In celebration of Veganuary we want to share with you some of our favourite vegan products and brands. As more and more of us move towards a plantbased lifestle in all areas of our lives, there are more vegan options to try than ever before! However we are with you if you are thinking the choice can be overwhelming. So, we have rounded up the best options out there, that are not only vegan but also earth and people friendly!




1. Shampoo Cubes from Beauty Kubes

These little cubes are causing a revolution in zero waste, vegan hair care at the moment.  They cater for many different hair types including, normal-to-dry, oily, sensative and even a 2-in-1 shampoo body wash. Each kube is vegan friendly and 100% free from plastic packaging.

Inside the box, you will find 27 perfectly formed Kubes. Each provides enough gentle cleansing power for 1 wash as they are packed with natural, hair loving ingredients and gentle, biodegradable cleansing agents.

Their conditioner is also amazing!



2. Lavender and Rose Geranium Conditioner from Wild Sage + Co

Who knew broccoli seed oil was the secret to amazing natural conditioner? Wild Sage and Co did! Using their signature scent along with copious amounts of organic broccoli seed oil they have created this nourishing, preservative free conditioner.

Suitable for all hair types and you only need to use a very small amount. We love this product and would even go as far as to say that it’s the ULTIMATE vegan conditioner.


3. Urb Apothecary Bronzing Serum

Get the sun-kissed look all year round, with plant oils anchoring shimmery mica this is a great liquid bronzer. A little more expensive than some bronzers but a small amount goes a long way with this product. Dab across your cheekbones and brow for a sun-kissed vibe, even if it is winter. 

The base of natural ingredients provide natural nourishing benefits to the skin with jojoba oil and rosehip seed among others, making this serum a must have for your makeup bag.


4. Refillable Mascara from Zao

Another Zao product making our top 10 list this year is their incredibly popular Aloe Vera Mascara. It delivers intense definition and high volume to your lashes.  We love its clever structured lash-by-lash brush wand as well as its nourishing formula. The organic aloe vera, castor oil and shea butter ingredients care for your lashes whilst coating them from root to tip with intense colour. This is the most durable organic mascara out there.

Created without synthetic preservatives and with high quality raw materials, this mascara will leave your eyes and lashes fresh and full of volume.

Also a refillable product. By choosing to the refill option after your first purchase you save 90% of the plastic used in a conventional mascara as well as cost. The refills are half the price!


5. Green Clay and Kelp Face Mask from Wild Sage + Co

This green clay face mask from Wild Sage is an absolute dream for those with  oily, acne and blemish prone skin. We recommend using it 1-2 times a week to deeply cleanse and draw out toxins and impurities.

Why is it so effective? The green clay is highly absorbent, antiseptic and antimicrobial. It works by binding to and removing toxins, heavy metals and impurities from the pores. It is also packed full of nutrient rich minerals such as:

  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • phosphorus 

The mask green colour comes from its high iron content. The face mask magicians over at Wild Sage Co have combined the green clay with antioxidant rich sea kelp to give your skin a powerful nutrient boost. Kelp or 'Seaweed' is wonderful for the skin as it is vitamin A and vitamin E dense. It is also anti-inflammatory so great for soothing your breakouts.

Give your skin a treat this Veganuary.


6. Urb Apothecary Lip & Cheek Tint

This is the ultimate go-to beauty product as it is multipurpose! The all-in one lip & cheek tint blush adds natural colour to your lips and your cheeks, and it get's better. Not only does this tint look amazing but the natural ingredients give you moisturising benefits too, and when it comes ot the packaging, you can shop guilt free as it is fully compostable.


7. Jojoba Oil

If you’re looking to not only go vegan with your beauty routine this year but also simplify it then why not take it back to basics and choose a plant-based oil like jojoba that has so many uses.

Jojoba oil is a great all round oil for all skin types, and dont worry, it's not greasy! We use ours for everything from cleanser to hair conditioner. To find out more about which plant- based oils are right for your skin type download our free, Easy Zero Waste DIY Beauty Ebook.

9. Orange Jojoba Lip Balm by Scence

This amzing vegan lip balm uses sunflower seed wax instead of beeswax to create it's amazing texture. It also has a delicious scent of citrus which adds to the joy of using this balm.

Hydrating our lip is always important but especially in the winter months with the cold chill and risk of chapped lips. You'll say goodbye to sore chapped lips with this product as it works to heal and protect your lips.


10. Refillable Vegan Dental Floss

We absolutely adore this vegan dental floss at Acala HQ, it is possibly the cutest product. This natural dental floss is made with corn fibre, candelilla wax and peppermint essential oil. These natural ingredients mean that after you have brushed your teeth and used the floss you can simply pop your used floss into the compost!

Each floss clew is 30m in length, and comes in a plastic-free glass container with a metal top which allows you to easily cut the floss. What happens once you are done? Well you can purchase the refill and reuse the glass casing!
