New to the world of veganism? Or have you got your vegan beauty down and want to expand your conscious purchases into health and lifestyle? At Superdrug, we want to make your shop as easy as possible, so, in celebration of World Vegan Day, we’ve put together this go-to guide to vegan healthcare (and a few pampering products thrown in for good measure) currently available online and in our stores.
What is World Vegan Day?
Every year, on November 1st, vegans around the world celebrate their vegan lifestyle. While living a vegan lifestyle isn’t just confined to a single 24 hours, they use this day to champion their choices and educate others on their way of living. While you don’t have to be a vegan to join in on the day, it is an excellent opportunity to tuck into vegan food, educate yourself on issues like animal rights and environmental concerns, and share your thoughts and ideas.
Vegan Products for Mind & Body
So, you’ve got the recipes down. Your skincare routine. And your makeup brushes. But, what about the products you use to unwind?
Our Habitual’s Essential Oils are a great option to support your health and wellbeing. Made from the extracts of flowers, plants, bark, seeds and other amazing things found in nature, our essential oils can be used in many ways.
Want to catch some Zzz’s after a long day? Try adding 2-3 drops of the lavender oil into a warm running bath. Or perhaps you want to kick a cold to the curb? Try adding a few drops of peppermint oil into warm water and inhaling the aroma to soothe your symptoms.

On your feet all day, every day? Or do they just need a bit of TLC? Our vegan-friendly Superdrug Foot Packs could help nourish your tired tootsies and leave them feeling super soft and moisturised. So, which one will you be adding to your basket? Purifying Charcoal? Soothing Tea Tree? Or the deeply nourishing Coconut? Check out the full range here.
For Your Medicine Cupboard
It may surprise anyone new to the vegan way of life that certain health products and supplements may not be suitable for vegans. For example, the coating on medication often contains gelatine, while supplements could contain ingredients like lactose or collagen. While, of course, this is not always the case, keep a beady eye out on the ingredients list, or a vegan logo clearly displayed on our Own Brand line of products to be sure.
Discover vegan health products in our healthcare aisles from hayfever relief and vitamin C supplements to condoms and allergy nasal sprays. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to strike up a convo with one of our team in-store.
Expert nutritional advice
Did you know that you can book a nutritional screening test with us? If you follow a plant-based or restricted diet, you may be missing vital nutrients and minerals that your body needs to thrive.
The screening will test you for several essential vitamins and minerals. From your results, our doctors will be able to advise whether you might benefit from wellbeing support such as daily vitamins or supplements.
