Vegan, clean, and all-natural beauty products have been increasing in popularity in recent years. Consumers are looking for products that are good for them, good for the environment, and good for animals. As one of the biggest names in beauty, Sephora has several vegan makeup, skincare, and haircare options. We here at Groupon Coupons want to make it easy for shoppers to find exactly what they’re looking for, so we compiled this guide to shopping Sephora for vegan makeup and more.

Ever looked at the ingredients list on a product and not recognized many of the items on the list? It can be hard to decipher what ingredients are, and which ones are questionable, with so much confusing and misleading jargon out there. (See the list of common non-vegan ingredients below for some examples of that confusing and misleading jargon.)
Simply put, vegan beauty products are not made with any animal products. Look for phrases like “cruelty-free” and “no animal by-products.” To break it down, cruelty-free means that the product was not tested on animals—but it may still contain animal ingredients. And vice versa, a product may be fully vegan, but still be tested on animals. Be sure to look for both for a brand that is truly vegan.
Sephora offers several high-end and affordable brands with vegan beauty products. Some of the most popular brands in the Sephora vegan collection include:

Because they avoid animal products and by-products, vegan products tend to have more natural and plant-based ingredients—this means more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential nutrients. Vegan products also tend to have fewer harsh chemicals and fewer ingredients in general. This can help you avoid damaging your hair and skin. And natural ingredients are typically better for sensitive skin.
