Thinking about going vegan? Why not start by choosing a vegan beauty brand for your personal care needs first!
Veganism is no longer just a celebrity-endorsed trend. The rising awareness of cruelty within the dairy industry is convincing more and more people to ditch dairy or animal-derived products altogether from the lifestyle.
Apart from your diet, the beauty products you use every day also contain animal-derived ingredients like beeswax, honey, lactic acid, carmine, gelatin, milk, lanolin etc.
Thankfully, a lot of beauty and makeup brands in India are catching up with the vegan movement. We now have several homegrown makeup and beauty brands that offer vegan products made with safe and organic ingredients.
Which Beauty Brands in India are Vegan?
Most clean beauty brands in India have more than a few vegan-friendly options since they are usually made with plant-based ingredients. In fact, you may have already used some of these vegan beauty products in your routine.
Yet, here is a list of 9 vegan beauty brand options in India that you can rely on for a conscious and cruelty-free personal care routine.
Best Vegan and Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands In India
1. Vaunt Skincare
Vaunt is a vegan skincare brand loved by minimalists in India. They have a small yet effective range of skincare products that help pamper and nourish your skin.
I recently tried their Vitamin C Water for my acne scars and fell in love. This vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand in India has everyday skincare essentials that will suit even people with sensitive skin.

Juicy Chemistry is a leading organic beauty brand in India that has its products certified by Ecocert Cosmos standards. They are usually the No. 1 choice for anyone looking for 100% clean and organic products to take care of their skin and hair.

Products you can try- Soaps, floral waters, cleansers, scrubs, face mask, facial oils, dusting powders, dry shampoo, aromatherapy oils etc.

And from time to time, Utkarshini also launches some limited edition formulations which are adored by her customers. So watch out for those!https://www.instagram.com/p/B20XMk5F3BE/
