The beauty industry is making a lot of progress every year and with it, it has become more conscious and responsible as well. Veganism is one such area where it has shown a lot of growth. It is a crucial part of vegans (those people who do not consume animal products and their byproducts). They look for beauty products that are vegan too. In recent times, beauty brands in India are catching up and we do not need to look to foreign shores for vegan picks. These brands are changing the face of beauty in the country.
In this article, we present five Indian vegan beauty products that are changing the face of makeup, skin, and hair in India.

As evident from its name, the company makes sure that it offers the best of nature without harming the environment. Founded in 2003, The Nature’s Co. was started by Natasha Jog, taking inspiration from the forces of nature. Along with being a vegan brand, it uses natural ingredients and is PETA certified (no tests on animals).
One of the biggest contributors towards animal cruelty is the makeup industry, but that doesn’t mean you should abstain from makeup completely if you do not want to harm animals and the environment.
