One thing we need to remember is that vegan isn’t synonymous with natural, organic, or even cruelty-free (in fact, vegan makeup can sometimes be even more chemically-processed). Vegan simply means that no animal-derived ingredients are formulated within the product. And while not too long ago, you would have been lucky to find any ethical beauty companies, now there are plenty of vegan products and brands to choose from! Instead of animal-based ingredients like lanolin and beeswax, products are now bursting with vivid vegan pigments and nourishing natural vitamins that are just as impressive as their non-vegan counterparts. Some of our favorite brands include Kat Von D, Comfort Zone, and Cover FX.
