If you’re thinking about embracing a vegan lifestyle, you’re not alone. There are about 500,000 other Australians who chose to eat vegan products, which shows the lifestyle is only growing in popularity.
Of course, veganism is about more than just your diet – it’s also about the items you chose to stock in your home and use on your body, like beauty products. There’s a reason so many people in Australia have decided to switch to a vegan skincare regime. All vegan beauty products are produced without causing harm to animals – meaning they don’t contain animal ingredients or by-products like lanolin, beeswax or uric acid from cows. Instead, they rely on plant-derived ingredients such as rosehip oil, coconut oil and soybean extract.
Vegan beauty can also benefit your health. When you think about the fact that synthetic ingredients are absorbed into your skin, it’s worth considering a switch to plant-based beauty products that are full of natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

We love a good double cleanse, which involves starting your skincare routine with a cleansing oil before moving on to a foam cleanser. It’s an especially good idea in the evening, when you need to remove stubborn dirt and makeup from your face. This lightweight oil is a great vegan option because of its botanical ingredients, which are gentle on the skin and don't strip away your essential oils.
This natural cleanser is enriched with native Australian Kakadu plum extract to improve your skin tone and goji berries to protect your skin from free radicals. We love it because it makes your skin instantly hydrated and it can help reduce mild acne.
Keep your skin supple and radiant with this serum, which is full of antioxidants like argan oil, and liquorice extract to even out your skin tone.
Like our Refreshing Foaming Cleanser, this vegan moisturiser contains fruit botanicals that boost the vitamin C in your skin. This improves your skin's elasticity and minimises pesky wrinkles.
Detoxifying your face once or twice a week with activated charcoal is a must! This magical skincare ingredient helps flush impurities like dirt and bacteria out of your skin, leaving you with a clearer complexion as a result. This mask also contains sweet almond oil to smooth and soften your skin.
Our soothing body wash is sulphate-free, and instead uses botanicals like rosehip oil and jojoba oil to nourish and hydrate your skin. It's also infused with calming lavender, chamomile, orange and sandalwood scents, so it’s sure to put you in a zen mood before you face the day ahead.
With summer here, it's essential to carry a hydrating hand cream with you wherever you go so that you can protect your hands from harsh, drying weather conditions. We’re fond of this vegan product because it includes hemp seed oil and grapeseed oil, which lock in moisture and prevent unwelcome age spots.
