Cruelty-Free And Vegan Face Scrubs To Make You Feel Brand New

The best cruelty-free and vegan face scrub

As with all health and beauty products, you never know what could be added to them that stop them from being vegan or cruelty-free. This includes face scrubs too. 

So, as usual, we must do a bit of research to find exactly what we’re looking for. But it doesn’t mean that us vegan folk don’t deserve a nice face scrub from time to time.

When your face is feeling a little dry and tired there’s nothing much better than a vegan face scrub to help you feel fresh and smooth again.

But it’s not always easy to get your hands on a vegan or cruelty-free face scrub. Or sometimes the problem is simply knowing whether or not it’s vegan-friendly. That’s why I’ve created this list of vegan and cruelty-free face scrubs.

I hope you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for and scrub your way to silky-smoothness!

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Face Scrubs:

1. Vitamin C Glow Cleansing Polish – The Body Shop


This vegan face scrub leaves your face feeling noticeably softer and it’s suitable for all skin types. It is made with 92% ingredients of natural origin and is infused with camu camu berry extract. These little berries are packed with vitamin C and bring that extra glow.

This Gingersnap face scrub from Ethique has something different, and that’s because it comes in little bars like soap but it exfoliates the skin. You simply just use the oval bars to buff away old skin cells and the result is soft and smooth-feeling skin. It’s made using brown sugar, ginger and a little cinnamon, but it’s not for eating!

BAO Skincare - Radiance Face Scrub - cruelty-free face scrub

This super soft vegan face scrub really feels like a treat and leaves you with a radiant complexion. It’s so soft on the skin because it uses natural jojoba grains to exfoliate and these grains are gentle on the skin. It also has shea butter which nourishes and soothes.

4. Lavera – 3in1 Wash-Scrub-Mask

Lavera is another vegan skincare brand that I’m a big fan of. They use a wonderful range of plant-based, natural and organic ingredients. 

This vegan face scrub is more than just a face scrub, it’s a 3in1 Wash-Scrub-Mask that uses salicylic acid to fight spots and calm skin. It’s made using organic mint so after it cleans and exfoliates your skin it will leave you feeling fresh.

Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub

This all-in-one cruelty-free and vegan face scrub does a bit of everything so you’ll never want to be too far from it. It can be used as a scrub, mask or face wash. It’s perfect for when you want to keep things simple. It’s also enriched with tea tree oil that is said to help with oily and blemished skin.

This is a cream-based revitalising facial scrub best for normal to dry skin. 

Sukin is a vegan and cruelty-free brand that creates products that include all the good stuff but they leave out the bad stuff. 

This cruelty-free facial scrub from Sukin is made using bamboo and walnut shells for exfoliation, chamomile to calm the skin and aloe vera to moisturise.
