If you’re trying to live a clean and healthy life, what you eat is important, but so is what you’re putting on your body. This is especially important if you’re a vegan, as you might be surprised to find that many beauty products contain animal-based ingredients or are tested on animals. Because living a vegan lifestyle goes beyond just what you eat, you’ll want to make sure you’re using products that are free of any unwanted ingredients. Here are 15 of our favorite vegan beauty products, from eyeshadow to perfume to hair color.
