Best Vegan Grooming Products for Men
We welcome all vegans here at Cosmetify: we don't mind if you're a level 5 vegan that doesn't eat anything that casts a shadow, a purely diet-based vegan or someone who's just giving it a trial run this January. You don't even need to have a vegan diet to enjoy plant-based grooming products, after all, nothing quite compares to the power of nature.
We encourage you to explore the best vegan options available, and after a slow start, male grooming is now keeping up with the vegan movement. There are numerous brands that solely produce vegan products, such as Le Labo and Noble Panacea, and now major brands, like Paul Mitchell, The Ordinary and D.S & Durga line much of their collection with vegan goodness. There has never been a better time to jump on that fast-moving vegan bandwagon.
We've scoured our site and found the very best vegan products in skin care, whether it's an entirely organic moisturiser or a cruelty-free cleanser. For those with luscious locks, we've also furrowed through our shampoos and styling products so you can keep your hair looking on-point. We even have some vegan deodorants to keep you smelling fresh.
Browse through our favourites below to keep your skin feeling smooth, hair looking slick and your whole body finely scented. As good as you feel after admiring yourself in the mirror, you feel even better once you realise you can bask in your handsome appearance completely guilt-free.
We're kicking off with a few fragrances, but this opener isn't just any fragrance, it's one of the most popular male scents on the market.
Uniquely invigorating, the deluxe elixir opens with earthy accords of incense, cedar and tonka that smoothly descend into striking tones of geranium and apple. It's as charming as it sounds, and trust us, you'll never receive as many compliments as when you're wearing Y by YSL.
Le Labo have established themselves as one of the go-to brands for distinct aromas, and the Santal 33 Eau De Parfum is the leading star in a collection bursting with sparkling scents.
Inspired by the quiet confidence of an American Cowboy meandering across the desert, it marries deep, warm flavours with uplifting aromas for an irresistible finish. Romantic and seductive, it's made for those intimate occasions where you want to make a lasting impression.
This is deodorant as you've probably never experienced before. Instead of firing a spray into your armpit, this deodorant is a balm that you massage into the skin with your fingers. Don't worry, it's not as weird as it sounds.
The refreshing formula is part of the brand's active range, tailored to those of you who are always at the gym, playing a game of five-a-side or practising your downwards dog during yoga. Give it a go and you might just make the permanent transition to natural, vegan deodorants. After all, you know what they say, once you go balm you never go back (alright, no-one has ever actually said that, but we think it's catchy).
We're worried we scared you off with the creamy balm, so we've brought it back to a more conventional deodorant. However, it's still all completely natural with Malin + Goetz's revolutionary Eucalyptus Deodorant, a key product in the natural deodorant movement.
As opposed to an anti-perspirant which blocks the sweat glands, this soothing spray provides long-lasting protection and negates any unwanted odours. Embrace the uplifting scent of eucalyptus leaves for smooth and freshly scented skin.
We hate to stereotype here at Cosmetify, but there's a credible theory that women age better than men for one reason - men don't bother applying face sunscreen. If you're begrudgingly realising this is true, why not start now and stunt the ageing process?
As well as providing protection against the sun, REN Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 also soothes any irritation and controls oil levels. Adding this to your grooming set is a small step towards maintaining your boyish charms.
Can you tell we're quite big fans of Clinique For Men? In our defence, it's pretty hard not to be, and this exfoliating tonic showcases why we're so obsessed with them.
Incredibly effective and multi-purpose, this potent exfoliator is like a versatile footballer who can play in many positions. It simultaneously unclogs enlarged pores, de-flakes rough skin, minimises blemishes and gets your skin feeling as smooth as you feel.
Bring a bit of Brazilian flair into your bathroom. Harnessing the nutrients of the Amazon, this staple of your shower routine leaves your skin silky-smooth and soft, yet that's not even the best part.
The invigorating body scrub is drenched in intoxicating aromas to lace your skin with the scent of Copacabana Beach. We can't do it justice in words, the irresistible smell needs to be experienced in person.
Lightweight and refreshing, this everyday moisturiser slides comfortably into your grooming kit for a stress-free routine.
