Looking for cruelty free skincare with no animal derivatives? Most of the brands that we stock offer at least one if not more vegan skincare products. These cleansers, toners and moisturisers are usually recognisable by the ‘vegan’ logo. But there are some brands (e.g. Algaran) whose products don’t bear said logo but are still vegan friendly and cruelty free. Some of these brands include Irish brands Algaran, Kinvara & Holos to name but a few. Kinvara’s skincare range consists of only 4 products all of which are vegan. Whereas Algaran has a much wider range of products, some of which are vegan but not all.
Vegan washes, lotions and body brushes can all be found at your local Evergreen store with more brands than ever sporting the vegan logo. Opal London’s wooden bristle body brushes are made with 100% natural materials and their wash cloths are 100% cotton, while brands such as Faith In Nature, Jason and Avalon Organics boast wide ranges of vegan body washes and lotions.
Vegan shampoos and conditioners are available from most of the aforementioned brands and vegan hair colours are also available in-store. You can get semi-permanent henna colours in creams and powders from Surya Brasil and permanent vegan colours are available from Herbatint. If you are looking for hair masks and leave in conditioners, look no further than Surya Brasil (vegan mask) and Giovanni who offer a range of vegan, natural leave in conditioners.
