirm their animal testing policy. Once I can confirm their cruelty-free and vegan status, I’ll be sure to add them to this list!
      I know that Wet N Wild’s 1 Step WonderGel Nail Color is vegan but I’m not sure if all their other regular nail polish is vegan so I’ve avoided adding them to this list, just so I don’t confuse anyone.
