Essential guide to vegan beauty products

Looking and feeling good needn’t compromise your principles. You can find an extensive range of certified vegan beauty products at Green People, including vegan skin care, body care and vegan hair care. 

All Green People products are natural, vegetarian, and certified cruelty-free by Peta. The majority are also certified vegan by the Vegan Society. Green People is totally committed to creating cruelty-free beauty products and has never tested any product or ingredient on animals.

Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or simply looking for pure, certified organic cosmetics, you can find everything you need for a complete beauty regime, from top to toe.

We don't gloss over our ingredients

At Green People we take immense pride in our organic formulations, so we put every single ingredient on the product pages of our website.

Some brands choose to only disclose a select few ingredients on their websites, but we give you the full picture of what is going on your skin; we think that’s only fair, it’s your skin after all.

Vegan skin care

Green People vegan skin care is organic, natural and gentle on ultra-sensitive skin. Created without harsh chemicals such as drying alcohol, mineral oil and parabens, our vegan beauty products deliver powerful plant-based goodness to balance, soothe and hydrate your skin.

Our range of cruelty-free beauty products includes vegan moisturisers, serums, cleansers and eye care products, which are all free from animal derived ingredients such as beeswax and non-vegetable glycerine.

Vegan sunscreen

Some sun lotions may contain Beeswax and ingredients derived from whey, so cannot be considered vegan. Our natural Sun Lotion SPF15 with Tan Accelerator uses Berry Wax instead of Beeswax and is suitable for vegans.

This organic sunscreen provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection and contains a natural tan accelerator derived from Carob, to help you tan 25% faster. Made without pore-blocking ingredients such as synthetic water-proofing chemicals, our vegan sunscreen is suitable for those prone to eczema and prickly heat.

Extra UV protection is provided by powerful natural antioxidants from Edelweiss, Green Tea and Avocado, which help to fight free radical damage caused by sun exposure. Not only do these help to protect your skin against sun damage, they also help to prevent wrinkles, age spots and loss of skin elasticity.

Vegan deodorants & shower gel

Some high street body care products may contain animal derived ingredients such as animal fats, gelatine and carmine (a red dye extracted from the cochineal beetle).

Our vegan shower gels, body lotions and vegan deodorants are naturally nourishing and contain powerful plant actives to bring your skin back into balance, naturally.

Some of our best-selling products are our vegan deodorants, which have a powerful 3-way action against bacteria and odour without blocking your pores.

Our certified organic deodorants are highly effective, while being suitable for even the most sensitive skin and we never use pore-clogging aluminium or other harsh chemicals.

Vegan shampoos and conditioners

While we all want glossy, bouncy hair, some hair care products may contain animal-derived ingredients and are therefore not suitable for vegans. 

Green People vegan shampoos and conditioners are all suitable for sensitive scalps and packed with nourishing natural plant actives. Whatever your hair type, whether it’s normal, oily, damaged, dry, or anything in between, there’s something in our range of organic hair care products that caters to you.
