Celebrating Christmas as a vegan no longer means simply swapping turkey for tofu, and with the number of people choosing to follow a vegan lifestyle rising annually, it’s now easier than ever to shop for vegan beauty gifts at Christmas.
Skin care gifts for vegans
A dedicated vegan will follow a 100% plant-based lifestyle and will likely opt to avoid skin care that contains dairy products or animal and insect derivatives such as carmine, gelatine or beeswax.
To save time on scanning skin care labels for animal-derived ingredients, simply look for the Vegan Society logo and you can be sure that you are choosing a certified vegan beauty gift.

Beauty gifts for vegan teens
It is thought that 10% of British children aged eight to sixteen are vegani and if your teen is vegan you might find yourself stuck for stocking filler ideas.
Dairy-free chocolate makes a great vegan stocking filler but, with so many sweets consumed at Christmas, you might want to consider a healthier option such as vegan beauty products or everyday essentials.
Skin care makes a great gift for spot-prone vegan teens and our Oy! My Skin Goals gift set has been designed in support of the wildlife conservation charity Born Free.
The products in this skin-balancing skin care set is approved by the Vegan Society and contains a 3-step routine made with botanical spot-clearing actives including Green Tea, Willow Bark, Prebiotics and Tea Tree.
Cruelty-free bath & body gifts for vegans
When buying vegan beauty gifts, don’t confuse the term cruelty-free cosmetics with vegan-friendly. You might think that all vegan beauty products are cruelty free but that simply isn’t the case.
Vegan skin care: Will not contain any dairy or animal derived ingredients but may be sold in or produced by a country that permits animal testing.
Cruelty free skin care: May contain animal derivatives such as beeswax but to be cruelty free these ingredients and the product must not be tested on animals during any state of the manufacturing process.
Vegan and cruelty free skin care: Will not contain any animal derived ingredients and will not have been tested on animals during any state of the manufacturing process.
An easy way to know if a product is both cruelty free and vegan is to check the packaging for signs that the product has been approved by PETA, the Leaping Bunny Society or the Vegan Society.
