National Vegan Lipstick Day

February 28, 2023 All day

February 28th is National Vegan Lipstick Day!

Vegan lipstick is a type of cosmetic product that is made without using any animal products or byproducts. Traditional lipsticks may contain ingredients like beeswax, carmine (a red pigment made from crushed beetles), or lanolin (a wax-like substance derived from sheep’s wool), which are not vegan.

Instead of these animal-derived ingredients, vegan lipsticks typically use plant-based waxes, oils, and pigments. Some common plant-based ingredients in vegan lipsticks include candelilla wax, carnauba wax, jojoba oil, and various fruit and vegetable extracts for color.

In addition to being cruelty-free and ethical, vegan lipstick may also be a good option for people with sensitive skin, as it generally contains fewer artificial and synthetic ingredients. There are many different brands and shades of vegan lipstick available on the market, ranging from affordable drugstore options to high-end luxury brands.

On this day, we appreciate the choices we have in makeup and, especially vegan lipstick!

Happy National Vegan Lipstick Day!
