The one thing I love about the beauty industry is how much it is constantly evolving. From the discovery of new ingredients to more eco-friendly packaging, brands are doing their bit to stand out. Another major breakthrough has been the rise of vegan beauty products. Products with this label contain no animal-derived ingredients in their formula i.e. no lanolin, beeswax, carmine or tallow. If you are keen to get your hands on some vegan products, here are a few that I’m looking forward to trying out.
