Vegan Skincare: 10 Vegan Face Creams We’re Loving Right Now
By Nikolina Ilic | Nov 4, 2021
Vegan alternatives have been gaining momentum in recent years as we’ve all become more aware of the impact our choices have on the planet. From reducing wastage to recycling used products, there are lots of ways we can all make better choices.
One industry in particular – a billion dollar one at that – that is slowly growing its vegan offering is the beauty industry. New and old brands are beginning to understand that consumers are becoming more aware of ingredients and manufacturing processes, and want more transparency with the brands they are buying from.
Previously considered not as good as their non-vegan counterparts, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to hear that vegan skincare can actually be just as powerful when it comes to tackling skin concerns such as dehydration, pigmentation and the signs of ageing.
Don’t believe us? Well, we put the best vegan formulas to the test and saw some brilliant results.
These are our standout vegan moisturisers:
Nude by Nature daily moisturising lotion, $39.95
A lightweight, hydrating lotion for every day of the week, Nude by Nature’s new face cream is formulated with active natural ingredients including Cloudberry, Shea Butter Esters and Vitamin E to help strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and protect it from environmental aggressors.
Ethique Solid face moisturiser for balanced to dry skin (65g), $45
The Perfector is a creamy unscented face moisturiser designed to nourish even the driest skin. Kokum butter, renowned for its concentration of essential fatty acids and protective barrier-forming abilities, is incorporated with nourishing jojoba and hydrating hyaluronic acid.
Add the home compostable tube for easier application and we’ve got a winner!
Edible beauty & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair – Night Creme, $62.00
An intensely hydrating night cream, Edible Beauty offer an awesome range of vegan skincare which boast ingredients like Shea, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Pomegranate. They’re also pregnancy safe and toxin free!
Sukin Purely Ageless Restorative Night Cream (120ml), $24.95
This rich night cream promotes skin elasticity and works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with Pure Ribose, White Hibiscus and Baobab to plump and firms skin, while Cocoa Butter and Macadamia Oil help to soften and soothe skin. Perfect for mature skin types.
The Base Collective Magnesium & Vitamin E Cream (100ml), $24.00
We love this cream because not only can you use it for your face – but all over. It works to relieve dry, stressed skin while relaxing tight, sore muscles thanks to the magnesium inside. It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and eczema-prone skin, and is a great addition to your bedtime routine.
Eco by Sonya Super Fruit Hydrator, $39.95
Moisturising but also incredibly light & non-comedogenic (so it won’t block your pores), Eco by Sonya’s Super Fruit Hydrator is the perfect, oil free hydrator for your face for that fresh, dewy feel.
INIKA Organic Phytofuse Renew Maca Root Day Cream, $79.00
A super light, fresh moisturiser, this day cream is a great option for those who love a thin, barely-there feeling cream with all the same hydrating benefits.
Biologi Luminosity Face Serum, $108.00
Biologi have hit the nail on the head with their range of serums, and this one is a standout. The 100% active, water-soluble serum uses Australian native Davidson plum to invigorate dull skin, improve complexion and clarify skin prone to oil and breakouts. Tick, tick, tick.
Synthesis Organics Spectrum Shield moisturiser, $62
Add SPF to a moisturiser and you have our attention – especially when it’s light, non-greasy and goes on without a white cast.
Trilogy Very Gentle Moisturising Cream, $44.95
This face cream is a great pick for sensitive skin – boasting antioxidant rich super oil maqui berry that helps target free radicals which can cause irritation, it also works incredibly against inflammation and leaves your skin feeling smooth and plump.
