Essence Vegan Products List for AW 2018/2019

Essence vegan products

UPDATE: A new list of Essence Vegan Makeup is now available!

Not sure if it is due to my Essence vegan products lists, but I noticed that there is the misconception about Essence Cosmetics being a cruelty-free and vegan brand. Essence Cosmetics state to be cruelty-free. This means that you won’t find them listed on the leaping bunny list as they believe that after the ban animal test of March 2013 there is no need for European brands to be certified cruelty-free.

However, I know of some European brands who are still considered to support animal testing. So since Essence Cosmetics is not yet certified as a cruelty-free brand I mark it in grey in my cruelty-free list. I am not saying that it is not cruelty-free. What I am saying is that it’s just not certified, i.e. there was no check on whether it really tests on animals or not. So we need to trust that they are cruelty-free. Until PETA or any similar organisation exposes them or proves them wrong, I am still buying essence products.

With regards to whether Essence Cosmetics are vegan, the answer is that they are not fully vegan. Some of their products are accidentally vegan. This means that they weren’t planning to create vegan products but these products happen to contain no animal-derived ingredients. However, please note that only a few of their large collection is vegan, that is why every two seasons I publish the Essence vegan products list.