Powered by the replenishing power of hyaluronic acid, this cream rehydrates, protects the skin and leaves a smooth finish. Made for men who enjoy a familiar, daily regime.
Now, let us introduce you to something a little bit different. The Nue Co. are a revolutionary brand that you probably haven't heard of, yet once you've sampled their products you won't want to live without them.
Nootro-Focus is a selection of supplements that enhance focus, attention and mental clarity. You know those mornings where your brain is a bit foggy and you can't concentrate? Take a Nootro-Focus supplement and enjoy a more clear, calm and stimulated state of mind.
Standing proud in your bathroom, the blue and white bottle conceals a volumising mousse that gives body to lifeless locks. It's ideal for whenever your hair needs sprucing up before an evening out, whether it's with your mates or with a lucky date. If your locks are limp and dull, this is a must-have to breathe life into them.
The simple, plain white packaging symbolise the no-thrills formula that's inside: as you may have guessed, there is no scent or colour, but endless amount of efficiency.
Suitable for all hair types, especially those of you with sensitive scalps and easily irritated heads, the soothing formula gently cleanses your hair to make it much more manageable. It's perfect for anyone who's struggling with unruly hair.
This one's for the men out there who are noticing a receding hairline and thinning strands whenever they look in the mirror. If that's you, don't panic, there is a solution.
Australian Bodycare provide antidotes in the form of their nourishing hair care products, including this hair serum formula which stimulates hair growth and stunts hair loss. It's the remedy for the present and the future.
Whereas our previous product was for men with thinning hair, this one's for those of you with plenty of hair that needs looking after. Diziak's bestselling conditioner has become an instant cult-favourite for its abundance of benefits: it restores strength, relieves dryness, increases elasticity and locks in moisture.
It's suitable for many hair types, yet more suited to afro hair that is lacking definition.
Paul Mitchell is the ultimate wingman for your hair. The premium brand have become a fan favourite for their deluxe formulas at affordable prices, exemplified by this soothing conditioner.
Suitable for all hair types (we don't want anyone to feel left out here at Cosmetify), the luxurious conditioner softens each strand for smooth and silky locks. It also speeds up the drying process, a welcome change of pace in the morning rush.
I know I said we didn't want anyone to feel left out, but...I lied. This one is just for our curly-haired hunks who wants to accentuate each luscious curl.
Personally, I tried a bath-load of curl-enhancing products but just couldn't find one that actually helped, until I stumbled across this hidden gem. It gives true definition to each curl, stays true throughout the day and leaves each strand soft and smooth. It's undoubtedly my number one styling product for curly hair.
Our bearded friends, you didn't think I'd forgotten about you, did you? We've kept the best til last, and trust us, this premium beard oil was worth the wait.
The apothecary style brown bottle is all you need to maintain a full beard: it softens the hair to make your beard easy to sculpt, soothes the skin underneath and repairs any damaged hairs.
Save space in your beard care kit with this 2-in-1 beard shampoo and conditioner from Bulldog. Designed for men who sport a thick, full beard, it softens the hairs, detangles any knots and eliminates any unwanted impurities that cling to your beard.
If you're having trouble keeping a handle on your beard, this is the solution you've been looking for.
Any of you who have a regular shaving routine need to welcome the wonders of Aloe Vera into your bathroom. The soothing ingredient forms the heart of this cooling gel, working with other nourishing ingredients to hydrate the skin and calm any irritation.
Alongside enriched skin, the gel softens your stubble for a smooth and effortless shave.
We're closing play with a touch of pure luxury. This one's for the modern gent, a man who enjoys the best products for a deluxe grooming process.
Apply the luscious shaving lotion after a smooth shave and feel the cashmere-soft texture of your skin. Better yet, the fresh scent of neroli decorates the bathroom to only amplify the state of elegance.
Right, that's a wrap. You probably didn't realise there were so many top-class vegan items on offer, yet the list is ever-growing. The plant-based option really is just as good as the mainstream alternatives, and more and more men are starting to realise that.
If you've already seen something you like in the blog, we're glad to help you find the product that's missing from your wholesome collection. If you're tempted by the array of avocado and Aloe Vera in grooming, yet you're not quite sure if it's for you, that's fine too, this blog is always here should you change your mind.
