Vegan Beauty with Boots

‘Going vegan’ is no longer just about the contents of your fridge – it’s about what’s in your make-up bag, too. Vegan beauty is on the rise, and it’s never been bigger, better, brighter or bolder. Gone are the days when you were limited in terms of beauty products. Now there are a whole host of brands bringing the buzz with vibrant colours, skin-friendly formulations and exciting new offerings in make-up, haircare and skincare.

What does vegan-friendly mean?

Vegan-friendly means something is free of all animal products and animal by-products such as beeswax, milk substance, egg whites and honey. Cruelty-free means that neither the products nor their ingredients have been tested on animals at any point in the development process. Something that is vegan is not necessarily cruelty-free, although many products are both.

Check out these great brands and discover more about their vegan-friendly products and values.
