What is vegan beauty?

Veganism is no longer just associated with food. The beauty and personal care industry is experiencing a huge rise in demand for vegan personal care products, or products that are not derived from or processed with animal products, materials, organisms, or enzymes. According to Mintel GNPD (2020), the number of products launches with vegan or no animal ingredient claims rose by 537% from 2015-2020, with colour cosmetics and skin care leading the way!
