It may be time to get rid of your environment-harming, skin-burning makeup remover wipes, and hop on the micellar water train. Micellar water is becoming increasingly popular, however, this leads to many people wondering whether micellar water is vegan or not.
Yes, most micellar waters are vegan, however it often depends specifically on the brand. There are many brands which specialise in vegan products, so these will be the safest options, especially if you’re looking for a cruelty free micellar water, too.
A popular micellar water brand is Garnier. They produce micellar waters for sensitive skin, dry skin, combination skin, and their newest one contains rose water. Many people who use these products search for whether they are vegan, however it is not specified on their site. When Bevoir reached out to Garnier, their response was, “our micellar water is vegan”. However, some people speculate around Garnier’s ingredients.
Several brands have formulated affordable vegan micellar waters such as:
- B.Pure Micellar Water available from Superdrug
- Flawless Micellar Water which comes in a glass bottle and is both vegan and cruelty-free
- Milky Oil from Glossier, a combination of micellar water and oil to melt off your makeup
Several micellar water products do not explicitly state that they are vegan. So, in order to know whether your micellar water is vegan or not, just look for the vegan icon or statement which should be present if it does not contain animal derived ingredients. An added bonus is if it is cruelty-free. We stan cruelty-free vegan brands and products.
