Vegan and Organic Makeup Companies

For those who concerned with choosing vegan, this is a list of companies that have a strictly vegan range.

Please find my list of companies that use beeswax here. My list of companies that use carmine can be found here.

This list only includes their cosmetics range, as some of these companies also offer skincare. I will also mention the products with ingredients that may be a concern.

Red Apple Lipstick

They are vegan however some products contain synthetic beeswax, which is made from petroleum based ingredients. The website is a little difficult to follow, as there are so many products. From what I can gather there are 5 formulas.

The ‘X-series’ formula is free from synthetic beeswax but contains BIS Diglyceryl polyacyladipate 2, which adipic acid is a major component and can be a mild skin irritant and mildly toxic.

The ‘Instant Colour’, ‘Original’ and ‘Summer Passion’ formulas contain synthetic beeswax.

The ‘Satin’ formula is free from both these ingredients.

Lotus Wei infused Lip Gloss and the Invigorating Lip Gloss contains Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle Extract), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850) and Red 7 Lake (CI 15850).
