There are some amazing vegan cosmetic products available here in the UK. A wide variety of these are available online and hopefully I’ll be covering some of these in other posts, but for now I’d just like to focus on vegan products available in actual brick and mortar shops on the high street. This is not a comprehensive list and it will be updated frequently (I’m always trying new brands, especially UK based companies), but here are just a few of my favourites.
bold = companies with some or all products made in the UK, based on information provided on each website. Where no information was found, or no products are made in the UK, text is in italics only.
Amie – I use their matte finish moisturiser on days when I don’t want something too heavy. Available at Waitrose, John Lewis and occasionally at Boots.
B. – Clearly labelled vegetarian or vegan. Available at Superdrug
