Pure Beauty's Top 5 Vegan ProductsPhoto by Fuzzy Rescue

1st November marks Vegan Day, and more people than ever are adopting a vegan lifestyle, with the number of vegans here in the UK estimated to have risen to over 2 million in the last few years. As such, more companies than ever are producing products which cater to a vegan lifestyle, and it’s not just food products which are in high demand. Veganism encompasses so much more than what you eat; what you put ON your body needs to be cruelty free and free from animal products too, and you’d be surprised just how many products contain ingredients which are derived from animal sources. With this in mind, we’re showcasing five of our favourite vegan products:

Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant

A soothing, vegan exfoliating powder, Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant polishes the skin while preserving the moisture barrier for a younger-looking complexion. It contains oat and coconut, which when in contact with water, activate and release plant extracts containing high concentrations of beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) and alpha hydroxy acids . For a skin tone and texture that are more uniform, this helps polish away dead skin cells and remove dulling surface debris.

Elemis Superfood Cica Calm Booster

This vegan multivitamin booster from Elemis gives you the power to customise your skincare routine to meet your skin’s ever changing needs. Although powerful, it’s still suitable for sensitive skin as it contains cica, a herb traditionally used to help calm and soothe the skin. The lightweight oil-meets-water formula is easily absorbed and leaves a non-greasy finish, which improves the look of skin’s texture and minimises the appearance of pores.

Sienna X Gradual Clear Tan Water Mousse

You might be surprised to learn that there are a lot of animal-derived ingredients in some tanning products, from lanolin to collagen and even bee-derived ingredients such as beeswax. Sienna X Gradual Clear Tan Water Mousse is the new-gen way to tan. Building you up to a light-medium everyday glow with continued use over a few days, this vegan formulation contains no guide colour, meaning no development stain transfer.

This Works Sleep Plus Dream Body CBD

While many products are “cruelty free”, that phrase doesn’t actually mean that a product contains no animal derived ingredients, so they may still be unsuitable for vegans. This Works Sleep Plus Dream Body CBD is a hard-working, night-time body moisturiser with youth-boosting retinol, crambe and sweet almond oils plus vitamin E and 2% CBD. This targeted solution will leave you with smoother, younger-looking, skin with the added radiance of a good night’s sleep while also leaving you safe in the knowledge that the ingredients are 98% natural AND vegan-friendly.

Orly Breathable Love My Nails

Nail polish, you may be surprised to learn, is one of the biggest culprits for using animal derived ingredients. Guanine, or pearl essence, comes from fish, usually herring scales, and gives the nail polish the shimmery effect. Then there is carmine, which is commonly used as the red colour in nail polish, and is derived from the shells of the female cochineal insect.  Orly Breathable Love My Nails is a true red cream treatment and colour with advanced oxygen technology, as well as argan oil, pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin C to strengthen the nails, all using a vegan formula.
