Vegan Beauty and Personal-Care Products From Trader Joe’s

Published by .

We already love Trader Joe’s delicious vegan foods, but did you know that this grocery chain also sells affordable beauty products that are never tested on animals? Most of them are vegan, too, which means they’re made without any animal-derived ingredients. Beauty should never come at the expense of animals, whether they’re mice subjected to terrifying, painful, and irrelevant laboratory tests or bees exploited to make beeswax. So keep your beauty routine animal-friendly without breaking the bank with these vegan products from Trader Joe’s.*

Brazil Nut Body Butter

Trader Joe’s sells several scented body butters, including this Brazil Nut Body Butter and a seasonal Pumpkin Body Butter.

Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

We love this affordable dupe for the popular Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen, which doesn’t leave a white residue.

Watermelon Facial Mist

The hydrating and skin-softening ingredients in this product make it perfect for achieving glowing skin.

Rose Water Facial Toner and Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream

For a refreshing pick-me-up, try this toner. The floral scented hand cream is also available seasonally.

Cucumber + Citrus Face and Body Wipes

Want spa towels on the go? Try these wipes, which are perfect for travel.

Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo Bar

Cut down on plastic waste by switching to a shampoo bar. This one contains peppermint and tea tree oils, which are great for scalp health.

Retinol Night Serum

Here’s an affordable retinol serum for your skin rejuvenating needs.

Marula Facial Oil

If your skin needs a little extra moisture, try this facial oil.

Spray Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+

This spray sunscreen makes for an easy, lightweight application.

Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub

Alpha-hydroxy acids take care of the exfoliating, while colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil, and other plant extracts soothe your skin.

Spa Lavender Hand and Body Lotion

This lotion smells like heaven and lasts for months, depending on how willing you are to share with family and friends. At $4.99, we think it’s a great bargain.

Refresh Citrus Body Wash

If you thought that your morning shower couldn’t get any more invigorating, think again. This delicious body wash will awaken your senses with the smell of fresh citrus. What a welcome wake-up call!

Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap

Dr. Bronner’s fresh-smelling peppermint soap is sold both as bars and in liquid form—and the bars last so long that they’re worth every penny. (Make the most of the liquid soap by diluting it.)

Micellar Cleanser & Makeup Remover Towelettes

Towelettes are most effective when used between washing your face and moisturizing, to clean off any residual grime that lingered after the wash.

Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

These affordable gems are a great addition to your daily hair-care regimen and are packed with vitamin E and argan oil.

Tea Tree Oil Pure Vegetable Soap

This bar soap’s simple and effective formula is perfect for the hands, body, and face. It also works well to prevent breakouts.

Vitamin E Oil

You can use this affordable vitamin E oil for dry cuticles and cracked heels as well as for smoothing split ends, among many other uses.

100% Pure Jojoba Oil

This store clearly has all your oil needs covered. Jojoba is fantastic for skin because it’s structurally close to human sebum—this means that it’s similar to your skin’s natural oils. It doesn’t feel greasy or clog pores. We’re in!

Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream

Trader Joe’s set out to develop a high-quality, travel-size lotion at an affordable price. It hit the nail on the head with this formula, made of 20 percent shea butter, hemp oil, and vitamins C and E.

Tom’s of Maine Deodorant

Trader Joe’s sells this effective Tom’s deodorant at a lower price than most other stores. If it’s not already a staple in your bathroom cabinet, pick some up soon.

Moisturizing Cream Shave

It smells of two delicious natural scents—honey and mango—but this shaving cream thankfully leaves all the sweet stuff for the bees and doesn’t contain any real honey.

Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste

Tom’s of Maine has been a popular brand for natural personal-care products for over 40 years, but you don’t need us to tell you—the products speak for themselves.

Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash, Shampoo, and Conditioner

Tea tree oil is great for dandruff and dry skin, while also working to help clean and stimulate your scalp. We love these products because the scent of tea tree oil isn’t overwhelming—and the “tingle” might even give you more of a morning buzz than your cup of coffee.
