Nicole Kidman and 10 Other Celebrities Investing in Vegan Beauty
Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman recently announced that she invested in Vegamour – a vegan, cruelty-free haircare brand, which prioritizes biodiversity and the environment. Kidman joins a growing number of celebrities who are investing in vegan and cruelty-free beauty brands that care about sustainability.
The brand sources its ingredients through fair-trade partnerships throughout Southern Africa and the world. Kidman noted that she joined the company after learning about its environmentally-conscious practices.
“It wasn’t about being the face of the brand or selling products, but being an advocate for a holistically-minded lifestyle that prioritizes self-care,” Kidman said in a statement. “Once I learned about where they source ingredients and how they are supporting those communities through ethical harvesting, I knew that I wanted to support that mission.”
Vegamour Expands Internationally With Nicole Kidman's Help
Last May, Vegamour rolled out its products at 400 Sephora stores and plans to broaden its distribution to the world soon. The company revealed that this partnership with Kidman will help its efforts to expand into the retail sector and international e-commerce. The brand also intends to bolster its partnerships with women-owned businesses.
Kidman’s interest in the company started with her personal hair routine. Kidman claims that her personal usage of Vegamour’s products helped heal her hair following decades of coloring, processing, and straightening, noting that some of her favorite products include the GRO Revitalizing Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Serum.
“When I was younger, I didn’t pay enough attention to my hair, especially considering the demands of my career,” Kidman said. “I’ve realized that our hair deserves as much attention and care as we give to the rest of our bodies. My perception of self-care has expanded. I am in tune with my hair, and all of the important elements of myself that impact my hair health.
