Some people might think of vegans as fragile beings with washed out, grayish complexions. It's an old and stubborn stereotype... But you know better!
You know that turning vegan can actually do wonders for your skin, health and appearance. That tossing meat, dairy and all other animal products can turn you into a conscious goddess with glowy skin. We've seen it happen. Say hello to flawless, fresh-looking skin. And we've got all the plant-based care products you need to keep that beautiful body and face of yours nurtured, polished and moisturised.
The word has been out for a while: going vegan is great for the planet and great for you. Times are a-changing and people are becoming more and more aware of the alarming impact that the livestock and dairy industry have – as well as the horrible (and mostly hidden) animal suffering that comes with it and the unfair ways in which food is distributed in today's world. And for those who haven't been acting on the climate crisis yet (because it makes them a bit uncomfortable, you know), it's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the current state of the environment and all the ways in which it is changing and will continue to change.
Let's keep it real: animal testing and animal-derived ingredients don't belong in skincare, hair care nor other beauty products. Yet, in today's world our beauty industry is still widely using and abusing millions of rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice by running horrifying eye and skin tests on these little beings. Crazy, right?
Luckily, both new and established vegan makeup brands are becoming more and more popular and really earning their spot in the beauty industry by making beautiful high-quality products that won't break the bank.
Brows on fleek? Check! Whether you're into baking, contouring, matte lips or dewy skin – our selection of plant-based brand has the right makeup, hair and skin-care products to bring out the most striking version of you. 'Cause you totally #wokeuplikethis.
We're absolutely in love with the matte lipsticks from NABLA, for a luscious velvet lip. From a deep red to a sleek nude: this brand has got all the shades you've been longing for. Going out with the girls? Or in the mood to seduce? Add a pair of false lashes (QUEEN TARZI, GLAMLITE) and a bit of BARRY M eyeshadow to make those eyes pop. Ready to be extra? The vegan highlighter and lip gloss from OFRA COSMETICS will give you what you need. Look at you, va-va-voom!

Whether you identify as a gal, guy, trans, gender fluid, non-binary or queer: you have every right to put whatever the hell you want on that gorgeous face of yours. Like icons as Prince and Bowie already showed us in the 80s: cis males can totally rock the liquid eyeliner look. So whatever you're into, we offer an exclusive range of beauty products, including men's cosmetics.
Personal hygiene is important. And so is the environment. That's why we suggest you 'man up' and go plant-based. Or should we say: 'human up'? Yeah, that's better. Alright, back to self-care. If there's any shaving that needs to be done, then simply opt for one of our animal-friendly shaving cream.
Do you love wearing a more musky, 'masculine' perfume or fragrance (which doesn't contain castoreum)? Are you in dire need of an effective deodorant that can take a sweaty punch (or two) and doesn't have any beeswax or glycerin in it? Or are you forever on the look-out for vegan toothpaste and oral care products without microplastics and pork fat? No worries. We've selected the best vegan care products for you.
Leave a huge impression, not a huge carbon footprint. Our brands BUMI BARS, SMPL, SKON and AURORA DIONIS offer beautiful vegan skin-care ranges that are cruelty-free and sustainable.

Use your lazy Sunday to indulge in a lavish self-care session involving a scrub, face mask and a rich moisturising cream or lotion. We also got some great makeup cleansers and soap bars.
Use your sunscreen on a daily basis, no matter the season, to protect your skin from premature aging and scary diseases (trust us on this one).
