What Is Vegan Skincare?

Vegan skincare means using makeup and beauty products formulated with ingredients that are free from animal derivatives or by products sourced from animals. However, be careful when selecting products, as vegan does not mean the same thing as cruelty-free. Cruelty-free products are products that are not tested on animals and may carry a cruelty free certification, their ingredients however may still be formulated with animal derived ingredients.

Eminence is proud to offer a selection of vegan friendly skincare products with natural, organic and 100% cruelty free ingredients. For over 10 years Eminence has been certified with the Leaping Bunny Program – known across the globe for its cruelty-free standards.

What Are the Benefits of Using Vegan Skincare?

Usually made from natural, botanical and even organic ingredients, vegan skincare products are usually gentler on the skin. If you have a more sensitive skin type that irritates easily or may be prone to allergic reactions, then vegan skincare products may offer a more beneficial alternative. Vegan skincare ingredients are usually less irritating and often soothe sensitive skin rather than aggravate it.


Where Do I Start with A Vegan Skincare Routine?

1. Cleanser

The first step to get you started in your skincare journey is a cleanser. Cleanse your skin with a vegan cleanser ideally in the morning and at night to remove impurities and better prep your skin for the subsequent products.

Our top picks are:


2. Toner

Toners are a crucial step before moisturising and following your cleanser. Toners remove any lingering impurities and balance the natural pH of your skin.

Our top picks are:


3. Serum, Concentrate or Facial Oils

Using a serum, facial oil or concentrate is a key step in any vegan skincare routine as they target specific skin concerns and conditions by penetrating deeply into the skin to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients. With an option to use alone or mix or layer more than one oil, concentrate or serum to give richer, deeper results. Apply from the lightest texture to the richest.

Our top picks are:


4. Moisturiser

Keep your skin soft and protected with an organic vegan moisturiser to support the skin’s natural lipid barrier and keep skin smooth and refreshed. You can apply your daytime moisturiser in the morning and also at night if you prefer a lighter option at night as night creams tend to be a little richer in texture.
