Going vegan isn't just about diet, it's a lifestyle change, which is steadily gaining popularity across the globe but what actually makes a product vegan? 

Like vegan food; vegan beauty and fragrance products do not contain animal derived ingredients or by-products. Some examples of non-vegan products can include beeswax, silk proteins and honey. Certain fragrances can also contain some non-vegan ingredients. For a product to be vegan certified it must meet certain criteria. All our products included in our vegan and organic section have been vegan certified. 

Why choose vegan beauty products and fragrances?

More often than not; vegan beauty products are more gentle to skin due to their naturally derived ingredients which makes them perfect for sensitive skin or delicate areas. Vegan products are also more eco-friendly and kinder to the planet which is becoming ever-more important in today's society. 

Here's a few of The Fragrance Counter's Vegan beauty and fragrance products for a bit of inspiration...
