With a science-based approach rooted in nature, Elan cares for healthy and beautiful skin from head to toe. The brand's focus is on developing quality plant-based,vegan skincare using non-toxic, non-polluting green chemistry. Their dermatologically tested organic range has won multiple awards over the years, including the Beauty Bible award. What makes Elan truly unique in the vegan beauty sphere is their blend of natural ingredients with clinically proven actives that help the skin thrive. Elan Skincare is British-made, and it takes pride in being a company made by women for women.

Founder

Joanna Silva had a decade of product development in wound care and infection prevention under her belt before launching Elan Skincare. She embarked on this journey in 2017 with a clear vision of creating a trustworthy, transparent and vegan skincare brand strongly founded in science, nature and art.

“We can now see a clear shift towards veganism in all areas of life. Veganism is no longer limited to food. Vegan beauty is more than a trend and is here to stay and gain momentum. Vegan beauty is compellingly beautiful, more ethical, and sustainable.” 

People

Elan Skincare carefully chooses their suppliers and collaborators, and takes great care to remunerate their employees fairly. All are paid at least the minimum London wage.

Production

All Elan Skincare products are handmade in the company's London studio.

Packaging

The brand aims to preserve and care for nature and play their part in ending plastic pollution. To this end, they choose glass, aluminium, and biodegradable packaging. Committed to making sustainable choices, the company uses 100% recycled paper in their offices, recycle their ink cartridges, and craft their marketing materials from either fully recycled paper or cotton t-shirts, re-purposing waste from the fashion industry. The brand's cotton bags are made from Oeko-Tex Certified Cotton that are re-used by customers.

Animals

Elan Skincare is dedicated to being free from animal testing, and they are also a 100% vegan brand, rejecting the use of any animal-derived ingredients.

That’s a hard one as ‘best’ is personal! Immaculate Vegan has one of the largest collections of vegan trainers from a wide variety of brands from across the globe. Take a look! Our best sellers come from BeFlamboyant, Humans are Vain, Yatay, Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather, Ration.L and Komrads.

Vegan trainers (and sneakers) are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. Vegan shoes are made of a variety of fabrics, traditionally synthetic but increasingly using innovative materials derived from nature with all the properties of leather, such as apple leather, cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). Many synthetic trainers are now made using recycled plastics from ocean trash.

That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Canvas trainers are not waterproof, vegan or otherwise. But most of our trainers are water-resistant and some are also waterproof, as well durable and 100% vegan.

The quick answer: yes! But you can make them last longer by taking care of the shoes. Just as you would care for animal-leather trainers, you should look after your vegan leather trainers. With proper care, vegan trainers can last anywhere from two to five years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.

Yes! As far as we are concerned they are.

The British call them trainers, because they can be used for sports or training.

The Americans call them sneakers, presumably because, being soft-soled, they're suitable for sneaking around in!

But to confuse things further, they are also called tennis shoes in the US.

Vegan sandals are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. There' a wide variety of materials that can be used to make vegan sandals, including polyurethane (also known as PU), apple leather, pineapple leather (Pinatex), cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). In addition, some vegan sandals are also made from recycled materials, such as recycled polyester or other recycled fibres.

Many vegan sandals now are made using high quality and durable materials, and many of the new vegan leathers are of very high quality. But you can make your vegan sandals last longer by taking care of them well. With proper care, vegan sandals can last for many years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.

Vegan materials tend to have a much lower carbon footprint and be much be kinder to the environment than animal leather, which is one of the most environmentally damaging materials used in fashion. Whilst there are vegan materials such as PVC which are toxic and harmful, none of the vegan sandals or products at Immaculate Vegan contain PVC. We also choose to partner with brands who are creating the most sustainable vegan sandals possible, using the most sustainable vegan materials.

There's really no difference here between vegan and non vegan sandals – it all depends on the quality and fit of the brand and the styles you choose. We partner with premium footwear brands at Immaculate Vegan to bring you vegan shoes that are high quality, stylish and comfortable.

Whilst not all brands are equal, at Immaculate Vegan we select footwear brands making high quality, stylish and cruelty free vegan sandals and shoes.

That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Canvas and fabric vegan sandals are not waterproof, vegan or otherwise. But some of our vegan sandals are water-resistant and some are also waterproof, as well as durable and 100% vegan.
