Foot scrubs are a nice pampering treatment for your feet. Foot scrubs help buff away dead skin and soften rough and dry skin and heels. Foot scrubs usually include a scrubbing agent such as sugar, salt, coffee, or pumice coupled with some refreshing or moisturizing oils.
While the scrubbing particles in foot scrubs are usually vegan, foot scrubs as a product are not always vegan-friendly. Foot scrubs often include animal-derived ingredients such as beeswax or honey. Many drugstore foot scrubs can be also tested on animals.
We have listed our favorite vegan foot scrubs for you to choose from. In 2023, you can find many great scrubs that are made without animal ingredients and have not been tested on animals. These scrubs are also natural and chemical-free.
