The Ultimate Cruelty-Free and Vegan Skin Care Regime for Men


Giovanni Eco Chic Cosmetics

This company prides itself on never testing on animals. Most of their products are vegan and range from body care to hair care. Their products can be found at just about any grocery store and pharmacy. Most of them range from $8-$15, which makes them affordable.

Bold For Men

This 3-in-1 shave gel (Pre-Shave, Shave, After-Shave) creates the ultimate experience for those who love a clean shave. This company specializes in creating a non-greasy, transparent gel that allows for the closest shave. The biggest perk is that it’s a dry shave – no water is required, and it can even be used with an electric razor. This gel is full of essential oils that are great for your skin and will make you smell incredible!

From sunscreen to toothpaste, this company has it all. They use pure, plant-based ingredients and do not participate in any kind of animal testing. They’re even supporters of Beagle Freedom Project, a foundation that rescues dogs from cosmetic testing. This company is very proud of the transparency they have with their customers.

Desert Essence

These personal care products are crafted with love. You’ll find items for hair, skin, dental and body care as well as oils and bath supplies. They contain nature’s best ingredients such as aloe vera, bamboo, cedar wood, neem, tea tree oil and more. Even their palm oil is sustainably sourced. And yet again, no animal testing is done! Most health food stores house this company’s products – they’re definitely worth trying out.

Nature’s Gate

This business offers dozens of ‘wholistic’ beauty products, from shampoos and conditioners to body and oral care. Their products are free of parabens, sulfates and even mineral oil. They’re a vegan-friendly company, only using natural ingredients that have never been tested on animals. Each product is reasonably priced and can be found at any health food store.
