A plant-based lifestyle extends beyond what you eat. While you (hopefully!) don’t eat face cream, it’s still important to choose a vegan face cream! Even so-called ‘cruelty-free’ face creams often contain animal-derived products. We think that needs to end. We bring you an awesome range of vegan face creams to make selecting one easier.
Plant-based ingredients such as ginger, aloe vera, and mint have been used for centuries due to their healing properties. We are harnessing the power of plants for the present and the future. Join the skincare revolution!
What is vegan face cream?
For a face cream to be classed as vegan, it cannot contain any ingredients derived from an animal. Some face creams contain ingredients such as collagen, beeswax, honey, keratin, milk protein, elastin, estrogen, glucosamine, lanolin, and silk protein. That’s a lot of animal-derived products! For this reason, it can be difficult to find a suitable plant-based face cream, if you’re leading a vegan lifestyle.
We all know how annoying it can be to stand in the supermarket or drugstore reading the extensive ingredients list on the back of products! It’s time-consuming and easy to miss something. To make things easier for you, we have selected an awesome range of the best vegan face cream. Our plant-based face cream products are cruelty-free and natural. None of the face creams we sell contain animal-derived products so you can rest assured you won’t receive any unwanted surprises.
Ethical beauty is on the rise and PlantX is at the forefront of this movement. Many vegans don’t realize the quantity of animal-derived products that can be found in skincare. We are here to spread the word, and offer a natural, plant-conscious, and ethical alternative! Read on to find out more about the best vegan face cream.
What are the benefits of using organic face cream?
Our skin is our largest living organ and around 60% of what we apply to our skin gets absorbed into the bloodstream. Non-organic face cream often contains harmful chemicals that do your skin damage in the long run. Studies have shown that synthetic chemicals may eventually contribute to health problems such as skin irritation and hormone imbalance with continued use.
Our organic face creams are made with natural products derived from plants and which are grown without the use of nasty pesticides, fertilizers, and GMOs. Use our organic face cream and your body won’t be absorbing any synthetic chemicals. This means that the production of organic face cream is kinder to the planet, better for wildlife, and produces less carbon dioxide and dangerous waste. Choosing organic face cream will help minimize our environmental impact.
Organic face cream is kinder to our body and will properly nourish, soothe and moisturize the delicate skin on your face. If you’re living a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, choosing organic and natural skin care should be one of your priorities. Trust us, it’s a better choice for everyone!
Is vegan face cream good for all skin types?
We sell a brilliant range of vegan face creams to suit all skin types. Different vegan face creams will be better for different skin types. For oily skin, ingredients such as aloe vera and vitamin C can be beneficial. For dry skin, plant butters and oils are a great choice. For a full breakdown of the ingredients in each vegan face cream product, check the list on the product’s page or packaging.
Those with sensitive skin may find vegan face cream offers a gentle alternative to face creams that contain chemicals. Vegan face cream is packed full of vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties to naturally support your skin. In general, vegan face cream brings you more nutrients than animal-derived and synthetic face creams.
Of course, just because our face cream is vegan doesn’t mean it’s not possible to cause an adverse reaction on very rare occasions. Everyone’s skin is different and if you feel that a specific vegan face cream is irritating your skin, please discontinue use. If in doubt, consult a dermatologist to find the vegan face cream that is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do face creams contain argan oil?
Argan oil is a plant oil that’s extracted from the kernels of the argan tree. It’s commonly used for cosmetic purposes. Some of our vegan face creams contain argan oil and some do not. If you are looking for one with argan oil, try Acure’s Brightening Day Cream and Brightening Night Cream. Argan oil is rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants that may help you achieve a smoother and more youthful complexion. Check the ingredients list on a vegan face wash product’s page or packaging for a full list of ingredients.
Which vegan face cream is waterproof?
Our vegan face cream is generally not considered waterproof. This is because the face and sun creams that claim to be waterproof use a whole range of nasty chemicals in order to make this possible. That’s something we want to avoid so we select natural face cream that protects your skin rather than harms it. Some of our vegan face creams are oil-based and some are water-based. Oil-based face creams will fare better in water, but it is still advised to apply more after exiting the pool or sea and showering. This makes sure the moisture is locked in.
Which face cream can protect you from the sun?
For sun protection, you need to choose a face cream that contains SPF (sun protection factor). Whilst many of our vegan face creams do not contain SPF (check the product’s page to be sure), you can use them in conjunction with sunscreen. Layer sunscreen over your regular vegan face cream for full protection. Try Alba Botanica Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen or Babo Botanicals Clear Zinc Sport Stick. We have vegan sunscreens to suit everyone so remember to protect yourself!
Which face cream is best for winter?
Colder and windy weather in winter can wreak havoc on our skin. Even indoors, increased use of central heating can suck the moisture from our skin. Dry skin is an incredibly common winter complaint. Skin can feel tight or become red and flaky. As well as drinking plenty of water, it’s important to choose an extra-moisturizing natural face cream that will keep your beautiful face hydrated! We recommend using Acure's Brightening Night Cream to work its magic as you sleep. You’ll be ready to face anything in the morning!
