To mark International Vegan Day and World Vegan Month (throughout the month of November), why not give vegan beauty products a try? For newbies, keep in mind that vegan products are defined as those not containing a single animal-derived ingredient, such as beeswax or lanolin. The term cruelty-free doesn’t necessarily mean that they are vegan either, so be sure to do a thorough check before making a purchase. 

For those looking to try going vegan this month (at least with their beauty regime), here are six vegan face and body moisturisers to try:

Nomel Simple Weightless Gel Cream
