Vegan Cosmetics Market

Once considered a niche concept, the vegan cosmetics market has entered the mainstream. In fact, being vegan is no longer enough of a differentiator for products to stand out. The vegan cosmetics industry has become very competitive, requiring continuous innovation and development to stand out from similar animal-free products.

What Are Vegan Cosmetics?

The vegan cosmetics market includes makeup, personal care, and hair care products. Vegan cosmetics are made using zero animal or animal-derived ingredients. This includes cosmetic product formulations related to the exploitation of animals, such as beeswax, collagen, gelatin, honey and milk. Vegan also refers to products free-from animal testing as well.

The cosmetics industry is experiencing the powerful effects of the vegan movement as eco-friendly consumers become increasingly conscious about the ingredients and manufacturing methods behind their favorite beauty brands.

Who Makes Up the Vegan Cosmetics Market?

Today’s consumers are well informed. They are concerned about sustainable living, the environment, and their overall health. Research shows that the vegan cosmetics market is primarily younger consumers, including Millennials and members of Generation Z, who are driving the trend.

These consumers are also more likely to embrace a plant-based diet. They tend to actively seek out personal care brands that formulate with natural ingredients and embrace ethical values, such as being fair trade or cruelty-free.

In the minds of modern-day consumers, quality cosmetic products and clean, vegan beauty go hand-in-hand.

The Vegan Cosmetics Market Keeps Growing

Since 2013, the vegan cosmetics market has experienced a 175% increase. This growth indicates that consumers are committed to making a conscious effort to use cruelty-free products that are free-from animal ingredients.

According to a report by Grand View Research, the global market for vegan cosmetics is expected to reach $20.8 billion by 2025. “Major cosmetics manufacturing companies across the globe are realizing the importance of making products that use ingredients, which are mineral-based or plant-based, rather than manufacturing products that are infused with animal extracted ingredients. Vegan cosmetics are gaining popularity due to their superior properties.”

This is a trend that can no longer be viewed as a fad. Vegan cosmetics are here to stay.
