Sheffield is well renowned for being one of the top vegan-friendly cities in the UK, but does this extend outside of food?
Veganism ensures you aren’t causing harm to non-human species in all aspects of life. Many beauty companies test their products on animals and include animal products in makeup, hair products, and nail varnish.
Luckily for us, some amazing beauticians and hairdressers are championing vegan products in their salons so we can experience a little bit of luxury completely guilt-free!
This is our guide to Vegan-Friendly Beauty in Sheffield.
