Can't Find Vegan Cosmetics?

Whether you are vegan or just care about what you put on your skin, you have discovered that cosmetics and beauty products without animal products or animal testing are as hard to find as hens' teeth.

Fortunately, there is a solution and the store is only as far away as your keyboard.

There's a new beauty shop on the virtual block: Called Vegan Beauty Market. It's a one-stop shop for cosmetics, personal skin care and body products. From Pangea Organics to Aubrey Organics, they've got great green beauty finds and offer free shipping on orders over $49 -- in the United States only. Plus, you'll receive free samples with every order.

Founded on the belief that animal testing and using animal products in cosmetics is an unnecessary practice, Vegan Beauty Market stocks only cruelty-free and vegan products. "I envision the store to be a one-stop shop for vegans and eco-conscious consumers alike," says owner Kelly Merkel in a press release.

"Choosing beauty products that are completely cruelty-free should be fun and convenient. Now vegans have a central place to find amazing products for enhancing their everyday beauty," she continues.

The site is easy to navigate, items are searchable by product, and there are options for children as well as adults. Product listings include ingredients. When it comes to shipping, they strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible and reuse packaging peanuts from suppliers and past shipments.
