As November World Vegan Month is fast approaching, there has never been a more important time for beauty brands to ditch animal testing and welcome cruelty free and organic products. There’s a reason why we are all becoming more aware of what we are purchasing, and it isn’t just to reassure our guilty conscious. Vegan beauty brands are better suited for sensitive skin as there are fewer ingredients and most of which are natural or organic. They are also better for the environment as brands use recycled materials for packaging.
Glossy Pops are proud to be both vegan and cruelty free, meaning nothing is tested on animals and all ingredients have gone through extensive tests to ensure they are high quality suitable for everyone. We are an all-inclusive brand, so this only makes sense! As veganism is growing all around the world, we have gathered our top ten fave beauty brands that take pride in being vegan and cruelty free- meaning you feel that little bit better about treating yourself this month.
- Glossy Pops
The ultimate 2 in 1 lip gloss and lip balm duo for NYC. Choose from Sweet Yo’ Self and TGI Fruity for a clear balm and sweet-scented gloss or go for an iridescent glitter duo with Cosmic Waves. Here’s another secret; our Studio 54 and Chrome collection involving lipsticks and lip-liners/ lipsticks and glitter glosses will also be vegan and cruelty free! Watch this space as they will be dropping online at the end of the month.

The skin care brand and cosmetics company that has taken Instagram by storm is of course, Glossier. The dreamiest packaging, leaving your shelves looking the most Instagrammable. We love the milky-jelly cleansers, leaving our skin feeling clean and refreshed- but of course not using actual milk.
BYBI products are 100% natural, vegan and cruelty free, giving an extra bonus when the products and packaging are so good to our skin! The ‘babe balm’ tube is even biodegradable and made from sugarcane tubes.
It’s no surprise that Lush made it onto the list as the brnad has been making cruelty free products for years.
