Clean Beauty Gift Guide: The Virtuous Vegan

It’s not enough to be simply free from animal cruelty and animal-derived ingredients – this devotee demands skincare gifts with the credentials to back it up. This season, impress the vegan in your life with our favourite natural formulations, certified by the UK Vegetarian Society.

Flora Probiotic Skin-Rescue Hyaluronic Mask 75ml

Certified vegan


This dermatologically tested mask for sensitive skin is a soothing treatment for skin that is suffering from irritation, redness, or blemishes. Choosing a gentle, natural formula such as Flora helps to protect your delicate microbiome, prevents moisture loss, and contributes to a balanced pH level. The result: calm, clear, hydrated skin.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially skin that is sensitive, stressed, or blemished.

Glow Vitamin C Daily Serum

Certified vegan

The potent vegan beauty ingredients in this brightening serum cultivate luminous, dewy skin like no other. Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol, helps smooth fine lines without irritating skin like its synthetic counterpart. Natural hyaluronic acid, derived from plants, intensively hydrates while Kakadu plum, a rich Australian superfruit, contains up to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges to plump and protect.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially dull and lacklustre skin.

Divine Face Oil Rosehip & Avocado Oil 30ml

Certified vegan & organic

Divine Face Oil | Virtuous Vegan Gift Guide | Antipodes UK

A nutrient-rich, certified organic face oil that helps to deliver essential nourishment for fresh, healthy skin. The best news? It’s the best face oil for glowing skin of all types, oily and dry alike. That’s because natural oils help balance and regulate natural oil production (sebum), while instantly refreshing and moisturising the epidermis. For animals and for skin, it’s a win-win.

The perfect gift for: Dry, combination, and normal skin, especially when skin is stressed or flaky.

Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream 30ml

Certified vegan

Kiwi Seed Oil | Virtuous Vegan Gift Guide | Antipodes UK

Luscious yet light, this fragrance-free anti-ageing eye cream provides a cooling and soothing treatment for the delicate eye area. Kiwi seed oil is rich in Vitamin C for skin to help rescue damaged tissue and gently help smooth the appearance of fine lines – which is why one of these premium glass jars sells every six minutes, somewhere in the world.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially those wishing to target fine lines.

Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream 60ml

Certified vegan & organic

Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream | Virtuous Vegan Gift Guide | Antipodes UK

A gentle, light, and non-oily anti-ageing cream to enhance skin’s natural hydration. Nutrient-rich avocado oil helps create a healthy, plumped visage while antibacterial manuka flower oil promotes the perfect blemish-free complexion. You can thank avocado oil’s high levels of plant compounds called phytosterols for transforming tired and stressed skin.

The perfect gift for: Oily and combination skin types.

Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream 60ml

Certified vegan

Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream | Virtuous Vegan Gift Guide | Antipodes UK

A sleep-in probiotic cream that revitalises skin that’s out of balance. Probiotics (also known as ‘good bacteria’) strengthen the skin’s barrier against moisture loss and stimulate natural hyaluronic acid in skin cells for a calm, clear, hydrated complexion – achieved through all vegan ingredients.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially those with skin that is particularly stressed.

Delight Hand & Body Cream 120ml

Certified vegan

Delight Hand and Body Cream | Virtuous Vegan Gift Guide | Antipodes UK

A high-performance creamy vegan moisturiser to rescue the dry skin of the hands and body. Silky macadamia nut oil is prized for its high palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) to richly hydrate and leave skin cushiony smooth.

The perfect gift for: All skin types.
