Indian Vegan Beauty Brands That Deserve A Place On Your Shelf!

By  | 

While we’ve become more technology-obsessed in the last decade, we’ve also been moving a little bit more towards eco-consciousness. So that’s a win for you, me and the environment. Thankfully, sustainable fashion has slowly and steadily caught up, plastic has been banned in some states of India, and recycling is being promoted everywhere. Now we think it’s time to take a look at our vanity because makeup too is going vegan, natural and cruelty-free.

But with “all-natural” and “vegan” being the buzzwords, the question is – what is a vegan beauty product? Well, a vegan beauty product is anything that has not been tested on animals and is free from animal by-products such as milk, beeswax, egg, meat, fish and silk or dye from insects. So wait, our regular products have all this? Makes you rethink it, huh?

So if you’re ready to go down the vegan route (not just the environment, but also for your skin), listed below are some environmentally-conscious beauty products that deserve a place on your top shelf.

Aloe Veda

Taking inspiration from Ayurveda, Aloe Veda is an ethical and natural luxury wellness brand where the key ingredient is aloe vera. Their range of products includes bath and body, spa and massage, hair care and skincare. Their bestseller nourishing Aloe Vera gel has green tree extracts and tiny beads that nourish and lightly exfoliate your skin, all at the same time.

Enn’s Closet

Their tagline is “Your Natural Beauty Closet” and they offer a wide range of skincare and cosmetic products. If you love your weekly dose of masking, this is a brand you must try. Their Acnay Anti-Acne Face Mask, Illuminous Skin Lightening Face Mask and Litt Up- Indian Ubtan Glow Pack are some of their bestsellers. We specially like the play on words.

Just Herbs

As the name suggests, this brand offers a variety of herbal products. Just Herbs is India’s first crowd-sourced beauty brand and has a variety of products to take care of your skin and hair. If you are looking for organic face serums then look no further, The Gotukola Indian Ginseng Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum is one of Just Herb’s bestsellers.

Lotus Herbals

Founded back in 1993, Lotus is one of the better known herbal and vegan brands. The brand is endorsed by Huma Qureshi who is the face for the white glow range, Fatima Sana Shaikh who endorses the safe sun collection and Shilpa Shetty who endorses their Youthrx, anti-ageining range. Their bestseller products include Ecostay Kajal and Safe Sun sunscreen.


Plum is also a 100% vegan brand that has garnered a cult following. The brand is available on almost all popular e-commerce sites and boasts of recyclable packaging. Plum is particularly famous for its Green Tea Mattifying Toner and it’s long-wear kajal.

The Body Shop

Endorsed by actress Jacqueline Fernandez, The Body Shop has a wide range of bath and cosmetic products that are vegan and cruelty-free. Their Vitamin E Moisture Cream, Tea Tree Face Wash and Lip & Cheek Stain are products by the brand you must try, if you haven’t already!

Alanna Naturally Beautiful

The brand sources their ingredients from accredited vegan vendors around the world to make skin, eye and hair care products. Alanna is known for its luxurious packaging and while the pricing is on the higher side, the products do deliver. The anti-dandruff hair oil, deep face cleanser and chocolate lip balm are favourites.
