Out of all beauty products, finding vegan waxing kits is probably the hardest. Waxing products are heavy on animal-derived ingredients, most commonly beeswax and honey. Also, lanolin, a greasy emollient derived from sheep’s wool, is often found in waxing products.
We set out to find the best vegan waxing kits on the market. Vegan waxing products are mostly based on sugar (also known as sugaring kits). Luckily, we were also able to find actual wax kits made with animal-free waxes from plants, tree resin, and synthetic ingredients.
All home waxing kits we list below are both vegan and cruelty-free. This means the kits are free from animal-derived ingredients and have not been tested on animals. Happy waxing!

Best Vegan Waxing Kit Overall
Nad’s Natural Wax Strip Kit is the best vegan waxing kit. The kit is very easy to use, affordable, and includes 3 different sizes of wax strips for the body and face. The wax uses synthetic beeswax and the strips themselves are primarily made of plant-based materials.
Not all Nad’s waxing kits are vegan as some of them contain real beeswax. The brand is PETA-certified animal test-free and has many vegan-friendly options.
Best Organic Vegan Waxing Kit
Parissa offers the best organic vegan waxing kits. Being hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and made with USDA-certified organic ingredients, it’s the best vegan waxing kit for sensitive skin. The microwavable formula is easy to use and it leaves the skin clean and smooth.
Parissa is a Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty-free brand. The company is not entirely vegan but you can browse Parissa’s selection of vegan waxes here.
Best Vegan Sugaring Kit
The best vegan sugaring kit comes from Sugardoh – a female and BIPOC-owned cruelty-free brand from Austin. Sugaring is an excellent way to get rid of hair while exfoliating the skin. You can use this kit all over your body. The result is soft and smooth without any ingrown hair.
Best Vegan Waxing Strips
Luxe Peach offers the best cruelty-free vegan waxing strips. They remove even the most stubborn hair and leave the skin satin smooth. What’s best, the strips are infused with organic coconut and rosehip oils to nurture the skin. The strips are ethically made in Spain.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Full Body
This certified vegan and cruelty-free waxing kit is a great multifunctional kit for the whole body. It’s gentle and natural using primarily vegan sugar syrup and water. Be it legs, face, underarms, or tattoo regions – this eco-friendly sugaring wax does a great job with minimal pain.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Legs And Armpits
For legs and armpits, we recommend The Wax Kit from Billie. These are very easy-to-use wax strips that are perfectly sized. We love the gel wax formula that includes nourishing avocado oil. The pain only lasts for a second but the result is worth it – silky smooth and hydrated skin.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Bikini Area
Tress Wellness Waxing Kit is the best vegan waxing kit for the bikini area, especially for a Brazilian wax. The kit comes with hard tree resin wax beans, a wax warmer, waxing strips, and pre and post-wax sprays. This kit is not for you if prefer natural ingredients. But it does the job well.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Face
We found these vegan face waxing strips from Target and we love them. The set has 20 waxing strips, 6 post-waxing wipes, and a calming serum. It’s affordable, easy to use, non-irritating, and packed with hydrating and soothing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed oil.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Upper Lip
No Mo-Stache has the best vegan waxing strips for the upper lip. The strips remove facial hair quickly and painlessly. Just warm the strips in your hands for 20 seconds and wax away. The best part of the kit is the post-waxing vegan aloe cream – it’s so moisturizing and calming.
Best Vegan Waxing Kit For Eyebrows
Another winner from Parisse is their vegan brow waxing pen. We love this pen for its precision and ease of use. You apply the wax with the pen and use the epilation strips to move all the unwanted eyebrow hair. The set also has soothing oil to avoid post-wax irritation.
We hope you enjoyed our list of the best at-home vegan waxing kits. While getting your waxing done with a professional is always the more effective (and painless) choice, it’s good to know you can also remove hair in the comfort of your home. In a vegan and cruelty-free way.
While most waxing products on our list are vegan sugaring kits, we were glad also to find some vegan waxes made with synthetic beeswax, plant waxes, or tree resin. If we should find new vegan waxing kits we like, we will add them to this list.
