This week we asked the community for their tips on where to find the best vegan skincare. We wanted to know which were their favourite brands, ranges, and products. The community has now responded and we have put together a shortlist of some amazing brands that are either 100% vegan or have products in their range that are 100% vegan. So here are the brands and their wonderful vegan products.
Sukin (100% vegan range)
Born in 2007, Sukin has always been at the forefront of the health & wellness movement, as people were looking for ways to live in a cleaner, more natural, and sustainable way. The brand is Australian-made, vegan, cruelty-free, carbon-neutral, and uses recyclable packaging!
Deciem – The Ordinary
(100% vegan range)
DECIEM was founded in 2013 by “the beauty world’s most exciting disrupter”, Brandon Truaxe. During a four-month co-op at a skincare lab, he became angry at the lack of passion, transparency, or insight when beauty products were being developed. After selling his first software company, many years later, Brandon’s frustration at the beauty industry remained and he set off to make a change in the beauty business. That change is DECIEM and we’re working really hard to continue Brandon’s vision for a better world of beauty.
