July 15th is National Clean Beauty Day and it celebrates the clean beauty movement. At Velour, clean beauty means using cruelty-free methods, choosing our suppliers carefully, and innovating for the most sustainable processes. Clean beauty can mean a lot of different things for different brands and consumers so it’s up to you to decide what clean means to you and choose your beauty items accordingly.
According to National Today, Clean Beauty Day was coined by Juice Beauty, the ‘OG’ of this movement as named by ELLE, Cosmo, Forbes, and more. It was set up to raise awareness about the use of plant-based ingredients that are sustainably and ethically sourced. The brand and its movement focused on the avoidance of harmful ingredients in beauty products with the health of our bodies and the environment in mind. Like many other brands, we’re trying to lead on sustainable innovation and ensure our products are clean, vegan, and cruelty-free.
Below are our clean beauty routine essentials and the reasons why we absolutely love them!
One of our biggest innovations in 2022 has been hemp-derived lash fibres. All components of our Plant Fibre false lashes, from band to fibres, are derived from plants. These plant lashes also come in recyclable packing and are 90% biodegradable. Plant Fibre lashes also look natural and whispy on the eyes, ticking all the boxes for the ‘to-go’ false lashes that feel and look good!
Start your day by applying Plant Fibre false lashes for a natural-looking (and feeling) makeup look. Thanks to the soft cotton band and lightweight fibres, the plant lashes are super comfortable for a full day of wear!
Long & Strong Lash Serum
Another innovation of ours this year is the Long & Strong Lash Serum. Compared to other serums, Velour’s Lash Serum has a non-irritating formula that is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. It is made with botanical extracts to help nourish and condition your lashes with results in just 6 weeks. Additionally, it is ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested.
Bazaar named our Lash Serum as one of the ‘11 Best Lash Serums for fuller, longer and healthier lashes’ while Cosmopolitan named it one of the ‘33 Best Eyelash Serums for Long Lashes in 2022’.
After you’ve removed your makeup, end your day with Lash Serum as part of your eye-care routine. Apply the serum to each eye before you go to sleep and the serum will hydrate your lashes and nurture them overnight, making them healthier and stronger-looking.

Reuse Me Cotton Pads
The most sustainable cotton pads ever! Our eco bamboo Cotton Pads can be used up to 1,000 times and come in 100% fully recyclable packaging. They are also chemical-free, fragrance-free, and lint-free (no fibres are left behind). Their unique shape and size ensure optimal weight and absorption (perfect to pair with our Lash Clean).
In your beauty routine, you can use bamboo cotton pads to remove makeup at the end of the day, apply a toner, or clean false lashes! Learn more here.
The clean beauty movement is here and we’re so happy to be a part of it. We hope to keep on optimizing our processes and innovating our products to ensure that everything we offer is good for your skin, body, and the environment.
